Episode III: Catalyst - Update - 6th August 2018



Catalyst

As it turned out, the distress call located in The Rift was nothing but a well-devised recruitment ploy, organized by Newton Siddis himself. He was never in any real danger, but was in fact, sat in a nearby cargo ship containing the very reason he came to The Rift - a shard of an Ark’ain Artefact.

All that’s required now is to escort Siddis and his Payload to his Research Facility, located in Sigyn’s Breath; trouble is, a few factions have caught wind of his findings, some of which will do anything to stop his experiments on such a volatile substance…




Focus the Payload and secure the victory in Catalyst. Work as a team to escort the rigged Artefact to the enemy base in this new single sector mode. Kaboom!

Be sure to keep control of the two Mining Facilities located in Sigyn’s Breath to ensure that you and your Team have the upper hand over your opponents in levels while also trying to push the Payload as far away from your base as possible.

You only have fifteen minutes to escort the Artefact as far as possible, if at the end of the time no one has successfully delivered the package, the team who has pushed the Artefact further will be declared the winners.

Emotes



Chat wheel commands in Fractured Space now have the ability to beam a holographic emote above your ship in-game.

All players will have access to the ‘Affirmative’ emote for free. Select Affirmative on the chat wheel, and the emote hologram will appear in-game for your team to see.

Each command on the chat wheel has a corresponding emote – emotes can be unlocked via purchasing them individually in the store for 200 platinum, or as part of an emote bundle. The Starter Emote Bundle available in the store nets you all seven emotes at a 40% saving against buying them individually.

An exclusive Catalyst ‘Push Payload’ emote is also available to earn for free in the Catalyst Episode Rewards.

Coming in a future update, you will have the ability to add and unlock custom emotes not tied to commands on the chat wheel.

Owned Emotes can be viewed in the Profile page, under the Emote heading.

Russian/Simplified Chinese Support

The game has been translated in Chinese and Russian, along with the already released English and German.

The languages can be selected from the launcher - right above the launch button or in the launcher settings.

Episode Rewards



Get playing the Catalyst game mode and pushing that payload, and you can earn yourself some exclusive rewards:
  • 125,000 meters pushed – ‘Focus Payload’ Emote
  • 500,000 meters pushed – Exclusive Galactic Express Badge and Nameplate

About This Game

Take the helm of a gigantic capital ship and get ready for battle. Monthly Episodes give you new maps and ways to fight - or fend off increasingly difficult waves of AI in Last Stand, or play 5-v-5 PvE or PvP in Conquest – the high intensity moments of a shooter combine with careful team tactics and positioning as you battle across a multi-sector map.



In 2684, AI controlled capital ships are destroying human settlements in a 50-light year radius from Pr0venance. In the Salomon’s Rift system, your ship is one of three forming the thin line of defense between them and a host of civilian refugees. How many can you save?



Fractured Space puts you in control of an immense capital ship, and there are dozens to unlock and select. Each ship has its own strengths and weakness, and a carefully selected crew can make all the difference in battle. Battle is what it’s all about – whether you fight in 5-v-5 Conquest against other players or take on increasing difficult waves of AI in Last Stand, your tactics will be put to the test.



Jump into a growing, active, friendly community. Fractured Space is free to play, and we put gameplay first. We keep things fair by making sure you can’t pay to win, and you will need to work to develop your own skills and play as a team to do well. Regular monthly enhancements to the game keep things fresh, and you can keep up to date on our website, in Discord or on the forums. We are also active on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
