Star Conflict 1.6.0 Rise of Giants

 

We wish all pilots a Merry Christmas and present a great winter update for Star Conflict! The game now has a new PvE-mission “The price of trust”. We significantly changed the system of PvE missions and their availability. Added a new location “Pilgrim-11” for PvP battles. And most importantly — very soon all pilots will be able to get the incredible “Ellydium” destroyer!

 

 

New PvE system “UMC Missions”

As promised, we are significantly changing and expanding the system of PvE missions in the game. Now, missions for ranks 1-17 will have multiple dynamic difficulty levels from 1 to infinity. Players initially have access only to the first difficulty level. Subsequent levels will become available as you progress through the previous ones. Enemies in the missions become stronger with each level. Mission level is selected by players on the ship selection screen. Players will also be able to get stronger as part of the PvE missions, by buying their own special bonuses that only work in PvE.

  • All pilots completing PvE missions get a special valuable resource “Insignia”.
  • The earned Insignia can be used to increase mission levels.
  • The earned Insignia can be used to enhance your defences and power in PvE missions.

 

PvE Mission of ranks 6-17 and above are now called “Deadly Challenges”. They are not covered by the new system.

The new PvE Missions will be constantly available for some time after launch, and then they will be added to the general list of available missions.

  • There is a limit for the new PvE resource — Insignia. The set limit of 200 units is sufficient for players to reach the 80th progress level. As soon as we make sure that everything works as intended, the limits will be adjusted.

  • Infinite PvE missions are tied less to player skill and more to the time they spend. This should give players a sense of progress, similar to classic RPGs.

  • The respawn system in all PvE has also been reworked. Now, in each PvE players will only have a limited number of respawns. We will closely monitor whether the current number of respawns is sufficient and tune them, if necessary.

  • In contrast to the infinite PvE, we added deadly challenges, which are designed for experienced players. Their difficulty is much higher, and the reward is increased.

  • In special operations, the number of respawns per player is set to 10. This is the average number of player respawns in battle.

 

New PvE-mission “The price of trust”

This is an urgent message from the UMC. The security service of Ellydium Corporation has just placed a contract for all experienced mercenaries.

The dreadnought “Defiant” requires urgent repairs. Immediately after the dreadnought's breakdown, its captain Red Bacon turned for help to his old acquaintance Landao, a well-known adventurer who managed to unite scattered gangs of opportunists and create his own small free republic among the forgotten rocks of the Raider Range. As a result, virtually all of the dreadnought's command was captured by Landao's pirates. And the ship itself is stuck in the system.

The UMC is forced to attract all available pilots and mercenaries to repel the attack. You have to urgently arrive in the Kayeed system in the Raider Range area, protect the dreadnought and repel the attack. Due to Landao’s treachery, Ellydium came very close to losing the experimental dreadnought.

This is probably just the beginning. Someone very influential and prepared wants to take possession of the dreadnought at any cost.

 

New location “Pilgrim-11”

You've never seen the corporation “Ellydium” like this!

Welcome to the multifunctional complex “Pilgrim-11”. It includes an advanced laboratory that works in the field of agriculture, renewable natural resources and environmentally friendly fuels. Despite the shaky situation in the galaxy, Ellydium boldly looks forward, creating a better future for each of us.

Please note that the planet has a mild climate and flora and fauna are highly developed. All this creates an extremely favourable environment for living. There is a residential area next to the laboratory, as well as recreation and rehabilitation centres. Hydroponic factories are located on the surface of the planet.

Let's move on to the next...

— Excuse me, can I ask you a question?

— Of course. Your opinion is very important to us.

— What is the dreadnought doing here? Does “Ellydium” have ships of this class!?

— No comments. Please let's go to the next gallery.

 

Ellydium destroyer “Ze'Ta”

Corporation “Ellydium” proudly presents its main achievement — the latest destroyer, built by scientists at the station “Ellydium Theta”. The ship was designed using the latest advances in the development of crystalline technology. Incredible offensive and defensive power make the destroyer any team's trump card in any battle. The vessel can provide fire support in both offensive and defensive operations.

The ship's unique feature is a remotely controlled special crystalline swarm, created under the personal guidance of doctors Matthew Gilmore and Conrad Dimeni. This is a true weapon of retribution! Mankind's sword of vengeance, forged by employees of the corporation “Ellydium”!

The ship will be available to all players from January 4. Until them, all pilots can prepare the resources necessary to get the ship among the first.

You can learn more about all the features of the Ellydium destroyer “Ze'Ta” from the news on the official website of the game.
