Transcendent is a multiplayer orientated space simulation game like X-Wing vs Tie Fighter and Freespace. The player is based inside the cockpit of his or her own personal fighter-class ship, which is completely constructed from an assortment of parts and customised to their own needs or play styles. Thanks to a seamless universe engine, battles are placed in a wide range of space environments from beautiful sunrises on the surface of a planet to harsh derelict debris fields or dog-fighting inside the ring system of a gas giant. All the game play is dictated by Newtonian physics; changing direction will require the ship to fire various thrusters accordingly to adjust it's trajectory, and explosion shock waves will be felt.
This screenshot showcases the newly updated missiles (which now follow ships) and the ship targeting system. If you target a ship, the missile launchers will slowly lock on missiles one at a time as long as the player is directly facing the targeted ship. Hitting secondary fire will launch all the targeted missiles in a salvo.
