The chaps over at Paradox Interactive have been announcing loads of games recently, and one of the standout titles is the sequel to lesser-known 4X game, Sword Of The Stars. The new game sounds like something of a remake, as it'll include the races from the original game and its numerous expansions. This should excite quite a few space-fanatics, as the original game was a…
