Halcyon 6: Lightspeed Edition is out August 10th!

Hailing on all frequencies! The widely praised Halcyon 6 has been reworked, enhanced, and pushed to its limits by Massive Damage Inc. to create Halcyon 6: Lightspeed Edition; releasing on August 10th!

Halcyon 6: Lightspeed Edition brings the best version of the Halcyon 6 base game forward, combines it with every improvement released since the original launch, and adds a galactic fleet’s worth of new content to explore.

“The best part of working on Halcyon 6 is our supportive community who loves this game as much as we do! From the streamlined campaign, new officer classes, new powers, new UI, and many quality of life improvements, Halcyon 6: Lightspeed Edition drove us back to the drawing board to look over every aspect of the original game. We couldn’t have done it without our fans and that’s why we’ll be giving all of our existing players a FREE copy of Lightspeed Edition.” said Ken Seto, CEO of Massive Damage

Lightspeed Edition optimizations and features as follows:

  • Streamlined Campaign greatly speeds up progression and tightens the campaign to an action and adventure packed 12 hrs depending on your play style and pace
  • Streamlined All Systems for faster progression, including economy, starbase, resources, and officer levelling.
  • New Officer Progression System with 6 subclasses, 3 Prestige classes, new skill tree, and over 20+ new Prestige/Epic powers.
  • New Ship Loadout and Config screen will let you customize loadouts (and save them) for your ships just before entering combat
  • New Difficulty Mode called Vice Admiral and slightly increased difficulty across the board
  • Enhanced Combat includes 25+ new alien faction space combat abilities, more combos for both players and enemies, increased faction weaknesses and resistances, and other balancing tweaks
  • New UI Overhaul designed for greater readability and usability. Many quality of life enhancements to all areas of the game, too many to list here.

Introducing our new Community Manager, Jacqueline Joy

We’re stoked to announce that a new person is joining the Massive Damage crew!

Please welcome Jacqueline Joy on board as our new Community Manager. She will be responsible for creating awesome content for our social media channels and managing the needs of our growing player community. Her years of marketing and community building experience on indie games like Shuyan Saga and others will bring the perfect skills to compliment our small but growing team.

Of course, her skills don’t stop at the keyboard and Twitter; on her off time, you may find her yelling “HEROES NEVER DIE!” as she resurrects her allies as Mercy in Overwatch, or trapping enemies in the Ring of Frost as Jaina in Heroes of the Storm.

Jacqueline and our team will be at Gamescom this summer showing off Halcyon 6: Lightspeed Edition. This new fully loaded edition will be available in August and it will of course be FREE to all owners of Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander.

More details on Halcyon 6: Lightspeed Edition will be announced in the coming weeks ahead!
