Read On….

In the far flung future, most of humanity live safely within The Core, a place of rigid control and conformity. You however refuse to conform, refuse to be controlled and regulated, and so have been exiled from the Core.

Here, in the Sphere Galaxy, life is not easy. Factions strive against each other for economic or military supremacy, gangs of ruthless pirates roam the space ways attacking where they wish, and a sinister alien enemy waits just beyond the edge of known space to destroy all life.

Yet riches and fame are also out there for the taking. Whether it’s upholding the law against pirates or plundering from the unwary, mining asteroids for valuable minerals, salvaging space debris or researching and building new technology, there are plenty of ways for a Captain to make a name for themselves.

What can I do in Core Exiles?

Welcome to Core exiles, an online world the like of which you’ve never seen before.

Here you will become the captain of your own spacecraft trying to make your way in six galaxies. What you do is entirely up to you.

You might choose to take on combat missions, upholding the law or indeed preying on fat merchant ships for loot. You might become a crafter, able to build and sell a diverse range of devices from new weapons to resource extractors.

You may build your own settlement, maintaining its people and protecting them from attacks while trying to earn a profit. Mine asteroids for resources, explore strange alien planets or derelict spacecraft, run drones, factories and hundreds of other pieces of technology.

For the competitively minded there is Mech combat, where you can battle your large robotic creations against those of other players for glory and renown.

Whether you’re a strategist, an explorer, a privateer or a mix of all three, you’ll find yourself at home in Core exiles.

New additions like Derelict Exploration, Wreck Salvaging, Nebula and the ability to collect Dark Matter resources. In game exploration that clears the way for new planets. Global research projects making sure there is always new technology and items being added. Certification in ship based skills preparing for player made ships and Level 6 Settlements.

What about a community & Updates?

With a friendly and welcoming group of fellow captains, always ready to offer tips, buy and sell gear or just hang out and chat, and various player guilds to join, the Core exiles community is as diverse as the galaxies where the game takes place.

Then of course, the game is constantly evolving. New technology, enemy threats or options for research or competitions to win valuable prizes appear each month.

Core Exiles is always evolving and whats great is Core Exiles will always be FREE to play. Sure you’ll be able to purchase some special items should you wish to but the game still remains free to play.

But don’t take our word for it. Creating an account is free and easy and you’ll instantly be able to access the game through your browser.

    C.E. has a lot to offer and as one person I just read stated – you cant learn it all, there is too much to be an expert on all that is within the game. One part of the game I do like is that your allowed to have a 2nd character playing (within rules) My first hauls lots of cargo for the moneyyy and sometimes goes out to complete non player character missions for a bonus. My 2nd has allowed me to operate in new areas of the game I hadn’t tried and I find this an aspect of the game not many others allow legally.

    The game is great, the players are very helpful (I cant believe how much knowledge some have hidden away) and the admin are tops..

    No, its not for everyone. But for those that try and stay more than 2 or 3 weeks, I think you will find the 2 or 3 weeks turns into 2 or 3 months – 2 or 3 years very quickly

    In game name is Shadow. welcome all of you to try us out.

    I’m one of those long term players (8+ years now) and I play nearly every day. Sometimes I can only do 10 minutes, other days four hours, but I haven’t considered leaving this game since that first year. Its also the only game I spend actual money on – most games I try out, I leave from disgust or boredom within a couple of weeks.

    That said – this game isn’t for everyone. There’s no PvP here, no twitch fests, no newbie looting. If that’s what you
    want, CE is not your game. But if you like long term, steady progress type of games, CE has got a lot for you.
    Over the years, I’ve mastered four or five careers. And I’m a raw newbie in at least three or four other careers.
    Not from inability, but rather because I’ve never gotten to them, because my primary careers are so deeply developed that I’ve never had time or inclination to get into those other careers.

    CE has a depth to it that I’ve rarely seen matched in any other game. Thats what keeps me coming back day after day.

