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.
