Frozenbyte Games has put out a new trailer for Starbase, an upcoming voxel and "vertex"-based space MMO coming to Steam early access later in 2019. The focus is on "building and designing spaceships and stations, exploration, resource gathering, crafting, trading and combat". It will also include a sandbox mode so it can be experienced solo or in small groups.
Set in a universe of vast scale and detail, the fully-destructible environment and hybrid voxel/vertex-based game mechanics enable simulations in the game at immense depth; minor collisions may break a few outer plates from your spaceship, while fast-speed crashes can rip the ship apart.
The scale and depth of the simulation in all aspects of the game gives players the ultimate freedom to exploit their innovativeness and creativity – the building blocks of success in Starbase. From constructing single spaceships with durable outer platings to creating massive automated factories and designing electricity and data networks, the players are free to do it their own way.
You can learn more on the Starbase Steam page.
