New Game Mode Launch on Sunday, June 28th will bring the 4X Space Strategy MMO with a Cult following to the Masses

Outscape, the Grand Space Strategy MMO is launching the new faster ‘Awakening of the Dark’ game mode along with a huge new galaxy on Sunday, June 28th.

For the first time, players will be able to experience a real-time, MMO strategy at an all-action pace, ten 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.

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.” said Joe Webster, Marketing Director at IDA Games. “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!”

The new game mode launch also marks another exciting milestone in Outscape’s progress: the first release of alliance capabilities. This eagerly awaited gameplay feature has been a top ask from the Outscape 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.

Outscape is available in early access on Steam, in English, German and Russian languages.
