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!

This new update brings several major features, particularly concentrating on non-corporation players and improving their game experience.

Update 1.2 finally lets mercenaries - non-corporate Star Conflict players - join Dreadnought battles for control over sectors directly, entering a queue system and skipping the previous need to ‘call for help’ from a corporation. Following conflicts, a post battle report will reward players based on their contribution to the battle. Another addition for mercenaries are new customizable spacecraft with offensive and defensive capabilities depending on player play style, 6 variants are available. Lastly, a new Defense Contract mode tasks mercenaries with defending peace loving locations in outer space from errant pirates while corporations engage in deep interstellar battles with their alien foe.  

“The ‘Dogs of War’update offers a lot of new content and game additions tailored to our mercenary players,” said Stanislav Scorb, CEO of StarGem Inc. “Previously, certain aspects of the game were only accessible to corporation members, including the Dreadnought battles, which are very popular. We want everyone to enjoy the Star Conflict experience, and ‘Dogs of War’allows that”.

Two new locations introduced in the update include Monolith Ruins, a city that was previously the main shrine of the Jericho faction provides players with a variety of cunning tactics to employ including ambushes or life or death chases through the narrow streets. Sanctuary, located in the orbit of the heavily conflicted planet Tar where the first evidence of Precursors, the legendary race, were found and which is now filled with pirates and all manner of players,  a place of endless strife and battle. Star Conflict’s “Dogs of War” update will also introduce a new boss, known as the Destroyer, a lone being hellbent on destroying all missile defense systems, which small teams of players will need to bring down providing they can work together.
