The Lords of Winter are Coming... for You

NEW YORK– July 8, 2010– Paradox Interactive and Kerberos Productions today released a new trailer for Sword of the Stars 2, the follow-up hit to the 4X franchise, Sword of the Stars. An evolved version of the original six races from Sword of the Stars and its expansions, Sword of the Stars 2 reveals the deep, dark secret of the Suul’ka.

Boasting an all new graphics engine and incorporating new ship details that allow for new fleet strategies and tactics, Sword of the Stars 2 is poised to revive the 4X space genre.

In the trailer, the Lords of Winter have spread doom over an Argos Naval Yard with a surprise attack. But this time, The Lords of Winter may be you.
