Stardock announced the final installment of its 4-part expansion
to Star Control®: Origins™ today. Earth Rising - Part 4: Earth Rises introduces
players to exciting new adventures, including bar fights at Kapteyn's Bar, the
reluctant return of a God, a search for a missing Commander, and more.
Star Control: Origins is set in the late 21st century. The player is the Captain
of Earth's first interstellar starship with the mission to explore the galaxy,
find allies to help protect Earth from hostile aliens, and find the resources
necessary to help Earth expand to the stars.
Earth Rises is the final part in a four-part expansion pack called Earth Rising.
The expansion adds a host of new aliens, ships, adventures and destinations to
the already rich universe introduced in Star Control: Origins. Because Star
Control is a non-linear action/RPG game, the new content does not require the
player to have already completed the main story arc from the base game.
Highlights of Earth Rises include:
- New Missions & Quests - Search for the missing Commander Magara, keep an
eye on the humans developing a deadly Terran Battlecruiser, and stop the
Measured from harvesting a sun and killing an entire civilization.
- New Location - Visit Kapteyn's Bar to hear the latest gossip, triumph in
a bar fight, and pick up bounty hunting quests.
- New Battles - Lead your fleet into epic battles against massive space
- New Weapons - Take on enemies with an arsenal of new weapons like the
Black Hole Array or the Charged Warhead.
