"Starpoint Gemini Warlords", in Early Access, receives its first update!

Successor to the Starpoint Gemini franchise, Starpoint Gemini Warlords entered Steam Early Access a week ago and it's high time to start dishing out updates at a regular pace. The first one brings many bug fixes (a big thanks goes out to the community for sending in your game logs which made it massively easier to hunt them buggers down and squash them), but also some new content as well.

Starpoint Gemini Warlords now available



We're proud to announce that Warlords is now available in the Early Access program.

Warlords began as a result of the thousands and thousands of posts members of the community made during the Early Access of Staroint Gemini 2, and it is only appropriate we continue in this tradition. We're eager to see what You think of the game in its current state, what you think of our plans for it and to contribute to the discussions on the Steam board.

You'll notice we've reorganized the discussion board a bit, but the key addition is the Early Access Sitrep. We hope this will explain everything you wanted to know about Warlords. If not, please don't hesitate to ask. We'll be happy to answer.

Two new trailers are also ready for your capable review. You can find them on the store page.

Welcome back to Gemini, warlords!

About This Game

Captain your own space ship and roam the galaxy in 3D in this tactical space simulator with tons of RPG depth ! Space has never looked so inviting - but images can betray...






It has been two years since the end of the second Gemini war, the situation in the wartorn system is further from resolution than ever.
The collection of freedom fighters named Gemini League is now reduced to a small group, with no power or influence, after losing their leaders. The Empire meanwhile, has used the re-opened Starpoint to occupy the once renegade Gemini sector - and beyond.



A multitude of Imperial warship fleets and mammoth motherships have crushed every trace of opposition. The situation was looking bleak, when they suddenly halted their armada and re-shifted their focus on fortifying Starpoint with staggering numbers. Rumours soon spread that they were afraid of something coming after them through the T-gate, from what was supposed to be the core of the Empire. What are they running from that makes even the mighty Empire tremble?



Starpoint Gemini 2 will take players on a breath taking journey, with dark secrets and unimaginable twists that will finally unveil the incredible truth...

Key features:

  • Complex, but easy-to-use RPG system, now coupled with dynamic real-time 3D combat.
  • Explore the dynamic game world as a whole, rather than through individual maps.
  • Use T-Gates, wormholes and riftways to travel faster around the Gemini system .
  • Fifty diverse factions ranging from states and companies to outlaws, locked in a powerstruggle, with over 100 commodities to trade or plunder.
  • Special revocable licenses acquired from factions offer various bonuses and unlock new options.
  • Hire mercenary captains to follow you on your travels and share your fate, and employ officers to fill key positions on your ship (engineering, navigation, tactical).
  • Random missions get generated depending on the player’s actions and allegiances.
  • Over 70 unique ships, fully upgradeable with various ship systems, with a.o. visible turrets, and a large arsenal of destructive weapons to blast enemies to pieces.
  • Direct ship controls create complete immersion.
  • Advanced physics provided by NVIDIA PhysX technology

Had to write a review because I looked and saw that this game was getting really negative reviews. I think that most of these come from skewed expectations.

The game, is fantastic, but not for everyone. If you are expecting an Eve style game: turn around and walk away. If you are expecting an Elite: Dangerous style of game: turn around and walk the other way. If you are expecting a Freelancer style game: then come right on in and enjoy the ride. I'm a pretty big space junkie, even bleeding into the mobile area *gag reflex*, I know. But when I'm not playing some space game on my PC, I'm playing Galaxy on Fire on my phone. As far as the game goes don't expect much "dogfight" type flying and combat. While there is a small amount of that in the early game, very quickly it turns into a game with battleships and cruisers, where the tactic is to broadside your adversary rather than run at him head on. Being that it is in space, that type of combat is amplified tenfold. Think of a great conflict with you in your dreadnought vs 3 other battleships. You launch fighters and prepare for combat. Being that this is space one of the battleships flys above you, so you rotate your ship so that your port side is now facing the underside of his ship, leaving you with a perfect angle of attack. If that doesn't sound awesome to you than this game is now for you.

So here's the kind of stuff that happens in SG2:

I'm flying in my cloaked Freya-class stealth carrier towards a small fleet of enemy vessels. I drop to cruising speed (drawing power from engines to weapons + shields) in the middle of the ship cluster and release 1 wing each of fighters + bombers, which wreak havoc in their ranks. I lock a grappling beam on the flagship, drop out of cloak and set weapons free. Turning the ship, I shoot missile salvos from my port, bow and starboard ports, crushing the flaship's shields and bringing hull integrity to critical levels. I then use transporters to launch a boarding party, which subdues the vessel's defenders in less than a minute. All the while my guns, bombers and fighters make short work of the supporting vessels and I leave with a prize ship worth millions of credits.

That's the game in a nutshell. It's really, really, really cool and accomplishes what few games like it can... but has giant glaring holes in it. I recommend the game if you get it on sale or if you don't mind taking the good with the bad. I'm not one of those weird people who likes s***ty games and *I* played it for 55 hours and counting.

