Open beta testing for Star Conflict has been launched!
24 July 2012
Gaijin Entertainment is happy to announce the long-awaited launch of the open beta testing for Star Conflict, a brand new space MMO action game for PC.
Along with Yekaterinburg-based developer Star Gem Inc we are ready to let everyone wishing to conquer the infinite vastness of space join this new dynamic multiplayer online project of Star Conflict. Open beta testing starts today, July 24, 2012.
You can register for the participation in the open beta and download the game client right now on our official website http://star-conflict.com/
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. 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. This is where Star Conflict begins, the space battle of three factions, the outcome of which will show who will rule the Universe.
Many surprises are awaiting not only the experienced space conquerors – participants of the closed beta-test – but also the brand new pilots. We are happy to announce that the new faction will be available at launch of the open beta – the Federation of the Free Planets, and this means twice the possibilities, ships, and available modules.
Apart from the interface changes – a brand new hangar and updated graphical user interface – the new tips screens are now available for all the major game elements. This will allow even the most inexperienced pilots to start conquering the universe with confidence. Also, the new original gameplay elements add to the excitement, for example contracts are now available for each faction. It's a great way to earn reputation with the faction you love as well as upgrade your loyal battle vessels.
On top of that, new sectors have been unlocked that you can scour after the battle in search for useful artefacts. Those wishing to join forces with friends in their conquests can do so by creating a combat squad and taking advantage of the team-play to bring victory to their brothers in arms. By picking their favorite battleship anyone can find their niche in the fight – a rogue scout, a team fighter, and a “one-man army”.
To give the open beta testers additional interesting and useful information on the game's content, we updated the official GAME section on the website. There, you can clarify the configuration of your spaceship, learn the history every location in the game, check out the specific features of warriors from different factions.
Bear in mind that the Star Conflict open beta launches today, on July 24, 2012. This signifies the ever-important space saying: Who's good, who's bad - it matters not, it matters only who has the Dreadnought!
