Pax Nova looks like a beautiful combination of Stellaris and Alpha Centauri

The 4X genre is kinda hard to reinvent, the gameplay loop is hardwired into the genres name. You eXplore, you eXpand, you eXploit, and you eXterminate, badda bing badda boom. The only thing that really changes in the 4X genre is the setting and the scope with which you are allowed to play in. Pax Nova is the newest science-fiction 4X to step up to the plate and from the looks of the first gameplay trailer, it looks to expand its scope to 11.

Pax Nova places you on a procedurally generated planet in the middle of the Eos galaxy and tells you to make your way by building a civilization. You can play as one of 15 factions split among three different races or, if you're so inclined, you can create your own faction, with customizable traits. I'm a sucker for this stuff as I love to craft lore in my head as to why the faction I just created are peaceful capitalists who just buy peoples' freedom with loads of cash.
