Star Control: Origins isn't supposed to launch until sometime next summer, but a beta is already available where players can create fleets and battle against other players or against the AI.
The Fleet Battles beta is available to anyone who pre-ordered the game. The beta comes with a Ship Crafting system that will let players design their own ships that they can use in the battles.
The game costs $24.99 on Steam, GOG, and the Stardock store. For $29.99, you can purchase the bundle that includes expansions Star Control: The Ur-Quan Masters and Star Control: Kessari Quadrant. Pre-orders started last month, but you can still grab the game and immediately be granted access to the beta.
Star Control: Origins is a reboot of the original classic of space exploration and space combat. Stardock purchased the rights to the franchise in the Atari bankruptcy in 2013, and launched a Founder's Program franchise back in 2015. The reboot was announced in 2016.
