In Ensign-1 you play the role of a space fighter pilot returning from a deep space colonization mission. On arrival back to our own solar system, you find Earth has been colonized by a hostile alien force. It's now up to you, with the help of your mothership, the Ensign-1, to take it back Ensign-1 allows allows for complete freedom in approaching objectives. You can fight from the safety of your spacecraft, or land and exit to explore space stations and carriers on foot. You can commandeer any spacecraft in the game, no matter how big or how small. Defend an asteroid base, or take the fight to the enemy with a huge mothership, friends manning turrets, it's your choice. The game also features a multiplayer mode where players can explore a randomly generated galaxy, either fighting co-operatively to clean out enemy fighters, or battling each other for supremacy.
Ensign-1 now features multiple gravity wells for players to explore, each with varying degrees of difficulty and filled with different starbases and ships in each.

I've been working on this update for awhile, and the multiplayer servers now generate a much larger world for players to explore in. The starting area will now be a safe haven for players to meet up in before deciding where to venture out to. However, gravity wells farther out will be progressively more challenging.
As you can see, you now have access to a minimap which you can use to warp to and from different hotspots.
In the future, I'm hoping to capture events such as exploring an area with some friends and finding an enemy outpost. Your side might start losing, but then your teams capital flagship warps in with reinforcements, and the rush you'd get from that.
Next up on the agenda will be addition of money into the game. Players will earn credits for destroying enemies, and with that money you'll be able to upgrade your ships systems, armor, and weapons, so stay tuned!
