A new alpha version of the upcoming “open-world single-player space-combat, roleplaying, exploration and economic game”, Starfarer, has been released (to people who pre-order the game for $10, which you totally should do)! This new alpha — the first in a while — adds a slew of new features, including:
- New fleet command scheme, as discussed here
- Fleet command tutorial to show you the ropes
- The Codex interface, packed with useful information about the ships, fighters, and weapons. Includes lore for most of the weapons and a few of the ships
Pretty cool stuff, huh? I’ve been meaning to give Starfarer a preview look for a while now, and this new version gives me the perfect excuse, so stay tuned for a preview look soon. Click here to read the blog in its entirety.
