    Good info, now for my questions. :)

    Will the old Non-DLC blueprints work in the DLC or are the game mechanics changing and they will no longer be valid?

    In the Funcom press release they state that the game will be available in BOTH the Steam and Epic Games Stores.
    Was that an error on Funcom's part or is Empyrion coming to the Epic Games Store?

    If Empyrion is coming to the Epic Games Store, how will this effect the Workshop?

    Non DLC Blueprints will work in both Vanilla and DLC
    DLC Made Blueprints will only work in the DLC

    Thank you for the clarification, some of the custom scenarios in the workshop significantly change the games mechanics and I wanted to make sure my older blueprints would still work.

    (shrugs) I guess that happens because I am an old timer and I remember when the hover engines changed a few years ago.
    All of my HV’s had to be retooled because none of them worked any more.
    Or when pressurized (air tight) cabins became a thing.
    Or when CPU was introduced and I had to go over all of my creations to make them CPU compliant.

    Enough said, again, thank you for the clarification.

    Looking at the success of Palword, I thought, maybe we should add the ability to catch Ziraxes and force them to work for the player? The popularity of the game is guaranteed.
    Joke of course.

    It is already done. You can catch Zirax NPC and use them as crew members.

    I hope there's a gameplay trailer within the next week or so showing off that sword.

    Looks like the DLC is not available yet, waiting to throw some money at it.

    No the server does not get updated with the DLC Content. The DLC is a SP and CooP Scenario
    Its not supported for masive multiplayer

    CooP currently does not work, we are terrible sorry for this and will fix this as soon as possible

    Will there be a separate creative mode for Dark Faction as it seems now creative mode does not contain the blocks from the DLC?