  3. Mechwarrior says:

    l have been playing CE for about 3 months now and l wanted to post something here to help others who might be thinking about joining up. Firstly, l come from an Ogame/2moons space strategy background and if your here looking for something like they offer forget it. l had four game accounts on four different games and left them all for CE. ln other games you mine three basic metals and build up levels of lab, shipyard etc and gather large ships to raid others. Stepping into CE leaves all of that way behind. l often talk in game with players who have been here for over NINE YEARS and they are still having to gather items and resource to build something new to them!
    There is no actual fighting with other players except in the mech combat area. But if you like the thought if chasing down pirates to earn experience and income, you will never be short of targets. (some even play as pirates) The resources you can mine or stumble across when searching derelict ships is into the 100s and the items you could locate and later put to use are into the 1000s.
    The guys who play the game are a mixed bag. Some talk everyday, some like me sit back and read comments and post.on topics of special interest. The players who form game admin are amazing. l have never met a more helpful group in my years and years of gaming.
    Lastly, Coops is online for hours each day, talking with us all. Ever friendly to help others enjoy is baby ‘CE’
    He runs special in game events constantly and he plays an account in game so he us very aware of whats going on and how the game is running.
    My last word for CE…. ln over 10 years of playing strategy games, CE is the first game l have spent any money on. The exchange rate for me into english pounds is a killer, but l cant help but want to try and pay back something to this game.
    This is all about LONG TERM STRATEGY and its amazing!

  5. Ember-16 says:

    Why is thar no bad things about this game I don’t play but I read all the comments and but not one was saying it’s bad why?

    • Coops says:

      Why not play and find out, we never ask players to ONLY post the good stuff so I guess the ones that take the time to post actually like the game. Your welcome to join and find out for yourself. CE is not for everyone but if you like a deep and broad space game that you’ll still be finding new elements to several years down the road CE might be for you.

      Coops

      • RhysAnnwn says:

        I do note, however, that there aren’t any real comments for over two years. That is a long time, and may speak volumes about the player base.

        • Coops says:

          Try looking at the rest of the site there are LOADS of recent comments about CE, just not on this thread as its an old thread.

          Try looking at the forums and joining in the Discrod Chat. We are a friendly bunch here to help. You might even make some new friends

  6. SpaceBucks says:

    Why bother playing Core-Exiles?

    If you play games on your phone or tablet, you can play some glitzy games, but they have no substance at all.

    If you have a PC, then you can play MMORPG games that require huge downloads and massive bandwidth to get rolling. Then you find all the other players only care about themselves. And they want you to pay them for the honor.

    Here in this browser game, you will find some really fun folks that want to help fellow players. You can ask questions and someone will surely give you an answer and help more than you expect.
    The basis of the game is real to life. You are a reject, an outsider not loved by the mainstream world. You leave your old world to find a huge expanse of the universe where others think and feel like you. They are open an willing to help you succeed, as long as you play fair to others. It is nice feeling to know that you are no so alone in the cold depths of space!

    You should give it a go. I bet you will be surprised as I was — just do not get addicted.

  7. Excruciator Salesman says:

    Other games have PvP. Core exiles has PhP that is Player helps Player. Play different! Play core exiles!

  8. Jaclarri says:

    Why Play I play Core Exiles to be blunt for the fun this game gives me. All the people here help each other out the makers of the game Coop and all his helpers keep this game going fun events at holiday times and keep changing stuff up so the game never stay’s the same. I have played alot of other online game none have the family feel like this one.
    Stay long enough and you will keep coming back for more

    I am so glad I stumbled across this world! Even as I tinker around in the few planets near home, I see already the vast world beyond and the endless options awaiting me.

  10. DarkenShroud says:

    The community is super helpful and polite. The game mechanics allow for many options of play style. The universe is grand, with much to explore. Whats not to love!!

  11. Deathsgate says:

    This is the BEST Community online, bar none !! — I have played in many different games and been involved in online discussion groups and this community, the Core Exiles Clan, is the nicest, most helpful, happiest I have seen anywhere, anytime !!

