Everyone knows that if you’re going to head out into deep space to explore strange new worlds, you’d better have a trusty shotgun on hand with which to greet the wildlife. Fortunately, Colonies Online players won’t have to go without solid weaponry with the game’s 0.11 alpha patch.
The patch, which came out late last week, adds shotguns, rifles, and pulse guns to the sci-fi sandbox. Colonies Online also introduced its first edition of the crafting system, as players can now fashion their own weapons and armor with new stations.
Colonies Online challenges players to construct outposts and then battle other players and aliens in a top-down, non-target combat system. The MMO is currently available for $15 through Steam early access, and you can watch the new trailer for it after the break!
