Crying Suns' update "Advanced Tactics" is live!
over 1 year ago – Tue, Jun 16, 2020 at 12:12:47 AM

Greetings Crying Suns fans!

We have just released a massive new update titled “Advanced Tactics” bringing the game to a whole new level of space combat strategies.


The “Advanced Tactics” update is a free extension that includes a wide series of new battle features and other support abilities :

  • New weapons, new squadrons, new auxiliary systems for battleships and brand new officers abilities.
  • Unlockable battleships are now equipped with a unique and specific technological modifier, requiring players to adapt their strategies depending on battleships’ strengths and weaknesses.
  • Players will also find additional neutral units on the battlefield that each opponent can “capture” to gain territorial advantage.
  • New AI enemy behaviors have been added, requiring players to carefully adapt and vary their tactical response.
  • Finally, players will find a new type of POI (points of interest) where they will be able to upgrade their squadrons: The “OMNI Forge”.

We also worked with our localization team to add a new language: Japanese!

To learn more about all the details of this update, here is the full changelog.

This update is available on Steam, GoG and the Humble Store, of course.
