Galaxy Online is the first strategic space war game developed by IGG. More than 200 developers spent 2 years developing Galaxy Online, and now have finally completed preparations for the Open Beta.

Since the Alpha Test began on March 3rd, the development team has modified the game many times and applied a number of patches. In that time, the team has mainly been introducing new hulls, new modules, and new systems to the game, as well as modifying the existing hulls and modules to achieve the right mixture of balance and fun.
