It’s always the same, right? You sit around waiting for one space-shooter or RPG and several really good looking ones turn up at once. Publisher, Iceberg Interactive and developer, Little Green Man Games have finally got around to announcing the release date for their space-shooter come-RPG, Starpoint Gemini 2.

Having already won the coveted PC Gamer’s Best PC Game of 2014 award, it would only be a matter of time before the title headed to Xbox One.

It’s been two years since the end of the second Gemini war. The Empire have reduced a group of freedom fighters, the Gemini League, to a rudderless rag tag fugitive fleet. Just when the huge Imperial war machine was about to crush the last vestiges of hope from the Gemini League they pulled back and began fortifying Starpoint with mammoth numbers.

Take up the story and dive into a journey that will reveal dark secrets and unimaginable twists that will finally yield the incredible truth.

The game will boast all of the PC version’s features but will also have an improved HUD design which has been rebuilt for use with Xbox controllers.

It will also have a new “rotate and follow” camera mode to make it easier to move around during the heat of battle. A heap of xbox achievements and a redesigned user interface round off the Xbox One extras and tweaks that the game will benefit from.

Starpoint Gemini 2 will warp onto an Xbox One near you on the 11th of December.

ID@Xbox takes you to the stars

Sitting here trawling through the GDC ID@Xbox announcements could feel like purgatory in digital form, were it not for Little Green Man Games’ epic-looking space sim that’s been revealed.

Starpoint Gemini 2, we’re not sure what happened to the first one, is a space trading and combat simulator, a little like Wing Commander or Elite. In the campaign, you play as Adrian Faulkner, struggling to unravel the mysteries of his father’s death in his efforts to save Gemini from an invasion. In the PC version, you can freeroam in the massive environment and I hope they bring this feature to the Xbox One version.

The One is short of a space sim at the moment and Starpoint Gemini 2 could be ready to fill that void with massive capital starships, planets, trading posts, asteroid fields and fighter craft. Choose from the multitude of career paths available, including, space pirate, trader, privateer, asteroid miner, gas miner, scientist and explorer.

The trailer is impressive itself, take a look and let us know what you think.
