Developer KK Game Studio has launched its PC title, Freeman: Star Edge, on Kickstarter. The game hosts a complete sand-box experience, allowing players the freedom to explore the universe without limitations. Exiled to the Star Edge, raiders, warlords, and merchants vie for wealth and power in distant galaxies. Every choice is your own, choose to gather and trade, explore strange lands, or command starship armadas. The destinies of entire worlds await.
“We want to combine space exploration with ground expeditions, in addition to merging realistic along with adding realistic combat like Amestal combat and pretty intense large-scale space combat into one-fluent, one single player game.” says, Lead developer, Hai Ren, who discussed the game during an interview on CobraTV
Many people are describing the Freeman: Star Edge game as “Skyrim in Space”, “Mountain Blade in Space” or some similar elements to the game Mass Effect.
CORE GAMEPLAY FEATURES:
- Tactical Squad-based Ground Combat: Wade into glorious battle with your allies and mercenaries. You manage equipment, logistics, morale, and training to maximize combat efficiency. Lay siege or skirmish in the open field to win combat objectives. You will also decide on tactics: take it slow and steady with camouflage and suppressed weapons or go full throttle with automatic weapons, sniper rifles, and explosives.
- Grand-scale Space Combat: You can lead a fleet of various ship classes and engage in epic combat in space. Achieve victory by boarding enemy capital ships, or winning dogfights and battlecruiser clashes. You can upgrade your armada with the spoils of war, choosing from laser weapons, missiles, and torpedoes. Whether you hunt space pirates and loot their bases or wage a campaign against a powerful imperial navy, your victories will change the balance of power.
- Dynamic, free-form gameplay: Define your own success and set your own objectives in a living world. You are free to loot, gather, mine, and trade, gamble and grab a drink at the bar. Find your place in society by seeking out friends, contacts and companions and building relationships, or go it alone, infiltrating strongholds and using diversions and assassination to get what you want. Each day in Star Edge is unique and gives you a chance to step in and decide the politics of the system. Factions engage one another dynamically. Each world is full of conflicts and intrigue: bandits raid friendly settlements, resource wars will break out, and cautious alliances will be formed as your story evolves.
- Modding Support: We will work closely with modders to create a modding friendly system and allows a lot of user-generated content. We want to make modding in Freeman as friendly as possible, we will provide tools and guidelines for modders. Things we’re planning to make moddable include: items, weapons, characters, factions, missions, dialog, textures and game difficulty.
