    Over five million players around the world.

    Sabotage Studio announced that turn-based RPG Sea of Stars is getting 3-player couch co-op in a free update. The developers also confirmed that the game surpassed five million total players around the world. 

    Sea of Stars was inspired by classic Japanese RPGs from the 90s, including Xenogears, Chrono Trigger, and Final Fantasy.

The game sold 100,000 copies on launch day, and went on to sell millions of copies in the months that followed.

    Sea of Stars 3-Player Couch Co-op Update

    The upcoming Sea of Stars update will introduce 3-player couch co-op in the new “Single Player+” mode. Each player gets a turn in the party, and they can take advantage of the new “co-op timed hits” mechanic for more damage.

    “Dubbed ‘Single Player+’, this mode allows for three players to journey together in Sea of Stars,” Sabotage Studio said in a press release. “Staying true to the game’s core turn-based roots, each player will engage in traversal and combat with a new “Co-op timed hits” mechanic as they embark with friends on Sea of Stars’ grand adventure. The new mode is currently in development and more details are set to be released soon.

    Sabotage Studio continued, “Winner of Best Indie of 2023 from The Game Awards, Sea of Stars is the second game from Sabotage Studio and takes place in the same universe as The Messenger, the studio’s award-winning debut. The turn-based RPG is inspired by the heights of ‘90s role-playing classics and follows the story of the two Children of the Solstice and their journey to combine the powers of the sun and moon to perform Eclipse Magic, the only force capable of fending off The Fleshmancer.”

    Lastly, Sea of Stars is available across PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One.
