It was nearly two years ago that we first heard rumors about Starpoint Gemini Warlords, and over a year ago that this real-time-tactical/4x game first appeared on Steam Early Access.

Warlords is an ambitious project, made all the more daring because Little Green Men Games (LGMG) have been very open to ideas and criticism from their fan base, and have incorporated many gamer’s ideas into the game throughout its development. As well as integrating the Steam Workshop, and even adding a new mode for people who want something a bit more ‘Arcady’.

LGMG’s latest update to Warlords, comes with a range of new features, overhauls and bug fixes, but it also comes with a promises: Warlords will reach release state on the 23rd of May. As usual, the full update list for Warlords, is not short. So please enjoy the video above, and read the attached press release for a complete list of everything added.
