Fractured Space has some killer space combat going for itself, but it's been in early access on Steam for eight months, with packages ranging from $9.99 to $39.99. If you want to wait until the game goes free-to-play, though, you won't have too much longer to wait.
Edge Case Games has announced that Fractured Space will launch in full in late 2015, a date partially made possible by a new round of funding from UK's Mercia Technologies, which has contributed $1.3 million USD to the effort. Mercia previously invested in the popular F2P Soccer Manager, which has over 10 million registered users. The early access version of Fractured Space has already drawn 400,000 players.
Yesterday's July update for the game discussed some of the plusses and minuses of the most recent update, which included the gigantic Leviathan, more ranks for players, and better AFK detection. Of course, more changes are on the way, including a new ship, the Pioneer, and a matchmaking system, which was explored in detail earlier this month.
