About This Game

Miner Wars 2081 is a 6DOF action-survival space-shooter simulation-game set in the year 2081, 10 years after the destruction of all planetary objects in the Solar System.


You operate an advanced mining ship in a fully destructible and open-world environment, which remains persistent as you complete missions or play online with others. Realism and survival are key aspects of gameplay. Inventory and the way you use resources such as fuel, ammunition, oxygen, ore, and weapons are important when surrounded by dozens of warring factions.


The gameplay is driven by an epic story and offers a choice of single player, co-op, and death-match multi-player.


The story will introduce you to many types of missions: rescue, exploration, revenge, base defense, theft, transportation, stealth, search and destroy, pure harvesting, racing, or just flying around and destroying everything you see.

Keen Software House Only cares about Early access sales, after that, they work on the next game. This game is still EA, but "fully released". Supported them a bunch and regret it. I refuse to by any products from Keen Software House now.

Can't say I reccomend it. I expected a lot more from it, it doesn't use the environment or the terrain. It could have been easily just levels that you load. There's no incentive to exploring the world around you.

Bunch of scumbags lied about what I purchased and never provided the second game that I also purchased with it; the Miner Wars MMO.

No refunds. No compensation. Just a notification that they'd since moved onto other games; Space Engineers and more recently medieval engineers. Not even a free copy of either games as an apology for abandoning this one. Oh no, instead I had to buy Space Engineers myself.

And had I looked at the developer of Space Engineers before buying it, I wouldn't have bought it either.
