Really excited to be pushing the particle cannons to stable and to be releasing the first iteration of Adventure Mode and two new planets, as well as the many other new additions and features that you will find detailed below.
Adventure Mode is a back to basics game mode where you have to manually build up a ship or fleet and fend off enemies whilst warping through warp gates, hunting for resource and salvaging your enemies. It's an atmospheric survival style game where everything is done in 1st person (or through the newly revamped wireless camera control system) and there is only one save slot per adventure. It'll be getting more updates as the week goes on to add more warp dimensions of different types.
A new planet has also been added called Glao which features a fun, small and strategic campaign mode. You're a mining corporation fighting for control of a small planet against three other corporations. It's still a work in progress.
Dangerous Waters WWII planet has also been added. It's a community project featuring an Allies vs Axis campaign with replicas of most of the hardware of WWII. It's still very much a work in progress and you're welcome to get involved with this project on the official forums here:
We've also added Particle Cannons which use stored battery energy to fire high energy particles. These are great fun and currently have no direct counters which make them a great investment. We've also added Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generators which cost a lot of crystal to place but produce an infinite (but slow) battery charge capability. Perfect for Adventure Mode.
Wireless cameras when placed on turrets can now control the turret aiming and weapon firing. They also have up to x20 zoom so you can see further than every before. Also perfect for Adventure Mode.

“My jaw almost hit the floor when I installed a few community made vehicle blueprints. The creativity and ingenuity on display was simply incredible [...] there is no doubt that this game is going to be truly epic”
“The game’s physic system is especially impressive. Giant galleons feel like absolute tanks trudging through the ocean, while speedboats slice through the waves at a precarious pace [...] Combat is chaotic and intimately customizable. There is perhaps no greater pleasure than executing a successful broadside”
“From the Depths is a very fine-tuned and detailed strategy title, one that offers amazing cusrtomization options and the opportunity to test out your own creation live on the battlefield. If you're a strategy enthusiast and love vehicle design, this one deserves your attention.”
