Did you vote for Galactic President Prolapser in Ascent? Possibly not, but everyone has to deal with what’s happened as a result of his administration. Said president has instituted sweeping price reforms, making the prices of things like meat much lower and the price of raw materials much higher. Planetary mayors are also now able to ban certain goods from their colonies. The result of all these changes? Smuggling operations, naturally. Why would you think otherwise?
Players also get to take on all of these issues with the help of a new interface, which looks a bit slimmer and more attractive. You can check out some of the changes in the screenshot gallery just below, or just pop into the game in Early Access now.
