Will the beta be extended with additional content up until release?
Yes, we will be adding more content to the beta throughout its duration. For more information, we recommend frequenting our official channels and the Spacebase Startopia Steam Beta Community Hub:

Will there be updates/fixes and/or server maintenances throughout the course of the beta?
We plan to update the beta frequently and do not foresee any server downtime.
To be as flexible as possible and adapt to ongoing feedback and bug reports, we have avoided a set schedule for updates to the beta.

How long will the Spacebase Startopia beta run?
The beta will be active from 29th May until the full release of the game in 23rd October 2020.

I want to share screenshots or videos from the beta, can I do this?
Yes! There is no NDA or restrictions on which content can be shared, so feel free to share anything and everything.

What should I do if I encounter a bug?
Please report all bugs by pressing ‘F11’ when you are in game. Additionally, you can head to the exclusive Spacebase Startopia Steam Beta Community Hub and log your report via the bug report section. This will be regularly checked by Realmforge Studios, the developers of Spacebase Startopia.

If you need to contact our support team directly, you’re welcome to send us an email:

Will beta progress transfer to the full game upon its release?
At this stage, no. As the Spacebase Startopia beta is a separate project to the main game and listed as two separate applications in your Steam library, it is unlikely that progress will carry over upon release of the full game.

Which languages will be supported by the Spacebase Startopia beta?
At launch, the beta will be available with both English and German subtitles and voice-over. Upon release, many more languages will be added.
