Flash-based space shooter celebrates four years in orbit.
Presents for everyone
DarkOrbit players didn’t fly away empty-handed on DarkOrbit’s 4th anniversary: Gift packs filled with valuable items such as X4 ammo, rockets, credits or fireworks were sent out into space for players to collect. The icing on the cake was the birthday galaxy gate which players could travel through to explore an unknown galaxy and take on a brand-new menace.
“DarkOrbit has been one of Bigpoint’s success stories these past four years” says Philip Reisberger, Chief Games Officer at Bigpoint. “It’s absolutely amazing how much enthusiasm long-term fans and newcomers alike have poured into the game, making it an exciting, action-packed online universe. We’ve got many surprises planned for the future – and the galaxy gate was just a taste of what’s to come.”
In the Flash-based game DarkOrbit, thousands of players fight for control over the galaxy’s resources in their 3D-rendered spaceships. The award-winning free-to-play browser game, which can be played in over 26 languages at www.darkorbit.com, is one of the most successful online games in Internet history.
