STAR SHIFT is a space combat/exploration simulation, although not just that.
Thou shalt be called to cope with space piracy, mercenaries and a looming threat for the whole known universe. Explore the universe, trade, build your reputation, fight amongst the stars and save your race from extinction!
Star Shift will have also FPS/third person-style sessions.
Explore the stations' indoors and abandoned ships, find out about the mysteries along your path and collect useful items. Follow the story or head off to space and earn some credit to buy new ships and upgrades. Star Shift is a an infinitely large universe, filled with unexplored areas, mysteries, opportunities and military actions.
The universe is at your fingertips—explore the unexplored! Become a smuggler, a bounty hunter, a pirate or a pilot of the Federation: that's up to the player's choice.
The universe of Star Shift allows you to make different choices that will allow you to have the tasks that best suit your reputation. But if you will follow the game's story, you will need to take legal actions and build your reputation. The missions you'll get will depend on how the rest of the universe looks at you.
When the first wormholes were identified in the year 2380, astrophysicist Carl Isack Morenbergy was the first to foresee their importance.
Thanks to the joint technology of all factions, the Earth was soon able to build the first space gate to exploit the wormholes in the galaxy.
Now there are more than five hundred gates that exploit the nature of wormholes. The gate channels and stabilizes the tunnel's natural energy to allow safe travel through them.
Now the known universe is governed by the U.S.F, a United Systems Federation organization, established by multiple races, but led by one: humans. Despite racial differences within the federation, it is experiencing a time of peace for almost a century.
On this world stage, you are Kaleb Delacourt, an extraordinary human space pilot whose personal code of independence has landed him on the inside of a few Federal prisons. Now a free man, Kaleb earns his living doing jobs that no one else wants to do. Unknown areas which few have returned from, dangerous asteroid fields, areas where very dangerous war's remnants are found, along with extremely valuable artifacts. Kaleb is the man who can find anything, anywhere.
During a goods recovery mission commissioned by an anonymous customer, an event that will change the balance of the entire universe occurs.
