Miner Wars 2081 is a 6DOF action-survival space-shooter simulation-game set in the year 2081, 10 years after the destruction of all planetary objects in the Solar System. The gameplay is driven by an epic story and offers a choice of single player, co-op, and death-match multi-player. The story will introduce you to many types of missions: rescue, exploration, revenge, base defense, theft, transportation, stealth, search and destroy, pure harvesting, racing, or just flying around and destroying everything you see. Miner Wars runs on the VRAGE engine, built and tailored specifically for the title.
Prague, Czech Republic, November 28th – The wait is over. Keen Software House just released Miner Wars 2081, the most anticipated 6DOF survival space simulation shooter. Miner Wars 2081 is now available worldwide through all major digital channels, including Steam, GameStop, GamersGate, Desura and www.MinerWars.com
Miner Wars 2081 is a 6DOF (six degrees of freedom) action-survival space-shooter simulation-game set in the year 2081, 10 years after the destruction of all planetary objects in the Solar System. Player operates an advanced mining ship in a fully destructible and open-world environment, which remains persistent as he completes missions or plays online with others. Realism and survival are key aspects of gameplay.
“From day one, I have been pushing myself and everyone in the team to make the best 6DOF (six degrees of freedom) gaming experience of our lives and I'm incredibly proud of my team and our supportive community. Together we have achieved this goal.” said Marek Rosa, CEO and Creative Director of Keen Software House, author of Miner Wars 2081.
We tried to push boundaries of innovation on many fronts - first by developing our own voxel engine VRAGE, allowing us to present fully destructible and persistent environment, set in an open world area containing the whole Solar System, then by polishing intuitiveness of the game controls. We believe that good gameplay starts with immersion and you achieve that only if the game reacts exactly how player expects it.
Miner Wars 2081 is just the first piece in what we want to become a large Miner Wars universe. In this first title we focused on the journey of two brothers, Marcus and Apollo Rainier. Trying to uncover what they expect to be a groundbreaking discovery leading to ancient times, they travel through the whole Solar System, visit vastly different sectors, and cooperate to fight with warring factions. In a desperate attempt Apollo is forced to seek the help of the dark side – The Fourth Reich. We believe that players will enjoy the immersion and story, which is supported by heavyweight musical lineup and professional voice acting.
“Releasing Miner Wars 2081 is the culminating point of my work in the last three years. I am very happy that now I can start focusing on our next projects. I am full of ideas and Miner Wars 2081 just scratched the surface of what can we achieve with our in-house engine - VRAGE. Miner Wars MMO will blow your minds; Also I can’t overlook that the community demands for the continuation of the story and gameplay introduced in Miner Wars 2081.” said Marek Rosa as he jumps in excitement.
“I personally want to thank to our community for supporting as for all these years, keeping our forums troll/hater-free and especially for helping us to get through Steam Greenlight” said Marek Rosa.
6DOF (six degrees of freedom) games are back baby!
Miner Wars 2081 is also available in retail stores in Czech and Slovak Republic. Players may expect an update with Czech localization.
