Starborne Open Beta Launch Trailer

It is clear from the Starborne Open Beta trailer that Solid Clouds creation is truly impressive. The trailer doesn’t show too much in terms of gameplay but few of the games core mechanics can be seen. There’s a grid system to make sense of the massive space-based MMORTS universe. Starborne makes use of intricate menu systems. There will be a variety of units and impressive visuals, both cinematic and in-game. However, those that haven’t played in the Alpha or seen any gameplay will not be able to gather too many details from the short one minute and thirty-three-second trailer.

Co-founder and CEO of Solid Clouds, Stefan Gunnarsson stated, “I’m so proud of the new map design. It really manages to condense all the lessons we’ve learned over the past 5 years. With it, we are both catering to more play styles and also able to supercharge the deeply player-driven political side of the game.”

New fans or those interested in an MMORTS can expect a sci-fi strategy game based around empire building and deep-rooted player-based politics that control the pace of the game. Each game is played over a ten-week period. Players work together to strategize and forge alliances to build themselves up and strengthen their army. There is also an “intensely competitive” endgame and the press release suggests that this endgame will “decide the fate of everything”. 

Starborne’s Open Beta sports a spread of quality of life improvements. Players in the upcoming Open Beta can expect a new map, new victory conditions, improved performance and stability, increased game pace, and increase alliance size to 15, an in-game Tutorial, an android Companion App preview, new alien artifacts and broken planets to find around the frontier, badges to showcase progress and achievements, and new Empire Skills and Map Pins. 

Solid Clouds, the Icelandish studio was founded in 2013. Their goal was to use the best part of 4X Grand Strategy and mash them together with the scale of an MMO to create the unique, Starborne. The studio currently employs 18 people and Starborne will be their first game to be released.
