Master of Orion, the reboot of the epic 4X sci-fi strategy game that was originally published by Microprose way back in 1993, will arrive as an early access release in just over a week, with an impressive cast of voice actors in tow: Luke Skywalker, Mr. Worf, Freddy Krueger, Wash, Q, Howling Mad Murdock, and a wack of others.
Play Master of Orion at the PC Gamer Weekender in London from March 5-6. Click here to find out more.
The trailer is the fun way to see who's taking part, and it also reveals a brand new playable race, but if you just want to get to it (and also if you want the full list of voice actors, rather than a highlight reel), just cast your eyes ever so slightly downward. (I'd recommend watching the trailer anyway, though.)
