This features a focus on capital ships and the patched together hulks akin to Firefly and BSG instead of the fresh-off-the-production-line ships of other recent games.  

There will be random generated systems to explore and various factions to play with/against.  The trailer shows a few of the factions, which they say took some inspiration from Star Control 2.  

Trailer

Combat looks like it plays like a space version of a naval ship game, with firing arcs and talk of broadsides and control limited to a 2d access.   Equipment is being tied to a random drop ala "every game you've played with a random loot generator".  Campaign with a post-ending free-form sandbox mode.  

Coming 2015

Interesting that the Schaefer brothers have "broken up" after so many years working together.  And I wonder where that leaves Runic with no Baldtree either.  It really felt like they went dark after launching Torchlight 2 as it was.

As for the game, another space game at this point doesn't exactly get me excited, heh.

Well, the game sounds like it plays similarly to Assassin's Creed Black Flag's ship combat. Albeit, without any of the boarding.

So not sure if that's a good or bad thing. They replace gameplay with loot mechanics, and while loot is still fun to me, no amount of loot can make a boring game fun.
