I was shocked to realize today just how long it’s been since we covered Gaijin’s Star Conflict – that’s the rather well-loved but under-the-radar PvP space MMO by the same company that does War Thunder. So we’re glad to rectify that today as Gaijin has launched a massive update to the game called Journey that seems designed to get new players into the game without, you know, freaking them out.
“In a major redesign of the game’s progression system, players can now earn experience points and unlock new content by taking part in a story-driven campaign. The update offers beginners a gradual introduction to the game’s warring factions, different ship types, and incrementally increasing complex combat scenarios, while experienced pilots can head directly to more challenging adventures in outer space on new, powerful ships.”
The update further boasts new high-end ships and two new sectors of space where the “focus is on long-range engagements.” The game is free-to-play, so you can check it out on Steam at your leisure.
