So SC came out with version 2.0 last weekend. I only know because one on you nagged me until I bought it, not because he wanted me to enjoy a really cool new game, which I think it is. Nooooo he just wanted someone to co-pilot his new shiny big ship with him. But that was what was really cool for me. You know how it takes a really good crew to effectively operate a attack helo or big boat (sue me I can't remember their name) in Battlefield 4? Well imagine a spaceship, with a crew of 5 in a battle with multiple enemy craft (both NPC and PVP). Whether you were the pilot or one of 2 co-pilots (which controlled the distribution of shields or power output to the engines) or one of 2 manned turrent gunners the action was pretty fun. Admittedly the game is still being developed so don't rush out and buy it expecting to play for hours or sometimes minutes with no crashing. Also don't expect to jump right in and own one of these monstrous multiplayer spaceships.

The developers are paying for this project by selling ships. The base package is a little over $40, in which you get the choice of 1 of 2 small single person ships. The larger multiplayer ships go for over $200. After the games release you will be able to buy new ships with the in game currency. There will also be a large amount of first person shooter elements, which were also released with version 2.0.

This so big I can't even begin to describe everything here. Below is a short video of some of the things included with the latest patch. Also there is a lot of material to read at https://robertsspaceindustries.com

I know there was a lot of talk earlier this year about this game, but I thought I would give my 2 cents worth since I didn't care before and I didn't pay attention.

Did you just describe FTL the FPS? Cause it sounds like a FPS version of FTL...I...I kinda want that.

I have a few ships for the game, and a dual joystick setup for the game.

But I am trying to hold out so that I can experience a more complete game once it is finished, or nearing finished.

What he said I think. Up to you if you want to check it out. The game is still almost unplayable due to crashes. I do think that it is almost there in a limited capacity. I watched one of the Chairman updates where he says a new patch will be released before the end of the year. Version 2.1

I have at least one ship, I think, but I'm waiting for something more complete.

Merritt - Loving your excitement about the game. I'm right there with you! I own 2 ships.

I did play the dog fighting module when it was first released and can't wait to see the new content. I just need to reclaim some disk space (format coming soon) and I'll be giving the dl a go - 30+ gb last I saw I'm terrified to hear how big it is now! They released my retaliator in this patch, I haven't even seen it in the hanger yet.

For me it's all about how immersive the persistent universe they create is. I have some pretty high expectations from this group of devs!

It's been a while since it was setup. I'm pretty sure Admrzr has permission for it. I'll send him a pm for you!
