Following its release on Steam, Little Green Men Games just published the massive 2.0 update for Starpoint Gemini Warlords on Xbox One. It's completely free for existing owners. Update 2.0 completely overhauls diplomacy and brings numerous other enhancements to the experience. With this latest patch, whatever you do in the game, Starpoint Gemini Warlords reacts to it, whether you like it or not. Factions will become your allies, and then betray you for their own gain. They may offer help with research and technology, with the ultimate goal of total domination over your cluster.

Additionally, Update 2.0 has changed how the game fundamentally feels for new players. While many gamers are experienced with the title, new players often get stuck early on in Starpoint Gemini Warlords. Now there are a lot of new hints and guides which tell where to go, what a particular symbol on the interface means, or what a certain item in the "Starchart" represents. Lastly, players can now have a full-blown "War Dialogue" between various factions so they feel more alive.

Starpoint Gemini Warlords is a popular space simulator which combines third-person ship combat with strategy and role-playing elements. The goal is to become the warlord of the Gemini system by building mighty fleets and sending them into battle. Unlike many strategy games, Starpoint Gemini Warlords allows you to directly control your ship to show off your battle prowess. You can aim and fire manually or command your gunners to do the job for you. You can even choose companions to follow you into battle if you need an extra hand. Battles in the game are unpredictable, with some being simple duels, while others involve entire fleets.

You can currently purchase Starpoint Gemini Warlords for $34.99 on Xbox One.
