Sea of Stars, last year’s breakout indie RPG that went on to win several awards, is getting DLC in the near future as new content is officially in development. Quebec-based developer Sabotage Studio confirmed in a recent post on Twitter/X that DLC is coming while also dropping the news that the company is already working on its third game following The Messenger and Sea of Stars.
“Back in November the team gathered for Sabobo Summit where the DLC for Sea of Stars was pitched, along with the vision for Game 3,” wrote Sabotage Studio in a recent post, confirming that work is underway for the company’s next game as well as DLC for Sea of Stars. Little is actually known about this DLC but Sabotage hints at it in the post, saying “malevolent spectacle awaits.”
Sea of Stars went on to win Best Indie Game at The Game Awards last year, where it was also nominated for Best RPG (but lost to Baldur’s Gate 3). The game originally began its life as a Kickstarter project before accumulating a lot of interest from the gaming community for its promising pixel art style and a return to nostalgic role-playing games of the 80s and 90s. It currently holds a Top Critic Average of 89 on Open Critic with 97% of critics recommending it.

The description for Sea of Stars reads:
“Promising the Sabotage touch in every system, Sea of Stars aims to modernize the classic RPG in terms of turn-based combat, storytelling, exploration and interactions with the environment, while still offering a hearty slice of nostalgia and good old, simple fun.”
DLC for Sea of Stars could very easily expand the world and storytelling of the base game while bringing new ideas to the table. While Sabotage isn’t a massive team, it looks like the studio’s efforts will be split between the DLC and its third game for the next few years.
