Greetings Galactic Survivalists! We have a very special announcement for you today! We know you might get lonely surviving in the big wide Empyrion universe alone, so coming in Alpha 6.0, we are introducing purchasable in-game pets! As a first iteration, for just the low price of $59.95, you can get this adorable little Dragon to follow you around, and protect you from enemies and environmental hazards. They even come in multiple colors! You even get an egg, and can observe how they hatch: The dragon may look cute and innocent but once it smells a Zirax, it transforms into fearless killing machine. We observed how it slaughtered a Zirax in less than 10 seconds....very impressive! We hope you enjoy these new companions to accompany your adventures. Enjoy! EDIT (April 2, 2017): In case you already pictured yourself to discover the mysteries of the Empyrion universe together with your little dragon companion, unfortunately we have to disappoint you - it was an April Fools' Day prank ;-) However, this does not mean that we will not add AI companions one day to the game (not for Alpha 6.0 though).
