Extension of life forms
Rediscover OGame with the first major expansion in almost a decade! As a natural progression to improve gameplay, the Lifeforms expansion will populate the OGame universe with four species – Humans, Rock’tal, Mechas and Kaelesh, each with their own buildings and technologies. Players can colonize their planets with life forms, manage food production and research new technologies to discover other alien species and expand their empires. Those who develop a diverse civilization and cleverly combine the abilities of the different life forms will have countless new strategies for conquering space at their disposal.
Players have the choice of improving resource extraction and production as influential miners, building an overpowering, destructive fleet as power-hungry emperors, or exploring the endless expanses of space as explorers in search of raw materials and allies. Both veterans and newcomers alike will find the strategy that perfectly suits their playing style.
These four unique species come into play with the Lifeforms expansion:
Humans: This life form is available to all players from the start. Thanks to the development of hyperspace drive in the 21st century, humans have spread throughout the universe. Friendly to other races, they have the best foundations for excellent trade relations. The versatile people offer players a first insight into the various technologies. They are the only people who have the ability to discover other life forms.
Rock’tal: This life form inhabits inhospitable planets that orbit close to the respective sun. With a slowed metabolism and stone-like skin, these creatures brave the extreme heat. The Rock’tal are skilled miners and offer increased resource and energy production. They also have the ability to convert fleets destroyed in attacks on their planets into resources.
Mechas: Controlled by an emotionless artificial intelligence, the Mechas seek only to subjugate all other life forms, steal their resources and improve their own production. They can reproduce faster than other life forms because they are manufactured in factories. The advantages and abilities of the mechas enable them to speed up ship construction. They can also salvage more ships with higher fighting power from battles.
Kaelesh: Due to their innate urge to explore, most Kaelesh spend their lives traveling the endless universe in search of like-minded people. They specialize in technologies that improve exploration. Therefore, they conduct expeditions and research faster, which gives them more resources. The Kaelesh have developed a deep understanding of the universe, making them more likely to create moons and enlarge the moons of the planets they populate.