Here are my gripes:
* Capturing ships? Yeah, pretty much the only sensible thing to do towards the end game for cash.

* The system is kind of arcane. Most of it becomes intuitive after you get a chance to tweak it (for instance, I've set my mouse page Back/Forward buttons to lock on the nearest target and mark it for fighters/fleet vessels). However... it wasn't until like 40-50 hours into the game that I realized that "Power-To-Engines" didn't actually put full power to engines and you boosted speed significantly if you used the power allocation tab to set Engines to 100% while in PTE mode.

* AI is miserably weak. Boarding actions? They don't do 'em. Hacking your ship? Yeah they don't do that either. Grappling? Hahaha no. They seem to just go towards the nearest enemy and shoot. The most complicated thing they do is use items that drop mines or kill your fighters or knock out your engines. It leads to ridiculous situations like my Freya ship with 110 troopers destroying 6 Equinox-class carriers with 130 troopers each... when just two of them could almost guarantee taking my ship by boarding. Same goes when I'm wrecking a freighter with a small corvette-class fighter/bomber... and it could easily knock me out of commission by grappling me and pounding me to dust.

* The dialogue killed my parents. Seriously... this stuff comes across as written by a middle-schooler, translated to Russian-and-back, and voiced in the dumbest, least engaging way possible. Worst of all.. it's unskippable! There's a command for "skip dialogue" but it DOESN'T WORK.

I picked this game up during a bundle but I wouldn't recommend it at any price point. Aweful voice acting, boring gameplay, and a seemingly nonsensical map structure are among the valid criticisms left by other negative reviews of this game.

I don't typically take time out of my day to publically trash on a game but there are quite simply much better options out there for your time and money.

This is coming from a CASUAL GAMER.
This game seems fairly fleshed out but I want a game where I can pick up and play.
This is my experience:
I started the game and said "WTF is going on!" The voice acting is bad and the first thing that happens is they say, "let's do a brief tutorial to defend yourself from pirates" and then she says, "I'm sure I don't have to remind you" and...no tutorial.
I'm playing with an Xbox controller (it's supposed to be supported) but none of the buttons are properly mapped and the control buttons in the options menu are labelled as, "Joystickvertaxis1" and such. When brief little tutorial text blurbs show up LATER, I have no idea what they are talking about regarding what buttons do what. The game doesn't tell you what you need to know and I felt like the learning curve was so daunting, I gave up fairly quickly. Not only for that, but because the combat....You press one button to automatically fire and you just jet in circles until your AI kills everything. Boring as sin. Also I could never figure out how to adjust my speed beyond the afterburner button.
Casual gamers, PASS. I feel like I wasted my $

Pro
- Many ships
- Hard and addictive game play
- Many items
- Good guns variety
- Stealth +++
- PvE is awesome
- The feeling of power
- Drones <3
- Achievements

Cons
- Add more levels (heroes and missions can reach 120 level and the player has no chance)
- The story is not so good (I played 50 H and then I make the story in a carrier :))
- The game crashes randomly (this forced me to save on every station / planet I docked in very frustrating)
- The game sends the user to main menu randomly with no warning
- Playing the game with both "Secrets of Aethera" + "TItans" and perform them = Original -> TItans and then start Secrets will not let you board the station (station was already discovered before the walkthrough) and so the WTB (walkthrough breaker) will occur
- Performing ALT + TAB while in FULL SCREEN or just press on the secondary display by mistake and then return to the game will cause the game to remain in window mode with all game text cut off and almost unreadable (restart required)
- HUD is so 2006
- AI’s missile follow the player in “Power to engine” speed forever but the users have a range

I know I only have a few hours in on this game, but I already love it. It reminds me of the old game Freelancer in all the good ways, with a smattering of Darkstar One thrown in for good measure. It also has many features all its own, but if you liked either of those games, I think you will like this one. I already know that I will be coming back to play this game for long into the future.

TLDR:
If you are looking for a Elite type game look elsewhere!

If you are looking for a casual game where you can capture ships, command a carrier, and be a rich badass. Then this is for you.

At first glance I wasn't impressed by this game. Found the controls/interface a bit clunky, voice acting cheesy to say the least. However as I kept playing it kind of grew on me. Now I'm hooked. Can't wait for what the devs have in store for Warlords. Cheap good fun and many hours of game play.

(8/10)

Pros:
-Freelancer 2.0
-Capitol ships.
-Ability to capture vessels and own them or sell them.
-Ability to lead a small fleet
-Simple control scheme, complex battle needs.
-Runs perfectly smooth for my mid grade computer
-Story line is not overly complex and compels you to keep upgrading your ship/fleet/character in order to survive

Cons:
-Some dlc quests may get bugged if you load all DLC at start of a save. Forums have workarounds to help solve issues though
-Capturing ship to sell profit far out scales all other methods of profit (trade, mining, missions, etc) and after a playthrough of a character/ship tuned for this method, all other methods feel like roleplay, comparatively.


