Starsector version 0.7a is now out! We’ve also got a shiny trailer for you to watch while the new version is downloading.

 

New features in this version:

  • Expanded battles – come to the aid of beleaguered allies, or be swarmed by enemies
  • Campaign terrain – nebulas, stellar coronas, hyperspace storms, and more
  • Sensors – play cat and mouse games with enemy fleets or patrols seeking to ruin your smuggling run
  • Abilities – “go dark” to hide in a ring system, or use “emergency burn” to chase down a pirate
  • Combat officers – hire and level up officers to power up the ships you assign them to
  • Campaign missions to take on for profit
  • Faction and reputation-specific music
  • Six new star systems, five new ships, and three new weapons
