Article posted on 2/9/2017

Plymouth, MI. – February 9, 2017 - Stardock and Mohawk Games have released a new DLC for Offworld Trading Company containing over a dozen single-player scenarios. Designed by an avid competitor called Blues, Blue Chip Ventures invites players to test their skill against Offworld’s most difficult challenges.

"Predicting markets, sabotaging your opponents, and breaking monopolies is only the start," said Soren Johnson, lead designer for Offworld Trading Company. "There are also complex "challenges" in the DLC that require you to take what you already know and build on what you’ve learned from the other scenarios in order to beat them."

The scenarios have been designed to focus on specific key game skills and mechanics such as dealing with supply and demand, playing with others in both competitive and cooperative environments, or planning an endgame strategy all the way from start to finish.

"Blues is a top-tier player," said Johnson. “He used inspiration from the Daily Challenges to craft these interesting and strategic scenarios. Blue Chip Ventures is going to make even the most veteran players work hard for their victories.”

Blue Chip Ventures contains scenarios that utilize a few key strategies:

  • Supply & Demand: Focus on monopolizing resources and learn the right times to shift focus to keep ahead of the competition.

  • Play Well with Others: Learn both how to handle opponents and also work with others as a team.

  • Long-term Planning: Deal with debt strategies and turn around a losing game through careful planning.

Offworld Trading Company - Blue Chip Ventures DLC is currently available on Steam and through Stardock for $4.99. For more information about Offworld Trading Company, please visit www.offworldgame.com.
