Star Conflict is a dynamic new MMO action game that puts you at the helm of a space ship to fight in the star fleet’s massive battles!

The action in Star Conflict takes place in remote future, in times when mankind seems to have discovered all the secrets of the Universe, and the boundaries of knowledge are left far behind by the progress. But on the very edge of the Galaxy, in Sector 1337, a random expedition suddenly discovers a place of the dead, deserted worlds - the ruins of the great civilization of Precursors, which was destroyed by an unknown deadly anomaly.

This doesn’t stop mankind, the new «owner» of the Universe.

The thirst to know the mysteries of the ancient civilization only flares up the never-ending conflict between the factions that are constantly fighting for the power in the Universe. And now everyone – from warriors to peaceful astrologers – is striving to find the ancient artefacts and learn the mysteries of the Wise.

Many have disappeared — including members of well-armed expeditions — but those who have managed to return have uncovered unprecedented riches. So looters continue to come here, to find the Precursors’ lost treasures — and to fight for them.

This is where Star Conflict begins, the space battle of three factions, the outcome of which will show who will rule the Universe.

With the galaxy on the brink of war and the Precursors’ legacy at stake, elite pilots will be in high demand. Join them in Star Conflict, where a new era of space action awaits!

Many surprises are awaiting not only the experienced space conquerors – participants of the closed beta-test – but also the brand new pilots. We are happy to announce that the new faction will be available at launch of the open beta – the Federation of the Free Planets, and this means twice the possibilities, ships, and available modules.

Apart from the interface changes – a brand new hangar and updated graphical user interface – the new tips screens are now available for all the major game elements. This will allow even the most inexperienced pilots to start conquering the universe with confidence. Also, the new original gameplay elements add to the excitement, for example contracts are now available for each faction.
