Alpha 9 Launch Update
With April quickly approaching, our development team has been hard at work to finalize the changes coming in Alpha 9. Our objectives with this iteration are both to introduce emergent gameplay and have a smooth launch of the new servers. In order to meet this objective, we have decided to change the launch date of Alpha 9.
Alpha 9 Will Launch On April 15th, 2019
It was a difficult decision for us to change the launch date. However, we feel that this short delay will allow us to better adjust game play balance and finalize the plethora of new features in this iteration. We have taken a much more aggressive approach with Quality Assurance for Alpha 9 – both expanding our full-time QA team and working with our volunteer “Super Tester” group. This additional testing and feedback will allow us to have a more polished release with fewer server launch pains.
Alpha 9 is the final phase of development prior to the Beta release in Q4 2019. As such, we expect it to generate exciting stories and adventures – unlike any seen before.

As always, Fly Safe, Commanders!
