star traders: frontiers issues relic update for linux mac windows

Star Traders: Frontiers releases a big update with a major milestone called RELIC for Linux, Mac and Windows via Steam. This introduces a completely new style of play, profession and a new major system, Salvaging at Orbitals.

RELIC update details:

While Salvaging shares some cross-over with other orbital ops (Spying, Blockading, Patrolling). This is an extreme high risk and high reward variation. Since Salvaging operations are tied directly to fickle Rumors. So there is a better change of making a credit or two.

Also salvage sites can only be found where there are certain Rumors. So check out Derelict Space Hive, Abandoned Military Station, Abandoned Medical Station, Orbital Construction and Orbital Disaster. These 5 new rumors open up 5 distinct versions of the Salvage mini-game. Since they each have of unique risk and reward cards.

So if you are looking for weapons. Players will only find them on military stations. Some of the most valuable specialist gear around is available on abandoned medical stations. And so can a lot of other bad things.

You will also want to hire those with skills at picking over wrecks — Scavengers. This new Job adds 13 exciting Talents that mix Salvage, Explorer and Doctor. Since everything exists in some form of decay. A Scavenger knows how to patch it up or rip it apart to get the best value.
