Starpoint Gemini 2 gameplay

Starpoint Gemini 2, the sequel to its namesake, takes place in a region of space called Gemini which is a set of several star systems.  Players can choose between story mode or the sandbox-style “freeroam” mode, which lets you act as a freelance commander and take your choice of available missions.   There are some 30 missions involved in the campaign mode, in which players act as Adrian Faulkner, the son of the deceased Gabriel Faulkner, a legendary warrior from the previous Gemini war; you overall mission is to discover the truth about your father’s death and prevent Gemini sector from a foreign invasion.  Players starting in freeroam mode begin by choosing from three character classes: Commanders are better at ship modification; Gunners get combat bonuses; and Engineers excel in ship operations.  You can pick your profession regardless of your class, and players have careers choices like miner, scientist, trader and pirate.

Starpoint Gemini 2 leaves little ships like fighters and bombers to the pilots and puts players in charge of the capital ships that dominate in war; wingmen can be hired as escorts to help defend against those pesky enemy fighters.  There are dozens of ships to choose from, and each has properties unique to it, not to mention its individual appearance.  To fill the battle stations in your battleship, don’t forget to select skilled crew members.  Starpoint Gemini 2 is fully VR-capable.
