Alpha patch 0.84 has just been released via Steam to all Alpha players.
This release includes new fleet merging and splitting functions, attack and return mode, UI improvements, visual enhancements and more. Alpha players will also notice that the game has been renamed to Outscape in their Steam library and the game itself. If you missed our announcements about the new name you can find out more here.
The changes in this patch represent a fraction of what we’ve been working on since the last patch, but as they are game-changers, they need to be released at the same time as the new galaxy on the way. We covered some of these changes in a recent dev diary post in case you missed it.
Updating the game client: the game should be automatically updated via Steam. Please check here if the download doesn’t automatically start when you launch Steam.[Read more…]
