Take command of your starship, join a faction, and explore a procedurally-generated universe
Explore a Procedurally-Generated Universe, Mine Asteroids & Fight Off Alien Invaders in VoidExpanse
Launching today on Steam for Mac, PC and Linux
SINGAPORE — April 2, 2015 — Introducing VoidExpanse, a new space exploration RPG that mixes a top-down, arcade-style perspective with dynamic content, an advanced 3D engine, and enough depth of play to rival most space-faring games. Now available on Steam for the promotional price of $13.49, VoidExpanse puts you at the heart of an interstellar civilization facing an alien invasion — giving you the freedom to chart your very own path through the stars.
As a young adventurer who barely manages to avoid life as a farmer, you are called upon to unite the galaxy under one banner to thwart an alien invasion. However, in order to achieve this objective, you must first align yourself with one of three warring factions (Order, Freedom, or Fanatics), accept their values, and help them achieve their goals. Living the life of an adventurer won’t be easy: You will need to complete a number of quests and grow in power to strengthen your faction.
Take the helm of your starship as you fight enemies, mine asteroids, trade with space stations, and complete missions to upgrade your ship and your character’s abilities. Explore a massive procedurally-generated universe and meet characters who can influence each faction and the game world as a whole.
In addition to the single-player campaign, VoidExpanse also features a multiplayer mode with fully persistent worlds — turning each server into a mini MMO. Players can create their own galaxies through custom mods or play on existing servers created by the community.
“With VoidExpanse, we wanted to blend the unique gameplay, excitement, and feel of old-school classics with a new game engine and modern gameplay mechanics,” says Valentin Gukov, managing director of AtomicTorch Studio. “The player is both independent and at the same time tied to the world – a living universe with factions, agendas, memories, and storylines large and small. VoidExpanse provides a spectrum of possible careers, skill development, and in-game choices that can greatly impact each playthrough.”
