Starborne is a new strategy MMO where you take on the role of space commander to compete against thousands of other players over control of the galaxy. Forge alliances, build massive fleets and wage wars to expand your space station into a galactic empire!
The game takes place on a seamless map which can currently support up to 2.492 concurrent players. Due to its slow-paced nature in a persistent universe, games in Starborne take months to reach the crucial endgame phase, where the surviving alliances duke it to become the uncontested winner.
Starborne also features a card based customization system, allowing you to enhance your fleets, space stations and alliances. These upgrades enable a wide number of strategies and counters for you to further specialize your playstyle.
While Starborne is still in the early stages of development, we're having regular test games to gather feedback from the community, with the next alpha slated for April 2018. Make sure to follow us to receive development updates and secure a spot for the next test!
Light Ships are cheap to build and available early. They form the bulk of a player's armada for the majority of the game before more specialized and expensive ships become available.
The Corvette is a light attack ship ideal for raiding unsuspecting targets. It can be upgraded with the Stingray or Harpy modifications.
The Patrol Ship is a light defender used to combat both internal and external threats. It can be upgraded with the Albacore or Griffin modifications.
The Scout is a light utility craft specializing in the surveillance and sabotage of enemy installations. It can be upgraded with the Narwhal or Stargazer modifications.
Heavy ships, while more expensive to build, pack quite a punch and form the core in most mid-game armadas. Unlike the light ships which can be built in any shipyard, the heavy ships require a specialized assembly and careful planning to gain the most use out of them.
The Destroyer is a heavy attack ship designed to break up enemy formations. It can be upgraded with the Swordfish or Pegasus modifications.
The Frigate is a formidable heavy defender and mobile enough to support distant allies. It can be upgraded with the Grenadier or Golem modifications.
The Gunship can be described as an explosive tin can and will make short work of enemy stations. It can be upgraded with the Barreleye or Manticore modifications.
Capital ships are the pride of and joy of an armada and a well placed fleet can turn the tide of any battle. They are however prohibitively expensive and difficult to build - Commanders investing heavily into these ships will have difficulties recovering from a defeat.
The Carrier is a capital ship used in large scale attacks where it can support smaller vessels around it. It can be upgraded with the Barracuda or Basilisk modifications.
The Dreadnought is the single most powerful ship in the game and guarantees massive casualties for anyone foolish enough to attack it. It can be upgraded with the Megalodon or Gorgon modifications.
In addition to the ship modifications shown above, Alpha 8 will also see the appearance of a new ship: The Recon. This is the heavy ship variant of the Scout and grants Subterfuge players a much needed boost on the tactical level.
We’re really happy to finally see the IR-2 in the game as it was one of the first ship concepts for Starborne. Either way - thank you for reading. The next post will go into the visual map updates.
3 new classes and 6 specializations are coming to Starborne!
