Coordinate with Other Players in the New Team-Up or Die Update!

Independent development studio MercurySteam launched today Team-Up or Die, the third milestone in Spacelords’ Roadmap, adding demand-driven features meant to improve player communication in its coop games. This awaited update is now available for all PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows 10 and PC Steam players of MercurySteam’s Free to Play shooter.

The new Communication System introduces the figure of the Team Leader, who can issue orders to the rest of the team. Players can accept those orders, but can also propose other initiatives, and evaluate their leader’s performance with a “thumbs-up” at the end of the match.

Along with this new and useful communication tool, MercurySteam is adding another highly demanded feature to Spacelords: the Character Trial. Players can now play with unrecruited characters for a limited amount of time and decide if they want to acquire them before investing Gold –Spacelords’ in-game currency– in unlocking them. The character recruiting tiers have also been simplified, with players now being able to recruit 4 new characters instead of one after hitting a certain level.

“The arrival of Team-up or Die implies better communication between new players and veterans who can now mentor them,” commented Enric Álvarez, Game Director. “Spacelords’ players have also expressed their desire to try Characters before recruiting them, and we have made good to our word of listening to our community when adding new features to the game.”

We hope you enjoy these new features, Spacelords. See you on the Broken Planet!

Spacelords Identity Giant Update is Here!

Independent development studio MercurySteam launched today Spacelords Identity, the new game update for its free to play shooter Spacelords. This latest expansion adds a huge range of new content to the game, including the hotly awaited Space Shop.

The Space Shop offers a wide range of cosmetic customization for all the Spacelords character, making sure no two players will look the same in your games. Players can now acquire new skins for their favourite characters and their weapons, new emotes to express themselves as they battle for the control of the Broken Planet, and even a Space Disco to groove along their teammates in style!

“Identity is a step forward in Spacelords’ transition to the free to play business model, offering an exciting range of optional cosmetic items to the growing Spacelords community,” commented Enric Álvarez, Game Director. “This update is just the second milestone in our ambitious Spacelords’ Roadmap, and we will continue to add top quality content to Spacelords in the coming months based on the players’ feedback.”

Identity also adds much more than cosmetic upgrades to the game. The Adventure has been improved with the addition of monthly rewards, individual scores based on the player’s performance, and the new Featured Player highlight, that celebrates the most heroic deeds in the game.
