WIP: New ships, co-op matches and hot keys.Subscribe to RSS

July 08, 2016

Hey, get ready to fight in epic battles in a new test which is coming soon -  and don't forget to read this article to get some hot tips and interesting info about upcoming content!

Hot keys


There was a very important thing missing in the game during Galaxy Explorers event - so, we spent some time to implement it in the upcoming test.

Usually, you will use all your active abilities via hotkeys as it allows you to do less annoying clicks and, on average, react faster. And that's what we've just done for you to enjoy playing Starfall Tactics even more!

All active abilities now will have default hot keys. Also, same modules will group into one icon and if you choose several ships, you will see all activatable modules of these ships.

Of course, we will add an ability to create custom bindings in the future - so don't worry so much if you still feel uncomfortable! :)

Co-op matches


Have you ever dreamed of being able to play Starfall Tactics with your friends, clan mates or just wanted to make battles even more intense? With co-op quick matches in PvP and PvE you will have a lot of tactical abilities and tones of fun. 

Now you can battle in 2x2 PvP matches and in co-op matches for 2 players in Survival mode. Just select "Co-op" after choosing a mode in the Play menu to get into a match with a random mate, or create a party with your friend and get into the battle! There are two maps for PvP and one for co-op PvE  at the moment. However, we will add more very soon - there is even a chance to see some during upcoming test!

All goals you have in PvP Skirmish will stay the same - you will need to destroy enemy Motherships - two of them in this case - in order to win. Control point in the middle will give you more warp points, each control point will give resources to both players.

Note that Control points from now on will require more warp points to upgrade - 1000 instead of 500 previously. This was done in order to make it more valuable for you and don't allow to upgrade it to a powerful Battle Station right in front of small enemy ships in the beginning of the game which looks a little bit unfair.

New Ships


Today we have three new ships for you at a time! Be ready to see them very soon while playing Starfall Tactics - you will definitely love them blowing away enemy ship... or your own fleets.

The first one, Vanguard battlecruiser Curtana, shall always welcome ones who love fast and maneuverable medium spaceships - just look at its great engine system - it can't be slow! This also will be the first ship with top and bottom weapon bays.

Aaand here is Paragon - an Eclipse battleship! This is the third ship of this class in the game and it's definitely going to make a competition with Ichaival and Bishop, which showed themselves as really good choice for many fleets.

The third ship, Medea, is the one to trick you with the engine system. Yes, those bigger things are on the frontal part of the ship and they look like a place for huge weapons. There was a suggestion to give this ship only a Spear of Wrath without anything else, but as that would be too overpowering, we'll think of another hull for it.

Check your inbox and our news section on Monday - there will be great news for you! ;)
