In the Sword of the Stars Ultimate Collection, take control of six different species in a fight for galactic domination. Human and alien races such as Hiver, Liir, Tarkas, Zuul and Morrigi each possess unique modes of transport, enabling you to move between star systems at varying speeds and in different spaceships.
For example, humans can fly quickly between stars using special space lines while the hivers rely on building interdimensional gateways for direct travel to different galaxies.
Design and build spaceships from three different classes; Destroyer, Cruiser and Dreadnought. By mixing and matching a wide variety of technologies, you will customise your fleets, arming them with a choice of over 40 different weapons, including point-defence cannons, cloaking devices and missile launchers.
SWORD OF THE STARS
It is the year 2405 and human scientists discover a new technological system called the Node Drive that allows space travel faster than light speed. However, the Hivers choose this moment to attack Earth, killing 70% of the population. A military organisation called Sol Force is established, allowing you to develop infrastructure, build new ships and colonise other planets to ensure the survival of the human race.
SWORD OF THE STARS: BORN OF BLOOD expansion
Set 40 years after Sword of the Stars in 2445, the violent wars between the Humans, Hivers, Liirs and Tarkas have subsided and diplomacy is dawning. However, the Zuuls, a species of marsupial-like creatures, emerge and shatter the peace. Take command of the Zuul army, utilising over 90 new ship sections and 15 new weapons to obliterate enemies. Alternatively, unite with other races against the Zuuls, using the new ship upgrades War, Projector and Boarding and a new type of defence satellite, the Torpedo Defence Platform.
SWORD OF THE STARS: A MURDER OF CROWS expansion
While the battles against the Zuul continue, a ghost from the past returns in the form of the scheming Morrigi. A host of new features is available, with 12 new ship sections and a unique Grav Flock Drive system so that the more ships are added to a fleet, the greater the increase in speed. New gameplay options include the addition of espionage operations and demands for planetary surrender.
