The art style in the video clips is very reminiscent of the Homeworld series, and I really like that style.

Unfortunately the two videos supplied don't give me enough information on the game itself, just that it is an RTS game on a world, and you have to salvage wrecks (and there may be some evil lurking nearby that will get you).

Also, I found that the Homeworld series had a great single player experience, but with this being a F2P, will there be a single player campaign (as those are quite expensive to produce)?

Anyway, without anything else to go by, I will keep an eye on it, but not spend any money on it as of yet.

I would guess that being FTP, it falls exclusively under the massively muliplayer experience, a la World of Tanks et al, but with possibly a persistent world (I dunno about WoT-does it have this?).

There will be a catalogue of wrecks to salvage, so I'm guessing these will be unearthed by the parent company (LMI) as regions unfold, and prospectors will be informed.

AFAICT, It's quite a unique worldframe.
