Hello Galactic Survivalists! Today, not only are we releasing version 1.11, but we are also celebrating the launch of our first true expansion of the main game with "Dark Faction"! In order to reward you for your monetary support with appropriate content, we have been working hard on various features that will also open up entirely new thematic areas for the future. Among others: - Dynamic territory expansion of the Dark Faction across the galaxy! - The Dark Field, a planetary and orbital effect field that will affect your drives, weapons, and much more. - New decoration on conquered planets as well as corrupted animals and NPCs - A completely new type of enemy that dynamically develops from an egg form to camouflaged soldiers and then to an egg-laying queen. - Grenade launchers (with bouncing grenades), bows (with explosive arrows), and swords (including a temporary energy shield!) - The organic-technological arsenal of the Dark Faction with new devices, weapons, and new organic building blocks, including textures and more than 50 exclusive, organic shapes and organic doors! - Volumetric fog in conquered orbits.

More content and updates are planned and will follow - as always, incorporating your feedback! But for now, we hope you have a lot of fun and thank you in advance for your support! Your Eleon Game Studios team.
