Steel Shadows is Available on Steam

Jump into the pilot seat and command your own fleet of rogues, pirates, and scoundrels as the studio that brought you Ancient Frontiers has released the follow-up, stand-alone Steel Shadows. Epic space-combat is set on the backdrop of a massive, interstellar war that has been brewing against two opposite, hulking factions — but, instead of playing the hero, join a rebellious pirate-fleet who aim isn’t universal domination but chaos and glory!

Set in the vast, war-ridden universe of Ancient Frontier, Steel Shadows sees players command a rag-tag fleet of pirates, outlaws, and scavengers to expand their network, obtain riches, and survive the pursuit of the Human Federation. Players do not need to own or have played Ancient Frontier to enjoy this new offering from Fairweather Studios.

Play as Rogan Harker, a recently freed convict, who travels to the Frontier to find old friends and start a new life — But the overpowering Federation still controls most of the Frontier, and the new and budding Alliance is no fan of outlaws. Hated and feared, the pirate life is one of constant danger. Friends and allies are hard to find and harder still to keep. Beset on all sides can Rogan find fame and fortune with his fledgling pirate fleet?

Steel Shadows is available on PC through Steam for $14.99 now.
