'Star Conflict' Evolution Update Adds New Class Of Starships

by Rainier on Dec. 20, 2016 @ 8:31 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!

The Evolution Update introduces the crystalline vessels of Ellydium Corporation, a new class of starships that can change their characteristics through ‘evolution’, yielding an unprecedented degree of combat flexibility for their captains.

Featuring both human and alien technology, vessels of the recent Ellydium branch offer powerful options for customization. Each ship consists of two main components: A crew compartment for control, and a surrounding crystal mass that defines its unique characteristics. By evolving the latter, players can not only vary between highly distinctive variations of their vessels but also upgrade their ship’s special modules and weapons. Contrary to regular ships in Star Conflict, ranking depends on the individual evolutionary stage and can be reversed or completely changed at any time.

The first of its kind, the Thar’Ga is a formidable gunship available in five different variations. Each variation will equip the vessel with a different set of characteristics, which will significantly change its appearance. The ‘Crystal Hunger’ variation is a perfect for bold and determined pilots. It is a high-speed vessel with a high rate of fire power that swiftly navigates the battlefield, overwhelming its enemies. For more composed captains, the ‘Hive’ variation transforms the vessel into a full-fledged mothership that is capable of launching combat drones from a safe distance. Another notable variation, ‘Condensing Crystals’, equips the ship with a powerful, long-range missile launcher. Each hit leaves shards of healing crystals behind, which a calculating sniper can collect to restore its own hull after clearing the enemy from an area.

In the open world, players will now be able to find a new station, Ellydium Theta, created by the eponymous corporation that designed the crystalline ships. Located in a strange and unusual sector of the universe, the station’s massive size and detail invites players looking for hidden riches to carefully investigate its surroundings.

To evolve Ellydium vessels, pilots need to obtain a special resource called Xenocrystals, which can be obtained in special quests and tournaments, yielding new evolvable designs for the bravest pilots.

Additionally, in celebration of the holiday season and New Year, players can unlock two rare ships by participating in special events running from December 20th to January 17th. The new rank 10 attacker ‘Dart’ of the Jericho faction and the Empire’s new rank 10 frigate ‘Gargoyle’ are equipped with unique weapons and combat drones and are ready for new captains to take command.

To make sure that all Star Conflict pilots are ready to meet the unknown fully armed, all ship packs available in the Gaijin Store and on Steam will be discounted by 50% and more from December 22nd until January 2nd.
