The latest in the beloved Star Control series is finally live with today’s release of Star Control Origins. Stardock’s alternate universe reboot (yes, it’s confusing) aims to capture the goofy humor, bizarre aliens, and freeform space exploration of the 1990s PC games.
“Take command of Earth’s first and only interstellar starship in this exciting open universe space-adventure RPG!” said Stardock. “Your mission? To save Earth… at all costs and by any means necessary. ”
What’s of particular interest is that SCO features online and local multiplayer, as well as the option to create, share, and download missions with other players. The game is $40 and can be purchased on either Steam or GOG, depending on your preference.
