For Immediate Release

Ancient Frontier, the all-new science fiction story-driven epic, is now available on Steam. Developed by two-man team Fair Weather Studios, the game pits players on a grand story via two fully voiced single-player campaigns spanning the galaxy and around 50+ hours. 

Ancient Frontier combines tactical turn-based combat with RPG progression to create a combat and progression system with depth and plenty of choices. Players can level up their fleet ships as they gain experience and feel the loss of losing a battleship permanently to the depths of space.

Players will explore, conquer, pillage, or liberate the frontiers of space. Take control of massive fleets of capital ships and fighter squadrons to face down enemies in objective-based missions. Players can head from story mission to story mission or take a break with optional side missions allowing them to further level up their ships, abilities, and technology.

 Ancient Frontier is available on Steam for $24.99 (regular price) and comes with a 25% launch discount or a limited time.
