Launch Rehearsal #2 - October 11-16

Launch Rehearsals are short lived, focused Early Access builds that will only be available for a few days. Each launch rehearsal will be posted on this blog, along with what specific feedback we hope to gather from players.  Starting today and until October 16, you will be able to access the latest Dark Nebula build using a snapshot of your Hades' Star account taken on October 5. See the end of this post for download information per platform. The Hades' Star: DARK NEBULA Early Access build on the Google Play is NOT suitable for accessing this test.  For this build, we are looking for all feedback related to account transitions and gameplay feedback. Please read the upgrade guide first ( ), and let us know if anything you experience in the launch rehearsal build is not compatible with the guide. See our Discord server for more focused feedback questions to ensure a smooth launch next month. Thank you for your help

Dark Nebula upgrade guide

Hades' Star: DARK NEBULA is the next update to Hades' Star. It will release later this year, completely replacing the current live version of Hades' Star.
