announces the addition of a new Station Conquest mode to this Windows, Mac, and Linux space combat MMORPG, a new gameplay system that allows groups to take over space stations using coordinated attacks. The system is now live, and there are plans to expand it over the coming months "to allow surrounding territory to be held for the benefit of the station." Full details follow.
Multiplatform Space MMO Vendetta Online has recently released a new Station Conquest feature into their evolving game. This new gameplay mechanic allows groups of players to coordinate their attacks on a particular station, seizing control of it through the disabling of defense turrets, and taking direct ownership via a new "key" based hierarchical authentication system. Owner keys may then be distributed to other leaders, while various User keys may be generated and given to those needing only more limited types of access. The entire conquest system will be expanded over the coming months to allow surrounding territory to be held for the benefit of the station, while automated drones may be manufactured to mine ores and minerals within the conquered regions and provide for the finances and defense of a given station. In this way, large groups of players may conflict with one another over territorial gains and losses, while also running amok of established NPC factions and the Hive.
