Star Conflict 1.5.0 Journey

We congratulate all pilots on the approaching New Year 2018 and present a big winter update in Star Conflict — Journey!

Transcript of the emergency meeting of the ‘Ellydium Theta’ station's management.
December 19, 4617.
 
Ellydium dispatcher : Attention to all pilots.We are detecting heightened alien activity. The danger of flights in the zone ‘Leviathan’ is increased to orange level.
 
Conrad Dimeni: Thank you for responding so quickly to the call. We have an emergency situation. Natasha, you have the floor.
 
Natasha Cortés: Thank you, Conrad.During the last 24 hours we recorded anomalously high activity of aliens both in the station zone and on the periphery of ??our tracking stations' coverage area. In recent hours, the activity of aliens has grown by an order of magnitude. Mass attacks on transport ships and mercenaries have been recorded. In fact, communication with other stations and sectors has been interrupted.We predict a massive alien attack at the station ‘Ellydium Theta’ within the next few hours. It's possible that we only have minutes.
 
Dr. Parks: It is quite possible that we are to blame for this situation.Perhaps the fact that we launched the experimental space convolution device the other day is directly related to the increased alien activity, who do not want us to pull the Leviathan into the so-called Reality Continuum.
 
Conrad Dimeni: The sensors report that alien combat stations have entered the zone...
 
Natasha Cortés: It seems that it's time Festus Morten returned the favour.I need to contact him urgently.
 
Ellydium dispatcher : All station personnel, get ready to repel the alien attack. Occupy your battle stations according to the staffing table at red level.
 

New player progress system

Very soon, after the New Year holidays, a new player progress system will be introduced into the game. Progress through the ranks will happen in the form of a story campaign, covering a variety of game modes. Reaching a new level will give the pilot additional opportunities — new game modes, more powerful ships, weapons, modules. By raising his level the pilot will also have access to new locations in the ‘Open Space’ mode.
 
A new player progress system will be available in the near future.We'll talk about it in more detail in the upcoming releases of the Developer Blog.  And now all pilots need to prepare their fleet!

New ship ‘Object NY18’

 

Allegiance : Unique ship.
Class : Frigate
Role: Guard
Rank: 5-15. Depending on the rank chosen by the player, the number of available modules varies with the ship.
 
For the first time a ship of this type was discovered on one of the satellites of the gas giant MOA-2011-BLG-322. The titanic ancient ship was abandoned for millennia. By pure chance, it was discovered by treasure hunters. A working mini-shipyard was found on board, which enabled Ellydium Corporation to quickly launch mass production of similar vessels, but much smaller. These ships were transferred to the UMC for testing.
 
Only until January 18 of the new year there is an opportunity to get the unique ship ‘Object NY18’!


 

For daily access to the game between December 19 and January 18, each pilot receives a special container with ‘Object NY18’ parts.
You need to accept Arlette Socal's special mission to get the container.
In total, to build the whole ship you need to get a cabin and 10 sectors of the ship
All pilots will also find unique holiday stickers in the containers
Players do not need to enter the game every day in the specified period. If you miss a few days, you just get the ship a little later.
 Attention! The last chance to get the ship is to start collecting it no later than January 7, 11 days before the end of the specified period.
All pilots will also find unique holiday stickers in the containers

Special module ‘Tactical shielding’

You and all allies within special module range receive additional shields. In addition, your ship's shield is restored for every ally that came under the influence of the special module.

Active module ‘Dome’ MDS

When activated, hacks enemy missiles flying to your ship. At the same time, some of them are redirected to the current locked target.

Active module ‘Redeployment mechanism’

The ship changes positions with the enemy visible on the radar.

Active module ‘Energy systems destabilizer’

All opponents in range lose the ability to restore energy.

Global fleet revamp!


 

The UMC begins a large pre-series check of new equipment. Ships designed at the dawn of the game will receive the latest unique equipment and capabilities! New modules and weapons during the holidays can be quickly obtained with xenochips. The fleet will receive updates gradually, role by role. The ships of Command role will be the first to receive an overhaul.
 
Attention! We recommend that you obtain and upgrade the latest equipment as soon as possible! Purchase of experimental modules will be available only during the pre-series test. When the test concludes, the modules will be available during post-battle trophy search and in Open Space mode. We will announce the end of testing separately. Stay tuned!
 


 

The upgraded modules and ships will also help pilots get ranks faster in the upcoming new player progress system, which will be launched after the holidays. Progress through the ranks will happen in the form of a story campaign, covering a variety of game modes. Reaching a new level will give the pilot additional opportunities — new game modes, more powerful ships, weapons, modules. By raising his level the pilot will also have access to new locations in the ‘Open Space’ mode.

Your objective is to win as many battles as possible. Teams play three rounds in total. In addition, for each subsequent victory pilots get xenochips. The more you win — the more you get. Everything is transparent and simple.
