Nearly nine years after the release of the base game, Empyrion Galactic Survival, the game is getting its first DLC/Expansion; Dark Faction.

The new expansion can be played solo or co-op, and will see the player(s) embark on a journey to discover the origins of a new galactic power, that threatens the Galaxy. This titular Dark Faction is spreading at a rapid rate across the system, and it's down to you to put a stop to it. You'll explore new planets that are being overrun by the Dark Faction, liberating them to slow the expansion of the corruption.
The expansion will bring a host of new items, such as a ballistic projectile weapon class of bows and grenade launchers. You'll also need to fight off this new enemy with other new technology like the Disruptor Turrent, to cripple the enemy ships, leveling the playing field.
Developer Eleon Game Studios will be assisted going forward on the project by Funcom, who will allowing for an increase in marketing and funding for future projects in the series.
A Word From the Developers Eleon Game Studios
Eric Lucas, founder of Eleon Game Studios had this to say on future content:
“Dark Faction, our first expansion, is an opportunity for our team to offer players another flavor of Empyrion, one that is more action-driven. It’s dark, tense, and can challenge even a veteran player. Moreover, with the release of this expansion, we remain committed to continuing adding free updates to the base game.”
