Back to News Listing Starshatter v4.01 Released!

Posted: Tuesday, July 20, 2004 by Matrix Support

Type: Update

New Version of Innovative Space Combat Simulation Available Now!

Matrix Games (www.matrixgames.com) and Destroyer Studios are pleased to announce version 4.01 of the exciting new 3-D space combat simulator, Starshatter (www.starshatter.com). Released this month, Starshatter is the next generation in space combat simulation games.

Starshatter extends the gameplay concepts of the classic space sims by combining fighter and starship combat in a single game. You begin the game as either a fighter pilot or the commander of a small starship. As you progress through the game, you can earn promotions and awards until you are commanding a massive fleet carrier with three wings of fighters and a complete escort of warships.

The new update, version 4.01, includes 25 fixes and enhancements, including a new updated version of the built in Magic modeling software for mod-makers. Most important of the fixes are a resolution of a CD-key issue on some machines in the initial release and a fix for wingmen showing up as KIA on some campaign missions. On the new features side, there is now wide screen (1280 x 800) support and smooth scrolling side views in the cockpit camera mode.

We recommend that all Starshatter players update to this release, either by downloading the patch or re-downloading the new updated master file.

Starshatter integrates elements of real-time-strategy games by allowing fleet commanders to direct the battle on a tactical level, launching fighters and directing destroyers to defend the fleet and annihilate enemy forces. You will arm fighters for patrol or strike missions. You will send orders to your escorting destroyers and frigates to engage enemy starships or defend the fleet from attack by enemy fighters. You are the admiral, and you decide how to employ all of your forces in battle. It is all up to you.

Game Features:

  • Exciting and original science fiction universe.
  • Integrated fighter and starship combat.
  • Seamless blend of space combat simulation and real time strategy.
  • Dynamic campaign engine with four dynamic campaigns.
  • Easy to learn, difficult to master.
  • Highly replayable single player action, plus free multiplayer support*.
  • Cooperative and head-to-head multiplayer mission scenarios.
  • Extensive mod support – create your own ships, weapons, galaxies, and missions.
  • Includes full featured built-in mission editor.
  • Includes FREE 3D modeling program to create custom ship designs.
  • Choose from three different flight models: newtonian, relaxed, and arcade.
  • Choose from four different inputs: keyboard, mouse, gamepad, or joystick.

    * Multiplayer support includes free server browser. Local network access charges may apply.

    Downloads for Starshatter are available via the Matrix Games Members Area.
