Ever wanted to zip around the galaxy with the all of the daring agility of Battlestar Galactica’s Cpt. Starbuck? Ever wanted to run dangerous trade routes not unlike those Han Solo of Star Wars might have run? Fractal Softworks’ Starsector might just be the game for you!

     This top-down game will have you on the edge of your seat with fast-paced combat and large-scale diplomacy alike. There’s no shortage of massive star systems to explore and you’ll likely be putting a few more hours into this game than you’re willing to admit.

     It’s no easy task to find a gamer who doesn’t enjoy a unique open world in today’s market and that’s just what Starsector delivers. Between an intricate galactic economy and the several factions that carve up the galaxy, you really can’t go wrong in terms of interesting and worthwhile gameplay.

Personalization is a key component of the game with more ships and weapons available with each patch. This pushes some very important (and very unique) characteristics to the surface. What you do and how you do it matters in the world of Starsector. Action can occasionally lead to the destabilization of a market or a faction’s planet changing hands. Your individual play-style can also serve you in combat with more difficult and abstract ship builds generally reaping more valuable rewards.

Whether you dream of being a swashbuckling pirate or the life of an honest trader. The Starsector galaxy is definitely for you!
