Over 350 years in the future mankind has embraced space travel and exploration. We have colonized many worlds and spread ourselves across the galaxy. The Colonial Defense Force (CDF) is responsible for the security of Earth and her colonies, and our only line of defense against the unknown.

On March 1st 2368 contact was lost with our most distant colony, located in the Icarus system. Two days later the Dreadnought class spaceship CDF Goliath was dispatched to investigate. Experience the events that transpire as a Marine on the boarding party to the Icarus 3 Space Station and as a pilot returning from another mission a few days later.

Discover what happened to the CDF Goliath and why nine days after entering the Icarus system it was finally declared a Ghostship.


Story Mode

Play from the viewpoint of 2 different characters in an open world with random events and enemies, and a huge focus on atmosphere and immersion.

Skirmish Mode

You are one of the last survivors! With just 1 life, escape the ship if you can!

Onslaught Mode

A wave based survival mode where you must kill as many enemies as you can. There are 8 different onslaught maps which are based on locations from the story mode.

Challenge Mode

Offers a variety of diverse challenges which will test your combat ability, agility, and problem solving skills. There are 8 different challenge maps which are based on locations from the story mode.

Simulation Mode

Consists of a wide variety of single missions based on historic CDF battles and simulations created for the Marines on the Goliath to hone their skills.

Multiplayer & Co-op

We are planning to add multiplayer and coop game modes if there are enough funds to support it. The more friends you get to buy CDF Ghostship, the more likely it is you'll get to play it with them.

Definitely needs a graphics-crappifying option, otherwise I can't play. 5 hours of download with power outages and lost connections for no resason... :l

I'm having a problem with the game forcing me into helmet mode when I hit a load point and being unable to switch back, making it essentially unplayable. And thats a shame because I'm liking what I see so far, quite a bit.

Just start a new game, and dont select helmet mode, then you will be in normal first person for the rest of that game :)

At no time am I selecting helmet mode, the game forces it on me after the first loading screen when you leave the hangar. Nothing I press can get me out of it. Restarting fixes the problem until I get to that loading screen again and I'm back in helmet mode.

That is strange. The best thing to do is to go your udkgame/binaries folder, both win32 and win64 and delete the file GSstorysave

It should have a number after it. Delete that file in both 32 bit and 64 bit and try it again. it must be reading from your previous save game :)

I see this is listed as being for Windows, Mac, and LInux, but only see a Windows exe for the Alpha. Is there a Linux version of the Alpha?

Check out that link, thanks to Booman, you can get Ghostship up and running on Linux, hopefully by the final release stage we might be able to provide a native linux version.
