I've heard of a few different methods of multiplayer, but does anybody know if there will be LAN? I'm wondering if MP can be played without relying on a server.
Stardock's F.A.Q. says: "Yes, there is online and hotseat multiplayer. Stay tuned for details, but we can at least confirm that some form of asynchronous play will be included so you don't have to get your friends to commit to playing for several hours in one sitting to complete a game." and that's the most complete answer I have read from them at the moment. That said, internet is big and I only know my little corner so if there are mentions to LAN, I haven't read them (or totally missed them in which case I apologize and give me the link, please?).
