Greetings Commanders! We hope that everyone is enjoying their exploits on the Frontier. Today is a huge update as we finally reveal the voice acting. We also bring you new events and a few balance changes.

Voice Acting!

We are very pleased to finally bring full voice acting to all of the lines in the game. We know this is a feature many of you have been requesting. After months of work this feature is now finally fully realized.

We want to extend a huge thank you to the voice actors and actresses who poured their energy into bringing these characters to life. Your talents are very appreciated. Also a special thank you to all of the returning characters who reprised their roles from the first game.

Be sure to let us know what you think of the voice acting in the forums and in your reviews!


We are proud of how the sound work turned out. However, we know that some people prefer the game the way it has been, with no voices. For those people, we also have you covered. Simply go to the options menu and turn the dialogue volume slider all the way down, and you can enjoy the game as you have.

New Events

We continue to expand the number of random events in the game. This should continue to make each playthrough even more unique and immerse you in the life of being a fleet commander on the Frontier. This has been a popular addition to the game, and we hope to continue to bring you more events. This patch adds another group of random events to the pool.

Balance Tweaks

We have gotten a fair amount of feedback that the later boss missions are too difficult, even on the easiest difficulty level. Part of this is related to the difficulty in general of turrets. To address this we have reduced the difficulty on all of the late game boss fights, and reduced the number of turrets on all difficulty levels on all missions that had them. Hopefully these missions are a little easier.

We are looking over the player data from the last several months and will be using that to potentially make additional balance tweaks in the future.

Bug Fixes

Finally, we think the game is largely bug free. However there were a few small issues that should be addressed in today's patch.

  • Fixed all bugs related to all events not spawning for older games.
  • Fixed minor display errors that could occur on a ship's detail inspection.

And... that's it! We hope everyone continues to enjoy their adventures on the Frontier.

Thank you for playing our games!
