Hello Galactic Survivalists! First and foremost: We are extremely excited about your enthusiasm for the upcoming DLC 'Dark Faction'! We are also delighted with all the positive feedback and numerous questions that have reached us in the last few days . You can find the announcement including the trailer OVER HERE. We will now try to answer some of the most frequently asked questions about the Empyrion Galactic Survival DLC 'Dark Faction'. Additionally, we plan to release more blog posts with further details and information about the DLC in the weeks leading up to the release! As always: If you have specific questions about the gameplay or the new features of the DLC, feel free to post them below this message and we will try to answer them in the next theme blog. Without further delay - let's get started! FAQ - General - Does the DLC only work in single player? Server owners can set up servers based on the DLC-included game version as normal. However, all players must own and have installed the main game and the DLC to play on these servers Is the "Dark Faction Rising" scenario suitable for multiplayer mode? The scenario is intended for single player and small co-op games. It is not balanced or made for dedicated servers. Dedicated multiplayer scenarios based on the DLC may follow in the future. Will the content of the main game (version with and without DLC) continue to be updated free of charge (content updates, bug fixes)? We will continue to provide the main game (version without DLC) with free content and bug fixes for its owners. Owners of the DLC version of the game will of course also receive associated bug fixes and DLC-specific content updates free of charge Will there be another bug fix update before the DLC release? Bug fixes that are relevant for both the main game version with and without DLC will, whenever possible, be fixed and installed at the same time. However, it is also possible that the DLC game version and the non-DLC game version will sometimes be updated independently of each other. Please keep an eye on our announcements! - Compatibility - Can I download/subscribe to blueprints created with the DLC for my non-DLC game? We are currently clarifying the final technical details. However, it will not be possible to use DLC-related content (e.g. blueprints with DLC content) on non-DLC savegames or game versions (neither in single player nor in multiplayer) Can players who do not own the DLC play on servers that require the DLC? That will not be possible. To play on a server or scenario that uses DLC content, the creators and players must own and have installed both the main game and the DLC. Can scenarios that were created with the main game (version without DLC) use DLC contents? Scenarios or mods that are based solely on the main game (version without DLC) will not be able to use the contents of the DLC. - Gameplay & Features - Will we get melee combat? Yes, there will be melee combat in the DLC game version. Take a closer look at the published screenshots Will the main storyline of the game be changed, expanded or completed with the DLC release? Eleon Game Studios is a very small studio. To make the DLC fun and enjoyable, all developers and content designers have been working on this project for the last few months. We will of course continue to work on the main scenario ... especially on completing the main storyline (which will be included in both the version with and without DLC!)! However, there is no announcement on this yet and the work on the main story arc it is not part of the "Dark Faction" DLC update or the accompanying update to both game versions for the reasons mentioned above. The eponymous scenario in the DLC will also have its own storyline, which is not directly based on the main storyline or is only loosely connected to it.
