'Star Conflict' Content Update Overhauls Progression System, Adds New Ships And Sectors

by Rainier on March 6, 2018 @ 9:00 a.m. PST

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!

In a major redesign of the game’s progression system, players can now earn experience points and unlock new content by taking part in a story-driven campaign. The update offers beginners a gradual introduction to the game’s warring factions, different ship types, and incrementally increasing complex combat scenarios, while experienced pilots can head directly to more challenging adventures in outer space on new, powerful ships.

A journey that will take players hundreds of light years through the galaxy, begins at the United Mercenary Center, where the player joins a group of elite scouts searching for the missing fleet of the powerful, but enigmatic Ellydium Corporation. While looking for clues on what could have possibly caused an entire fleet of an interstellar conglomerate to vanish without a trace, the player gradually delves deeper into the unknown. Interacting with the different factions of the Star Conflict universe, the player fights increasingly stronger human and alien enemies and expands his or her fleet with new and more powerful ships. Hardened by countless of battles and supported by loyal allies, the player will then be able to unravel the mystery behind the disappearance of the Ellydium fleet and launch a mission to get it back.

Besides the new campaign mode, the “Journey” update adds new top-tier ships, such as the ‘Wolfhound’ fighter. Using the ‘Wounded Beast’ ability, the ship can significantly increase its combat power if the hull is critically damaged. The new command fighter ‘Granite’ is capable of protecting itself against both physical damage and hackers, as it can use its ‘Anti-Sabotage 2.1’ ability to prevent enemy hackers from taking over ship control.

Furthermore, two new space sectors can now be explored in the Star Conflict universe: ‘PB #42’ is located just above the surface of a planet, where high cliffs provide protection for support ships as fighters can use the cover to flank the enemy’s positions. ‘Excavation Site #6’ features a similar, but more barren environment. Here, the focus is on long-range engagements, but smaller vessels can still take advantage of the uneven surface.

Key Features:

  • A Fleet at Your Fingertrips: Take command of varied battleships, from nimble scouting ships to heavy frigates loaded with guns and rockets. In due time, you can command your own fleet.
  • Choose Your Path: Each ship can be used for strategic missions—investigate the area, hunt enemies from the shadows, or gain support from allies. The impressive arsenal of weapons and gadgets available will help with your success.
  • If You’re Not With Us, You’re Against Us!: Form an alliance with friends to create a deadly squadron of elite pilots. Enter your name in the annals of Universe history. Send enemies scrambling when they see your ship approach!
  • Gain Experience and Skill: However strong and dexterous you are as a pilot, there’s always room to improve. Develop your abilities, establish specialized skills, and perfect your tactics. You could rush into battle full-force, operate stealthily from a distance, or sneak around your enemies and strike a crushing blow from behind—the strategy is up to you!
