Miner Wars is a 6DOF underground and space shooter played in a fully destructible environment and is a combination of single player story game and MMO.

As a player, you operate an advanced mining ship in an open world asteroid belt area. You dig kilometers of tunnels, harvest the ore, travel the solar system, fight your enemies and discover mysterious alien secrets.

Game play is led by an epic story and is a combination of a single/multi-player game, cooperative, or you against everyone.

The story will introduce you to many types of missions: rescue, exploration, revenge, base defense, theft, transportation, stealth, search and destroy, pure harvesting, racing or just flying around and destroying everything you see.

We are very proud to announce that our start of the closed beta went almost flawlessly. We have started to work closely with about 50 beta testers and are receiving bug reports and all kinds of suggestions on regular basis. People are playing and discussing lively about the game and were loving it.

All the feedback that the testers are giving us having a big impact on the game development as we are closely listening to all of our fans. Its a game for the players after all.

We still have some beta testing places open, but because of the enormous interest the current open places are beginning to grow thin. We urge all the people interested to join the closed beta testing to apply using the rules in this forum thread.

Furthermore we would like to announce that as of this day were starting a new competition to create a logo of our engine VRage. This engine is what powers Miner Wars. VRage engine supports a dynamic full destructible environment. VRage will be made available to all Indie development teams in the future for modest price levels. We would like it to become a tool of young studios that want to create new original titles.

These are the basic rules of the competition.

Key Features:

  • 6DOF
  • Fully Destructible Environment
  • Single Player Story & MMO
  • Persistent open world - millions of km
  • 15 mission types: Revenge, Mining, Harvesting, Defending, Exploration, Rescue and more
  • High quality rendering
