Last week Kerberos Productions and Paradox Interactive announced Sword of the Stars 2. This will be the sequel to the Kerbero’s franchise 4x game title Sword of the Stars (SotS).
Without revealing much about the sequel they said that the game will bring back the original six races and introduce a new race: the Suul’ka which is an ancient race in the SotS universe that will be central to the title main story plot.
The developer and the publisher were already teamed up on the first SotS game, but not since the beginning where the former publisher was Lightouse Interactice.
They explain that SotS 2 is still in the early conception phase and promise that it will not be only an evolution of the original SotS gameplay and story with better graphics and that instead players should look forward “to a whole new game that is based on the central SotS experience, but willing and able to grow beyond it to offer even more in terms of strategy, tactics and gameplay.” Martin Cirulis, CEO Kerberos Productions.
Sword of the Stars 2 is in early production and is scheduled to be released in Q1 2011.
