Star Control: Origins to receive 4-part Earth Rising DLC - Free Reinforcements DLC lands today

The story of Stardock's Star Control: Origins is now set to continue, starting later this month with the first release of the game's "Earth Rising" quadrilogy, which will cover the expansion of humankind across the cosmos.  

In the first part of this $19.99 season pass, which will release under the "Aftermath" title, will bring additional story elements to the core game with dozens of missions, new alien races and a range of new ships. 

This will add tremendously to Star Control: Origins' wealth of existing content, which will soon grow with the release of the game's free Reinforcements DLC later today, almost doubling the number of ships that are available within the game's "Fleet Battles" mode, adding tremendously to the game's combat variety.  

With the release of Aftermath, players will discover that not all aliens are happy at the prospect of an expanding human empire. Some will conspire in the shadows to endanger players, or otherwise undermine the successes of the Earth's captain and their seemingly primitive technology. This story will be expanded further with additional season pass content. 

Part one of Stardock's "Earth Rising" season pass for Star Control: Origins will release on December 11th, bringing Aftermath to purchasers. Part 2 will become available later this winter with part 3 releasing this spring while the DLC's finale, part 4, will release sometime in summer 2019. 


     The story of Star Control: Origins continues next week with Earth Rising, a 4-part season pass that covers humanity's expansion into the galaxy.

The first part, Aftermath, will release on December 11, 2018. Earth Rising will add dozens of missions, new alien races, and a variety of ships.

As Captain of Earth's first interstellar starship, your primary mission is to ensure the safety of Earth from hostile alien forces through a combination of diplomacy and combat skill, while acquiring the materials and technologies Earth needs to begin growing beyond its home solar system.

In the first part, Aftermath, players discover that not every alien is happy about the prospect of an expanding human empire. There are unknown enemies lurking in the shadows seeking to undermine Earth's ambitions, while others begin to react to the recent successes of the Earth captain and his primitive ship.

While the expansion adds a great deal of content for those who have already completed the major events of Star Control: Origins, much of the new content greatly expands the richness of the Star Control universe for first-time players, including many new side-quests, new alien species, and new ships to recruit.

Star Control: Origins - Earth Rising is $19.99 with Part 1, Aftermath, available on December 11. Part 2 will be released this winter, Part 3 this spring and Part 4 this summer.
