About Star Control: Origins & Fleet Battles Mode

Star Control: Origins is a science-fiction adventure game set in an open universe that places you as the captain of Earth's first interstellar vessel on a mission to find allies to help save humanity from certain annihilation. 

The beta unlocks the Fleet Battles feature, where you'll assemble ships in a fleet and engage in battle with fleets controlled by either the computer, humans via the Internet, or even friends sitting at the same PC.

You can literally design your own ships to use in combat using the Ship Crafting system, or you can download ships designed by others to play with. Ship Crafting not only allows you to decide what weapons and defenses a ship has, but allows total control of how a ship looks.

Check out CEO Brad Wardell's guided tour to the beta here!
