VoidExpanse is a new space exploration RPG that mixes a top-down, arcade-style perspective with dynamic content, an advanced 3D engine, and enough depth of play to rival most space-faring games. VoidExpanse is compatible with PC, Mac, and Linux.
STORY & GAMEPLAY
As a young adventurer who barely manages to avoid life as a farmer, the player is called upon to unite the galaxy under one banner to thwart an alien invasion. However, in order to achieve this objective, the player must first form an alliance with one of three warring factions (Order, Freedom, or Fanatics), accept their values, and help them achieve their goals.
Players get to take the helm of their very own starships, mine asteroids, trade with space stations, and complete missions to upgrade their ships *and* character abilities. Thanks to the procedurally-generated world, every playthrough offers something new.
In addition to the single-player campaign, Void Expanse also features a multiplayer mode with fully persistent worlds — turning each server into a mini MMO. Players can create their own galaxies through custom mods or play on existing servers created by the community.
DEVELOPER QUOTE – Valentin Gukov, managing director of AtomicTorch Studio:
“With VoidExpanse, we wanted to blend the unique gameplay, excitement, and feel of old-school classics with a new game engine and modern gameplay mechanics. The player is both independent and at the same time tied to the world – a living universe with factions, agendas, memories, and storylines large and small. VoidExpanse provides a spectrum of possible careers, skill development, and in-game choices that can greatly impact each playthrough.”
