A year ago Stardock announced it would be adding a new title to the Star Control franchise, and today Star Control: Origins can now be pre-ordered. The game is set in the year 2086 and tasks the player to explore the galaxy, encounter alien civilizations, and discover new worlds, while trying to save humanity from imminent annihilation.
Star Control: Origins will not release until next year, but those who pre-order will get access to the Super-Melee beta coming next month. In this players will make fleets of ship, and each can have its own powers, abilities, and equipment and players can also customize their appearance. These fleets then go to battle against the computer or against other humans in ranked or unranked multiplayer.
The Star Control: Origins pre-order is available on Steam, GOG, and Stardock for just $24.99, but the bundle that includes Star Control: The Ur-Quan Masters and Star Control: Kessari Quadrant is $29.99.
