Warlords on Xbox One receives economy and gameplay improvements
LGM Games publishes another free update for Starpoint Gemini Warlords on Xbox One which brings a myriad of fixes and improvements; mainly in the area of economy and gameplay.
When it comes to economy, mining in Starpoint Gemini Warlords is now somewhat cheaper. Construction prices for all three mine types have been reduced, as well as the costs for some researches; specifically for Refit and Support research.
Everyone loves collecting resources! Well, there is some great news for you because asteroids, derelicts and gas pockets now give more resources. Additionally, there is a price increase for commodities.
Moving on to gameplay changes, LGM brings good news to all you space truckers; stations now offer a lot more equipment in the storage. Building on top of space trucking; there is a lot of freelancers in the game as well. The new update brings great news in that gameplay area because freelance mission rewards now grant more credits, and they scale a lot better through the game. LGM has also updated the Conquest feature where conquering outposts, stations and planets now give more credits and/or resources.
On top of those changes, the new update brings a new ship! Its name is Glycon and it belongs to a Battleship class, and is a bit more powerful in contrast to other battleships, although not in all statistics.
Finally, good news for warmongers and warlords: boarding has been overhauled! Players now don't have to collect research percentages for foreign ships. So therefore it's now possible to build the foreign ship immediately following the boarding, of course if all the other conditions are fulfilled.
