Will Sea of Stars have DLC?

Yes, it has been confirmed that Sea of Stars will indeed receive post-launch support through new DLC. This was announced way back in 2020 during the game’s initial Kickstarter campaign.

As the $750,000 stretch goal at the time, devs made clear their plans for the ‘Throes of the Watchmaker’ DLC years before the base game was even finished. This DLC is set to be free for all backers.

While a release window is unclear for the time being, we do have some rough details on what to expect from this DLC. Given it focuses on the Watchmaker character, some dots can already be connected.

However, that might not be it when it comes to Sea of Stars DLC. There could very well be even more content set to arrive further down the line if plans haven’t changed behind the scenes.

“There’s also another one, but that one is a maybe,” Game Director Thierry Boulanger said during a 2022 livestream. We don’t know how well the game will do. So if the game does well enough, yes there would be a second DLC down the line.”
