Today at 16:00 GMT we launch a new server of Starborne: Sovereign Space, and this one is going to be epic. It’s a replay of the last map, Pocket Warfare, but with some balance changes and updated rules based on community feedback, to make it even more exciting. Make sure you’re ready to sign up as soon as it opens up, as spots are limited.

Pocket Warfare promises to be an exciting and strategic map. It revolves around Commanders competing for areas of high value. These valuable areas (pockets) contain ice, crystals, gas, metals and heavy ship assembly areas - making them hotspots for Commanders. There are 8 mysterious mechanisms that each give 3 victory points located between sectors and a single victory point at the center of the map. This is the second iteration of the Pocket Warfare series, below you can read what has been tweaked from the last one and an overview of the map.

Rule changes
