Haarlem, The Netherlands – June 11, 2015 – Iceberg Interactive announced today that space sim/RPG fan-favorite Starpoint Gemini 2 has received a huge content boost with its latest free DLC, Starpoint Gemini 2: Origins, available now on Steam. Having spent a year in Steam’s Early Access program, Starpoint Gemini 2 officially launched last September, with much acclaim from both press and consumers. In the spirit of its much-lauded commitment to its community, developer Little Green Men Games did not want to deprive anyone of the original backstory from predecessor Starpoint Gemini, and with it the roots of the galactic conflict. Since releasing the first DLC ‘Secrets of Aethera,’ the team has been working hard integrating that story into the Starpoint Gemini 2 engine, a challenging task that is now complete.
Starpoint Gemini 2: Origins will feature 30 new storyline missions from the original Starpoint Gemini. The new missions have been tailor-made to fit Starpoint Gemini 2, and will surely bring a smile to the faces of many Starpoint Gemini 2 owners.
Backstory of Starpoint Gemini 2: Origins
The Gemini star system is a former colony of the gigantic Earth Empire. Twenty-three years ago, the rule of the Gemini Colonial Directorate was challenged by the Gemini League: a group of young revolutionaries whose only goal was a unified, but more importantly free and independent Gemini. The League grew quickly and it wasn’t long before the entire system was enflamed by the war for independence which was slowly but surely leading to the defeat of the Directorate. The war ended abruptly, however, with the Starpoint incident which effectively sealed off the entire system from the Empire. The original ideas of the League were quickly lost and, in almost no time, new players emerged on the scene: the Korkyran Triumvirate, the Baeldor Republic and the Nyxian Consortium.
Countless spatial anomalies, a side effect of the incident, ripped many ships from the standard flow of time, only to bring some of them back over during the course of those 23 years. Scientists, however, didn’t just stand still all that time, but they diligently devised a way to find and pull back the stranded “Revenants” to normal space-time. Gamers will become one of these revenants who returned to find their entire world and all they believed in and fought for, changed beyond recognition. Find your way and place in this new Gemini, which has fallen into chaos and disarray, and relight old fires to finish what was started 23 years ago.
Starpoint Gemini 2 is available on Steam for $34.99, which includes both Origins and the previous DLC Secrets of Aethera.
