Today, Stardock Entertainment announced that prospective entrepreneurs that have a little philanthropic spirit in them will have a chance to play Mohawk Games’ Offworld Trading Company from now until May 6 at 1 PM EST. In addition to saving the world with the Marian economy, the game and its expansion pack will be available for 65% off during this period.
Take on the role of entrepreneur and travel to Mars for an economic showdown against other companies in Offworld Trading Company! You won’t have to worry about affecting your personal profit margins during the free to play weekend on Steam starting at 1:00pm ET on May 3, 2018.
Buy out your competition and take control of the Martian market in a strategy game where money, not military force, is your greatest weapon. The real-time, player-driven market is the foundation of the game, allowing you to buy and sell resources and materials – even the food and water that the colonists need to survive. Build up enough capital and gain access to the lucrative offworld markets so that you can buy out your rivals and claim the Martian economy for yourself.
Battle isn’t limited to the board room; you can use the black market to employ some more… underhanded methods for victory. You – and your opponents – should prepare to deal with pirate raiders, or hackers trying to disrupt production, or a covert electromagnetic pulse to an opponent’s base, and much more.
Connect with friends online in games for up to 8 players, or try one of the single player campaigns, skirmishes, or daily challenges. For more serious players, ranked ladder games will give them the opportunity to earn ranks and prove their worth.
“We’re really excited to be bringing this free weekend to players,” said Soren Johnson, lead designer and president of Mohawk Games. “Offworld has been my passion project – it’s fast paced, deeply strategic, and is awesome in a multiplayer setting. This event is a great opportunity for new people to try out the game with their friends and play with the community of Offworld fans.”
