Polaris Sector: Lumens is out!

The war for the Polaris Sector is back in style with a huge, new expansion: Lumens!

Lumens adds a brand new race to the game, the Lumens, living beings entirely made of light and pure energy who will stop at nothing to obtain total galactic domination.

Polaris Sector: Lumens also introduces many improvements to the base game, including a total rework of the technology system, new galaxy generation options, a brand new fleet management system, and much more.

It is a must-buy for every Polaris Sector fan and if you have never tried it there’s no better occasion than now. Take part in the brutal wars to control the Polaris Sector in what is one of the most challenging and war-oriented space 4X games ever made!

If you’d like to take a look at it, don’t miss today’s stream on our Twitch channel: Agrippa Maxentius will be commanding his mighty fleets at 4 pm GMT!

About This Game

The ancients who named this sector ‘Polaris’ sure had a unique sense of humor. Polaris - the bright star, the star of hope and faith. Well the Polaris sector has precious little of either; just a wilderness of gas, stars, and supernovas soaked in treachery, oppression, and the lust for power.


Can anyone build an empire in a place like this? Other factions are naturally suspicious of newcomers and may wage war at the first sign of unidentified craft. Here, a natural death is an uncommon luxury. You look weak? Pirates and scavengers will plunder your planets. You show military strength to discourage potential enemies? Your rivals will combine their forces to eliminate the threat.


Total domination requires many diverse stratagems. Shaking the hand of a powerful emperor, designing new warships in secret, investing everything in fundamental sciences to gain technology before your competitors - all may be the road to success. But will you have the time to implement your strategy? Will you be visionary enough to build weapons and technologies that will make the difference in battles fought decades from now? Find the right balance between fundamental and applied sciences to stay ahead of the opposition. Find the right balance between classic designs and crazy prototypes and your ships will be feared across the galaxy. Your engineers and scientists provide you a high level of flexibility, but it’s your decisions that will shape the empire’s fate.


Many a mercenary or adventurer has come here seeking wealth and power, and all their stories are now just whispers in the void. Polaris is a black hole for living species, and empires rise and fall in the blink of an eye. Maybe the leader that will bring stability to this zone hasn’t been born yet, if they will ever exist…


And on the pedestal these words appear:
'My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

- Shelley
