Edge Case Games is hard at work on their tactical space combat game, Fractured Space. While the game will see a full free to play release later this year, current access is restricted to Founder's Packs purchasers and those lucky enough to snag a key somewhere or take part in a free access weekend.
This weekend, Fractured Space will be offering a free access weekend from today (April 17th) until Monday April 20th. If you take advantage of the free access, you'll also unlock access to the game for you forever...or at least for as long as the game exists. The game's Founder's Packs will also be discounted by 25% this weekend in case you decide you want the extra goodies after playing the game a bit.
Fractured Space is team-based space combat fought in gigantic capital ships with the intensity of a shooter and the big-picture-thinking of a strategy game. Fractured Space is currently available for PC on Steam Early Access.
Fractured Space has also just released an update that adds in Squadron Combat (small ships that can be sent out of your capital ship to attack, defend, or board other ships), new ships, and new Presence Boosts.
