Finnish developer Frozenbyte just dropped a brand-new MMO on the Steam store: It’s called Starbase, and it’s set to launch into early access “later in 2019.” And yes, they’re very definitely calling it a “massively multiplayer online game with gameplay focused on building and designing spaceships and stations, exploration, resource gathering, crafting, trading, and combat.” Wheeeee!
“Starbase is an MMO with a fully destructible environment and a multitude of fine-detailed simulations that allow you, the players, the ultimate freedom to conquer space and unleash your creativity. Set in a universe of huge scale and detail, the fully-destructible environment and the hybrid of voxel and vertex-based game mechanics enable simulations in the game at immense depth. […] The scale and depth of the simulation in all aspects of the game gives you the ultimate freedom to use your innovativeness and creativity – the building blocks of success in Starbase. From constructing single spaceships with durable outer platings to creating massive automated factories and designing electricity and data networks, you are free to do it your way.”
Did I mention you get to be a robot? Because you get to be a robot. This looks like one to watch, folks.
