The reapers have returned from dark space. With Earth under attack and the mass relays in a state of chaos from refugees and the councils fleet engaging reaper forces the galaxy is a mess. The outcome is unknown, the warfare is devastating. The galaxy will never be the same.
So its been a while since an update but its time I give you guys one. You guys are are probably looking forward to a release just as much as we are looking forward to passing this on to you. We have news on that front, and this is where things get good for you guys. We will be having an "Open" beta, what we are currently calling Defiance.
Now due to the massive amount of work that goes into the Reaper faction we have decided to pass along Cerberus and Council onto you guys upon completion. This release will be solely Cerberus and Citadel Council, and will be first release of the mod to the general public. This release will not be complete but it will be an open beta for the purpose of balancing. After out first release we will be begin dedicated work on the Reapers, balancing, code and such. Due to the probability that the Reapers will take much more time to complete we don't want to hold back you guys from having fun while we continue work.
Dawn of the Reapers: Invasion
After the completion of the Reaper faction we will release as the second part of the open beta called Invasion, for obvious reasons. Again with the massive amount of work we are going to have to put into balancing the Reapers we will be using this open time as a debug stage. We will address any errors or problems that arise as they come. So that when the whole release comes we will not be overcome with a massive amount of problems. Now as of right now we remain in closed alpha and we will engage in closed beta before entering our open beta phase. This may take a fair amount of time, so please be patient we are attempting to get as much work done as possible but you folks also need to realize that we are doing this for free, with our own time. Life > Hobbies, we all have responsibilities and sometimes we have to prioritize so please we ask that you stay patient.
Now due to the onset of life, i cannot promise any one release day for either right now but rest assured we have resumed work and updates will proceed shortly.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Dawn of the Reapers. We love games like Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
