In Miner Wars 2081, as a player, you operate an advanced mining ship in an open world asteroid belt area. You dig kilometers of tunnels, harvest the ore, travel the solar system, fight your enemies and discover mysterious alien secrets. The story will introduce you to many types of missions: rescue, exploration, revenge, base defense, theft, transportation, stealth, search and destroy, pure harvesting, racing or just flying around and destroying everything you see.
The demo version of the game will run much like the full version. It will include all of the same features (i.e. harvesting, drilling, weapons, etc.) and receive regular updates. The only restriction will be the limitation that confines players to one particular sector in space.
