Lighthouse Interactive Releases New Multiplayer Demo For Critically Acclaimed 4x Space Strategy Game Sword Of The Stars: Collector's Edition
In honor of the recent launch of their critically acclaimed 4X space strategy game Sword of the Stars: Collector’s Edition, leading Publisher Lighthouse Interactive and accomplished developer Kerberos Productions, released a new demo today. This demo was taken from the gold master code, which is the very latest version of the game, and is representative of the Sword of the Stars universe as it is now.
Sword of the Stars: Collector’s Edition began shipping to retailers across the United States and Canada earlier this month. The Collector’s Edition brings the entire Sword of the Stars universe together by including the official add-on Born of Blood, which has never been released to retail in North America. It is packed with exclusive bonus material, further upgrades, and a 150+ page Sword of the Stars paperback novel entitled, The Deacon’s Tale, penned by renowned science fiction author Arinn Dembo.
Chris Stewart, Producer at Kerberos Productions said, "The entire Kerberos team is fired up about the release of the Collector’s Edition because fans of Sword of the Stars will now have a chance to play the long awaited expansion Born of Blood. For newcomers, we’ve created a comprehensive tutorial video pack to ease player into the Sword of the Stars universe. The demo is based on version 1.5.2 – the most awesomest version – of the game, and covers gameplay leading up to the Cruiser/Fusion era, two wicked maps, and multiplayer action for up to three players. Our goal is to whet the appetites of strategy game fans that have yet to enter the vast world of Sword of the Stars.”
