Fractured Space goes free-to-play, adds drop system

by on May 20, 2016

Edge Case Games have announced that their space combat game Fractured Space will be changing to a free-to-play model in the run up to its full launch later this year.

As well as turning free-to-play, Fractured Space has been updated to include a brand new drop system which “offers rewards to players for a variety of in-game activities while simultaneously making the method of acquiring new crew members more satisfying. Twenty additional crew members are now available, doubling the number in the game, and Drop Pods that can unlock new crew are earned on a daily basis through the completion of games over the course of each day.”

The update also adds two new sector maps, two new ships and better game balancing.

“Fractured Space is fundamentally team-based and we believe the new update will add a strong competitive element to our universe and increase accessibility to new players” said James Brooksby, CEO of Edge Case Games. “We listen to our community and get their feedback, and this continues to help us shape the game as we move closer to full launch.”

Fractured Space is available on Early Access via Steam. It is expected to fully launch on PC later this year.
