Starpoint Gemini Warlords Cycle Of Warfare DLC

Posted on 28 Sep 2017

Starpoint Gemini Warlords took the long running space game to new heights, we loved zooming around the big black in our giant space ships, exploding and being exploded by everything in sight because we kept going to the loo when travelling long distances and crashing into stuff. Don’t look at us like that, we get car sick. If you’re not sick of blowing stuff up in space, Starpoint Gemini Warlords is getting a new DLC titled Cycle Of Warfare on 5 October 2017.

Apparently featuring 100-plus hours of new content, Cycles Of Warfare will include the ability to start as one of three established factions; the Iolian Pact, Korkyra, and Outerlands. Two new challenge scenarios; playing as the A’Shiari (hint, they’re the bad guy aliens) and life as a privateer. These challenge scenarios will modify the game away from conquest to focus on risk taking gameplay, and yes, you’ll be able to play as the alien ships in their scenario. See the press release below for more info.

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 of 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.

Key features:

  • 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)
