Version 1.8 will not be a savegame break BUT as always we recommend starting a new game in the Experimental Version. Although we try to avoid this, starting a new game may be necessary again in the next phases of the Experimental Version.

Because we added the new decoration to more planets, all our Official Servers will be wiped on the Public Release.

Important note for modders: You have to update Unity to v2021.3.2f1


New default scenario start:


We don't want to spoil too much here, so let's just say that the new game start has been completely reworked and may be very different from the previous game experience in the default scenario. Especially for players who have been in the game for a while, there might be some new strategies that can be pursued on the way up into space. Without giving too much away, it can be said that the starting playfield will not be limited to just one celestial body and that exploration will play a more...

Hi Galactic Survivalists!

While we are still putting the finishing touches to the current version 1.7.x, it is time to give you a short overview of the topics that are planned or expected to be worked on this year.


Version 1.8 & 1.8.5
For the big summer update 1.8 there are several major topics on the agenda!

First and foremost, we will be adding completely new models for NPCs and creatures that will soon be roaming the worlds of Empyrion. At the same time, we also plan to revamp some of the NPCs and creatures currently in use, replacing them with new and revised models that fit in with the general visual overhaul of the planets.

Apart from that, we will technically fully integrate the new decoration system that we have shown as an example in the last versions. In 1.8 we will revise the planets and partly completely redesign them so that they can unfold their potential in the light of the new possibilities. This includes new, but also revised models for decoration, rocks, harvestables and resources (e.g. Rock resources on the surface).

Another focus will be improvements to the UI, to various help and display systems and a partly completely new game start.

In conjunction with that, 1.8 will continue to be worked on in numerous other areas. In addition to bug fixes, work on the code base is planned to make the game fit for the next updates and game content. Some Quality of Life and Convenience will also be in focus.

We will publish more information about this in the next few weeks on the way to the experimental release!
For version 1.8.5, the focus will then be on new playable content, missions and activities that will build on the innovations of 1.8. Fixing bugs is, of course, always part of the plan.

Version 1.8: approx. end of June/beginning of July
Version 1.8.5: approx. middle/end of October


Version 1.9
The year-end update will be all about the player avatar, its appearance, its movement possibilities and related functions and features! The update will not only change some settings, but will be a complete rework!

This means a considerable intervention in the code base (which is currently already being prepared) and will challenge all departments in the team due to the deep integration of the functions of the player controller in features and gameplay. However, we are sure that the effort is worth it and that we will be able to...

Hi Galactic Survivalists!

With today's update 1.7.5 we are fixing more problems that were found and repaired thanks to you in the past experimental phase.

Also some changes and additions that didn't fit in 1.7.3 are included this time.

Among other things, the Empyriopedia has been updated with all the important information about each status effect, medical equipment and items! All information can now be found again in the groups Afflictions, Benefits and Medical Items / Devices. In addition, minor adjustments have been made here. For more details, see the list below.

We are also trying out a new feature for you by adding a 'REPORT' button to the top right of the player inventory (TAB). This will allow you to access the forum from within the game. Let us know how you like such a shortcut or what you would like to see there instead.

Many more changes and adjustments can be found in the full list below.

Important: Please note that all our Official Server will be wiped with this release.
