  • Added a fix for missiles sometimes not being taken down by point defense.
  • Added a fix for Basilisk and Infiltrator AOE attacks that rely on target status effects not dealing damage properly under certain circumstances.
  • Fixed the Furion's Ion Flamer not always dealing damage.
  • Added a fix for homing projectiles of any variety not dealing damage to armor properly, these changes also fix the TDS weapons not breaking armor.

Episode II: The Rift - 9th July 2018



Episode II: The Rift

Newton Siddis, a scientist specializing in Ark'ain technology has sent a distress signal from The Rift. A remote sector on the edge of charted space.

Mercenary Captains arrive, seeking to assist the scientist and learn more about the Ark'ain. Once they enter the sector a bargain is struck.

Siddis commands the repair of his vessel, along with the destruction of an opposing Destroyer within the sector.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Rift is a new tactical single sector 5v5 PvE/PvP game mode, where teams must focus on gathering resources to repair a distressed Flagship while attempting to destroy the enemies.

Players can repair their Flagship by salvaging wrecks and returning to their damaged Flagship to deliver the materials. Once repaired, your ally is the most powerful vessel in the sector by far and must be escorted to its enemy counterpart to kill it. Defending your Flagship is also vital since its destruction will result in your team losing the match.

Be careful! Materials you've collected out in The Rift can be taken from the husk of your own dead ship by the enemy team.

Voting in Drafting



Players will be able to vote for the game mode they want to play in the PvP queue. In the case of Conquest, for example, the possible selections are Action Conquest or Discovery.

Each player will vote for a game mode and the game mode with the most votes will be selected. If two game modes have the same number of votes, drafting will select one of the most voted randomly.

Queue Credits


  • When a player begins searching for a game in a PvP or PvE lobby, they will start to earn Credits. Credits will be deposited into the players wallet once they have reached the Results Screen for the match they find during queuing.
  • Players will receive 12 Credits a second whilst matchmaking up to 5 minutes

General Changes
  • The font for the game has been updated from Aero Matics to Noto Sans. The reason for this was that Aero Matics doesn't support Cyrillic and Chinese characters. In a future release we will be implementing Russian and Chinese localization, so we've had to update our fonts. Any feedback is welcome for this change.
  • We have removed the stats text from skills loadouts in drafting as we have realized that we're trying to squeeze too much text into the size of the boxes. A title has been added above the skills to let players know that they can still hover over the skills to get the information they need.
AI Balance
Adjusted the rate at which the difficulty of AI captains ramps up for new players; it now levels up in difficulty on average after every win rather than every two wins.

Bug Fixes
  • Potentially fixed a timing issue in Drafting where images would not load before Drafting was ready.
  • Fixed the Ghost being able to place its decoy inside terrain in the Discovery map.
  • Fix for forward station capture getting stuck if Gamma 3 is taken while an enemy is re-capturing their forward station.
  • Fixed the bug that was wrongly displaying Y and N as the keys to surrender when different keys are bound.
  • Fix for the bug that was causing server crashes if the user in Last Stand selected the same ship.
  • Fix for the bug that was causing new installs of the game to reprompt the drafting tutorial, even after the completion of a solo match.

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.
