Starpoint Gemini Warlords Has Been Released

It feels like it’s been a long journey, but from announcement to release, Starpoint Gemini Warlords completed its journey in less than two years!

On the other hand, Warlords is part of a longer journey, one that began in 1999 when Interplay Entertainment launched Starfleet Command (SFC), which was a new kind of game, one that integrated ship management with wide ranging tactics and real-time starship combat. Interplay opened up a whole new genre with a dedicated fan base. However, after releasing their (decidedly dumbed down) Starfleet Command 3 in 2002, Interplay ditched the series, and gamer’s didn’t see anything like it again until 2010, when Little Green Men Games (LGMG) released Starpoint Gemini.

Warlords is the third incarnation of the Starpoint Gemini series, and Little Green Men Games have been listening closely to its fan base all throughout development, evolving Warlords into something hardly recognizable with its tactical RTS origins. Now if I was to describe Warlords, I’d have to throw in terms like 4X, and fleet management, and even space politics too. Warlords has grown beyond its humble shoot-first, beam-a-bomb-onto-the-enemy-bridge-second beginnings. LGMG have added possibilities for trading, political interventions, discoveries and empire building, and with the integration of Steam Workshop, they intend to keep your universe filled with new and unique discoveries for the foreseeable future.

Starpoint Gemini Warlords is available for £26.99 (or your regional equivalent), with a digital deluxe version also available for £30.38 (or £4.99 to upgrade). A large selection of digital extras, and no inherent in-game advantages, this is a deluxe version that I strongly approve of.

With Starpoint Gemini Warlords, Little Green Men Games introduces 4X Strategy elements to the Starpoint Gemini franchise. “4X Strategy was the last frontier left to explore.” says Mario Mihokovic, CEO of Little Green Men Games. “Starpoint Gemini and Starpoint Gemini 2 already blurred the lines between Space Sim and RPG and with Warlords we went one step further and added 4X Strategy elements to complement the mix. We’ve implemented a lot of features requested by the Starpoint Gemini 2 community into Warlords and we went above and beyond to deliver a diverse and daring game for the existing community, and for newcomers to the Starpoint Gemini franchise alike.

Starpoint Gemini Warlords is a unique blend of space sim, RPG and 4X strategy games and incorporates the best features of each genre. Command your starship, send your war fleets into enemy territory, level up, gain skills, engage in branching dialogues, lead your heroic companions into battle, build up your stronghold, trade, mine, salvage and remind your enemies of why they fear you. Strategy from the front lines!
