New info about the Open Beta
04/20/2022 - Flying Wild Hog today revealed what his horde of rogues and misfits can expect from Space Punk`s open beta launch patch when the game becomes free-to-play for all on April 20.
Space Punks was developed by Flying Wild Hogs Krakow Studio and is a top-down action role-playing game (ARPG) set in an irreverent sci-fi universe, in which players pave their way to fame and fortune by making easy money in extremely dangerous ways. The Cracked One open beta update gives players old and new the chance to dive into the game`s revamped core, including a new "Get-A-Job" feature designed for easy quickplay. In addition, the update includes a smoother crafting system that gives player access to tools for even greater chaos in the Space Punks universe early in their space careers.
"The Crack" brings the highly anticipated end-game content
In addition, "The Crack" introduces Space Punk`s highly anticipated end-game content . In an endless dungeon mode set deep in the black hole called "The Crack," players jump from one dimension to the next as they explore the unknown and attempt to reach infinity. The dimensions come in two varieties: Ordinary Dimensions, in which players:in must kill a certain number of enemies to advance to the next dimension, and Milestones, in which players must find and kill the area boss to continue the game. The update also introduces a number of important bug fixes and improvements beyond the launch of the open beta.
Micha? Kuk, head of Flying Wild Hog`s Krakow studio and game director of Space Punks, said, "The launch of Space Punks Open Beta is another big step for us in the ongoing development of the game, and we`re looking forward to talking about all the new content we`re offering to players old and new. The launch of "The Crack" is the first stage of end-game content that our Early Access community has been waiting for so long. Along with the revisions to the primary gameplay loop, The Cracked One update represents the completion of the central "core" of Space Punks. We still have a lot planned to add to the game during Open Beta and beyond, so keep your eyes peeled!"
Phil Mansell, CEO of Jagex, said:"Space Punks has gone from success to success over the course of Early Access, and we`re thrilled to be working with Flying Wild Hog to bring more players into the crazy galaxy they`ve created. The dedication with which they have translated feedback from the Early Access community into a unique gameplay experience reflects what Jagex strives for with its own "Living Games" philosophy, and we look forward to supporting Flying Wild Hog and Space Punks during Open Beta and beyond."
The Cracked One update is the fifth major update since Space Punks launched on the Epic Games Store Early Access on July 14, 2021. With the launch of the Open Beta, Space Punks will become a free-to-play game, which means even more fortune hunters than ever will have the chance to get in on the action and chase sweet, sweet galactic glory. Those who want to further support the game`s development and look good doing it can purchase a Founders Pack on the Epic Games Store.
