'Stellar Tactics' Rolls Out Open World Universe Update

by Rainier on Sept. 21, 2018 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT

Stellar Tactics is a Sci-Fi RPG featuring a compelling narrative, deep strategic turn-based combat and rewarding open-world space exploration.

Six years in the making and designed and engineered by industry veteran, Don Wilkins, whose previous credentials include work on Wizardry, Arcanum, Tribes and the Hobbit among others, Stellar Tactics challenges you to assemble your team, equip your ship and explore a vast and dangerous universe.

Stellar Tactics tells the story of a parallel warring species of human beings, genetic mutation, ancient alien civilizations, unprecedented power and hope. You play an elite warrior genetically modified, bred for warfare. You and your team will wake to investigate an occurrence on one of the ships that carry the remnants of your people, suspended in a deep sleep for the long sub-light journey. Your deeds will change the destiny of those you protect, and your actions will reflect in the events that unfold as you reach your destination and you are unleashed into the void.

Stellar Tactics comes with a compelling narrative of finely crafted lore specifically designed to mesh with an open-ended sandbox RPG. Designed to entertain for years to come with episodic content spanning thousands of star systems with story and immersion, the game currently has more than 200,000 solar systems and millions of planets to discover. Spend countless hours exploring, fighting, trading and building a party of seasoned veterans ready for action.

Gather your team and embrace your destiny as you explore the far reaches of deep space. Combining party-based exploration, turn based tactical combat and space exploration, Stellar Tactics gives players the freedom to live in a massive procedural universe on a mission of discovery, exploration and unfettered progression.

“I'm thrilled to announce that the Stellar Tactics Universe will finally open on September 21st," said Maverick Games founder, Don Wilkins. "Many years of hard work and the dedication and patience of players all over the world made this possible. The game is still in Early Access and there is a lot of work left to do, however, this patch is a major milestone and the first iteration of the Universe sandbox.“

  • Level cap raised from level 30 to 60 and skill caps raised to 100 for all active skills
