What the developers say:

“Entropy is a sandbox science fiction MMOG with a strong focus on freeform gameplay and large-scale space combat, and is available right now for Windows, Mac, and Linux. Set in a true open-world sandbox, Entropy is an ambitious entry into the era of community-driven projects, where players will help decide the game’s development direction, helping to build the definitive sci-fi MMO experience.

The Early Access release of Entropy sees us launch with a strong foundation of features, including incredible multiplayer space combat, where each instance can hold more than a hundred simultaneous players all battling for supremacy, and a player-driven trading system, where both trading stations and players will determine the state of the economy. Add to this, mining, salvaging and exploration (of over a hundred explorable systems), as well as a developing dynamic mission system, and you have a game with scale, ambition, and the desire to build a community who wish to develop the best experience possible.

We’ll be releasing updates approximately every week, with a major update being delivered roughly every month. As an Alpha build, there will be some bugs, and features that are being fleshed out further or are yet to be included, so bear that in mind. However, we want our community to be vocal, creative and passionate, so please get involved in the discussion on the Entropy Steam Community pages and help us create the definitive MMO experience.”

FEATURE UPDATE #1: HOSTILE TAKEOVER

April 1st, 2014

Welcome to Entropy's first Major Feature Update! Hostile Takeover introduces the faction conflict system, allowing Pilots who have taken a contract with one of the 'Big Three' megacorporation’s to struggle for control of the Confederation's Frontier star systems.

HIGHLIGHTS
  • Tension and Stability - corporate players can destabilise Frontier systems administered by rivals and maintain control of their corporation's systems
  • Crises - destabilising a Frontier system triggers a Crisis, during which the system's Station is vulnerable to attack
  • New Frontier Stations - revised and expanded Stations that serve as the focus for control of Frontier systems in crisis

Pilots can now for the first time participate in faction PvP warfare events which truly matter within the universe. Members of the ‘Big Three’ megacorporation’s can now participate in actions within the frontier systems in-order to de-stabilise the frontier systems and send them into Crisis.

Once a frontier system has entered Crisis, Pilots can engage in player versus player combat within that system. If the attacking megacorporation is to succeed, it must cripple that systems station by disabling the station core before the Crisis ends. Members of the opposing megacorps can increase and decrease the duration of crisis by defeating players of the opposing megacorp anywhere in the system except the station sector.

Stations are protected by several turrets and weapon platforms consisting of several turrets protected by a central shield generator. In addition to this Stations also have various emplacements which provide their defences with passive bonuses, disabling these weaken the Station’s defences.

We would like to invite all Early Access players to provide us with feedback with regard to this update, with a focus on your opinions on how fund you find the tension system, Crisis, and the Faction Conflict system overall.
We plan to refine the system over the next few weeks and months with your feedback taken as a key consideration!

You can view the full patch notes, discuss, and provide your feedback in the Faction Conflict Discussion Thread.

About the Game

Entropy is an open-universe science fiction MMO with a strong focus on freeform gameplay and large-scale space combat. Explore a hostile galaxy filled with over a hundred solar systems, each completely explorable, where you can hunt, trade, mine and salvage in order to survive. In Entropy, you can play the way you want, and take part in shaping a universe where you, the players, are in control.

Key features

  • Massively multiplayer Space Combat
    Entropy finally delivers a true dogfighting experience in an MMO environment. Experience the thrill of skill-based combat set against a massively multiplayer arena, where up to a hundred simultaneous players per instance can fight for supremacy.

  • Dynamic Trade
    Economics is the engine that drives the universe of Entropy, and a good knowledge of supply and demand can make you a fortune. Whether you play the market and trade between different stations, transporting goods across star systems crawling with pirates, mine rich asteroids or loot ancient relics, there are many routes to riches.

  • Customisation
    A deep character development system allows you to customize yours skills and ship modules to be the best possible pilot in the role that you want to play. Offensive, defensive and passive abilities allow you to customise your approach to combat and survival. Add to this a deep avatar creator with infinite variations, and you have a game intent on making each player unique and specialised.

  • Exploration
    Entropy already has 120 explorable star systems that can be interacted with on three different gameplay levels. The Galaxy map allows you to plot routes across the galaxy, through safe or hostile territory. The System map is where you travel between locations, hunt down players with valuable loot, and discover Sectors containing rich mining fields and ancient derelicts. These Sectors are the 3D levels in which the action will take place. Many sectors are permanent features of a system, but there are also dynamic Sectors that will only appear through persistent exploration.

    Entropy is a true MMO - not just an arena shooter or a single-player game with added online functionality. You can interact with thousands of other players - some friendly, many hostile. Your actions will shape and influence the persistent universe.

