Edge of Space 1.0!!!
Hey ArkCoNauts! Can’t believe we’re really saying it, but here it is! 1.0!! Before you settle in for a 5 page read on the notes for this patch, we want to extend a heartfelt thank you from the team. This journey has been challenging, and at many times exhausting, and we wouldn’t be here today if not for the community and all the years of bug reports, play testing, and support from all of you. Today represents a huge milestone for the game, and for us as a studio, as we step out of Early Access and into the realm of post-release development. We can’t make it clear enough, we plan to stand by Edge of Space, and continue to actively develop new content and features for the game, as well as continue our track record of nuking bugs and issues from orbit. As long as the game sees support from our players, we’ll be here working as hard as ever to keep delivering. We hope to see players who haven’t picked up the game in a long while, return to give it another go, and that those who have been playing actively will still be surprised by what we’ve done since the last public patch at the end of June. We’d also like to give a special thank you to the testers who opted in to the pre-launch testing, and who have been incredibly helpful in getting the game ready for today! Given the sheer size of this patch, we fully expect that things will break, so please be sure to file in game tickets, or join us on Discord live chat for real time tech support help (or just to hang out!).
