Halcyon 6: Lightspeed Edition is a captivating space strategy RPG that boasts a range of impressive features, including base building, crew management, and deep tactical combat. Your mission is to restore and rebuild the derelict Halcyon 6 station, left behind by a precursor race on the edge of Terran space. With its resources, you must assist the New Terran Federation in forming alliances, researching new technologies and, ultimately, stopping an incoming alien invasion.
The game draws inspiration from classics such as Star Control, X-COM, and Civilization, all while incorporating new elements that make it stand out. You can spend resources to build new station facilities, colonies, and starships that help you control a larger part of the sector, and assign your fleets to explore nearby star clusters for resources and allies.
The game features both tactical ship and ground battles, where your crew can contribute in unique ways, be it in combat, missions, or events, and the story you experience is dependent on game criteria such as rooms built, alien diplomacy scores, officer traits/skills. Each event presents multiple outcomes and consequences, leading to some crazy in-game stories.
The Lightspeed Edition of Halcyon 6 retains all the original features and brings in additional content such as the Combat & Customization, Diplomatic Diversions, Loot’em Up, and Morale Booster updates released since the 2016 launch. New Lightspeed Edition features include a streamlined campaign, enhanced combat with 25+ new alien faction space combat abilities, more combos for both players and enemies, increased faction weaknesses and resistances, and new UI overhaul for greater readability and usability. With the introduction of new officer progression and prestige classes and a new ship loadout and configuration screen, you can customize loadouts and save them for future use.
With the game being streamlined to a 12-hour adventure, Halcyon 6: Lightspeed Edition is a fantastic RPG for anyone looking for a deep dive into a gripping space adventure.
