Calling all Spacers,

Earlier this week, after a productive series of beta phases, we launched the full Space Junkies experience on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Windows Mixed Reality and PlayStation VR.

But this is just the beginning! Already at this early stage, we have been keeping a close eye on your impressions and feedback, for which we are very grateful! We are taking your feedback on board and intend to address as much of it as possible as we continue to support the game with regular updates.

With that in mind, we are very pleased to share with you some updates on the game’s post-launch development, both in the short and the long term!

April 2019 Updates

Early next week, we will be deploying a patch which includes some minor bug fixes and balancing adjustments. More detailed patch notes will be shared closer to the date.
This patch will be followed by a free content update in the middle of the month.
Please be aware that you will be required to install these updates as they become available in order to continue playing online.

Features in development

As I write this, the development team in Montpellier is hard at work to bring the following to the game later on in the year:

  • New game modes
  • New maps
  • New characters
  • And more!

For the PlayStation VR players among you, we’re happy to confirm that PS Move support is in the works!

Known technical issues

We are aware that some of you are using keyboard LED controller software that is being flagged by Easy Anti-Cheat, leading to issues when attempting to launch the game. Rest assured that this issue is already under investigation, and we hope to address it soon.

Meanwhile, we have deployed a fix for another EAC-related error that some PC players have been experiencing.

In-game currency clarification

We thought we’d clarify the game’s currency system to avoid any confusion.
Let us be very clear off the bat: Space Junkies has no microtransactions!
The game does feature loot boxes, but the only way to earn them is to level up (i.e. just by playing the game). Every time you receive an item that you already own from a loot box, the duplicate item is converted into currency that can be spent in the in-game store.

And that’s it for now! We’re very excited to be bringing these new features and content to you, and we can’t wait to share more details in the near future.
Thank you very much for your input until now; we hope you continue to enjoy your time with Space Junkies!
