Fractured Space enters Steam Early Access
Today Edge Case Games, a new British game studio formed from the team behind Strike Suit Zero, has launched a new space battle game. This online game, called Fractured Space, is currently available on Steam Early Access.
Fractured Space puts you at the helm of gigantic capital ships as you engage in online, team-based space battles. The game promises to be a bold new vision in tactical space combat, but will it live up to that promise?
Players interested in the game can purchase either the Forerunner or Forerunner Fleet packs. The former, priced at 14.99 GBP, provides four game keys for you to share with friends and thus form your very own tactical space combat team. respectively. There will also be Founder Packs in the future that will include a range of perks, such as exclusive ships, crew, boosters, and ranks.
“Our open development journey for Fractured Space started with our first playable build and it’s exciting to welcome new players into the game as we launch on Steam Early Access,” said James Brooksby, CEO of Edge Case Games . “Every player can participate in exciting tactical space battles while also getting a chance to become new contributors to Fractured Space’s ongoing development.”
He went on to add, “We have huge ambition for what Fractured Space can become and bringing it to Early Access is the next stage of our journey. Even at this early stage we feel the quality of our vision shines through. The team, hand in hand with the community, are building a game that takes space combat in a completely new and exciting direction.”
The team at Edge Case has also been quite vocal in committing to an open development ethic for Fractured Space. They have regularly held private playtest sessions and even shared sprint plans, prototypes, concept art, and capital ship renders with the ever-growing community.
Fractured Space is powered by the Unreal Engine 4 and is currently scheduled to be released in full in 2015.
