Beta 12 is out now! Many of you have been requesting more ships, so we decided to add a new one to the collection for this update! It’s a Colonial Union research vessel called the Outrider. It is a highly maneuverable, compact vessel that includes a research material harvesting lab.
It is also the only ship so far to start with a handful of research components, which means crews who start on an Outrider can dive into research projects faster than if they started on other ships.
Tracker missiles have been rebalanced to be more effective in combat. Enemy ships will now use them more aggressively, so be careful!
A number of new planets and missions, as well as a new raptor-like creature, are included in Beta 12.
We are also participating in the Winter Sale!