First of all this game is in a early stage. There are issues and bugs so before you even consider buying it you need to ask yourself if you're patient enough to help an upcoming MMO shape into you want it to be. If you do not have the ability to be able to figure how the game works on your own and deal with problems then I would say your best bet is to move along.

The game is a great concept with lots of potential in my eyes. The graphics are nice and even though there weren't a lot of character creation options (hopefully a lot more will be added) I still made a character that I was happy with. When I first logged in everything was pretty much easy to figure out. Once I got to the station after following my quest line I came across an issue with being unable to find an item to complete my quest.

Once I was able to continue with my mission progress I received another quest asking me to go to an Unknown Sector - I am now unsure of what to do. I leave the station and port out onto the map and there is no direction telling me where to go. I tried exploring on my own but was killed several times. I plan to try again today and figure out where I need to go.

As for combat it's very smooth and fluid and the only thing I don't really like is having to hit "alt" for free mouse movement, which normally but be fine, but it puts your ship in a bit of a freeze frame yet still moving though space. If you could just keep your camera the same and use free mouse that would be great!

Overall I see myself sticking around to help the progression of the game. The devs seem really nice as I have spoken to them and just really friendly people who really want to make a great game that is community focused.

**Update**

I never figured out the mission I was working on and instead I abanonded it thinking it was bugged (it was) then later found out that there is no way to pick up a dropped mission (it was told to me a fix will be implemented to pick abanonded missions back up.)

I decided to try going back to the first station you come across and when I did the mission board was full of missions and the encounters were a lot easier and "green" to me. Only issue I find now is I don't get credit for the missions.

So figured I would toss in a quick update on my review to let everyone know a little expoloring and things can be figured out without tool tips or a guide. However, I do really hope to see a lot more explantion in mission logs and tool tips.

This game does have a lot of potential but it's just way too early to buy now. I can't seem to complete any missions beyond the tutorial. I get pirate kill missions and don't get credit for any of the kills. I did "find thief" missions and no one could find where sectors 1 - 5 were. All the space traveling is done in a 2d birds eye view, which I am not a fan of. This game is extremely instanced and each instance is very small. I hit loading screens every 3-4 minutes on average. I tried using my saitek x52 pro and there seems to be no joystick support. I think this game may be fun in the future but at this time I feel like I purchased this game thinking it was something else than it is.

First thing is first. This is early access, so there's going to be a lot of bugs and features that just simply aren't created yet.

With that said, this game popped up out of nowhere and is a pleasant surprise. Imagine if Freelancer & EVE Online had a kid. In fact, my first impressions of Entropy feels like an open world Star Conflict with mining & trading.

There are a lot of quirks with the combat, system travel, trading, etc. and it will take a bit to get used to. For instance:

There is a lot you have to figure out for yourself. You simply can't right click on an object and get info for it right now. Flying around sectors needs an overhaul. I see what they are trying to do, but moving around on a 2D plane just takes me out of the game - but thats how you get to places. Everything takes place in little zones and you can't exactly explore to your hearts content, as you are unable to go outside of the "grid". There are tons upon tons of loading screens. Everything you do = loading screen. They just released a patch that has made loading significantly faster, but I wish that there was less 2D traveling/cutscenes and more space.

All in all, Entropy is a nice little surprise before Christmas. I recommend it to anyone who, like me, got a big Egoshaft up their *** from X Rebirth. It's simply a whole lot more fun, surprisingly polished for Early Access, and takes the edge off of waiting for Star Citizen and Elite Dangerous.

Been playing for about 4 hours now. And while this game reminds me a lot of battlestar galactica online it does have its improvements. That being said, this is an Alpha build and it shows. It has a lot of bugs (as expected) and i myself at the moment cannot play the game due to a bug that keeps me from even logging in.

The game has a lot of potential, it just needs to get rid of the bugs and have a bit clearer way of finding information in the game. As an example, i've just finnished the first quest and am now trying to mine minerals (which was quite straight forward to find). But i cannot for the life of me find a processing plant. Or any information about one.

I know its in Alpha stage so a lot of the fanboys and devs are saying its alpha dont complain. Please don't get fooled like a lot of us did. There is nothing to do no pvp no free flight through space you fly on a 2d map for 80% of the time yer playing, 10% of yer time on a space station with no missions and the other 10% flying around either mining rocks or dropping of cargo. So if you want to be confused and bored out of yer mind then by all means give them some of your money. The color orange is overused too imo. You would be better off playing Star Conflict or Eve or anything for that matter. Im not trying to be mean im just being honest.
