Colonies Online is a game world consisting of a great number of planets each with an area of thousands square kilometers. Game objective is to gain a foothold in the developed areas, either making headway single-handedly or creating enclaves with other players. Players united in an enclave can build colonies. Colony is a place where researches are conducted, equipment and resources are stored. Therefore, it is likely to become subject to intense interest of competitors. Overtaking a colony is a great opportunity to weaken the enemy as well as loot trophies.
