Start by generating your world and enjoy numerous customization options to choose from. In Distant Worlds Universe 2, you can begin with either a vast or small galaxy ready to be conquered. Select your civilization's level of advancement and plan even the smallest detail, such as the layout of star systems or habitats of space monsters.
Your main goal is to further and further develop your empire. Take care of the economy and be sure not to run out of crucial resources. Travel to unknown areas of the galaxy and explore them in order to find construction materials and luxurious goods that give unique bonuses to your planets.
Everything you find need to be distributed throughout your entire empire. Your fleet is an independent unit that have to be regulated by laws and edicts. Pick them wisely and be ready to defend it as it is an easy target for your enemies.
While ruling over your powerful empire, you encounter other nations with whom you can establish diplomatic relations. Trade with your neighbors, accept protection treaties with space pirates, and offer diplomatic gifts to independents. Or assimilate everyone by conquest and concentrate your efforts on building military ships, developing powerful weaponry and establishing anti-pirate fighting squads!
In Distant Worlds 2, you can choose whether to command your ships yourself or to give control to the AI. Strategically position your military units, such as escorts, tankers, frigates, and destroyers, and move them around. Destroy weaker enemy's units, defend your fleet, select a formation and retreat when things get tense.
