Offworld Trading Company is a real-time strategy game in which money, not
military force, is the weapon. Stake claims to resources, extract and develop
them into goods and upgrades, all while buying and selling in the real-time,
player driven marketplace.
Some of the highlights in The Europa Wager include:
- New planet: Europa
- New resources: Methane, Magnesium
- New buildings: Methane Extractor, Gas and
- New scenarios
The Europa Wager's scenarios provide a host of new challenges to overcome as
you try to establish a new colony that will stand against the frozen elements.
Like the rest of the Offworld series, the expansion brings real-world elements
into its gameplay. For example, although water will not be hard to find on the
frozen moon, aluminum is non-existent.
