Miner Wars

Miner Wars - a combination of a single player & mmo! Set in 2081, you play as the captain of a space mining ship, where you can use the fully destructible environments to dig enormous tunnel, collect resources, and uncover alien secrets!
(Personally) The most interesting thing about this game is the unique mix between the single player story line and the option to play the game as an MMO!
The game has all the gameplay mods you'd need, singleplayer, co-op, and multiplayer.
Players will have to make due with what they find, fuel, ammo, oxygen. Everything in the game is destructible on a massive scale and it's persistent, so if you've got camper problems, blow them out of their cover! (Well, you can do that, or build an underground city or something.)

Colossal-Scale Destruction – Everything in Miner Wars 2081’s environment will be destructible and persistent—everything.
Deform the terrain, chip away at cover, and make things difficult for campers. Thanks to Miner Wars’ VRAGE™ engine, the environment can be used to absolute tactical advantage. Build bases inside gigantic asteroids, burrow shortcuts and kilometres-long tunnels through solid rock and make a silent pounce with the harvester drill.

6DoF / FPS in Space – The combination of 6DoF and first person makes Miner Wars an exciting and fast-paced battleground.
FPS veterans will feel at home with our 'WASD' mouse-and-key setup; and for space simulation fans, your beloved joysticks will ensure intuitive play and added advantage.

Skill-Based Game - Miner Wars is not about ‘grinding’ your way to level X.
Miner Wars is not about repeating mundane tasks or quests, leveling or experience points. Player skill and mental agility, creative and tactical cunning—in multiplayer an understanding of psychology and choosing which battles to fight or retreat from is a key aspect of gameplay.

Wide Variety of Ships – Choose the best ship for the job.
Each ship has its advantages and disadvantages; you will have to experiment to ensure the best craft for the particular mission. Upgrades and add-ons to your ship will also play a large role in outfitting the best possible vessel, be it a mining operation, a full-scale battle, exploration, stealth, or tunnelling.

Complex Dungeons in Space – Seamless transition between outdoor and indoor environments.
Enter large asteroid bases and space stations full of enemies Players will also be able to battle each other in these indoor areas and engage in some truly intense multiplayer battles.

Ship Upgrades - Every ship can be upgraded with a wide variety of equipment, weapons and augmentations.
Armour plating, storage space, engine boosts (in both speed and economy), radar systems, maneuvering-thrusters, mining tools, and myriad others on offer.

Mining and Exploration – Players are encouraged to explore and harvest.
There are many elements, compounds and materials to be mined from asteroids and sold for ‘Credits’, or used in various ways. Some of these are extremely rare and valuable. Exploration is also a key element of the game, finding items and credits which can be spent on weapons, upgrades, tools, etc.

Epic-Scale Battles – The VRAGE™ engine allows up to 300 ships to be displayed in a sector at once.
The variety of weapons, 300 ships and the size of the sectors allow for some colossal battles.

Looting – Any destructible ship in the game can be looted by another player.
Looting is a vital part of the Miner Wars experience. When a player decides how they will pursue another, by disabling the engines rather than simply obliterating them with missiles will result in a higher proportion of the items and equipment items in their inventory.
It’s important to always be careful of what you carry in your inventory, lest you have it stolen or lost.

Factions - In the Miner Wars Universe there will be dozens of factions.
Each faction will have different approaches and motivations throughout the story-world—from miners to fanatics, privateers to nations. In Miner Wars 2081 the player is a part of the EAC – Euro-American Confederation. But there are other factions too: Fourth Reich, OmniCorp, People’s Republic of China, Arab Islamic Empire and more.
In the up-and-coming Miner Wars MMO, players will be able to choose to join a faction, or form a corporation, complete with shares and leaders.

Combination of Single and Multiplayer Elements – If a mission is too difficult, you can simply hire a friend to help you on your mission or quest!

Now the game isn't coming out anytime soon, it will be released sometime after the singleplayer, but it will be buy to play (the developer guarantees that it will stay like that for at least two years), you can pre-order it now for half the price.

And as usual, (you know how this goes) Here are a few screenshots and videos!

Check out the game at the developers site Miner Wars

Thank you for your time, I hope you'll enjoy this game (whenever it comes out),

It's just like any other MMORPG, level up, get epic gear, own people. Plus, it does have some sort of a backstory as well.

Anyone used the bot on this site before, how was/is it? By the looks of it, its just macros, or limited pixel recognition. Would rather stay away from injection bots. Is there anything that actually works in eve online?
