Get Ready to Play: Open Crafting Test starts 9th August!Subscribe to RSS

August 02, 2018

Commanders,

We are back here after a short break with a great surprise for all who wanted to continue exploring the Galaxy or try out the game before its release: Open Crafting Test starts 9th August 12:00 CET and ends 19th August 23:59 CET!

That's the second OPEN test - no keys required:

Just register on our website or simply download the game if you already have an account.

It's been a while since the previous, New Frontiers test, and we planned to make a really long break to get the game ready for the next big stage. But both because you asked us about another test many times, and considering that the great Crafting System Update needs your feedback and help in a breathtaking bug-hunting process, it was decided to make a short test featuring a lot of cool changes. Join the battle and be the first who will try out the 100-level system, Faction and Fleet abilities, complete new tasks, craft modules and reach the center of renewed Galaxy!

See you soon in Starfall Online!

Remember that the game is not available for x32 systems during tests, is not yet well-optimized and is far from the released version. In case of any troubles - use #help & #bugreport Discord channel, create a topic on the forum or send a letter to support@snowforged.com!

New name for the Starfall Tactics - Starfall Online


And, along with this announcement, we have another important thing to tell you about: Starfall Tactics has just changed its name to Starfall Online!

When we started developing the game, it was not intended to become a game with persistent Galaxy - we concentrated on a session-based gameplay and tactical battles, so we called it "Starfall Tactics". But later it appeared that our small independent Team is able to create a really fun MMO mode for the game like this, keeping all the great stuff we've made for battles. And as the game development continues, MMO mode grows, gets more and more content, becoming one the biggest and important parts of the game. Finally, we found out that the current name can confuse new players and doesn't correctly reflects what the game is now correctly.

That's why Snowforged Team made a great change and a great step forward, giving it a new name: Starfall Online. Hope you will love this new name just as old one and support us on this important step to the bright future!

Let's remember this day and welcome a new name - Starfall Online!

What's new in the game?


After New Frontiers Test, there were 4 months of intense development - many changes have been done, many things implemented, many (but not all;) troubles fixed - here is a short list of features to check during The Crafting Open Test:

  • Great Crafting System Update which includes new resources, disassembling, new recipes and etc - read more information about it in the next WIP article!
  • Extended Character Progression system, including 100 levels instead of 30!
  • New Quest Types
  • New NPC faction - Traders
  • New Detachments
  • Reworked System of Warp Anomalies (Now - Vortexes)
  • Strike Back System for pirates
  • Sufficient changes to star systems, galaxy maps, and ship editing
  • Autopilot and pathfinding in star systems
  • Shields Rework
  • New Faction Abilities
  • New Modules
  • Visual improvements: New planets, backgrounds, interfaces and more!

And that's just the tip of the iceberg - full patch notes will be available next week.

 

Warning: Work in Progress


Please, be kind to us if experiencing any problems with the game while evaluating Starfall Tactics - it's a rough version created for testing purposes and there is a lot of content we are still working hard on. We will really appreciate you sending us bug reports and submitting any feedback by email to support@snowforged.com, via a contact form or writing about it in a special forum. We will work on fixing any issues once this test phase ends and are going to add more content before the next test, early access and, especially, full release.
