The three coolest things to pilot in space battles are, in no particular order: mecha; capital ships; and EVE Online’s Rifter. Edge Case Games was formed by folks behind Strike Suit Zero so they’ve dabbled with the first, and that third is off-limits, so here they are with capital ships in Fractured Space, the first game from their new studio. It’s a five-versus-five multiplayer capital ship throwdown with classes, customisation, and many explosions. Fractured Space warped onto Steam Early Access yesterday at the price of 6.99 and… oh, it’ll turn free-to-play at launch. Bit of an enthusiasm-dampener, that.
Strike Suit Zero, to use a perfect term, is my jam. Sci-fi? Check. Space Transformers? Check. Almost comical disregard for the sanctity of life and natural resources? Check. It’s bombastic, beautiful insanity that, to my eternal anger, proved rather unplayable on my aging hulk of a machine. Nathan proved measurably harder to impress a year ago, which may in part by why things have ended up here: a special edition of the game, initially for console release but eventually spreading out into our sector. It’s designed to fix many of the issues players and critics alike had with the campaign, as well as include DLC at no extra cost. Morph this post to its heavier form for a look at the trailer and details.
