Star Supremacy releases new updates to celebrate Christmas after it attracts over 50,000 users in one month of Open Beta
December 17, 2011 – It’s been one month since Barbily launched its free-to-play sci-fi MMORTS, Star Supremacy into Open Beta. Since launching, Star Supremacy has attracted over 50,000 users almost filling up Star Supremacy’s game server. A new second server is being planned the team says.
In light of Christmas, Star Supremacy will be hosting some rewarding Christmas events as well as releasing a bunch of new updates to the game.
Star Supremacy update “Gemini” will open new worlds with access to rare special resources. New adventures and rewards await for both established and new players.
In the new version, the triplet stars of Shaula, Nunki and Aldebaran have returned together allowing free travel between them. Defend your treasured lands from whoever may invade!
Updates (more can be seen on the event page) include:
Also, details on the Christmas event (more information including screenshots can be found on the event page):
Santa will appear on the 9 neutral planets at 13:00 and 19:00 server time every day. Each planet only has one Santa who will remain for half an hour. During this time, players need to find out the coordinates of Santa, accept the mission and help Santa to find his sleigh.
The Santa Sleigh is droppable in all nodes. Higher level nodes have higher drop rates. If you find more sleds than you need, auction them to other players. Players will be awarded a Xmas Stocking after they finish the mission. There are Xmas presents and unique festive equipment to be found!
