In case you have missed it, Smugglers 5: Invasion is available on Steam since 16th October.
The Invasion expansion adds a new alien race with new ships, new skills, new star systems, an improved combat system, improvements to the game graphics including screen resolution and much more. There are significantly more stories to explore in each new system, and full combat carriers with bombers, interceptors, and escort vessels. With hundreds of different skills, many starting professions, and the ability to change the course of the war, Smugglers 5: Invasion is the turn based answer to every star captain's dream.
Smugglers 5: Invasion starts where the original game ended. After years of civil war, the Federation finally emerged victorious, crushing all rebel activity. The galaxy looked forward to a period of peace, a chance to repair the damage of a long and bitter war.
Then came the Jalkath, a new alien race. To the humans, they looked much like the tigers of Old Earth, and they soon proved themselves to be every bit as cunning and dangerous. The newcomers were swift and brutal in their assault, deploying terrifying weapons and subjugating entire systems before their victims even knew what was happening. The Federation has rallied a defense against the invaders, as both sides struggle for dominance.
Now, war has returned to the galaxy. For the right kind of captain, it’s a whole new chance for fame and fortune. Will you fight for the survival of your race? Trade and smuggle goods to make your fortune? Or play both sides against each other for your own profit?
This is a different scenario and does not replace the original Smugglers 5: Secession, which plays in a different timeline.
