Combat

 

Combat is at the heart of the Arkin experience. It’s fast, dynamic, and most importantly revolves around your playstyle.

The most powerful ability given to the player is the Orion’s dynamic energy routing system. This allows the player to change strategies on the fly by instantly sending your ship’s power reserves to whatever system you need most.

You can use speed to outmaneuver your enemies, power up your shields to survive the most dangerous assaults, or overload your weapons to rain destruction on your foes.

You will face a number of challenges in your fight against the Arckin, from straight up combat to infiltrating heavily defended enemy territory. The battlefield is constantly changing and it’s up to you to change with it and keep the upper hand.

  • Fight alongside your allies in Battlegroup Delta as you struggle against the Arckin threat
  • Use the Orion’s energy routing system to change strategies in an instant
  • Take on several different mission types from pure dogfighting to stealth infiltrations
  • Customize the Orion from weapons to shields to fit your playstyle
 
 

Story

 

With the development of faster-than-light travel in 2109, humanity finally began it’s expansion from Earth and the Sol system. 2178 marked the formation of the Terran Federation, bringing all the rapidly multiplying colonies under the control of a single unified government. By the start of the 24th century the Federation’s territory reached thousands of light years from Earth.

As the distance between the outer colonies and Earth grew, tensions began to rise. Severe and violent political unrest ran rampant in the outer systems in 2382; with many colonies in a state of outright rebellion. The result was the formation of the Outer Systems Alliance in 2437, a new independent government resisting the policies and rule of the Federation.

A fragile cease-fire was established and both sides began to militarize, starting the largest arms race in history. What began as a cold war escalated into all-out conflict in 2532, with war being waged across hundreds of bordering systems.

The year is now 2563, and humanity is still locked in a civil war. Desperately looking to break the stalemate the TDF has developed an advanced prototype ship with unique capabilities: the Orion.

  • You play as Viper, the pilot of the Orion prototype a veteran in the TDF navy
  • Fight on the frontlines of the Arckin war as part of Battlegroup Delta
  • Uncover the mysteries surrounding the Arckin
  • Save humanity from the alien onslaught…or die trying

Customization

 

The Orion was designed around a new philosophy in starfighter engineering; the idea that he who most easily adapts is victorious, and adaptability is achieved through modularity.

Nearly every system on the Orion can be easily swapped out for a different or upgraded version with almost zero downtime. With Project Orion still in full swing those upgrades are becoming available at a steady pace.

Given the Orion’s revolutionary new power system it can support technology unlike any other ship before it. There are 7 major categories that attachments for the Orion fall under. Primary Weapons, Secondary Weapons, Aux Weapons, Armor, Shield, Energy, and Thrust.

Once researched a part can be freely attached or removed from its respective slot. The Orion’s power supply is immense but not infinite, so it’s up to you to decide the best way to distribute it between upgrades.

  • Gain access to more advanced weapons and equipment as you progress through the story
  • Choose from 7 different upgrade categories including weapons, armor, shields, and more
  • Balance your energy reserves against the power draw of the best upgrades
  • Upgrades are persistent, allowing you to replay missions with newly unlocked equipment
