Sometimes a new sequel comes with a discount for the rest of the series, but usually that discount isn’t 100%. Iceberg Interactive is celebrating the launch of Starpoint Gemini Warlords by offering Starpoint Gemini 2 completely free on Steam.

The free period is fleeting however. You will need to click on the Install Game or Play Game button on the Starpoint Gemini 2 Steam Store page before Wednesday, May 24 at 10 am Pacific/1pm Eastern to permanently add the game to your library. Pretty sweet deal for a game that costs $34.99.

The Origins DLC is also free, though you’ll need to go to its store page and add it separately after adding SG2.

Created by indie developer Little Green Men Games, space-sim and RPG Starpoint Gemini 2 released in 2014, where it went on to sell 300,00 copies. It received mixed to favorable reviews, sitting at a 70 score on Metacritic. Users reviews are much higher and the series enjoys an active fan base.

Like SG2, Starpoint Gemini Warlords enjoyed a successful stint on Steam Early Access. The release version is out today, May 23. Starpoint Gemini Warlords represents a community-driven sequel to SG2, including adding 4X strategy game elements.

Here is the official description:

Command your starship, send your war fleets into enemy territory, level up, gain skills, engage in branching dialogues, lead your heroic companions into battle, build up your stronghold, trade, mine, salvage and remind your enemies of why they fear you. Strategy from the front lines!

Both games feature full mod support and Steam Workshop integration. Starpoint Gemini Warlords is launching with a standard edition at $34.99 and a Digital Deluxe Edition for $39.99.
