Edge Case Games has announced that their 5v5 space MOBA Fractured Space is officially leaving Alpha and heading into Beta on September 15th.

Fractured Space has been in Alpha on Steam’s Early Access for almost two years and has been quite successful, growing from a bare bones game to a fully-fledged game with over 20 full customisable ships, with customisable load outs and crews. Designed with the intensity of a shooter and with the big picture thinking of a strategy game, you command gigantic capital ships in pitched battles against other players, having successfully attracted over 600,000 players with open development where developers will often talk to the players.

If you are lucky enough to have a PAX West ticket then head on over to the Fractured Space booth, chat to the developers or have a go at the game yourself and find out what is going to happen, as there will be a big reveal of some finer details of the upcoming launch.

Official Press Release

Edge Case Games, developers of the team-based space combat game, Fractured Space, today revealed the game is scheduled to officially launch in beta on September 15, 2016. More details on the launch will be revealed at PAX West in Seattle from September 2–5, with media and community members invited to attend, play the game, and meet the team.

After two successful years in Early Access, where the game has evolved from a bare bones team match to a fully-fledged game with over 20 ships, customizable ship load outs to affect ship capabilities, selectable crew members that influence bonuses, a balanced free-to-play economy that seeks to provide great value to all players, and soon, even more features set to roll out at launch.

This is a nice game thats come a long way, but I feel it needs some more 'oomph' or excitement to attract the crowds. Even copying some more common MOBA mechanics like spawning creeps (smaller ships) the constantly attack the enemy, or something else to make it more engaging.
