Dark Orbit

Supernova in sector IV-PrL!

Red alert! We just detected the birth of a supernova on the outer edges of deep space. A burst of radiation is sweeping across the universe & is expected to hit at midnight!

Brace for impact! Once it hits, it'll play havoc on your electronic systems & make your enemy detection system completely unreliable.

Don't let it play tricks on you. Trust your instincts and play it safe out there.

Shatter the Orbit with three new mines.

- EMP-M01: uncloaks enemy ships.
- SAB-M01: does 50% damage to all shields.
- DD-M01: causes 20% direct damage (based on a ship's base HP & upgrades).

Adding to this our scientists figured out a way to reduce all mines cooldown to 30 seconds, instead of 60 seconds!

Now you see them, now you don’t …

The company heads had our scientists work day & night but it paid off! Gone are the days when you had to worry if your ship had enough cloaks left!

We proudly present:
the new Cloaking CPU XL – cloak your ship 50 times!
(But don’t worry – the old Cloaking CPU is still there & with 10 charges as effective as ever.)
