Post news Report RSS Road to Alpha: Official Launch Trailer Release

Eleon Game Studio reveals official launch trailer for the Alpha release of Empyrion.

Posted by on

Hi Galactic Survivalists!

Last week we had to announce a minor delay for the upcoming Alpha 1.0 release. This delay has come unexpected to most of you, and we apologize for any resulting inconvenience. It has been a hard choice, putting us between a rock and a hard place: seeing sad faces because of the last minute delay or seeing sad faces because of some major bugs still present in the originally planned release. In the end, we decided that you deserve an Alpha version, which is as polished and bug free as we can achieve - and rather withstand the wave of critics because of the last minute delay.

The new features that will now find their way into the first Alpha version due to this delay would have been part of the first patch anyhow. Now they just moved slightly forward to the release version and did not consume any minute of the precious development time dedicated to bug fixing! Said that, we are progressing nicely with the bug smashing. Just as of yesterday, we surpassed the milestone of 300 bugfixes and changes made in the course of the Alpha development (not counting in the new features and the fixes of the Public versions that were released in parallel)!

Some folks asked, if we could release more footage videos of the Alpha. For those, we’d like to answer: keep your eyes peeled (for the upcoming week)! ;-)

Enough chit-chat, it is time to get to the real things. As the headline states, we want to show you our new "Empyrion - Galactic Survival" Alpha Trailer, giving you an idea of the new look and feel of the upcoming Alpha version! We hope you like it:



On behalf of the Developers, Testers and the Community Crew, we would like to thank all of you for your support, your patience, the stream of never ending suggestions – and in particular for the unprecedented way, on how this great community sticks together, even if not everyone agrees on the same things sometimes ;-)

We are very proud of our community - and we hope you all will enjoy the upcoming Alpha 1.0 as much as we did when developing it.

Yours,

Empyrion Dev Team

First of all it´s "worst" "alpha" "release", "given" "shields" "should" , secondly they are doing a fine job and not having added feature X/Y in an Alpha is not something to stop production over. Now please go and disconnect your internet connection so we all can enjoy our lives. Thank you.

You missed him misspelling "enemies." Just thought I'd get on the grammar train too.

Average troll trolling.

As of the pre-alpha, there are enemies to fight in space. You just simply did not have the skill, nor the time to go into space in survival. And as for the shield, they are adding offline protection which is a large step towards active shields.

@ Topic; This is getting better and better, way superior to Space Engineers at this point if you ask me :) Keep up the great work!

It's certainly amazing to see how much more stable and performance-friendly it is. I loaded in an absolutely massive build from the workshop and I could not detect even the slightest dip in performance. If it had been SE I'd have been playing a slideshow.
