Trese Brothers, the folks behind Star Traders RPG, are back with a new iOS title set in the “Star Traders” universe. The new game, called Star Traders 4X Empires, has been submitted to the App Store and should be available to download soon.

Though we’re not sure exactly when Star Traders 4X Empires is expected to launch on iOS, information concerning the title was shared recently in a TouchArcade forum post. Besides noting that the application has been submitted for review with Apple, one forum member also shares the description for the Android version of Star Traders 4X Empires, which reads:

The Star Traders universe expands to epic new proportions in Star Traders 4X Empires in Exile. Take control of humanity’s last survivors and rebuild a galaxy-spanning empire in this deeply immersive turn-based strategy game. Take control of your destiny — and the universe — in the most engaging space opera ever seen.

The developer continues: “Take control through the strategic use of spies, economics, politics, technology, and advanced weaponry in the most engaging, expansive, and intense turn-based sci-fi title that your phone or tablet has ever seen. Rebuild the human civilization from the ashes of interstellar war to become the galaxy’s ultimate leader in Star Trader 4X Tactics: Empire in Exile.”

If you’re a fan of Star Traders RPG, this new game is a title you won’t want to miss.

Here’s a list of features available in the Android version of Star Traders 4X Empires. We’re expecting to see most (if not all) of them reproduced in the iOS version of the game:
