Halcyon 6: Lightspeed Edition Release Date Announced
Halcyon 6 : Starbase Commander is a game that we here in Hyper Light Up enjoy a lot. Our reviewer Snowchill gave it a 7,8/10 and I personally previewed it for IGN Greece a year ago, when it was still in Early Access. Now I guess we have another review coming soon, since the developers, Massive Damage, anounced Halcyon 6 : Lightspeed Edition.
In their own words “A community-driven, reworked, rebalanced take on the original game along with new features and content, optimized for faster progression for an action packed adventure on board your favourite starbase.”. That probably means that we’ll have a different experience in our hands and I am all for it.
Halcyon 6 : Lightspeed Edition will be released on August 10th free for all existing players. Here’s more info from the Steam page :
Greatly speeds up progression and tightens the campaign to an action and adventure packed 12 hrs depending on your play style and pace
Streamlined All Systems
