Master of Orion II is the follow-up to Master of Orion and added many new features over the previous game. Although the overarching concept of the game is inherited from its predecessor, many concepts were also inherited from its fantasy counterpart, Master of Magic. Particularly notable additions include customization of the player's advantages and disadvantages, and multiplayer mode.