    Huge Bonus !! : NO PVP !! — I am know for what I DO, not Who I kill — what I do is persistent, not wiped away at a whim by someone who has been playing for 5 years and just happens to be bored today — the Hole I stand in is all my own !! I picked the spot, I dug it, and it’s still right here !! : )

    come and join us in making YOUR world a reality !!

    • Magic Voe says:

      What do I like about Core Exiles? I am now level 41. I am still a noob but I have been around the block and I can cross the street by myself to poke around in the Anvil, the Forge, Verec-Per and once or twice the Furnace universe areas of Core Exiles.

      It is time to upgrade my starship and so I have my extractors and mining drones and factories going full steam while I choose between combat, courier, looting abandoned ships, manufacturing and mining missions to make cash and gain xp.

      And all this is free free free and I play as much as I want or can let it sit while I take care of other stuff.

      To paraphrase John Lennon: All we are saying, is give Core Exiles a chance.

  12. Typhon Grey says:

    All I can say is WOW! (and I am not referring to that Blizzard monstrosity) This game is one of those that is simple to play but will take time to master. I have only been playing for a couple of days and I am already impressed with the depth of the game world.

    I like the “open world” concept, you are defined by what skills you choose rather than what “class” you are.

    I look forward to many happy hours of play.

    Thank you,
    Typhon Grey

  13. Bloodskye says:

    This game is a wonderful refreshing change from EVERY other MMO I have ever played.

    Here are the things Core Exiles ***doesn’t*** have:
    Useless time sinks like having to run everywhere you go.
    Specific places to log in and out of.
    Having to go somewhere ‘safe’ if you need to step away from the game for some reason. Then having to run all the way back. Did I mention I hated having to waste time running around?
    Having to worry about people killing you if you go out to the nifty areas. (if you played Eve, you know what I mean.)
    Game mechanics that seem to be specifically designed to make things difficult and irritating.

    Here is what Core Exiles ***does*** have:
    Mining asteroids, mining nebula, crafting, engineering, blowing up pirates, being a pirate, exploring derelict ships. exploring planets, making planets, building ships, easy and convenient ways to store and ship loot, easy and convenient ways to buy and sell said loot, building your own settlements, and probably more. I’ve only been playing for a while.

    I love that if I need to step away I can. Just step away, come back, and all is how I left it.
    I love that you really can play the game for free without missing out on things, unlike some other ‘free’ games I’ve tried. I love that the items in the store are really nifty and not all that expensive.

    For me Core Exiles = bliss.

    Did I mention you don’t have to waste time running everywhere? Just wanted to be sure.

  14. Lars Leech says:

    Core-Exiles is huge with so many different paths you can take. Every thing you do can impact the game world in some small way. Also, there are tons of people and guilds eager to help new players out… but no pressure whatsoever… zero… -none.

    I love this game.

  15. Excruciator Salesman says:

    I lost my previous account, “greed” to an ex-GF who deleted it. It was a mere week old or two.

    In a PvP game, it would mean I could never, ever, EVER catchup with my guild or dueling or conquering or defending or whatever the deal was.

    But SERIOUSLY, this is core-exiles, so I just dived right back in and it was fun all over again… PVE forever, maaan!

  16. Ronon says:

    Are you tired of browser games that seem to promise a lot and then only deliver the usual – develop/gather/manage whatever you need to progress…and then throw all your effort away in a battle against other players?

    If that’s the case and you’re fed up with all the PvP offer, you’ve found the perfect game! Core-Exiles really lets you choose from multiple options, as captain of your own ship – explorer, miner, trader, builder, are some of the choices, and even if you feel like PvPing a bit, you can always hop into a Mech and go for it!

    You’ll have a huge universe to explore and discover your path, always with the help of a very friendly community! Honestly, don’t be scared by the dimension of the game, since although it has a lot to learn, you’ll have fun doing it, with tutorial missions and very useful guides.

    “So, when do you get to the part of the pay-to-win?”, you may ask – it’s free! Seriously, you don’t need to pay anything to enjoy the game! You’re not competing against other players, remember? You’re following your own course, so there’s really no need to spend actual money, unless you want to!

