Experience a Darker Empyrion in The Dark Faction DLC!
Posted on January 9th, 2024 10:05 AM EST
Today, we’re absolutely thrilled to announce that Dark Faction, our most ambitious project yet, arrives on February 6!
This DLC is priced at $9.99 / €9.99 and therefore, it contains by far the most content we’ve ever made for the game at once.
In this first ever DLC for the game, you will discover a terrifying threat to the entire galaxy: an almost indestructible organism driven to spread and take over any life it touches. Plunge into an intense survival story from the moment you enter the world.
We developed this scenario with both new and veteran players in mind. The new player experience provides an easy way to learn the basics of the game while setting up the new story. If you want to experience the new content on an existing character but without the story, you can do that too.
A New Story (requires new character): Wake up on a derelict ship and discover what has befallen the crew. Uncover the secrets of the Dark Faction and how to stop its spread across the galaxy.
Dark Faction Planets: Explore a new and deadly environment that’s spreading across the galaxy.
Dark Faction Building Blocks: Expand your creativity with a new set of organic building blocks.
New Devices: Craft new powerful devices such as the Translocator, Phase Shield, and Corrupted Shield.
Updated Melee Combat: We’ve updated melee combat, which plays a large role from the beginning of the scenario.
In addition, we’re delighted to announce that we’ve partnered with Funcom for marketing duties on our future projects. That goes for Dark Faction... and beyond.
Funcom’s previous publishing record includes Shiro Games’ Dune: Spice Wars and The Outsiders’ multi-award winning Metal: Hellsinger. They are also the developers of the open world survival game Conan Exiles.
With Funcom taking care of marketing, we’re free to focus entirely on development, and as you will see with Dark Faction, this has given us the opportunity to raise the bar for both the quality and quantity of our content.
We want to thank you all so much for your support. Being able to release a DLC of this size and scope is a big milestone that we couldn’t have achieved without your support over the years. We look forward to entering this new chapter for Empyrion with all of you.
The Dark Faction begins to spread on February 6.
