Basic Information

DarkSpace is a sci-fi massively multiplayer online game set in the time of space travel and interstellar warfare. The universe has become a tumultuous place in a future of political infighting, economic sanctions and diplomatic posturing. Players can choose to join one of three factions - two human groups at war with one another, or a mysterious alien entity that is aggressively expanding into the galaxy. There are also computer-controlled factions; nearly all are highly hostile toward one another, and only a few outposts remain neutral, at least initially, waiting to see where to best place their allegiance.

About the Game

In the online universe of DarkSpace, hundreds of players come together to forge alliances in a pulse-pounding struggle for mankind's destiny. Mission goals will vary from pilot to pilot and completed objectives will bring favor to the pilot's faction. The fate of the galaxy relies on your coordination with your team. In such an unpredictable universe, objectives will be obtained and rival borders will be pushed back only with teamwork on a massive scale.

Players will need to choose their ships wisely, as each ship type fulfills its own versatile and vital role within the faction. A scout will reveal enemy positions as it lifts the fog of war, while combat-equipped heavy cruisers tear into the enemy forces with relentless speed and force. Planetary invasions are carried out with high-capacity infantry transports, and subsequent security is insured by engineering ships that rebuild and stabilize the planetary infrastructure.

With all of its influential forces acting as one, the universe of DarkSpace continues to evolve. In the opening moments of gameplay, the dominant factions are human with a mysterious and advanced alien species silently closing in from the galactic rim. In the meantime, neutral and radical bodies with agendas of their own will force players to deal with the circumstances they create within their own borders.

DarkSpace is now free-to-play, but players can purchase credits which will allow them to purchase enhancements that will improve the tactical and combat capabilities of their ships. Supporters can subscribe to the game, however, with regular monthly payments that help cover the cost of maintaining the game servers.
