Void Bastards patch 1.2.2 is now available on the pre-release Beta. If you want to try out the pre-release Beta, you can find instructions here:

Patch notes:

  • Fixed jiggling on player proximity light in dark ships.

  • Don’t generate fixed tutorial vessels when replaying the campaign after completing it.
  • Care packages will no longer grant parts that aren’t useful due to current campaign weapon restriction mode.

Pre-Release Test Beta Now Available

Hi, we've created a new beta of the game which we will be using for the latest patches before they are released. If you would like to preview what's coming and help us test new builds, please consider switching to this beta using the following process:

  • Navigate to your Steam library.
  • Right click on Void Bastards and select Properties.
  • Select the Betas tab.
  • Enter the super secret beta access code: voidbastards.
  • Push the check code button.
  • Now select prerelease - latest prerelease test build from the drop down menu.
  • When you return to the library, Steam should now automatically download the latest prerelease build (assuming you have the game set to automatically update).

Note that this prelease build is exactly that. It may contain bugs or other errors so you should not install this beta if you are concerned about potentially losing your progress or otherwise experiencing problems with the game.

If you do wish to install this prerelease test beta you will greatly help us if you can report any issues with it in the forums or on our Discord. Please mark any such reports as "prerelease beta" so that we know which build of the game you are reporting on. You can also check the build version by opening the game console with Alt ~ and typing version.

Thanks for your help!

About This Game

Forget everything you know about first-person shooters: Void Bastards asks you to take charge, not just point your gun and fire. Your task is to lead the rag-tag Void Bastards out of the Sargasso Nebula. You make the decisions: where to go, what to do and who to fight. And then you must carry out that strategy in the face of strange and terrible enemies.

On board derelict spaceships you’ll plan your mission, taking note of the ship layout, what hazards and enemies you might encounter and what terminals and other ship systems you can use to your advantage..

Move carefully through the dangerous ships, searching for supplies and manipulating control systems. React to what you find - will you detour to the generator to bring the power back online or will you fight your way into the security module to disable the ship’s defenses? Choose carefully when to fight, when to run and when just to be a bastard.

Use your hard won supplies to improvise tools and weapons, from the distracting robo-kitty to the horribly unstable clusterflak.

Navigate your tiny escape pod through the vast nebula. Flee from void whales and pirates, and politely avoid the hungry hermits. All the while you must keep scavenging for the food, fuel, and other resources that keep you alive.

Void Bastards features a 12-15 hour campaign that you can complete with an endless supply of prisoners, each with their own unique traits. When one dies, another steps forward to carry on the fight. Don’t worry though, as any crafting progress you’ve made is retained from one to another.
