StarGem Inc. and Gaijin Entertainment’s epic free to play spaceship combat MMO Star Conflict is getting an exciting new update. The new update will include a new mode called Invasion Mode, which is still in Closed Beta until the end of the summer. If players want to access this new mode, they will need one of the following achievements: Strikeforce Prometheus or Universe Conqueror.
In Invasion Mode, the underlying story is that an alien race has disappeared into another dimension of space and time, and they have come back with a bloody vengeance. They have organized a full-on invasion! It is up to the players of Star Conflict to team up with parties of four to explore the new ‘Open Space’ area and combine forces as they take on new quests and engage in PvP and PvE battles. For your efforts you will gain loot from defeating your adversaries. With this loot, you can pimp out your spaceship, by crafting unique armament and/or protection for your ship.
“The inclusion of Invasion Mode into the virtual world of Star Conflict provides a unique and unpredictable game dynamic that introduces more variables to the player’s space combat experience. Not only do players have to worry about PVP attacks in the free to explore environment but alien ships can suddenly appear close to player’s own ship without warning, forcing them to make the lightning quick decision to flee or fight” Said Stanislav Skorb, Director, Star Gem Inc.
The players who have the achievements will be able to access the new Invasion Mode. For new players who have just started playing, they will have the full summer to garner 1000 points required in order to gain the Universe Conqueror achievement. Alternatively, players can also buy 6000 Galactic Standars to obtain the Strikeforce Prometheus achievement.
The last achievement will be much easier to obtain over the next few days, for players can purchase Star Conflict packs and in-game currency with a discount up to 75% through its online shop and Steam until the end of the month.
