Rise of Giants is a new content update for Star Conflict on Linux, Mac and Windows. Since StarGem Inc. and Gaijin Entertainment announce the release. Including a PvE-focus for the online space action game on Steam.

This is also a sizeable update introducing new and challenging PvE scenarios with scaling difficulty levels. As well as the new co-op story campaign “The Price of Trust”. Where the story develops based on the decisions and actions of the players. Since I have not played the game for a while, the new content update adds a further challenge.

The PvE missions ofStar Conflict are now in two major types:

  • UMC Missions are varying PvE scenarios with a scaling difficulty level. Available by the in-game Unified Mercenary Center. Completing UMC Missions yields “Insignia”, which players can spend to improve attack and defense of their fleet as well as to unlock new levels of PvE scenarios. The more experience the player gains and the better his fleet becomes. Then the more difficult and rewarding the PvE scenarios will be.
  • Deadly Challenges are high-difficult, high-yield missions which require a powerful fleet and well-coordinated teamwork. They will offer a challenge even for veteran pilots. So it is a good idea to prepare for them with the new UMC Mission system.

The new co-operative PvE story campaign “The Price of Trust” sees players challenged with the rescue of an Ellydium Corporation Dreadnought. A massive warship stranded in the depths of space in the claws of fierce pirates. The development of the plot is based on player decisions. With one of the many varying arcs eventually resulting in an epic face-off with an enemy dreadnought.

The campaign can be played in regular mode, or completed as a “Deadly Challenge”, where enemies are stronger, more cunning and more plentiful.

The games new Destroyer:

Other additions of the “Rise of Giants” Update include a new Destroyer, the Ellydium’s “Ze’Ta”, which is partly constructed from Alien crystalline substance allowing it to create a swarm of crystal drones in battle. Those drones have varying uses and can for example be ordered to attack on their own or form a living, defensive shield around the player.
