Key features

  • Lead special agents of a space corporation: each agent has a dedicated leveling system, and a skill tree that allows for a deep customization of your crew. No fixed classes, and skills can be re-allocated as often as you wish. Hire more agents while leveling corporation: up to 20 crew members to play with, allowing for simultaneous and coordinated activities, both on stations and in space.
  • Build ships and sail through the space: Corporations will build fleets of vessels that Agents can pilot in space. Every ship is unique: fill the ship hull with components and create custom outfits.
  • Lead fleets in cinematic space fights: engage in 3D, RTS-like combat action against your corporation's enemies. Send ships in an enemy sector, and they will fight at their best even when the player is offline, using custom AI settings.
  • Play everywhere: wherever you are, you will be able to play Gates of Horizon on every platform available. The game works the same way on every system, and the same persistent universe will be always there when switching from your desktop PC to your tablet. You can now play on Windows, Mac OS, Linux and Android, and soon a iOS version will be available.

Gates of Horizon is a Real Time 4X Space MMO

Lead your fleet in a universe that react to your actions and changes accordingly, improving and managing your crew and your assets, taking control of entire sectors with your corporation and figthing the dreaded alien menace that still threatens the human race.
Will you be ready?

What to expect

No subscriptions, no hidden costs: buy the game once, play forever, on all available platforms. Period.
No "pay to win": should we ever decide to have microtransactions in the game, it will be for vanity items only, with absolutely no advantage in game: maybe a fancy paint for a ship, or a unique agent portrait, but no more than that.
We listen: we made this game so that players can have fun. When it'll be the time to add something new, we'll ask our players first.

Soon on Steam

We've been greenlit! Every player will have a Steam key as soon as we will hit the store.

So is this like a small-scale 4x game or is it more like EVE Online? The way it seems to be described, it's not real clear.

Thanks for your feedback, I'll update the game description.

We got inspired by great games like Homeworld and Elite, and we are trying to bring together in an online universe RTS elements from the former with the great experience of the latter.

GoH has some similarities with EVE, but there are a lot of unique features. For example you can control multiple ships at the same time and you can give offline orders. Well, it's also multiplatform.

Join us in the next gaming sessions :)

You're right, the dynamic universe will have a very important role. Though there will be a lot to explore :)
