Finnish sci-fi MMO Starbase has entered early access alpha on Steam

In the Russian sci-fi MMO Starbase Omega, players could build a space station and serve as the life of the station. Players could develop their characters by exploring different stations, collecting resources, shipping supplies, developing technologies, building rooms and creating new items. In the game, you can also build your space station to the limit, upgrade the basic buildings and create powerful defense systems.

Starbase Alpha is a science fiction MMORPG where you can explore planets, mine resources, develop a whole economy, and build your own base. You can also play as a space pirate and roam the galaxy doing anything from hunting down enemy ships to delivering random cargo to rich merchants who will reward you with unique items.

Perhaps you’re familiar with the sci-fi MMO Starbase, a game that takes place in the year 2283, where you control a group of soldiers who fight battles against an alien entity known as the threat. This is a fairly standard storyline for a game like Starbase, but this particular version takes place in a universe very much like our own. The game’s developers have dubbed it a “shared universe” MMO, and it maintains a strong similarity to our own even down to the languages spoken by the characters.


“The wait is ended, and early access is now available!” Frozenbyte, the studio behind Starbase, has made an announcement this morning, and it isn’t joking. The MMO-style space game was announced in 2019 and was supposed to launch in early access the following year, but it was postponed four times. Thankfully, the Finnish developer has finally succeeded.

“We are incredibly excited to launch Starbase in early access after more than a year in closed alpha,” the team says. “The game is still in an alpha stage as we are missing features and gameplay loops, but our vision is starting to come together and it’s time to open up the game to the whole community! […] The early access version of Starbase allows players to design, build & modify spaceships, explore the universe, form social connections, and earn money by mining, gathering, crafting and selling resources. The players can start building their home stations and begin the expansion of the Starbase universe.”

Frozenbyte says it plans to release two or three updates each month, which is about what it was doing before, and it’s already published a huge roadmap for players that goes through the end of the year; allegedly, capital ships and station siege mechanisms will be available this autumn.


Steam is the source of this information. Eggbert, cheers!


The sci-fi MMO Starbase Alpha has been in development since 2012 and has now entered early access! What sets this game apart from other sci-fi games is the addition of multiple roleplaying systems that enable you to shape your role in the Starbase universe. Each of these systems is designed to give players a different experience. The Refugee Fleet was introduced in 2016 as a way to allow players to shape the game world. You can be a Refugee Fleet Commander, a Refugee Fleet Pilot, and a Refugee Fleet Scientist – your character’s place in the Starbase universe will be unique to you and your actions..
