It’s spent seven long years out in the wilderness but cult sci-fi strategy Starpoint Gemini is back, this time as an action RPG. Starpoint Gemini 3 has been officially announced, putting players in the cockpit of Jonathan Bold, heading out for an intergalactic adventure of space battles, world exploration, and high-tech gear.

It’s quite the change for the 4X strategy series, full of first-person cockpit space pew-pew rather than pointing and clicking. Players will be free to get outside their spaceships and explore on land, meeting the inhabitants face-to-face rather than through the cold void of text windows.

“As you'll notice, Starpoint Gemini 3 is something new, and we're excited to offer you fresh and different experience this time,” says developer Little Green Men Games. “It will be a chance to "know" and "feel" our Universe like never before.”

Starpoint Gemini 3 is currently pegged for a vague 2019 release date; it’ll be coming exclusively to PC.

Didn't hear about the change to rpg from my local news site. What makes it even more confounding is that it's devs are from Croatia.


So much for Croatian journalism.

I enjoyed Starpoint Gemini 2 and Warlords but they are just average games, average good, but still. I hope this one turns out to be really good. I'm starving for some space adventure games and X4 has potential but right now it's not so good, it's still way better than that Rebirth cr@p, it just needs some updates, patches.
If u guys like dogfighting a lot, try EVERSPACE, not much of a story, no building stations and creating an empire, just good old satisfying dogfighting, it's a rogue-like with top tier graphics, best kb+m controls in ANY space game I've found so far, dogfighting in other games feels underdeveloped after this one.
