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 5000 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 out to become the uncontested winner.

As the game progresses, you will be able to define your role via an extensive skill tree: Command fleets on the frontlines, sabotage enemies through covert operations or become the industrial backbone of your alliance - each specialization comes with its own unique abilities and gameplay benefits.

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 exploit.

While Starborne is still in the early stages of development, we're having regular test games to gather feedback from the community. Download the installer and join today!

After five years of development and countless alpha tests, we're proud to finally announce the Open Beta for Starborne which starts today on April 2nd. Join us on the frontier today at 15:00 GMT!

The Starborne Open Beta in a Nutshell

  • The map has been completely reworked and now supports three different win conditions
  • A brand new building planner has been added to allow for even more station customization
  • New empire skins allow players to customize how their territory looks on the vast in-game map
  • The game has undergone a complete visual overhaul and has never looked better
  • A plethora of balance changes have ensured that this will be the most competitive game to date

The New Map

The iconic Starborne map has been redesigned from the ground up to allow for more diverse strategies and interesting political developments. There are now three different ways to win the game! In addition, new players will be protected from the ruthless PvP area until they are ready to join the fray.

Visual Update

We've given both the visuals and UI in the game lots of love during the past few months, and we're confident to say that Starborne has never looked better. Several UI improvements have been taken directly from community feedback, and we hope to continue improving the gameplay experience with your help.

The current alpha client only runs on Windows, but we should have a Mac client ready for the next alpha.

This all looked good until I saw that it's got no singleplayer elements. Oh well, good luck I guess.

It's a massively multiplayer strategy game which is designed around playing with and against other players. But thank you.
