Indie game developer and publisher IDA Games is proud to announce a major update to their critically-acclaimed Outscape, a groundbreaking 4X Space Strategy MMO, in which you are pitted against thousands of players in a huge online persistent galaxy. Available exclusively on Early Access via STEAM™, Outscape challenges you to build an empire, colonize, research, design ships, ally, trade and fight to ensure your civilization’s survival.
Outscape has gained a cult following of loyal fans and players mesmerized by the depth and gameplay; today, a major update has been applied to the game, making the out-of-this-world MMO even better! Awakening of the Dark is a new game mode and galaxy, where players experience a real-time MMO strategy at an all-action pace, ten (10) times faster than other galaxies open to players since April 2017; consensus in the community is that this 4X MMO represents a new genre which no prior game has managed to crack. Awakening of the Dark marks another exciting milestone in the games progress: the first release of alliance capabilities. This eagerly awaited gameplay feature has been a top ask from the community. It will take cooperative gameplay to another level for players right now, while also opening the door to an exciting variety of team-based game modes planned in the near the future.
Says Joe Webster, Marketing Director @ IDA Games: “Until now, each galaxy that we’ve opened for players has featured a long-term game mode played at a casual pace – to reflect the immense scale of space and that Outscape is a grand strategy game based in an MMO environment. And over the years a large ever-growing community of passionate players has formed around this. But we’ve also seen strong demand for an alternative game mode played at a faster pace. Hence the new ten times faster Awakening of the Dark game mode, where you’ll be able to achieve in a couple of days what takes weeks to achieve in the other game mode. We believe this combination of fast 4X gameplay and an MMO galaxy represents a new genre in its own right. It did mean having to rework player spawning and newbie protection to accommodate the faster pace, but we’re thrilled with the result. The team certainly had immense fun testing it!”
