Publisher Iceberg Interactive and developer studio Little Green Men Games have announced the release of Titans Return’, an expansion for the RPG space sim Starpoint Gemini Warlords.

The largest expansion for Starpoint Gemini Warlords so far, ‘Titans Return’ features three new Titan ships and an all-new storyline with new conquest mechanics attached. Leading gamers to explore key events from the history of Gemini and deal with their fallout first hand, the expansion’s storyline allows players to discover the mystery behind the Titans and their reappearance. Once, the Titans ruled Gemini, and now they have returned to conquer again.

In addition, the expansion adds a new free-roam scenario, unique ultimate-aura passive abilities for each Titan ship, and a trophy system allowing players to show off acquired Titan vessels. Players can pilot these captured enemy ships in either campaign, or any of the free-roam scenarios.

An amalgamation of space sim, role-playing game, and 4X strategy, Starpoint Gemini Warlords was originally released on May 23, 2017. Garnering positive reception from both players and critics, the game drew comparisons to titles such as Mount & Blade, only with a sci-fi atmosphere. In a review released the first week of August, OnlySP’s Damien Lawardorn described the game as “by turns frustrating, involving, and thrilling, creating an almost addictive quality that ensures players will revisit this vast star system time and again.”

The ‘Titans Return’ expansion is available for PC now on Steam and GOG, with a sale price of $6.99.

Ubisoft Discusses How Uplay Plus Will Improve Communication With Players

Ubisoft Uplay+

Ubisoft believes that its new subscription service Uplay Plus will help the publisher improve communication with players.

Alain Corre, the executive director of EMEA at Ubisoft, spoke to GamesIndustry.biz where he outlined the vision and strategy for the company’s new subscription service. He explained that Uplay Plus will help boost communication with players, and the feedback it receives will help improve Ubisoft’s games.

“The reason behind our subscription service… it gives more possibilities for our fans to play our games and we can talk to them. We can keep them in our worlds, we can discuss with them and—thanks to what they say and the way they behave—we can feed that back into our games development. When we are in control of that within our ecosystem, we feel it’s beneficial for our fans. That’s ultimately what we want to do; we want to have more contact with them, more interaction, listening more to what they want and improve based on what they say.”

Corre highlighted that Ubisoft will not solely focus its efforts on Uplay Plus; players will still be able to pick up any of the publishers games either physically or as digital downloads. He explained that the company’s strategy moving into a subscription service is to adapt with modern consumer tends of gamers.

“We are still keeping the traditional model whether they buy our games in a store or download them. It’s really a case of offering the possibilities. Consumers are evolving really fast, and we want to adapt to what they want and propose new things to them, as well as keep the other means of distribution.”

Furthermore Ubisoft revealed that Uplay Plus and all past and future games will be available on the Google Stadia. Ubisoft was an early vocal supporter of Google’s new console, especially as the upcoming console focuses solely on streaming games.
