Love in Space is excited to officially announce that the second chapter of the Sunrider trilogy, “THE MASK OF ARCADIUS” will be published on Steam by Sekai Project on October 1. The Mask of Arcadius adds hours of new story content, game play, and more to the base Sunrider game. Players of First Arrival will be pleased to learn that the Mask of Arcadius utilizes a rewritten battle system which substantially reduces lag, as well implementing a new hex grid which opens up previously impossible strategies. Further, players who were disappointed with the small squad size in First Arrival will be pleased to learn that new mercenary ships are now available for hire to increase your fleet.
The Mask of Arcadius will be released in two editions. The Steam edition will have some story content cut from the release. All of the cut content can be restored to the Steam copy via a patch which will launch at http://sunrider-vn.com at the same time as the Steam release. Once installed, the patch will restore the cut content to the Steam edition, so you will be able to play the game uncut through the Steam client. Sekai Project hopes to eventually integrate the patch into the Steam edition, but this is not expected to happen at the same time as the release.
We hope that you look forward to the Mask of Arcadius and enjoy it when it comes out on October 1. For now, here’s just a preview.
