'Sword of the Stars II' Officially Announced

by Rainier on Jan. 27, 2010 @ 8:08 a.m. PST

Sword of the Stars II is a full stand-alone follow-up to the popular space strategy titles. Sword of the Stars II will feature the six races from the original game, as well as its expansions, marking a major step forward in the series’ approach to 4X gameplay.

In Sword of the Stars 2, gamers will be reaquianted with the original six races from Swords of the Stars I and its expansions as well as reveal the dark secret of the original series, the Suul’ka – an ancient race that is responsible for tampering with the Liir, Zuul, and other races in the SotS universe!

Not limited to another entire new race and their unique drive technology, SotS2 will be a major step forward in the SotS approach to 4X gameplay, taking the easy-to-learn-hard-to-master philosophy set out in SotS1 and following that path to a new standard in space strategy games.

”We've always felt there are many parallells between Paradox Interactive and Kerberos. We share a passion for game development, a dedication to a strong community and have earned a great deal of recognizition and creditibility in the strategy gaming community for our work. Sword of the Stars 2 is in its early conception but is already showing potential of becoming Kerberos great masterpiece and we are very excited to play a part in bringing it to gamers worldwide, said Fredrik Wester, CEO Paradox Interactive.

Sword of the Stars 2 represents not only an evolution of the SotS gameplay and story, but also a union between a developer and a publisher who understand gameplay and strategy above all else. To us, Paradox is more than just another publisher, they are fellow gamers who love strategy and action as much as we do. When it comes to the game itself, Sword of the Stars 2 will be far more than just a sequel where the graphics have been tuned up and a new unit or two thrown in. Instead players can 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 for release in 2011.
