Little Green Men Games has announced their newest title, and it’s another singleplayer space-based RPG. Starpoint Gemini 3 is apparently being billed as a major step up from the previous game in the franchise, Starpoint Gemini Warlords. Players return to the Gemini system, but this time the stakes are on an even grander scale.
Whereas previous games placed you in control of entire star empires, which were built up in a very X3 style, this new game is taking things in a much more personal direction, but one that’s no less impressive and vast. You can still undertake massive military campaigns and titanic industrial efforts in the new game, but there’s also much more depth to both the world and the characters.
The game world is now populated with fully 3D NPCs for one thing, which is a first for the franchise. The universe is getting much bigger too, with the addition of two more systems outside the Gemini.
In terms of gameplay, the focus is being put even more into free roam and organic styles of fun. Control options outside of ship-to-ship combat and exploration are being expanded too. Ship customization is also being massively retooled.
“Starpoint Gemini 3 is something new, and we’re excited to offer you fresh and different experience this time,” developer LGM Games said. “It will be a chance to know and feel our Universe like never before.”
Here are the game’s key features:
- Adrenaline-packed dogfighting combat
- Brand new tri-system universe layout
- Immersive gameplay and an absorbing storyline with a copious quantity of encounter quests, characters and activities
- Detailed visitable interiors
- New out-of-ship drone control and exploration of space structures
- Rich, versatile free-roam content
- Modular ship upgrading system
