We are excited to announce our second installment in the Warfare series!
Space Engineers Warfare 2: Broadside delivers new blocks, enhanced gameplay mechanics, and a reimagining of warfare in Space Engineers. Ship battles will never be the same!
Guided by community feedback, Warfare 2: Broadside expands and improves vehicle combat in Space Engineers. Your creations, machinations, mods, stories and visions of the world of Space Engineers helped drive vision of war. Today, we deliver one our biggest updates ever!
Warfare 2: Broadside offers new ways to engage with the world of Space Engineers, both on planets and in space. Defending against pirates, assaulting a freighter, lunar tank battles, or a breakneck dogfight through the canyons of Pertram, we believe this update will change the way you play.
As with our previous updates, this DLC and update will be released on all supported platforms simultaneously. We want you to enjoy Space Engineers on your platform of choice!
While war is the theme, we mustn’t forget that this is Space Engineers, and thus “building and creativity” remains the center of the Space Engineers universe.
With this update, we are introducing a series of quality-of-life improvements as well as entirely new mechanics.
A true rework of engineer-based combat could hardly be called complete without an arsenal of specialist weapons, suited for every battlefield condition.
Included in this massive update is a staggering array of new weapons! From massive battleship cannons, like the Artillery Turret, Assault cannon, or Autocannon, you have never had so much firepower at your fingertips. Already introduced, the devastating Railgun. Featuring an incredible 2k range, and potent depleted uranium sabot, the railgun can be mounted on either large or small grid vehicles allowing for truly versatile designs.
While firepower may be the focus, we have not forgotten our engineers. Warfare 2 delivers a new series of cosmetic DLC visions of iconic Space Engineers blocks. Hangar door variants, new variants of the classic Rocket Launcher and Gatling Gun, an incredible new reactor and a modular Ion Thruster variant that is sure to impact design choices for years to come.
Warfare 2: Broadside simply wouldn’t be complete without a custom battlefield for combat testing. The “Asteroid Armory” is a prebuilt conflict zone. Go solo and engage in a bit of piracy! Join the Red faction, take command of Big Red, and hunt cargo ships! Use the Asteroid Armory as a weapons test platform, blasting everything in sight! This “showcase” provides a testbed for the new weapons as well as access to both of the iconic red and blue ships!
This update features a comprehensive overhaul of vehicle, base, and grid combat. Several of big changes went into making Space Engineers combat more rewarding, consistent, and compelling.
These changes include the all new “Target Lock” system, weather improvements, armor penetration mechanics, beacons as jump targets and of course, ammo and tank detonations. Now, planning the location of hydrogen stores or ammo stockpiles is more important than ever before. A carefully placed shot could cripple your vessel so plan accordingly!
In addition to this series of quality-of-life changes and improvements we have also made a large number of community requested changes to the modding API. These changes open the door to new possibilities from our modding community. We are excited and can’t wait to see what the community comes up with next!
Warfare 2 doesn’t just focus on the combat though, it also includes new blocks to outfit your base, space station, or fortress. Prepare your defense or lay siege like never before!
Similar to our previous major releases, we hope you will take this opportunity to support the continued development of Space Engineers. This DLC pack consists of cosmetic items that enrich your game visually. None of the features in this package provide any advantage to players who purchase this DLC.
The price of the Warfare 2: Broadside Pack is $3.99 USD. Show your continued support for Space Engineers and check out the Warfare 2: Broadside Pack.
This update includes both free features as well as the option of paid DLC. Functional items that directly impact game mechanics are always offered as a free upgrade. Cosmetic upgrades are included as paid DLC content. This is how we structure all of our major DLC releases and we hope you enjoy it.
