Star Control: Origins is due to receive part two of its four-part expansion, Earth Rising sooner rather than later. Return of the Lexites will present players with their greatest challenges yet – A post-singularity species whose motives are a total mystery. The Lexites are halting Earth’s progress into space, and as the Captain of Earth’s first interstellar ship, it’s up to you to visit new worlds, engage in combat against new ships, and unravel the mysterious plans of the post-humans who left Earth.
“Because Star Control is a non-linear RPG, the Earth Rising expansion series doesn’t require you to have completed the main story-line,” said Brad Wardell, Designer of Star Control: Origins. “As we release each part to the expansion, players get to experience an ever richer sandbox to explore.”
