Expansion Pack : Pariahs' Bane (7th of March 2017)
« on: February 18, 2017, 12:02:59 pm »
Does it have a name yet ? And an ETA, like, before summer, end of the year... ?

I don't follow the blog, so thank you for posting this to the forum.
I will have my money ready for that DLC :D

We will announce everything in a week or so (hopefully). There is still some final finishing touches left.
As for the release date - no promises yet, but the expansion is essentially complete. So, I'd say no more than a few weeks, but don't take my word for it :)
Whenever we give any ETAs it never works out... :)
But if EVERYTHING goes according to plan then we will announce the expansion in one week and then release it after another week.

I will have my money ready for that DLC :D
Thank you! It will really be a big deal for us if we can raise a bit of extra money for the team as that would help us to sustain the company a bit longer.
CryoFall is still a long way away before we can even thing about releasing it for sale.

Ho, much sooner than i expected. Depending on price, i'll buy it for sure. I suppose it will support Linux as well as the main game ? No beta before launch ?

Sure, it will certainly support linux.
As for beta - we already had some people try the game some time ago, so it should be okay. This time we didn't announce it until it was actually finished, so we had plenty of time to make sure everything works :)

Just read the blogpost, it sounds great, I might have to break out the modelling & texturing tools again and start building some more ship mods for the game.

That would certainly be great :)
You created a bunch of awesome ships before :)

Prepurchase the game in our Store right now to receive your copy the second it is released as well as an additional Steam key!

Does it mean i get 2 copies of the game's expansion ? Or one DRM free version + a Steam key ?

Technically yes, but that's not exactly how it's supposed to work :)
The idea is that you get a copy on our website (direct), but if you prefer to play on Steam, you also get a Steam key and activate the game there as well.

Edit:
I just created a new topic with the detailed list of changes in the update and info about the expansion.
Please find it here: http://forums.atomictorch.com/index.php?topic=936

YES! I have seen my Steam Updating just now, I am so very exited, and also so very tired.
Unfortunally this will have to wait until next time. But I'm looking very forward on this one :)

It seems good. I started an Industrial guy now. I didn't play since a long time, the assets are really nice, clean, neat, readable... I remember i thought it was pretty, and it's still very pretty. If only i could mix Drox Operative with VoidExpanse, it would be the perfect Hack'n'slash in space...

So far i only grind some roids to buy the Heretic, and now i'm heading to a freaky fan. Not sure if i will kill him or not, yet.

So far, i tried to be a industrial peaceful guy, mining mostly and doing some fedex, while avoiding fights (only the small basic pirates are easily doable), but now i feel again it's going to be super hard not to be a fighter. Space seems crowded with pirates, quite crazy. I think it was already like this in vanilla game, but now i try to avoid fight, it feels worst.

Less pirates, but in small patroling bands, would feel better, i think. Also they seem to keep agro forever, somehow annoying, but it may be i'm way too slow (even if they are offscreen, if i stop they catch me).

I only saw the crafting stuff, not yet actually buid anything, as i sold everything to buy a better ship. Didn't join a faction yet, only started the Pariah line i guess. Not sure what i will do yet, i'm only level 11, and almost all points went to Industrial/Mining so far.

Well, that's normal. If is that kind of game after all. While you can certainly play without combat to some degree, but ultimately this is a space combat game, so naturally combat is a major part of the game.

As for crafting - I gave a short overview of that here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/324260/discussions/0/133258593406809873/
