'Starborne: Sovereign Space' Launches New Alpha Test, Accepting Sign-ups

by Rainier on May 18, 2017 @ 7:46 a.m. PDT

Starborne: Sovereign Space is a free-to-play multiplayer strategy game that will pit thousands of players against each other as they build their own galactic empires, competing and cooperating to succeed.

Starborne is a take on the grand-strategy 4X genre with the added powerful impact of being a multiplayer game played in real-time. In Starborne each game will last six months culminating in a decisive endgame.

You start with a fledgling station and as you invest in its infrastructure you will see it take shape and its borders grow, bringing unclaimed territories under your sovereignty. Soon it will be time to build another station with its own unique purpose within your master-plan. Will the next station be a center of research? A military compound? Or an industrial complex?

In Starborne there are multiple paths to success. Spymasters use their gathered intelligence to steer others’ ambitions to their own end. Explorers go on star treks searching for hidden riches and fame while industry moguls establish vast trade networks and utilize the final frontier's boundless resources. Spartan defenders focus on impregnable defenses and use their fleets to protect their sovereignty and that of their allies while Space-Napoleons use their offensive fleets to plunder opponents and pave their path to glory.

The sixth round of alpha for Starborne began today, Thursday April 18th! It will last 8 weeks, ending on 24:00 GMT, Thursday July 13th.
