A new DLC for Polaris Sector!

 

Last year SoftWarWare and Slitherine teamed up to release Polaris Sector, combat-focused sci-fi 4X that combines grand strategy and tactical space battles. 

We’re now happy to announce that an expansion is coming to Polaris Sector: Lumens.

 

The Lumens are a new playable race which will fight for control of the Polaris Sector. They are an evil, warmongering and expansionist race made of pure energy. Lesser races will mistake them for angels of light, but there’s no mistaking what their true intentions are…

Lumens also comes with a whole new set of features: race-unique sciences and technologies, new fleet options, updated and improved planet properties, many new customizable options and much more!

Do you want to help us shape the Lumens expansion? Join the beta by applying here! We’re looking forward to hear your feedback.

 

Today we’re also releasing the 1.06 patch on Open Beta on Steam. Read the changelog here. It’s massive! Some highlights? How about Fleet designer, New configuration options, New fleet management screen and so many quality-of-life improvements! To access the Open Beta, right click on Polaris Sector from your Steam Library, click Properties -> Betas -> and select the Open Beta branch.

 

Lumens is going to be an essential buy for any Polaris Sector fan, and in case you haven’t tried Polaris Sector yet this is your chance: Polaris Sector will be at 50% off discount for one week! Don’t miss this occasion! The discount lasts until Thursday September 14th.

 

Last but not least, don’t miss our live stream on Twitch today. Agrippa Maxentius will be playing Polaris Sector live on our Twitch channel at 5 pm CEST / 4 pm BST and he will lead his space-koala empire and attempt to take over the galaxy. Yes, space koala. Don’t miss it!
