50 million users sign up; £50,000 up for grabs.


Bigpoint’s action-packed space shooter, Dark Orbit, has today reached 50 million users having launched a little over four years ago. To celebrate this achievement a host of new features have been introduced, including a monthly quest to win up to £10,000.

New features:

·         Once a month you have the chance to win up to £10,000. The player who wins the Jackpot battle receives all the Jackpot pounds they collect from bonus boxes, which will be paid out in cold, hard cash

·         15 new quests will be playable in the next few days

·         The new group gate can be explored together with friends to get even better loot (but it’s more difficult, too)

·         The new NPC robot “1100101” is out of control, spawning around the galaxy and fighting the players

DarkOrbit is a flash-based browser game in which thousands of players from all over the world fight for control of the universe and the precious resources that lie within. Users can explore the infinite expanses of outer space and fly into the face of danger. Players can travel to the farthest reaches of space, either on their own or with others, and set a course to discover new galaxies and lifeforms. Gamers can join one of the three DarkOrbit companies in their struggle to gain control over the universe, preparing for battle by transforming their simple Starjet into the Universe’s most feared battlecruiser.
