Starfall Tactics is a real-time wargame powered by Unreal Engine 4. In a decaying, war-torn galaxy dominated by three rival factions, you can assemble your own spaceship flotilla and lead it into battle. Adapt to new challenges by customizing and decking out your ships. Evolve your tactics by unlocking new parts and finding rare ship modules. Dominate the battlefield and create a name for yourself among the stars!

Tactical combat

Fight your battles using a variety of ships - from subtle frigates, to deadly cruisers and heavy dreadnoughts. However, a reliable fleet isn't the only ingredient for success. Effective commanders will have to rely on their ability to properly assess the situation, taking into account many factors, such as the equipment of enemy ships, the surrounding environment and the available technology.

In-depth customization

Everything in Starfall Tactics, from the hull of your ship down to the individual engines, is created using blueprints. Players can easily customize and outfit ships, adapting their tactics for a variety of situations. Every choice matters - the diverse range of tools directly influences your strategy against opponents and allows you to create truly unique fleets.

Glorious battles

Experience epic battles, balls-to-the-wall explosions and stunning visuals delivered via the Unreal Engine 4.

Galaxy conquest

A persistent section of the game world exists where players can freely travel and explore the confines of known space. A variety of activities are available to the players - from fending off pirates to trading, discovering new planets, and gathering intel on a new threat to humanity.

High stakes

Unite as a clan and take ownership of different sectors, mine rare types of asteroids, and establish outposts on various planets. Whether it's territory, scarce resources or the respect of others, the pressure is on as players have something of real value to lose.

Faction territories, Houses, colonization, Personal Space Structures, Pirate Bands, wars for territories, exploration, mining, salvaging, leveling and many other features are already in game or will be added soon. MMO mode in Starfall Tactics is constantly growing to become a huge Galaxy you can explore and always find something new. So, in the past few weeks we also continued working on implementing features related to our Galaxy Conquest mode, and today we are ready to tell you about one of the previously announced features:

Faction Progression and rewards

Another thing we would love to add here is a faction progression. Basically, it gives a real goal and a reason to actually participate in wars for territories not just for the fact of dominance, but also to get profits for your fleet and the whole faction you belong to. Faction progression is directly connected with Strategic Resources feature we talked about in June: "A certain level of income of each of the Strategic Resources opens access to some kind of factional equipment or ship."

There are three types of Strategic Resources you can find on planets in Inner Regions (a contested space where you can meet pirates and other rivals):

  • Radioactive metals - higher income levels of this resource make new weapons available for purchase on your home planet.
  • Superconductors - give you access to unique special modules.
  • Noble gases - allow you to get new ship modifications on new income levels.

The higher income level of a resource faction has for the past several hours, the greater things you can acquire: there are 5 income levels in total, each of them gives exclusive rewards you won’t be able to find anywhere else. They are also different for every faction. All these rewards can be purchased on home planets by spending a certain amount of reputation points which you, as a faithful faction member, earned while helping your faction.

For example, Noble gases income levels give you access to the following ships:

  • Lvl.1 - battlecruiser "Glow Reflection", Regent modification
  • Lvl.2 - battlecruiser "Dazzling Spark", Eureka modification
  • Lvl.3 - battleship "Solar Winds", Sunrise modification
  • Lvl.4 - battleship "Aureola", Paragon modification
  • Lvl.5 - dreadnought "Halo", Premier modification

All ship modifications are going to have special skins, so you will surely recognize them:

Each Commander can get unlimited number of each reward, unless he or she runs out of reputation points. These items might be or might not be included into ranked mode - it highly depends on balance issues and current set of equipment available for Ranked Mode.

Vanguard Weapon

We already started preparing all the necessary equipment, and here is a short list of Vanguard weapons, which they can get for higher Radioactive metals income:


  • Lvl.1 "Stingray", Kinetic, size 1x4 - Electromagnetic kinetic weapon, accelerating the projectile to ultra-high speeds along 2 rails. Pierces through ships.
  • Lvl.2 "Large CQC Laser", Energy, size 3x2 - CQC laser modification of bigger size.
  • Lvl.3 "Tornado Rocket Launcher", Kinetic, size 3x2 - Rocket Launcher modification with 8000m range and average rate of fire comparable to Hurricane Rocket Launcher.
  • Lvl.4 "Frag cannon", Kinetic, size 3х3 - Middle range cannon with increased crew damage. Has low firing rate, fires with single shells.
  • Lvl.5 "Volcano", Energy, size 3х2 - Blaster machine gun. Weapon dispersion increases with time, while cooldown - decreases.

Eclipse Weapon

Eclipse faction, as usual, relies on energy weapons - so here is their list of rewards:


  • Lvl.1 "Assault Laser", Energy, size 2x2 - Medium Laser analogue - has less range and more DPS.
  • Lvl.2 "Thunderbolt", Energy, size 1x3 - Plasma Missile Launcher, has 9000 range.
  • Lvl.3 "Lancet", Kinetic, size 1x3 - Small Gauss Cannon analogue.
  • Lvl.4 "Assault Plasma Cannon", Energy, size 2x2 - Plasma Cannon with lower range and decreased cooldown.
  • Lvl.5 "Evaporator", Energy, size 1x4 - Large Heat laser with a very long range.

I think this game is going to be great
I like the comics touch , the graphics are neat and one reason i like it even more is because it has space stations where you can build ships from it like in Star Trek Armada 2 , thing that hasn't been present in space RTS games for quite a while by now

Cannot wait for it and will vote it max once i can

At the moment we don't have any plans concerning mods and modders. It still can happen, but not in the nearest future.

Reply Good karma+2 votes

Don't really care much for the art feature in the images section, but the gameplay looks pretty neat! I'll see how this one turns out in the next few months before committing to anything.

Edit: Wait, it's F2P now? Nevermind, don't care about the game anymore.

Don't worry about F2P state - we don't like pay2win systems ;) To make it more clear - just read this article:
