The remaining missions will be released over the next few weeks and are all included with the game purchase; they are being released as they are finished.

Darkdawn: Encounters is a game of 3D, tactical starship combat. Captain frigates, cruisers, and battleships into combat with enemy fleets. Fight off multiple enemies as you angle your shields to meet the onslaught, and return fire with your own powerful weapon batteries. Outfit your ship with secondary armaments such as missiles and particle beams, and install advanced equipment, like engine boosters and the exotic overshield. Then take the battle to the enemy. Learn their strengths and, and blast them where their defenses are weak. Darkdawn: Encounters has been designed to provide deep, tactical space combat while still being streamlined for short play sessions and touch controls. You are a starship captain, and quick decisions will serve you better than twitchy fingers as you take command of a massive Rampart-class battleship. But make no mistake, this is no "tap and watch" game; it's your hands on the controls, captain. Darkdawn: Encounters features full 3D graphics, massive capital ship battles, and an amazing soundtrack by Matthew Fossa. BETA INFO: Darkdawn: Encounters is still in active development. Over the coming weeks, expect some balance changes and tweaks. At this stage we will be allowing players to retain campaign progress as new missions are released, though you will always be able to go back and replay older missions to check out any changes that might be made during beta.
