Bigpoint’s Dark Orbit is a space-based MMORPG playable in your browser. It is based on PvP action featuring a small handful of safe areas, with the rest of the galaxy being as explosive as is hazardous. You are tasked with working your way up your company’s ladder and conquering new sectors in other galaxies. Play Dark Orbit against thousands of real opponents from across the world as three huge corporations fight to gain total control of the galaxy instead of dividing it between them. You’ll be asked which corporation you wish to work for, with each one having different objectives. You may get the chance to swap factions but you can expect to pay a hefty price.
The Mars Mining Operation are focussed on profit-making and opportunism, whilst the Earth Industries Corporation require you commit fully to the company and work towards shared goals. Venus Resources Unlimited claim to be passionate about protecting the galaxy and treating employees fairly. You’ll be faced with evil aliens and tasked with using aggression, lust for money or cunning to achieve your goals. Whichever corporation you choose, you need to collect resources of great value and use all your tactical expertise and skill to acquire victory.
