The Lazax Empire has collapsed into the Twilight Wars, and the great races of the galaxy have retreated back to their home worlds, but now the galaxy is stirring once again and the races are looking into deep space towards the empty throne that sits on Mecatol Rex. Will the galaxy fall under the might of military conquest and be manipulated by the galactic council as a new age dawns? Welcome to Twilight Imperium 4th Edition!
Each player controls a race in this epic game of galactic exploration, expansion, exploitation and extermination. Command a vast ground army of infantry and Space cannons to expand your empire and exploit the resources and influence of new planets. Send out an armada of Spaceships including destroyers, cruisers, carriers, dreadnoughts, war suns under the command of your flagship to explore the galaxy and exterminate all other races!
Spend your resources to build new units and research new technology or spend your influence to manipulate and vote on laws in the Galactic Council. Each of the 17 different alien races has unique abilities and a couple of unit technologies that no other race can get. Each race is suited to a path to victory, but the only limits are those you impose on yourself.
Will you command the Federation of Sol with their orbital drop ability, the Mentak Coalition with their Ambush and Pillage abilities, the unrelenting Sardakk N’Orr or the brilliant, analytical yet fragile Universities of Jol-Nar.
Twilight Imperium 4th Edition is truly an epic game set in the far off future that incorporates space combat, ground combat, political intrigue, research, trading and out manoeuvring in every sense of the word your opponents as you all race to control Mecatol Rex and seize the crown of the fallen Lazax Empire.
Which of the greatest races shall claim the throne and lead a new empire in to the future?
With over 350 plastic military units, hundreds of different cards and hundreds of tokens this is a game for those who like things epic!
