Warpgate features an impressively large world with over 35 star systems controlled by five antagonistic groups of space folk. Different systems are accessible through warpgates, hence the game's title. With 3 or 4 planets per system, there are plenty of locations to explore and exploit. You pilot a ship from planet to planet, completing available missions as you see fit. There are over 100 quests to keep you plenty busy. Planets have distinct resources for trade, with an extensive market system whose prices fluctuate like the stock market.
