Juli 26, 2022: The Dutch game studio Tense Games added Super-Ships to Stellar Warfare last Saturday. These are similar to experimental units as they were in Supreme Commander and Total Annihilation for example. And they pack serious firepower.

Stellar Warfare has been released into early access on August 4 2021 after three years of development. A lot of features have been added to the game since then. There are bi-weekly updates, constant polishing and the occasional quality of life improvement.

Earlier Tense Games already added a feature that allowed Heavy class ships to fire twice as fast to make them more impactful compared to small and medium ships. This came at an additional resource cost for heavy ships. So while the amount of Heavy ships on the battlefield has been decreased by this, the amount of impact they have has been drastically improved.

Other recent additions include new maps, a more polished direct-control mode for ships, and additional artillery structures. A cooperative wave-defense game mode has also been added.
