Sword of the Stars is a breakthrough 4X Strategy game brought to you by the core team behind the highly acclaimed title, Home World: Cataclysm. Sword of the Stars returns gamers to the action-packed roots of the 4X genre with some new twists, including a 3D starmap and real-time combat resolution in a 3D environment!

Playing as one of 4 unique races, gamers will explore planets, research new technologies and create empires in a hostile universe where weakness means extinction and only the strongest will survive. Sword of the Stars provides quick, intuitive play, state-of-the-art graphics and tactical combat that make the game instantly involving and rewardingly fun.




Sword of the Stars is a 4X strategy game, set in space. There are 4 races: Humans, Liir (dolphins), Tarkas ( dragons) and Hivers (Insects) . Each race has a unique style of playing and exploring the galaxy which is 3-D.

The Humans use jump engines to travel through subspace at 4 ly/turn, but they must use fixed node points in space and must be able to jump with the energy provided by the power core,no refuel allowed in 5-D.

The Hivers travel very slow at slower than lights speeds, but once arrived, they are able to set up jump gates, traveling instantaneously to any other gate world.

The Tarkas have a common Star Trek hyper drive, enabling them to explore in a free way the galaxy.

The Liir are able to cover great distances, as their ships use infinite-small teleportation,but slow down at half speed near planets and black holes.

Once you encounter a space hazard (meteors, slavers, asteroid monitors, derelicts or space swarms) or enemy ships, a battle occurs in real time and you may see even the crew working inside your cruisers, as all damage is graphical: no health bars.
