Starfall Online Gameplay

Starfall Online is a tactical real-time cosmic battles simulator wargame that presents multiple opportunities to players who are interested in conquering the universe. This strategy allows choosing one of the factions — the Outcasts, the Avant-Garde and the Eclipse. After setting up the fleet, the player can move on and explore the procedurally-generated universe.

One of the main features of this MMO is a realistic physics engine that presents a multitude of tactical opportunities which allow players to utilize all kinds of battle manoeuvres, such as evading, ramming, crashing into each other and positioning on the battlefield. Spaceships have various modules that generate specific scenarios, such as self-destruction and warp jumps.

Starfall Online possesses detailed spaceship models that are built from individual parts. Each one of the spaceship’s modules can be destroyed in the battle, and in this case, some adverse effects will be applied. Destroying the armour and shield generators disables the ship’s defence, successfully hitting the guns makes the unit disabled for battle. These mechanics provide a variety of strategies that can be applied on the battlefield. Players are able to create their unique playstyles based on the mechanics offered.

Starfall Online provides players with a wide set of the customization tools. Every fleet can look even more unique with new details obtained during space exploration. New skins and variants become available after individual victories either in PvE or in PvP modes. There are hundreds of weapon types available in the game.

This tactical MMORTS features two game modes: PvE and PvP that are equally developed and supported by the game itself. Players can choose an activity that is best fit for their interests, as there are multiple ways to develop the fleet. They can travel to other planets and systems to gather resources and construct a significant scientific base by examining new elements and building drills. Or they can complete the tasks of merchants in order to gain more credits so that the resources can be purchased on the market.

PvP players can attack other players uncontrollably and eliminate them for their needs. Eliminated starships can be examined, and certain modules are available for capturing. If the player obtained the module, they could use it in building up new ships and upgrading them later. The game supports a full loot system, so victorious battleships become the owners of eliminated ship’s goods. Starfall Online has multiple PvP, and PvE modes, the difficulty and the type of mode determine the amount of the awards and their exclusivity.

Starfall Online offers more than 12.000 planetary and star systems for exploration. The story tells about the confrontation of three factions that spread their influence on the whole galaxy. Players can gather in parties in order to mine, craft new ship parts, fight against pirates, raid the space stations and caravans. Unlimited PvP also influences the allies, as they can also be attacked anywhere and anytime.
