What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Being our first commercial game ever made, we at Drakeling Labs want to take the time we need to get things right. Getting to know our players, exploring new gameplay ideas with our community, and building Iron Armada with the fans who love our game is what makes Early Access so important to us. We want this to be the first step of something amazing, and that takes starting small.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We have no specific timeframe on when Iron Armada will be completed. Our roadmaps are mapped to content milestones, not timelines. We don't like making promises before our work is done, and we don't like rushing to deadlines... so please consider waiting to purchase the game if you do not enjoy the current version.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Our current goal is to build Iron Armada into a solid competitive multiplayer game, with a variety of maps, gamemodes, and most importantly... community support (such as modifications.) We enjoy spending considerable time with our community day-dreaming and prototyping new ideas and features... however we refrain from promising anything we are not entirely certain we can accomplish.

Our immediate plans for the game include competitive "fleet" warfare, with a minimum of 16 (or 8 vs 8) players, fighting in large scale environments, over round based objectives.

Possible future versions of Iron Armada could include open exploration, large scale multiplayer, rogue-like multiplayer campaigns, and single-player modes. However these features are only speculative... and will require considerable amounts of time and resources before we are confident we can include them.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of Iron Armada allows for competitive multiplayer gameplay (on dedicated servers) with our standard "conquest" competitive gamemode.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Currently our supporters can purchase the "Pioneer's Edition" of Iron Armada, which gives access to the alpha version of the game... all the way up to the full release. Future versions of Iron Armada may include different packages (including standard and free versions) that will be priced differently upon release! The details for these packages are still "to be determined" but will be announced as development progresses... and before Iron Armada leaves early access!”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Integrating our community into Iron Armada's development is the sole purpose for our early access release. We intend to open our source-code repository to our community developers, as well as incorporating feature suggestions and ideas from our forums into the development of the game.”

About This Game

Iron Armada is a multiplayer, team-based, multi-crew, ship-to-ship action game. Harvest resources while defending your team's mothership. Construct frigates, fighters, and stations to fight against hostile forces. Play as a key part of your team, board enemy cruisers, kill their crew, and commandeer enemy craft. Wage all out war until your faction emerges victorious. With multiple ways to play, no two rounds are ever the same.

Mine asteroids

Construct new ships using the resources your team mines from asteroids, salvages from wrecks, or captures from planets. Your scrap can be used to construct fighters, frigates, destroyers, or even larger ships for your team.

Board enemy ships

Hunt down, assault, and board enemy vessels crewed by other players. Capture their ship and refit for your own armada, or salvage their wreckage to augment your own craft. Target ship sub-systems to paralyze critical ship components. Immobilize or cripple enemy cruisers prior to boarding, to maximize potential salvage.

Construct massive cruisers

Build giant vessels, fully crewed by your friends. Construct manned turrets, rail guns, crew medical bays, ore refineries, and all other critical ship systems. Build fighters to support your cruisers, or frigates to ferry your mining crews. Assemble your armada, rally your forces, and lead your team to victory.

About us

Iron Armada's influences include games such as Faster Than Light, Battlevoid, Starsector, and Space Engineers. Iron Armada is an unofficial spiritual successor to the Shiprekt modification for King Arthur's Gold, which we take great inspiration from. Developers of the Shiprekt modification are currently a part of the Iron Armada team.

We are always looking for more contributors and developers to the Iron Armada project, so if you are interested in joining our team... please contact us! We are always looking for talented programmers, artists, and designers to help expand the Iron Armada universe. Iron Armada is a community developed game, and is dependent on our talented community developers!

We hope you enjoy our game, and please feel free to ask any questions on our Steam community forums! The game is constantly under development, so new features, changes, and expansions are regularly released!
