Product Information

Being the only game of its kind, the all encompassing Universal Combat game is in need of a makeover, and the sales of this DLC will hopefully make that happen.

Due to the massive scope of the game, we decided to improve on the game via DLC releases. This means more frequent updates in the months to come. For example, this first DLC, contains no new gameplay features. It focuses purely on bug fixes, tweaks, as well as UI, engine, art and visual improvements.

As these games are developed using a suite of custom game engines, they cannot be ported easily to third-party game engines (e.g. UE4, Unity, Lumberyard etc) without a LOT of work. So for this first 3.0 iteration, we’re going to be porting it to use the more improved space and planetary terrain engine and art/model assets used in the All Aspects games. Also, ALL the major 3D assets (ships, vehicles, stations, planetary bases, weapons, character models etc) are going to be replaced with all-new versions.

If successful, we plan future DLC which may include multiplayer (like the original 2004 game), new features, content etc.

This DLC is a major upgrade to the Universal Combat CE v2.0 (2015) version. It is currently in development via Steam Early Access and can only be purchased on Steam at this time.

This DLC is Early Access content, and is NOT YET COMPLETED. By purchasing it, you gain access to the current version as it goes through development. You can keep track of the game’s progress via the Steam news and discussions pages.
