Star Conflict 1.3

Happy New Year to all our pilots!

In this update you'll see new locations, new assignments and adventures. Shipyards about to launch Destroyers — huge and powerful ships of an entirely new class. The first ships will be available to all pilots in January. We recommend that you start to gather the necessary resources for building them right now. Be the first to get a new ship! They are several times larger than frigates, boast unmatched firepower and new, unique abilities. This is a new age. The age of destroyers.

New assignments are coming from Miss Frost. Keep an eye on stage progress in the news on the official site. Participate in faction competition. In addition, all fans of PvP battles will be pleased to see new maps created and adapted specifically for this game mode.

 

Open Space

During the holidays access to Open Space is open for ranks 4 and higher.

 

Tournaments

During the holidays tournaments will be geld every day. Daily tournaments will be held at: 1-00, 16-00, 19-00 (GMT). To participate in the tournament you need ships of certain ranks. During some of Miss Frost's New Year assignments tournaments will only be held on the new maps:

  • A special new map ‘Northstar Crash Site’.

New battlegrounds

Miss Frost, a spokesman for the Klauss Inc corporation, introduces new secret locations. To find out how to get to them, follow Miss Frost's New Year assignments closely in the news on the official website and forum.

 

‘Northstar’ Crash Site

An ancient service station, lost in low orbit of the planet Naberia-526, that would have remained abandoned, if it were not for an emergency. Robert Artego, captain of the dreadnought ‘Northstar’ made an emergency landing there. Artego hoped to find means of communications at the station and request assistance. His ship, damaged in battles with Aliens and then with the Pirates, made a hard landing. For years, no one knew about the fate of ‘Northstar’, until its crash site was discovered by raiders.

  • The map is available in daily tournaments and PvP modes.
  • Location availability depends on the current stage of Miss Frost's New Year assignments.
  • Available modes:
    • Domination;
    • Combat recon;
    • Beacon hunt;
    • Team battle.

 

Leviathan. Catacombs

The terrifying Leviathan. From a distance it could be mistaken for a small moon. But that's no moon, it's a space station. Leviathan was created as a factory for mining Iridium from the depths of living planets-Bions. But it has the power to destroy entire fleets and worlds. The surface of Leviathan hides countless Alien tech treasures and their most guarded secrets. Fortunately, thanks to the brave act of Dr. Pavlov, this Leviathan is now almost completely incapacitated and left at the mercy of mercenaries.
