Offworld Trading Company’s free multiplayer client is open for business

Has
Offworld Trading Company, the combat-free RTS about big
businesses competing for a slice of Martian pie, now become
renowned enough that we don’t need to stick ‘Soren Johnson’s’
in front of it any more?

The Civ 4 designer’s bullet-free strategy game always did a
smart job of recreating the tension of conflict and agonies
of decision-making within the world of science-fictional
business, but if you’ve long been unconvinced from afar,
here’s a late chance to sample it for no-pennies. Its

promised free multiplayer client, acting as a demo of
uncommon largesse, is out today.

You don’t need a copy of the full game to play the
multiplayer client, and nor does anyone you play against. It
constitutes the full multiplayer mode, but with the
singleplayer campaign, AI skirmish modes and daily challenge
side of things neatly sliced away. Clearly, you can then fork
out for the full game if you have a grand enough time of
things.

Offworld absolutely makes sense as a multiplayer game – in a
lot of ways, it’s a boardgame at heart – so definitely give
this a go if the whole “death-free RTS” concept hasn’t made
sense to you before now. You can grab it from Steam and GOG from today.

If you were already a convert, you may be wanting the
also-new Market Corrections DLC (no GOG page up for
that yet), which adds a dozen new maps and three new
character campaigns, including a robot seeking redemption for
all robot-kind, a former prisoner and a scientist who knows a
thing or two about the crises which made mankind up sticks to
Mars.

That’s also out today, but it’ll cost ya $4 – I don’t know
the UK price yet, but I’ll guess it’s around £3.
