Instead, it takes you down a revenge mission, putting you on a collision course with an evil corporation. But there’s a catch, you still have numerous customizable and heavily armed spacecraft. Although this is single-player combat, you still have the arsenal to take you through the hostile path amidst enemy ships. But if you don’t want to go it all by yourself, you have an option. You can get the best out of the opportunity of its cooperative gameplay, where you can team up with other players. Work together with up to five players, build an army to reckon with and tackle enemies together.
