Starborne Open Beta kicks off next month

Platforms: PC

Solid Clouds have announced that Starborne, their epic science fiction strategy MMO is set to kick off open beta testing on 2nd April. Check out the announcement trailer above.

With over five years of empire building, political intrigue and galactic warfare under its belt, Starborne is about to enter the next exciting stage of its development cycle including a brand new game map based on the lessons learnt from past Alphas, as well as dedicated safer starting zones and higher resource yielding areas that will incentivise expansion and make the game more dynamic.

For the first time ever, there will be three unique ways to win a game of Starborne; Military conquest deep in the galaxy, industrial superiority, or domain by controlling the most amount of space. Additionally a core focus has been put on making the game more robust and new player friendly.

Speaking about the Open Beta launch, Stefán Gunnarsson, co-founder and CEO of Solid Clouds said, “I’m so proud of the new map design. It really manages to condense all the lessons we’ve learned over the past 5 years. With it, we are both catering to more play styles and also able to supercharge the deeply player-driven political side of the game.“

The key features and additions being introduced for the Starborne Open Beta:

  • A new map with zones that encourage expansion and empire building
  • Three distinct victory conditions catering to different play style – Military, Industrial and Domain
  • Improved game performance and stability
  • Improved game pace and increase to a 10 week game round
  • Alliance size reduced to 15
  • For the very first time, an in-game Tutorial
  • An android Companion App preview
  • Mysterious alien artefacts, vortexes and broken planets are now on the frontier
  • Badges to commemorate your progress and your achievements on the frontier
  • Brand new Empire Skins and Map Pins make the map come alive
