Gimbal EXPANSION ONE Header Graphic - May 2003 - RACE - DEATHMATCH - CTF - PARTS

It is with great pleasure that I announce the release of Gimbal Expansion One ! It has taken many months of Beta testing and development, but Expansion One is now here. Thank you, Beta Testers!

This is the largest release of Gimbal features since Gimbal's original launch in August 2012. Expansion One has new game modes, weapons, and features which work together to bring Gimbal in line with my original vision.

It's a free update to Gimbal, so all you have to do is launch Desura and let the automatic updater do its thing.

tried the demo and i love it :)
hope more people will play this in the future!
btw are there plans for different game modes? would be nice to have something like space stations on the map which are conquerable, providing you with a forward base to repair und reammo your ship or maybe stations that grant the team more firepower or armor so there will be battles around these key structures

Boo. I had fully intended on buying until I tried the demo and finally realized it's strictly multiplayer. There's almost no reason to purchase multiplayer only indie games simply for the fact that MOST of them won't have too many players - especially in a year or so.

Is there any way to change the keybindings to WASD on the default ships? When I try and edit them it makes a copy of them.

yes there is but at this point when you star building your ships you will end up manually putting in wasd exc. along with other weapon hot keys and stuff.

Fantastic game with amazing depth due to extremely customizable craft and a great leveling system. Physics and FX are also top notch. Great community - see if the ship you build can conquer the online community

Must Buy!