    Come on, take the jump and join! Let your inner Malcolm Reynolds, run wild!

  17. Achilleos says:

    I’ve been playing for a year now and what I love most about the game is the fact that it is constantly being developed, meaning there is always something to look forward to, another challenge to meet or another direction to take.
    The game is endless and with so much variation you can’t help but be addicted

  18. Darakhoranon says:

    CE is one of the best browser games I’ve seen.

    For instance, it is REALLY free-to-play.
    Sure, there is a shop where you can get assorted useful things, but most of those are actually no more than “shortcuts” – for example, the ships you can buy in the shop are exactly the same ones you can get in the game (using the shop only means you can get one a bit sooner). But since you will never directly fight another player, getting a “better” ship sooner is purely for your convenience.
    Additionally, you can get most of the “luxury” items like additional factories offered in the CE shop without paying anything. You just need a little luck finding certain items to trade in or take part in special events that are held quite often.

    It is also a HUGE game.
    Explore, trade, shoot things (not other players, though), compete in “Mech battles” (mainly luck-based PvP that is purely optional and will never affect your character), craft items (e.g. factories or weapons for your ship), become stinking rich, buy the biggest ship in the game and have your name painted on it in huge glowing letters (okay, the last part is not implemented. Yet…)… The options are nearly endless and you will never be “locked” into one career – if shooting NPC ships gets boring, do some trade missions for a while or grab a mining laser and break down asteroids.
    And since you will never directly compete with another player (trading resources and equipment is the only thing you can “do to each other”), there is no danger of you falling behind or having someone much stronger burn down what you’ve built up.

    Last but not least, the way the game is set up means you do NOT have to log in daily. While certain goals in the game might be easier to accomplish if you at least take a look every other day or so, you can definitely play CE by only logging in at the weekend for example. And you will NOT “fall behind” by doing so!

  19. Tyrne Proctor says:

    Core-Exiles is one the better games out there simply because it’s choice based. Fighting, crafting, pirating, mining, exploration, shipping, etc. Whatever tickles your fancy you are free to explore. The option to reset your basic skills every so often allows for players who become bored, or wish to explore another career, to do so without messy game mechanics.
    The staff and senior players are always friendly and willing to help. There are plenty of prizes and fun games sponsored by the staff to participate in throughout the year. After awhile it can feel a bit like an extended family.
    Also, unlike some other games i’ve tried, there is little threat of attack and/or loss of resources while you are off-line. There is the option of fighting and mech combat if you fancy that sort of thing, but you won’t log-on to find that everything you’ve spent time and energy building has been ‘acquired’ by another player while you were asleep.
    Last but not least, try it because it’s fun!

  20. Deathsgate says:

    Core Exiles is the ONLY very large scale, persistent, non PvP, Browser Based game available on the Web (that I could find) that is totally FREE to play. Some may not call all those items, ‘good things’ but there is a growing number of folks that are getting tired of and bored with the alternatives.

    Have you ever played on a 32 X 32 game board for very long ? — Gets BORING fast !! Have you ever had everything you worked hard for get wiped out through a bad PvP result ? — or a horribly lopsided PvP combat ? (Like a 14 month player, tight with the nuances of game play jumping a 2nd week player who hasn’t learned anything except Frustration) Have you ever lost everything because of a foul up on the main server and had everything reset back to scratch ? Have you found “THE Perfect Online Game” only to find that a Download is necessary (usually loading you up with all kinds of Ads and Popups that gum up your system for weeks, until you have it ‘steam cleaned’ by a Pro !!) — wanna bet that “Free Download” is sponsored by On Line Ad Agencies ?? — if this all sounds familiar and you are truly fed up with, tired of, and disgusted with it all ……….. Join us in Core Exiles where NONE of that garbage exists !!

