Distant Worlds – The First Waypoint

Distance: 998.73 LY from Sol Distant Worlds has launched and if the early experiences around the first way point are anything to go by it’s going to pretty amazing. The clincher is the fact it feels like a fleet, this is despite the instancing limits, and some technical difficulties the …
