Nyooom!

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.

Some of you might be wondering why a mysterious game has appeared in your Steam libraries. Wonder no more...

As an owner of Strike Suit Zero, you have free access to Fractured Space - the new game from the team behind SSZ - for 24 hours.

The assumption is you like space, and you like spaceships. If that's the case, Fractured Space should be right up your street...

Fractured Space is team-based space combat fought in gigantic capital ships. Each multiplayer match offers intense team battles combining deadly individual fights with larger team strategy. Use your ship's unique abilities and weapons to exploit enemy weakness and control the map by working with your team to obliterate opponents. With the intensity of a shooter and the big-picture-thinking of a strategy game, Fractured Space is at the forefront of an exciting new frontier for the genre.

We hope you enjoy the game, and if you have thoughts, feelings or feedback of any kind - head over to the Fractured Space forums to share them with the team.

Many thanks, and hopefully we'll see you in battle!

Strike Suit Zero harkens back to the golden age of space shooters, when games like Colony Wars Star Wars: Starfighter were more commonplace. Developer Born Ready Games attempted to pay homage to that era with last year's original PC release, however control issues (among other snags) hampered the experience. The developer has managed to patch up a few issues with the Director's Cut of the game, available now for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. However, despite the promise of thrilling space combat and a unique transformation system, it doesn't take long for monotony to set in during this space quest.
Product Release - Valve
Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut is Now Available on Steam!

In the year 2299, an interstellar war rages on. In a bid to save Earth from destruction, you must take control of the Strike Suit – a revolutionary fighter craft with the ability to transform into a lethal suit of space armor. Immerse yourself in massive fleet battles where your dog-fighting skills will directly affect the fate of the cosmos.

As an added bonus Strike Suit Zero - Director's Cut is 85% off to owners of Strike Suit Zero on Steam. Log in to Steam to see your limited time special offer.

The Director's Cut of Strike Suit Zero won't make its planned March release, according to developer Born Ready Games. The mech-based space shooter will need about another week in the oven before arriving on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on April 8 with a $20 price tag.

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.