Starpoint Gemini 2 is a game extremely like Microsoft's Freelancer however instead of a choice of around 10* fighter sized ships (in vanilla freelancer), you will be getting a plethora of capitol sized ships from transports, frigates, cruisers, destroyers, and so on up to carrier and dreadnaught. Titan class if you get that dlc too.

Gameplay wise the game features easy controls to help you manage power towards shields, weapon batteries, and thrust, and you will be required to fluctuate this power as the game progesses and the needs of battle and speed get more intense.

I found the ui and gameplay to be very good. This game has been the best open space trader sim that I've played on steam yet.

Late game battles can be intense and even if you power through tens of ships at a time, you will need to be vigilant in your positioning, use of power, and abilites.

I see a lot of negative reviews for this game, and while it may be a bit repetative, I can't find any 3-D space RPGs that are as easy to control and not just pure spaceflight "simulator". The story and voice-overs are what you would expect from a space rpg, however that shouldn't really be the reason you play this game.

In my opinion, I have had loads of fun warping all over the galaxy doing manuevers around large carries and owning pirates and rebels with my plasma cannons and missiles. The amount of customizibility with your ship is off the chart for this game, however once you find your playing style and the best gear for that style you are kind of set.

You can also download other peoples mods and get fan made ships or docking hangers and other cool weapons not found in-game which is pretty sweet that the devs opened it up for modding.

All in all, this is a quality game that I went back and purchased the DLC's for because I thought the price justified the entertainment. If you like space games like the original escape velocity, or games like the app galaxy on fire you will like this game a lot.

Having just played through Rebel Galaxy, maybe I was expecting too much, but couldn't get into this. It lacks cohesive vision, just feels like a bunch of different game systems tacked on, and thrown together, with nothing in particular being well done. It's not terrible, just dull.

Combat is dull, trading is dull, the progression system is dull, weapon and ship variants, factions, characters, various ways of adding percentage bonuses to basic abilities, ship enhancement items, crew members you can hire, but nothing does anything interesting. The story is barely more than a distraction.

The gameworld is just a bunch of planets and stations clumped together in a cubic space, with a binary star painted in the background, like the scenery behind a fishtank. It's a space sim which seems to be created by people who have no interest in basic astronomy whatsoever. Disappointing.

This game was a big surprise for me. I was never much into heavy stuff like Star Citizen with their real physics and hardcore gaming. SPG2 is fun, entertaining, tense, interesting, relaxing, I cannot describe it in a few words. I found this by accident and decided to give it a try. It blew me away. Please, give it a shot. I doubt you'll regret it. Can't wait to see what will they come up with next! 11 out of 10!

Update Jun 2016.
Seeing and playing Warlords, you can tell how deeply these devs care about their players. Warlords is so much bigger and with so many stuff people wanted in SPG2, that I can recommend it over SPG2. But if you're relatively new to the genre, this gem is currently on massive 80% off and it's worth every cent.

Possibly one of the best games I have ever played and it isn't even finished! People litterally write to the devs wanting to pay more just to get more content. The devs unlike most care more about their legacy then making money. This is the perfect freelancer 2 which sadly never happened. You can explore, trade, raid ships, and despite forcing your progression, you can't fly ships you level isn't high enough for. The game battles are balanced, and even when you are flying mega ships, you can quickly find your self getting swarmed by many many smaller vessles.

There has to be a balance between devs and profits. Unlike Payday 2, this game NEEDS to sell updates to keep it going.

Flying around in space, blowing stuff up.
Although there are many games of this type out there Starpoint Gemini 2 manages to hooked me. Frankly I have no idea why. It's just relaxing - flying in your Titan, warping out in hostile a zone and watching as everything around your ship turns into space dust.

9/10 Because destroying asteroids by colliding with them is called creative mining.

I highly, highly recommend this title. Its vast universe will give you many hours of gameplay. Fantastic game, fantastic forums and support. Together with Secrets of Aethera and Titans, this is a huge game. Not to forget full original game port Origins, available as free DLC for all Starpoint Gemini 2 players.

Game is completely moddable so if you want to assume command of Enterprise or some other ship available in mods, you can. ;-)

I am really enjoying Starpoint Gemini 2! Having never played the original, I was a little nervous about buying the sequel, but that isn't a problem at all! Free roam mode gives you a blank canvas and you can do pretty much whatever you want. The option is also available during the campaign, but I always feel compelled to stick with the story rather than go off and do my own thing for a little while. Due to this, I have not spent much time at all on the campaign. Doing random missions, trading, capturing enemy ships, and exploring have all distracted me from that. However, the five minutes or so I have spent on the campaign were not all that impressive (shoddy voice acting, uninteresting writing). So, do I recommend this game? Absolutely, just not for the story. Get this game if you want to get lost in a space sim for hours, not for some kind of an epic drama.
