Aurora Wiki

This is the rules and how-to wikipedia for the Aurora 4x game. It currently consists of 1,428 wiki pages. Please note this wiki page is created by Aurora players, rather than by the Aurora designer. Some of the information in this wiki might already be outdated, because the game is constantly being refined and expanded. The most up to date information can be found in the Aurora forums. Nevertheless, this wiki should get you started.

About Aurora

Aurora is a 4X (eXpand, eXplore, eXploit, and eXterminate) science fiction strategy game. Players develop their interstellar empire from the humble beginnings on their homeworld to conquer the universe, or be pummelled into the ashes of history by opposing races.

Some say it has the graphical charm of an income tax assistant software from the late nineties, but a playing depth that more than rivals any commercial 4X game. Aurora is different because it places emphasis on fleet operations and detailed tactical combat.

The game is under constant development and there is an active and friendly player community in the forum that will help you with any question or problem you might encounter.
