Gaijin Entertainment is pleased to announce that Star Conflict, a space-themed action MMO for PC that has been in beta for the past year, is now available on Steam. After a year of hard work improving the game based on beta testers’ feedback, Gaijin and Yekaterinburg-based developer Star Gem, Inc. are pleased to welcome players from all over the world to the Star Conflict universe. You can register to participate in the open beta and download the game client through Steam (http://store.steampowered.com/app/212070/), as well as from the official website (http://star-conflict.com/).
Star Conflict takes place in a remote future, in a time when mankind seems to have discovered all of the secrets of the Universe, and the boundaries of knowledge have been left far behind by progress. But on the very edge of the galaxy, in Sector 1337, a random expedition unexpectedly reveals a dead, deserted world—the ruins of a great civilization of Precursors that was destroyed by an unknown anomaly. This discovery comes with a price, as the desire to uncover this ancient civilization’s mysteries aggravates the ongoing conflict between the factions that are constantly fighting for control of the universe. Now everyone from warriors to peaceful astrologers is hunting for ancient artifacts and trying to learn the mysteries of the Wise. This is where Star Conflict begins—with a space battle between three factions, the outcome of which will determine who will rule the stars.
People who played Star Conflict a year ago won’t even recognize it today. During the closed and open beta tests, Star Conflict gained a new PvE game mode. You can also choose from one of three factions—Empire, Federation, or Jericho—each with its own distinct ships. In addition to interface changes (such as a brand new hangar and an updated graphical UI), new tutorial screens are now available for all the game’s major elements. Also, the original gameplay elements have been enhanced to add to the excitement, such as a modified tree of ships, new contracts, new game modes, and new gameplay difficulty levels. There’s also a brand new Corporation System that allows you to choose your leaders and conquer space.
To provide players with interesting and useful details about the game's content, Gaijin has updated the official Star Conflict website (http://star-conflict.com). There, you can learn the history of every in-game location, check out the specific abilities of warriors from different factions, and find the bravest pilots and the best killers in the new Ratings section. Plus, developer diaries and fan-videos are just a few of the goodies you can find in the Community section.
The game has gone through a lot of changes in the past year, and with today’s launch on Steam you can see them for yourself. This is just the beginning for this expansive space MMO: one small step for the developers, and a giant leap for the Star Conflict universe.
