Story and setting EditThe game's prologue begins near the end of Journey, where the player character Incarnate is rescued by Sertum, a character in V1. The plot opens up in 2490 where a nanite epidemic is currently ravaging the Galaxy while a returning faction the Crimus are losing a war against the Elysium Combine. While its plot is unrelated to other Starpath installments, the game acts as a standalone sequel to the first game. The Galaxy by 2490 is divided into quadrants where a superpower called Yscom controls the entire west while other factions are independent.
There are multiple endings to the game that are determined by the player's actions during the main quests.
The game is designed with a semi-open world in mind, where the player travels to areas of certain planets. Players can activate Side Quests by talking to NPCs. Completing Main quests and Side quests earn you experience points, which can be used to level up skills and feats. The player takes on the role of an average citizen, an irrelevant figure who finds himself rescued by an Auditor. 108 years have passed as the Galaxy is witnessing a dark age where superpowers control quadrants.
Players can recruit diverse companions that are available throughout the chapters, which can help you during scenarios.
