With all the alliances, enemies and lovers we will meet in Mass Effect Andromeda in mind, we bring you 10 games that are all about interspecies collaborations in outer space! One rule though, we are leaving Star Wars and Star Trek out of this video. Now let’s go to infinity and beyond!
Mass Effect series
Let’s start with the obvious. Mass Effect obviously has a place on this list. You get to fight with a team made up of different species including the awesome Krogan. You have alliances with many others. And some of those alliances can even blossom into relationships.
The Long Journey Home
When mankind’s first jump drive goes wrong, a misfit crew is trapped on the wrong side of the universe. Now it’s your job to get back home to Earth together with your hand picked crew. Along the way you will form alliances with strange aliens and make choices that don’t always make your journey easier.
Starcraft 2 Trilogy
There is a game that’s all about space romances and that game is called Starcraft. Jim Raynor and Sarah Kerrigan still love each other, even though Kerrigan is now the Queen of Blades and wants to destroy all life in the universe. The love between Raynor and Kerrigan is the focal point of the entire story of the Starcraft 2 trilogy.
No Man’s Sky
Even though you can’t meet other gamers in the universe, you can meet alien races in No Man’s Sky. Look for Knowledge Stones to learn new words. This way you can improve your standing with the local aliens. In the end it’s not about building meaningful relationships, but about building business relationships.
In Rebel Galaxy you are basically a space cowboy who is trying to make in living in the new frontier. As the commander of a huge spaceship you battle pirates, explore the universe and befriend aliens. This would allow you to do missions for those aliens and get rewards in return to improve your ship.
FTL: Faster Than Light
In FTL: Faster Than Light you need to take a ship to the Federation headquarters, which is several space sectors away. You do this with your team that can consist of eight different races. There’s no romance here, but your team needs to work together to survive and make it to the headquarters.
There probably is no other game out there that can compare with Stellaris. This is the deepest space strategy game out there. It’s your job to form a galactic empire. You can do so by colonizing remote planets and integrating other alien civilizations. This can be done by war or diplomacy and everything in between.
Galactic Civilizations 3
Galactic Civilizations 3 is another one of those Grand Strategy games. Even though you can see every alien species as an enemy, you don’t have to. You can choose for diplomacy and build relationships to take down common enemies together. Such a political alliance is convenient of course.
Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion
With Sins of a Solar Empire we touch upon one of the older Grand Strategy games out there. Also in this game there’s a battle for galactic supremacy going on between several factions. In the latest stand-alone Rebellion expansion these factions even break up into Loyalists and Rebels.
Endless Space 2
We end this list with one final Grand Strategy game, Endless Space 2. This game is currently in Early Access. In this strategy game you control one of the races in their quest for power over the galaxy. You need to explore, expand and exterminate your enemy. Endless Space 2 has eight playable civilizations, each with their own pros and cons.
