Pirate Galaxy is a Science Fiction Role Playing MMO Game.
Pirate Galaxy is a free to play, browser-based, massively multiplayer online game set in the distant future. There are two ways to play Pirate Galaxy: Either directly in your web browser or in a stand-alone game client.
Surface Mode You start the game on the surface of Vega 2 and you should familiarise yourself with the gameplay there, as all the missions play out on planet surfaces. This is where combat occurs, missions are completed and energy as well as Cryonite can be collected.
A planet’s orbit is somewhat similar to a building’s lobby. Here, you can examine and select missions or even prepare fleets for those missions. If you feel you need to take a break from fighting the Mantis, you can escape to orbit and recharge… until your next encounter…
Space Stations Space stations give you the opportunity to augment your ship with new equipment. Once you’ve obtained blueprints for the desired upgrade, space station technicians would be pleased to install it – in exchange for Cryonite crystals, of course. You can also purchase entirely new spacecraft, provided you have enough crystals. As different species own and operate the space stations, the craft designs and capabilities vary from station to station – keep an eye out for the best deals!
Star Map Mode: To leave the first planet’s orbit, you need to look at the star map. Here, you can see all the planets, moons and star gates (more on these later) in the current system.
The route to all of these objects is ascertained by sending a probe – it will make its way to and back from the object, ensuring the route is free and safe. Once the probe returns, you can make your way to that object uninhibited.
Star Gates Once you’ve completed all necessary story missions in a system (marked yellow), you can use the star gates to move to the next star system.
Pirate Mode Pirate mode is unlocked after you have completed the first few levels in the game. When you switch to this mode, you can attack – or be attacked by – any other pirate player on the surface of a planet. To switch to this mode, simply click on the skull in the middle of the panel at the top of the screen. After a short delay, you’ll be a pirate!
Conquest Mode: Priate Galaxy gives you the option to join fleets (similar to Guilds). As a member of a fleet, you can take part in interplanetary conquest – taking control of planets and all that comes with them.
When a planet is available for conquest mode, competing fleets may conquer the planet by capturing – and holding – a number of strategic locations on the planet. The fleet that holds these points the longest has conquered the planet.
A conquered planet brings the victorious fleet a bonus – equivalent to the Mantis’ Cyronite in that star system and a smaller amount in surrounding systems.
