Starcom: Nexus Early Access release announced

Explore space, battle aliens and build your ideal ship.

Starcom

Boston based developers at Wx3Labs have announced the release date for their new space exploration, action RPG game Starcom: Nexus, which is set for December 12th. This title is a direct follow-up on the popular online flash game Starcom from almost ten years ago.

Starcom: Nexus is a great looking space exploration game with role-playing elements and real time combat in which players will get their first spaceship to command after finishing their training at the academy. But there’s a catch, they’ll be placed in the middle of nowhere and surrounded by alien threats and uncharted territories.

Exploration has a big role in Starcom, as players discover new planets and systems, trade resources with alien races, upgrade their weapons and build their ultimate spaceships. “In a market full of procedural rogue-like space sims, Starcom: Nexus stands out as an elegant, richly-envisioned, story-driven universe designed with careful detail.”, reads Wx3Labs’ latest press release. “You must explore uncharted worlds, research new technologies, and transform your tiny vessel into a devastating battlecruiser to survive in this mysterious universe.”

Starcom

Starcom’s Early Access phase will begin on December 12th and features the following:

  • Fast-paced combat against fully destructible enemies
  • Design your own ship using a modular construction system
  • Improve your ship’s abilities with by researching a large technology development tree
  • Talk, trade and fight with different alien races with their own agendas and dynamic AI
  • A gorgeous, open universe full of interactive planets to explore and celestial phenomena to discover: nebulae, warp gateways, gas giants, strange rifts, etc.

With a vast universe to explore, somewhat narrative-driven dialogues to follow and adrenaline-filled real-time combat to enjoy, Starcom: Nexus appears as a nice choice for FTL, space and sci-fi fans.
