About

Avorion is currently in Early Access, and under active development. If you want to know more about that, please read the Early Access disclaimer at the top of the page.

Several hundred years ago, a cataclysmic catastrophe nearly ripped your galaxy apart - an insurmountable ring of torn hyperspace fabric appeared in the center of the galaxy, which normal hyperspace engines can’t overcome.

Since this event nobody has managed to get near the central regions of the galaxy. All you know is that this event also spawned multiple insurmountable hyperspace rifts throughout the entire galaxy, and that a strange race of aliens, the Xsotan, has appeared in the center. It looks like these aliens have found a way to surpass the torn hyperspace fabric, but so far nobody has managed to establish contact with them.

There are also rumors about a strange new metal called ‘Avorion’, which has appeared in the center of the galaxy, around the same time as the Xsotan arrived. Apparently the aliens use this material to build their ships.

Start out as a nobody at the edge of the galaxy and work your way to the center of a galaxy that gets more dangerous, but also more rewarding the closer you get to its core. Avorion takes sandbox aspects from games like X or Freelancer, throws in co-op multiplayer and lets you build your own ships. It features ships made of freely scalable blocks that can be procedurally generated and that break into pieces where they're hit in space fights.CombatEquip your ship with chainguns, lasers and other weaponry to take on your enemies and enjoy the sight of completely destructible ships breaking at the exact points where you hit them. Defend your allies from pirates, hunt down enemies for coin or even participate in wars between entire factions. Build hangars and command squads of fighters in your battles or destroy enemy freighters to steal their cargo.ExploreFly through beautiful nebulas and dense asteroid fields in search of hidden treasures and meet the many factions that populate and control their portion of the galaxy. Each faction has its own characteristics, such as peaceful, intelligent or aggressive, and has its own ship styles, meaning their ships and stations have a distinct look.


Explore the galaxy at your own pace to find valuable goods in old ship wreckages, undiscovered asteroid fields rich of resources, unchartered asteroids which you can claim for yourself, or clues as to what happened during the event a few hundred years back.Build Your FleetThere are no limits to ship size or complexity besides your resources. You're not bound to the standard voxel style and while building an awesome ship in Avorion you won't get lost in lots and lots of micro-management. You can focus on building a great looking ship, without having too much trouble to make it work. But make sure you still keep an eye on your ship’s maneuverability and energy requirements. Adjust your ships perfectly to their operational purpose by building light and agile or heavily armored ships.


Build specialized transport ships with lots of cargo space or heavily armored battleships with strong shields. Collect loot from defeated foes which you can use to upgrade your ship: New turrets, resources, trading goods or system upgrades. Install system upgrades that allow more weapons, ease asteroid mining or trading systems which detect trading routes over multiple sectors.

And why build only one ship? Hire captains to fly your ships for you, manage your crews, weapons, hangars and fighters and build your own fleet of space ships!TradeExtend your ship with a cargo bay, find profitable deals and haul over a hundred trading goods through the galaxy to make a profit and buy your way up the food chain: Build up a trading corporation and extend your influence in the galaxy by founding asteroid mines and factories that attract NPC traders who will buy and sell their goods at your establishments.Co-op MultiplayerYou don't have to fight the galaxy alone! Avorion features co-op multiplayer, so team up with your friends to build stations together and destroy pirates and enemy factions! Work together to extend your influence in the galaxy and build your own empire. Or, you know, blow them apart in large PvP battles. It's a sandbox, you can do whatever you want.


In Avorion you choose your personal playstyle. Haul cargo, find profitable trading routes and found factories. Or maybe you're sick of being the good guy? Build your own battleship, equip it with powerful weaponry and blow away your enemies. Be the aggressor that starts wars with entire factions, raid freighters, smuggle illegal goods and scavenge old wreckages. Find your way to the center of a galaxy that gets more hostile, but also more rewarding the closer you get to its core.

Avorion reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Early Access Review So Avorion. How do I describe it .. Freelancer doesn't hit it, then Minecraft in Space. Roughly speaking, similar to the slightly older Title Starmade, I can build my own ' small-nothing Spaceships ' at Avorion, so to speak. Only the Avorion technically gets what engine and Programming at Starmade prevent. At the Beginning you have a Kind of Drone with two Mountain Lasers and off you go. We mine resources, of which there are 7 in total. As if there were Iron, Titanium, Naonit, Trinium, Xanion, Ogonite and, Most recently, Avorion, from whom the Game probably takes its Name. These Materials all have different Properties and Colors. Iron, for Example, is robust but has high Mass, which makes Ships armored well but sluggish. It also depends on the Material whether certain Modules are available at all ... Shield Generators cannot be built from Iron, but from better Materials, which are rather less suitable for This than Armour, etc. Furthermore, one can vary any Kind of Spaceship Components (Blocks) according to any size and Size, which is also directly reflected in its Properties. A Large Titanium Reactor brings more Energy than a small one made of Iron. The whole Components can be manipulated and put together by means of a very easy construction Mode (Editor) that can be operated almost intuitively. Right in Space without leaving the Game. You can also save your Ship designs and provided you have enough Money (InGame not Real!) and Resources on the high Edge it simply buy after based on the Blueprint. Nice Thing. In addition, the Ship needs crew, which can be easily hired at various NPC Space stations, which belong to different Factions. This allows the first rudimentary Later efficient ship Operation. (Without Guners, the Weapons shoot badly to not at all). Another successful Feature is the Modules. There are many of Them. Weapons such as Rockets, Lasers, Cannons .. I etc., etc., Or mountain Laser And Scrappage, to name a few. Passive Modules can also be installed in your Ship. How Many Built-in Bays you have depends, among other things, on the Mass of the Ship, the larger the more Built-in Bays (or on Modules that Grant bonus bays). Well! And where do I get the Modules and Weapons? Now, on the one hand, buy from NPC Stations or flying Dealers or self-commission and build on Space factories or from Wrecks that can be screwed apart Or simply with a little Luck as Prey gained from space battles. Great versatile ways to get rich and strong. And you also want to do that later at Ogonite or Avorion for the Super Duper Ship components. Because these Raw Materials exist only in the Center of the Universe, which is sealed off by a ' dead Space ' Ring shaped, through which one does not even come with an improved Hyperdrive. In order to get through there, you have to play * spoiler * almost a small Battle range and do certain Tasks or Shoot down bosses. The Space Struggle plays differently depending on how one has set up. A small Fast hunter has a lot of Action and fast Flight Interludes, but a Carrier probably counts more on his Fighter Squadrons and a Freighter probably better Hires some Escort ships. Where THESE NPC Companions can also consist of self-built Ships ... Very awesome! Whether you fight or prefer to flee, you can already make out from a Distance. As long as you are in a grey Iron Ship, thanks to your own Mass, you can hardly get out of the Popo as far as possible. The Colors of the Materials help to Assess the Danger As long as you are still out of the sensor range and cannot read out the Omicron value (Fighting Force) of the potential Opponent. And all this is even possible in Multiplayer I spin through:D Summary: Pro: Graphic: + (Stylish, fits) Handling Control: + (but also depends on the Design and Material of the Ship) Handling Ship editor: + intuitive, functional Sound:: + pleasant technique : + (clean and already quite BUG-free) Price: + totally appropriate for what you get Contra:? It is open to me that nothing comes of mind ... I rarely have that at a Game Ahh but there is one, or not. Planet. You play exclusively in Space. There are Systems and in which Asteroids. But no Planets. You don't miss them, either, though. Beautiful Programming Performance resulting in good Fun. Top! Keep it up. Buy! Have Fun.
