Focus Home Interactive and Passtech Games announced today that it's working together again on a sequel to 2014's Space Run - Space Run Galaxy - which will be released on PC later this year.
Passtech are a one-man development studio that hopes to develop an “addictive” real-time spaceship construction and tower-defense strategy experience with Space Run Galaxy. The game will feature the same gameplay from the first game, but this time it'll introduce a persistent online universe with plenty of new additions.
“Set 20 years after the original game, Captain Buck Mann has now set up his very own intergalactic courier service. You're a member of Mann's team of space runners, racing to deliver precious goods from planet to planet.” said the developer in a press release sent to GameWatcher. “Reinforce your modular ships with armaments including laser turrets, missile launchers and energy shields, while leaving enough room for your cargo. Fly fast - the quicker you arrive at your destination, the better the rewards.“
Space Run Galaxy will contain 4 solar systems and over 50 zones to visit across more than a 100 runs.
Here's the full list of features:
User-created contracts - Take on contracts from other players for better rewards and unlimited replayability
Intergalactic player market - Trade hard-earned goods with your fellow space runners to sell off extra supplies, or snap up a tidy bargain
New corporations offer riskier jobs - Carry the extra fragile cargo of XenoPrime, or risk transporting The Force's highly dangerous weapon prototypes (which may even endanger your own ship!)
Fresh dangers await - Face off against brand new boss-type enemies, such as deadly pirate ships and huge space monsters...
Deep customization - Customize the shape and size of any ships you acquire during your adventure. There's no restriction for what ship you use in each mission, letting you get creative with every run!
Space Run Galaxy will be released exclusively for the PC later in 2016.
