Publisher Iceberg Interactive and developer LGM Games are proud to announce new content for their acclaimed space sim Starpoint Gemini Warlords, titled ‘Cycle of Warfare’. Cycle of Warfare is the biggest content expansion ever developed by the studio and will be available on October 5th 2017 through Steam and other major digital retailers, with an SRP of $9.99.
The Cycle of Warfare DLC brings several features that dramatically expand the game with over 100 hours of additional conquest and scenario gameplay. In this new expansion, players will be able to start their conquest over the Gemini system as one of three established factions, each with their own rivals and advantages: Iolian Pact, Korkyra, and Outerlands.
In addition, two new challenge scenarios are included. Play as the A’shriari, the unforgiving alien race bent on humanity’s extinction, or choose the life of an ambitious privateer and lead your clan to wealth and glory. Both challenges modify the game’s rules in different ways, moving away from empire management towards riskier gameplay.
The A’shriari are convinced that the only way to complete victory is a brutal scorched-earth military strategy. In the A’shriari scenario players will be able to:
- Fly and command capital ships of an exclusive new alien ship line, from gunships to carriers;
- Vanquish all human life from the Gemini system by shutting down all the infrastructure;
- Fire a massive weapon directly from their mothership, burning planets and vaporizing all means of sustaining life.
These conquest scenarios can be easily modified in-game to allow the players to customize their own starting advantage as they see fit.
Owners of the base game will also discover new content such as encounters with rare enemy alien ships that will drop epic equipment.
- Five new playable factions: Iolian Pact, Korkyra, Outerlands, A’shriari, and privateers
- Three new conquest scenarios
- Two new challenge scenarios
- New ship line, a new weapon and new ability (as the A’shriari)
