Starborne, the upcoming 4X MMORTS from Solid Clouds will begin its seventh alpha test on October 18.
Starborne is a new take on the strategy genre, combining 4X empire building with the real time, multiplayer component of an MMORTS. Players take on the role of space commander to compete against thousands of other players over control of the map, forging alliances, waging wars and expanding their space station into a galactic empire along the way.
Solid Clouds, who has been working on Starborne for a little over three years now, regularly conducts tests to gather feedback directly from the players.
“We are very excited to show the community what we have been working on since the last test,” says Stefán Gunnarsson, founder of Solid Clouds. “With the addition of strategic points, the endgame will become even more dynamic.”
New features in Alpha 7:
The three month alpha test will begin on October 18, and players can download the game on www.starborne.com shortly before the server goes live.
