In the preview you fly a single spaceship. Your mission is to hunt down all drones. Play by yourself or together with a friend on the same computer. The drones will not shoot at you, but they are fast and agile and hard to hit. Watch out for asteroids flying around, they can damage your ship. If you are in a tight spot, you can try to jump to safety, but you could also find yourself jumping straight into an asteroid. So jump at your own risk! If you want to test your combat skills you can challenge a friend to a one-on-one fight for glory.
