New event lets players obtain two legendary 20th century spacecraft of the USA and USSR

Star Conflict, the Sci-Fi MMOG by StarGem Inc and Gaijin Entertainment, now allows players to fly two legendary spacecraft of the 20th century: the Space Shuttle Endeavour and the Spiral Aerospace System. During the ‘Space Race’ event, which is part of the ‘Ancestral Heritage’ Update, players can obtain the blueprints and parts necessary to assemble the famous spacecrafts distinctive in humanity’s early endeavors to explore space.

While the American Space Shuttle Endeavour and the Soviet Spiral Aerospace System are visually almost indistinguishable from their historic predecessors, the space engineers of Star Conflict have introduced significant improvements. Now featuring plasma cannons and special combat modules, both spacecraft have become dangerous opponents even for the ships common to the fifth millennium.

The Space Shuttle Endeavour is perfectly suited for steadfast pilots and is able to function as a full-fledged Frigate-class warship capable of protecting its allies in combat. Taking advantage of its heavy armor protection, players can activate the Endeavour’s ‘Phase Demodulator’ module which forces enemies to focus their fire on it and away from other team members in the fleet, providing cover during a fight.

The Spiral Aerospace System will appeal to all pilots that like to rapidly change their tactics, as its two special modules allow it to function either as a single or two separate spacecraft. In its unified state, the Spiral is a potent Engineering vessel capable of assisting its allies in various ways, while in its separated state the detached module can, for a limited time, act as a very powerful interceptor.

Between April 27 and May 14 all participants of the ‘Space Race’ can earn Xenochips by completing special missions in PvP, PvE, Co-Op or Open Space battles. Players are able to exchange chips for parts to build and customize the legendary spacecrafts with weapons and decorative items at the in-game shop. After the ‘Space Race’ event, players will only be able to obtain parts via trade with other players.

An additional perk is the inventive writing, which manages an immersive, haunting atmosphere.
