Polaris Sector’s 1.03c patch is now live. The update consists of many tweaks, fixes and UI improvements which will no doubt make your Polaris Sector experience better than ever.

But it’s not all! We have a little treat for you. Considering how vast and complex the research system in Polaris Sector is, we thought it would be handy for all players to have some assistance. Therefore we are working on a new page on the Polaris Sector site, detailing all available technologies in the game and the relations between! So stay tuned for more news!

If you don't have the Steam version you can download the patch here
