Receive Steam key to activate the game. Miner Wars 2081 is a 6DOF action-survival space-shooter simulation-game set in the year 2081, 10 years after the destruction of all planetary objects in the Solar System. You operate an advanced mining ship in a fully destructible and open-world environment, which remains persistent as you complete missions or play online with others. Realism and survival are key aspects of gameplay. Inventory and the way you use resources such as fuel, ammunition, oxygen, ore, and weapons are important when surrounded by dozens of warring factions. The gameplay is driven by an epic story and offers a choice of single player, co-op, and death-match multi-player. 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.

New Test Build Update (released on Friday, here just a summary)
Today’s game development news are mostly associated with extension to the first mission. Your first objective now is to destroy energy generators in a space station. The station is hidden inside an asteroid. After the destruction of the generators, you have to run away quickly, since the whole station will explode! Sector for the first mission also now contains new mother ship. 

New or updated features:
- HUD notifications for damage, incoming enemy, solar flare, low fuel.
- New faction-specific prefabs for Russia, China and Fourth Reich.
- Prefab and missile explosions now damage all objects nearby (area damage).
- New server code – you need to connect to our server only when loading a mission or checkpoint or saving/loading your sector in the editor - other than that, you can stay offline.
- Many optimizations, minor improvements and fixes.

look from the bright side, you can atone for it by buying it right now (not to mention that there is a 50% off thing right now)
