'Fractured Space' Developer Moving On, Will Get One Final DLC

A bold new vision in tactical space combat, Fractured Space puts players at the helm of gigantic capital ships in online, team-based space battles on a cosmic scale.

Fractured Space is a team-based space combat game where two teams fight epic battles in massive capital ships. Combining the intensity of a shooter with the big picture thinking of a strategy game, Fractured Space offers a new frontier in tactical combat. Players can earn credits to expand and upgrade their fleet, with a wide variety of ships across numerous classes and manufacturers to choose from.

Edge Case Games, formed from the team behind Strike Suit Zero, has committed to an open development ethic in bringing Fractured Space to life for PC, working in step with its growing community by sharing early assets, prototypes and project plans while listening to players every step of the way. Founding community members are already contributing to the game’s development as they play and comment on early builds of Fractured 6Space in private playtests.

After a long period of deliberation, Edge Case Games is disappointed to announce the studio is to move away from the further development of Fractured Space.

The move, though incredibly difficult, will enable Edge Case Games to look to new projects and cement its future. Whilst no additional content, updates or patches will be released for Fractured Space as a result, the studio plans to keep the server online for the foreseeable future, enabling everyone to continue having fun playing the game in its current state with all its current modes.

As part of this move, all Platinum will be stripped from the game:

  • Any platinum you currently have stored in your account will be converted into Credits at a rate of 550 Credits per 1 Platinum
  • All items that were previously sold for Platinum will now be available to purchase with Credits such as ship Skins, Legacy Episode Packs, Skin Bundles, and Credit Boosters

With this release, the Infection Episode Pack will be available to purchase for just 1 Credit. Steam DLC will no longer be purchasable from within the game, from the Steam store, or from authorised third-party vendors. However, existing unredeemed keys will still be redeemable in Steam for the content advertised when the key was purchased.

“It’s been an amazing and emotional journey. Edge Case Games would not be anywhere without its incredible players – you have been awesome,” says James Brooksby, CEO of Edge Case Games. “We thank you for all your support and some fantastic memories we will hold dear for the rest of our lives. And, remember; we always had Gamma…”

Fractured Space is currently available for PC on Steam.
