Venture forth into a massive open universe, rich with adventure and the lore of the Star Traders. Choose your path by assembling and commanding your custom crew and spaceship in a constantly evolving galaxy torn by internal strife, political intrigue, and alien threats. Will you fly as a pirate terrorizing shipping lanes, join the solar wars as a military captain, or track targets across the stars as a fearsome bounty hunter?

Destroy enemy ships with all hands on deck and your crew will become more bloodthirsty and savage. Explore distant worlds and loot dangerous wastelands and your crew will become intrepid and clever ... or scarred and half-mad.

First there was the Exodus – when survivors of a great war left the ruins of the Galactic Core behind in search of a new home in the stars. Scattered worlds were claimed on the fringe of the galaxy. Each pocket of survivors held on to an isolated set of worlds while trying to rebuild under the great law of Shalun. Three centuries later, technology has brought them back together again. Discovery of the hyperwarp has bridged what was once an unimaginable distance between far-flung colonies, long-lost families, and political factions.

With that reunification has come great economic prosperity. The hyperwarp reestablished the transportation of cargo, goods, and technologies between the quadrants – but it has also brought great strife. Political rivalries have been rekindled, blood has been shed in age-old feuds, and the fires of war have been stoked. Amidst the political infighting, a ruthless revolution is rising – and the fervent explorers of the hyperwarp have awoken something that was better left asleep.

Our very first game, Star Traders RPG, took hundreds of thousands of gamers on an interstellar adventure. Star Traders’ success and overwhelmingly positive reception helped to launch Trese Brothers Games. It was the adventures of our community’s star-crossed captains that put us on a trajectory to share more of our worlds, ideas, and dreams.

We set out to capture the loneliness, bravery, and camaraderie of people living together in a spaceship sailing across the stars. It is with great pride that after releasing four other games in the Star Traders universe, we’ve created a sequel to the original Star Traders RPG.

Step onto the bridge of your starship, take to the stars, and create your own story in Star Traders: Frontiers.

Brilliant space adventurer

Steep learning curve, huge depth, real triumph of a 4x game. Once you’ve maxed out your ship and crew stats/weapons you’re pretty much unstoppable, to the extent that it becomes little more than a clunky, slow, space-themed slightly repetitive fetch and deliver exercise. But even then there’s enough going on here to keep you occupied - definitely weeks of gameplay - making it astonishing value for money compared to much of the thin/slight/pay-to-win stuff so common to iOS games. Buy it, you won’t regret it.

Deep and steep

I’ve been a fan of their games for ages now, and this is probably my favourite so far (TBF is the challenger)

There’s so many variables and it’s not dumbed down to DPS or anything- multiple ways to play makes for lots to explore!

One issue that’s causing me a bit of frustration is the play balancing for combat - it would be great to get more visibility of what influences your stats and capabilities. Mainly because I’m getting regularly pwned in ship combat so I can’t even get started in hard difficulty!

Superb game

Great game, complex and involved. Can be played like a slightly simpler version of elite dangerous (just more turn based and tip down), or as I have been, imagining a slightly alternate version of firefly, just in a different galaxy, with different characters and aliens instead of reavers!

Keep up the good work, another brilliant game!
