Starbase confirms another early access delay, this one to sometime in early 2021

When we had a recent peek at the progress of spaceship sandbox Starbase, we wondered aloud whether the game would meet its targeted early access release date of this year. Turns out it won’t, as confirmed on the game’s official forums.

Early access will now be pushed back to the first quarter of 2021 in order for the devs to be better prepared as well as add some core gameplay loops. The addition of fast travel and a player-built economy is pointed to as one such loop that deserves more development, along with tutorials, player stations, gravity, and a host of fixes and improvements. Once those are added, the devs plan to ramp up alpha testing by inviting more players.

Starbase was announced back in 2019 by Finnish dev Frozenbyte as a “massively multiplayer online game with gameplay focused on building and designing spaceships and stations, exploration, resource gathering, crafting, trading, and combat.” Readers will note that it had aspired to enter early access that year as well, but obviously, things have changed.

So the question is, will it be “yet another gank box” where the launch is massive and then over the subsequent few months the population dwindles and dies as all the casuals are forced out by the most toxic pvpers who themselves eventually get bored and quit when there is no one left to make miserable? :)

I wonder how many times we have to watch this movie before it stops selling tickets.

from what i’m looking at, it seems to be going with the EVE online format where there are safe zones and gank zones
