Bulwark Studios (Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus) have just shown off the first gameplay trailer for IXION, a game set in the far future that blends together city building, survival elements and exploration with what they claim is a thrilling space opera.

I got excited by this when covering it initially last year, now we finally get a quick look at it. I have to say, it does look pretty fantastic. Can't wait to see more from it.

"Following the Tiqqun’s completion of a time-skipping VOHLE jump and as Administrator for DOLOS AEC (Aerospace Engineering Corporation), the trailer showcases hull restoration, power and resource management, narrative events, station infrastructure and perilous space exploration as critical components of the assignment at hand."

Check out the trailer below:

We contacted the developer today, who gave a very clear confirmation that it will support Linux.

You can follow IXION on Steam.

I have it on the wishlist from the initial coverage, it certainly looks pretty!
Whoa. Definitely an impressive look. Hard to tell for sure, but hints at being the kind of gameplay I like, too.

Looks good. I'm guessing it'll come in around 80% city builder and 20% exploration but the exploration parts they show in the video do look interesting (I'd prefer more of that). I'm also impressed they show real gameplay footage in the trailer.

Not normally my kind of game, but that trailer promised a hell of an atmosphere! Wishlisting for now, definitely.

Pretty cool trailer. I hope they'll make GOG release too.

This also reminds me to check how Everspace 2 progress is going.

Looks very much like Helium Rain (even in the world map). I'll keep an eye on it :)

Not sold on that, I feel it may be akin to say that Baldur's Gate and Warcraft being both fantasy are the same. Tho I'm very interested.

Tho this VOHLE thing may sadly hint at being rather soft-ish on the sci-fi side, but it'd be interesting to see where it goes. But the game does look appealing nonetheless.
This looks very cool! It'll be going on my wishlist!
