After its seventh anniversary last year, there’s going to be a whole Year of War for Keen Software House’s Space Engineers.
The studio stated that their focus over the last few months has been on combat and skirmishes across the frontier. The Warfare 1 update brings with it refined combat, which includes hit, damage, and enemy indicators, along with improved reload and recoil animations. A set of new pistole and rocket launchers has been included, along with new settings for multiplayer servers. Tying everything together is a Uranium Heist PVP scenario.
As the Year of War marches on, improvements to ship combat will be made. In addition, there will be a number of new blocks to build futuristic fortifications in this open world sandbox game.
