With your continued support, we look forward to releasing more content, starting in the end of March with the completion of the co-op mode, new variants to Necron ships, and a brand new Necron ship that will breathe terror into even the most battle-hardened admiral.

In April, we will release our Competitive System, allowing all you admirals to compete for the glory of being the best, as well as other rewards. Keep an eye out for more details to come!

Next will be our new game mode with truly gigantic fleets, including the Titan ships, for unbridled chaos. And finally, our new Grand Campaign will be unveiled.

We can’t wait to share these updates with you, and look forward to releasing even more content beyond the scope of this Roadmap. Please continue to share your suggestions and report technical issues - we carefully read our Steam community hub and official forum. You can also join our Discord to meet fellow players and get the latest news from the team: https://discord.gg/fqpAG2D
