In the year 2299, decimated by a devastating global nuclear war, humanity abandoned Old Earth with great haste, seeking refuge in the Alpha Centauri star system. After a long and arduous journey, the human remnants settled on an Earth-like planet orbiting the star Proxima Centauri. Having barely escaped extinction, humankind united with one purpose to build their new home.
Over the centuries that followed, as the human race recovered and regained its strength, the struggle for power also intensified. Soon, humanity separated into six factions, each colonizing their own home world and fighting for dominance and control over the other factions. Seemingly having forgotten the calamity of times past, a full-scale war broke out between the factions. Once again, the human race was suffering destruction at the hands of one another.
In the midst of the raging conflict, whispers and rumours of an unknown threat began to surface, an approaching darkness from the outer reaches of the star system. Just three days ago, our greatest fear was confirmed — we are not alone! A powerful alien race of Centaurian origin has emerged, determined to eradicate the human disease from their home star system.
The fate of humankind hangs in the balance! Will we finally manage to put our blood-stained past behind us and unite to face our new common enemy? Or is the urge to rule and conquer too great to spare us from doom? Before long, these questions will all be answered … whether we want it or not!
In Exodus Chronicles you take on the role of one of six human factions, fighting for survival and dominance in an empire-building saga of epic proportions! Choose the primary path of your faction and elect the leader you believe is most capable of guiding your faction towards victory. Along the way, you must make clever decisions at every turn as you explore the sectors surrounding your home planet, expand the reach of your budding empire, exploit newly discovered worlds for their resources, and exterminate enemies that stand in your way.
Exodus Chronicles is a modern reimplementation and streamlined redesign of critically acclaimed Exodus: Proxima Centauri and its two expansions Edge of Extinction and Event Horizon. The game features six asymmetrical factions, each offering multiple choices of starting home worlds and faction leaders.
While the loved and praised game experience remains true to its predecessor, Exodus Chronicles is not merely a reprint of Exodus: Proxima Centauri. Each game mechanism has been thoroughly revisited and redesigned with the purpose of improving, enhancing, and streamlining game play.
