Developer Sabotage Studio announced this week that their latest turn-based role-playing game ‘Sea of Stars’ has surpassed five million players across all platforms. To celebrate, the studio has put out some videos—along with a teaser for a new playable cooperative mode that will let up to three players get in on the rock-solid RPG of last year. Take my word for it: check out our review of the game this way. The game is also currently available on Xbox Game Pass.

Per their PR:

Dubbed “Single Player+”, this mode allows for three players to journey together in Sea of Stars. 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. 

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.

Launched last summer to critical praise from media and fans, Sabotage Studio’s Sea of Stars is available across PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One for $34.99; it’s also free to subscribers to Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass, as well as PlayStation Plus’ Extra and Premium membership tiers.

It’s official, Sea of Stars has been played by over 5 MILLION people!!!

This milestone is surely deserving of a celebratory dance, or perhaps even, a Dance of Five Million Suns? ☀️ pic.twitter.com/pkG7UUYWY3
