Alpha 3.0 – Docking and Outfitting

Alpha 3.0 is out now!  With Alpha 3.0 players can now dock into the famed Coriolis and outfit their ship or purchase a brand new Cobra Mk III.

  • Outfit your ship with new modules such as heat sinks, cargo scanners and a variety of weapons
  • Upgrade your weapons and repair any damage using the credits you have earned from the locations
  • Clear bounties earned when committing crimes
  • And once you have saved enough credits, you can purchase the most well known ship in the galaxy – the Cobra Mk III, a firm favourite from the Faulcon De Lacy shipyards

Death now has a price, so retreat is an option to be considered; it is more economical to repair a damaged ship than to replace it, so choose your fights wisely!

Take a look at docking in action!
