Stardock extents their technology and gaming partnership with AMD

Stardock Entertainment and AMD have confirmed that they have extended their technology and gaming partnership, revealing that Stardock will optimise Star Control: Origins for AMD Ryzen/Radeon products alongside plans to support AMD’s FreeSync 2 technology. 

In addition to this, Stardock has confirmed their plans to update Star Control to support the Vulkan API after launch, promising closer to the metal optimisation potential, which may increase the game’s performance on Radeon-powered PCs. 

This announcement builds upon the relationship that AMD forged with Stardock when creating Ashes of the Singularity, the poster child of modern graphics APIs, acting as one of the industry’s first DirectX 12 benchmarks. 

In Star Control: Origins, players explore the galaxy inside one of humanity’s first interstellar ships, forging alliances before facing a threat which promises to exterminate humanity as it reaches towards the stars. Players will interact with alien races, explore the universe, design and build ships, uncover relics and precursor artefacts and battle against hostile races. 

Right now, Star Control: Origins is available as part of AMD’s “Raise the Game” bundle, which will give copies of Strange Brigade, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey and Star Control: Origins to purchasers of Radeon RX 570, RX 580, RX Vega 56 and RX Vega 64 graphics cards for a limited time.
