Publisher Iceberg Interactive and developer Coronado Games announced that their spaceship-building game Starship Corporation is releasing out of Steam’s Early Access Program on May 3, 2018.

StarGem Inc. and Gaijin Entertainment today announced the release of the “Journey” update for the space action MMO Star Conflict. In a 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 ships.

A unique blend of space sim, RPG and 4X games. Conduct research and construction in your own gigantic space station, command your war fleets and heroic companions to invade enemy territory, build up your stronghold, trade, mine, salvage and remind your enemies why they fear you.

Holy Potatoes! We’re in Space?! is now free to play - up until the first galaxy, that is! Have you always been bugging your reluctant friend to buy and play Holy Potatoes! We’re in Space?! Well, now they have no excuse - they can have a taste of the potatoverse and try it for free!

Make your way through hundreds of star systems as you fight to a find a successful life. Enemies are generated immediately after you leave a station. They will follow you across the solar system, but if you're having trouble, you may warp away. The AI isn't intelligent, and players shall quickly learn how to outmaneuver NPC tactics.

Boxelware is ambitiously throwing together many aspects of the open-world space sims and combining the result with the ‘building’ genre that is all the rage these days. The challenge moving forward will be to balance the game so that players enjoy a consistently good experience across the different styles of play that Avorion allows.

A well polished, strategy/tower defense geared towards player-created content. With its huge array of tools available, and a robust player base, Particle Fleet: Emergence is a great pick up for anyone looking for a game to sink multiple hours into.

While I’m hard pressed to say the $25.00 price tag is something it lives up to at the current level of graphical and audio polish, I can see the mechanical strength of the title making it worth the investment for a particular sort. At the very least, I would certainly count myself among them.

Those familiar with Paradox or grand strategy may find that Stellaris isn't quite as deep as HOI, CK2 or even EU4, but it has more than enough to keep space fans consumed for hours, and enough variety to keep each playthrough unique. The lore is awesome. The custom ship designs are awesome. The map and visuals are awesome. If you're a Star Trek fan, a BattleStar Galactica fan, a Star Wars fan, a Dune fan, or even if you just looked up at the stars one day and thought “woah...” then Stellaris is for you!
