Starpoint Gemini 2 Available on Steam Early Access



Video game publisher Iceberg Interactive and developer LGM Games recently announced that Starpoint Gemini 2 is available on Steam’s Early Access. Starpoint Gemini 2 is a space-RPG game that resembles EVE online, and is at its Alpha stage as of this week.

Mario Mihokovic, CEO at LGM Games, had this to say:

“A significant part of Starpoint Gemini 2 was created by taking fan suggestions and improvements for the original game in mind. Now we have a chance to show our players how far we have come in implementing both our ideas and theirs in this much enhanced sequel. The new feedback we will receive through Early Access will be invaluable in finalizing our vision for this new venture in the Gemini system.”

Key Features include:

  • The complex, but easy-to-use RPG system, is now coupled with a dynamic real-time 3D combat
  • Players can explore the dynamic game world as a whole, rather than through individual maps
  • Use T-Gates, wormholes, and rift ways to travel faster around the Gemini system
  • Starpoint Gemini 2 offers 50 diverse factions ranging from states and companies to outlaws, locked in a power struggle, with more than 100 commodities to trade or plunder
  • Special revocable licenses acquired from factions offer various bonuses and unlock new options
  • Gamers can hire mercenary captains to follow them on their travels and share their fate, and employ officers to fill key positions on their ship (engineering, navigation, tactical)
  • Random missions get generated depending on the player’s actions and allegiances
  • More than 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

Developers are looking for feedback on the game so if you’re interested in Starpoint Gemini 2, share your thoughts in the Steam Community Hub. Starpoint Gemini 2 is discounted at an Early Access price of $19.99, which also includes the original full game of Starpoint Gemini.
