“We’re thrilled to deliver a fully-realized version of Star Traders: Frontiers to our Steam players,” says Andrew Trese, co-founder of Trese Brothers Games. “The past few months have been crazy exciting and busy – from daily bug fixing to adding heaps of new features and content. We wouldn’t be here without the community, which has been absolutely amazing.”

“With Star Traders: Frontiers, we’ve returned to one of our favorite settings and put the player in command of a ship and crew. The story weaves together the relationships between captain and crew – and the adventures they embark on together. Each choice the player makes within the story dramatically impacts the universe and the lives of those who populate it,” adds Cory Trese, co-founder of Trese Brothers Games. “We set out to demonstrate exactly how Early Access should be done. We did it the Trese Brothers way – hammering out 87 updates, including huge new features and swathes of content, all without ever invalidating a saved game or pausing more than a few days between big updates. Throughout all this, we’ve also responded to every player thread on Steam. Yes, that might mean we’re crazy – but interacting with our community is extremely important to us.”

Customize your ship​ ​with​ ​more​ ​than​ ​300​ ​upgrades.​ ​Journey​ ​across​ ​an​ ​endless​ ​procedurally-generated​ ​galaxy with a detailed simulation of political, economic, and personal vendettas. Every single crew and officer is a full character with personality traits, history, job, and talents: Watch them grow, manage and promote them, celebrate their victories – and perhaps even mourn their deaths.

From the Ashes of War …
During the Exodus the survivors of a great war piled into their hive ships and left the Galactic Core behind in search of a new home in the stars. Scattered worlds were claimed on the fringe of the galaxy. Each pocket of survivors held on to an isolated set of worlds while trying to rebuild under the great law of Shalun. Three centuries later, technology has brought them back together again. Discovery of the hyperwarp gates bridged what was once an unimaginable distance between far-flung colonies, long-lost families, and political factions.  

With that reunification has come great economic prosperity. The hyperwarp reestablished the transportation of cargo, goods, and technologies between the quadrants – but it has also brought great strife. Political rivalries have been rekindled, blood has been shed in age-old feuds, and the fires of war have been stoked. Amidst the political infighting, a ruthless revolution is rising – and the fervent explorers of the hyperwarp have awoken something that was better left asleep …

Key Features

  • Explore a rich, open universe: Discover endless procedurally-generated galactic maps, meet unique characters, and take on enemies to conquer the galaxy!
  • Become an intergalactic captain: Take on the role of a spy, smuggler, explorer, pirate, merchant, bounty hunter, and more (26 jobs total)!
  • Customize your own spaceship: Choose from more than 300 upgrades and build your very own vessel to venture across the vast reaches of space.
  • Assemble and tailor a loyal crew: Assign talents and equip specialized gear for every spaceship crew member.
  • Experience an ever-changing narrative: Decide to make friends or foes with other factions and influence political, economic, and personal vendettas.
  • Shape the crew based on player choices: As you make decisions and set the tone for your ship, your crew will grow and change to match. Destroy enemy ships with all hands on deck and your crew will become more bloodthirsty and savage. Explore distant worlds and loot dangerous wastelands and your crew will become intrepid and clever – or battle-scarred and half-mad.

Take Command & Venture into the Unknown in Star Traders: Frontiers

Now available on Steam Early Access

 

BOSTON – Nov. 14, 2017 – Star Traders: Frontiers has landed on Steam Early Access! Developed by fan favorite Trese Brothers Games, the latest installment in the Star Traders series boasts deep strategic choices, a branching storyline and polished visuals in a stunningly detailed procedurally-generated galaxy.

First there was the Exodus – when survivors of a great war piled into their hive ships and left the Galactic Core behind in search of a new home in the stars. Scattered worlds were claimed on the fringe of the galaxy. Each pocket of survivors held on to an isolated set of worlds while trying to rebuild under the great law of Shalun. Three centuries later, technology has brought them back together again. The discovery of the hyperwarp has bridged what was once an unimaginable distance between far-flung colonies, long-lost families, and political factions.  

With that reunification has come great economic prosperity: The hyperwarp reestablished the transportation of cargo, goods, and technologies between the quadrants. But it has also brought great strife: Political rivalries have been rekindled, blood has been shed in age-old feuds, and the fires of war have been stoked. Amidst the political infighting, a ruthless revolution is rising – and the fervent explorers of the hyperwarp have awoken something that was better left asleep.

Customize your ship with more than 300 upgrades. Journey across a nearly endless galaxy with an in-depth simulation of political, economic, and personal vendettas. Every single crew and officer is a full character with personality traits, history, job, and talents: Watch them grow, manage/promote them, celebrate their victories … and perhaps even mourn their deaths.

Will you fly as a pirate terrorizing the shipping lanes, join the solar wars as a military captain, or track targets as a fearsome bounty hunter?

“With Star Traders: Frontiers, we’re trying to translate the epic feel of the ‘space operas’ we all know and love to a solid, thrilling role-playing game,” says Andrew Trese, co-founder of Trese Brothers Games. “Filling a game with lore and player agency is easier said than done, but I think what we have so far is quite special.”

“We’re counting on the Trese Brothers community to help us take Star Traders: Frontiers to the next level,” adds Cory Trese, co-founder of Trese Brother Games. “That’s the beauty of Steam Early Access: Not only can players enjoy the game way ahead of schedule, but they can also work closely with us to make it even better. We’ve seen what was possible with Templar Battleforce. We know in our hearts that this is the way to go, and we can’t wait to hear what our fans think of the game!”
