Hades' Star Roadmap - October 2019

Hades’ Star has been live for more than two years - almost 3 years if you count the pre-launch public beta. During that time we have been constantly improving the game. When we first launched there were no White Stars or Blue Stars, Red Stars had just 4 enemy types, the number of modules to equip ships with was about half, and there were no warp lanes or options to automate shipments.

Today I’m sharing thoughts on what the next 3 years *may* look for the Hades’ Star universe. These are not feature promises, and there is also no promise that the game will keep getting updates for 3 years. They are my current thoughts on what the
future may look like, should we continue to be lucky enough to have a passionate, sizeable fan base that continues to support the game and keep development sustainable.

2019.1 release notes

Expected deploy date: February 4-6

Module changes


  • New RS9 Weapon module: DART Launcher
  • New RS6 Transport module: Dispatch
  • Leap: Added preparation time (depends on upgrade level). Cooldown increased to 10m/(4d4h in White Stars). Can now be used in Stargate sectors in White Stars. Fixed issue where Leap would fail if the closest teleport object was the star.
  • Vengeance: Damage greatly increased, especially on early levels
  • Teleport: Fixed issue where teleport line was not displayed if the teleport target was destroyed in the meantime.

Blue Stars

  • Maximum lifetime increased to 5:20
  • Destiny will never cause teleport to an asteroid whose dock point is outside the safe area, and attempting to Teleport to such an asteroid will fail. 

Miscellaneous


  • When selecting any ship, its current target(s) will be indicated with an X icon
  • Red Stars can no longer be abandoned if a player still has ships in them
  • Blue Star distinction icons on profile circle scaled up
  • Blue Star distinction icons now show up on the Blue Star leaderboards
