Discover the Ships of DarkStar One

DarkStar One, Ascaron Entertainment's Space Opera, is firing its thrusters in preparation for a summer release.

Boasting a massive universe consisting of over 300 systems, DarkStar One delivers a wealth of sci-fi action and adventure. The various systems of DarkStar One are inhabited by 6 different races; Terran, Mortok, Raptor, Oc'to, Arrack and Thul. Each of the races have their own unique styles and technologies, as well as a variety of combat strategies.

"It's turning out to be the best game of its type that I've played." - IGN

DarkStar One plays host to over 80 ships, including a range of fighters, pirate vessels, cruisers, freighters, and weapons platforms.

"Should definitely be on the radar for fans of space games everywhere." - GameSpot

The diversity and intelligence of the races and space traffic within DarkStar One lends a uniqueness and unparalleled realism to the futuristic setting.

"With its combination of open-ended gameplay, complete ship customization and a truly massive universe, DarkStar One is a game that'll pull you in and keep you cruising the spaceways for dozens of hours." - DailyGame

This week sees the release of the Terran ship details - straight out of the Galactic Council Universal Library files - and is the first of a six part feature detailing each of the races and their ships.

DarkStar One will launch on PC DVD-ROM from Friday 11th August, 2006.
