The Game

Nothing can prepare you for the journey that is unfolding… The Galaxy is in a fragile state, balancing on the brink of war and peace. Dark new threats emerge from unknown and unknowable regions of space, conspiring to bring the inhabitants of known space to their knees.

Will you aid your faction when duty calls? Or will you serve your own needs?

Will you fight side by side with your comrades in an epic struggle against a hardened, blood-thirsty foe or will you go it alone, facing the perilous danger as it approaches?

Do you long for the thrill of combat or do you prefer the call of the merchant - always on the look out for a quick, opportune trade.

Your decisions are your own, and the rewards are yours for the taking.

With breathtaking visuals and innovative twitch-based space combat, Jumpgate is the definitive space combat MMO, putting you at the heart of the action as you embark on your mission to explore the galaxy and progress from space rookie to elite commander.
