Kixeye has announced the official launch of its latest game, VEGA Conflict, on Facebook and browsers. The game is the first to come from Kixeye Australia, formerly 3 Blokes Studios. Kixeye resurrected the studio in June 2012, after RockYou closed it a few months earlier.

VEGA Conflict is a massively multiplayer online real-time strategy title (MMORTS) that takes players to outer space as they work to construct warships with advanced armor and weapons before attacking other players’ bases and enemy cargo ships in a hunt for valuable resources.

In VEGA Conflict, players have been abandoned in a struggling mining vessel by the massive VEGA federation, which promised untold wealth for outer space miners, but instead took every resource for itself. Players must fight back against the empire by attacking enemy vessels and mining every resource they can find, using those materials to repair and expand their base, and construct new ships and tools.

VEGA Conflict features real time, synchronous player-vs-player battles between multiple living players all around the world, and players can create or join cooperative alliances with others in their same in-game sectors. Finally, monthly events or contests will see players competing against others for their share(s) of the loot.

VEGA Conflict is now available to play for free on Facebook. It has already climbed to over 500,000 monthly active players, according to AppData, our tracking tool for mobile and social apps and developers. The game is supported via microtransactions, giving players the ability to purchase instant repairs for damaged ships, or instantly build new structures, as examples.