    Best of all, there is a HUGE community of friendly, helpful folks who are more than willing to help get a New Pilot up onto their feet and out onto their Wings ! The Strategy of Chess, the Tactics of a Shoot ’em Up, the persistence of a Living, Growing Game combined with the open play style of an RPG is what Core Exiles is to me. As complex as you want it to be, as open ended as you like. The variety of things to do and see make this possible in a game format.

    I DID find “The Perfect Online Game” …….. come on in and join us !! (the atmosphere’s fine !)

  21. Alima Lyndarra says:

    Core Exiles has kept me coming back for years. I’m never bored and there is always so much to explore and do. Before I can barely begin to dive into something new, something else is being added to the game. This game is not just for those that love to interact with however many they wish to interact with but also for those that like to sneak through this universe and try things on their own. It’s great!

    Fly Safe. Have fun!

  22. Korth says:

    I have been playing 15 months and still have plenty of game content to “dig” into. New content is added all the time, not only for the high level players, but the low and mid-level players as well (new C.A.M.P. missions). If you want to give a try make sure you join the in game chat for advice and friendly banter.

  23. Thrill Fill says:

    As you continue play Core-Exiles you realize that it has the vast variety of options and raw freedom in every aspect of playing styles a space game is supposed to have.
    Combat,Trade,Industry,Crafting,Planet exploration is only the easy ones i can come up with now.
    Addictive,exciting,interesting,100% recommended game.

  24. Xenon says:

    It’s easy to get up and running quickly! I’ve only been playing a few days! ๐Ÿ™‚ There is plenty of depth of gameplay to keep me coming back!

  25. Xenon says:

    It’s an interesting game that’s easy to pick up! It’s got plenty of different types of gameplay. There are helpful guides for reference or a player to ask if you get stuck!

  26. Shyruban says:

    I just started playing, I think it’s a good game, there’s a bit of a learning curve to it but it’s really worth it.
    There’s alot more depth to it than what appears at first. If you get into the game, help yourslf and do the noobie missions and read the text the NPC gives you because on top of the mission info, he\she will often give you important tips. For example not to waste your skill points on skills you don’t need yet, Spent those skill points on skills as required for fitting new gears often given to you as reward on noob missions. Fuel is everything, it dwindles fast so make sure you don’t do hopping all over aimlessly, once no more fuel you can’t do anything.
    Don’t be afraid to go in chat, a lot of players there are willing to help with information that you need or point you where you can get such infos, so far it’s a friendly community.
    I love the game.

  27. Gamezealot says:

    Friend introduced me to Core Exiles 2 days ago and I am already hooked. First thing I have noticed is how genuinely friendly and helpful the community seems to be. The social side of the game is always important to me so this is a big plus.

    The amount of information from simple starter guides to more in depth game items, and in game processes is huge. Then there is the game play. Combat, manufacturing, exploration – there is something for everyone.

    Play at your own pace, a few hours here and there, or find something to keep you logged in for days at a time. Yeah, for a free game I’m pretty impressed, and definitely recommend giving it a go.

    Some may find certain aspects of the game a bit complicated at first, but don’t forget there are a lot of guides about, and many helpful players on the forums more than willing to help a new pilot.

  28. GeneralHaygar says:

    With soo many MMO’s out there is hard to find one with active players every day
    Core-Exciles is the place. Made so many friends in chat an seee them every day!
    Let some of the most helpfull people you evermet
    see ya in chat
    GeneralHaygar

  29. Jedrik McKie says:

    I just started playing a few days ago and I’ve got to say, I’m hooked. The admins and players are all super friendly. You can seriously do about anything you want. Trade, mine, explore.

    It can be a little overwhelming at first but I’ve found that people on the forums, irc and even pm’ing captains docked the same place as you are all willing to help out. Make some friends (or don’t), it’s all about having a good time. One of the comments above had a reference to Firefly and that’s really what it feels like to me so far. I know there are people that have been around for a long time and are super rich so they’re operating on a whole different level than me.

    If you start playing add me to your friend list or shoot me a pm if you’ve got questions. I don’t know everything (or most things probably) but I’m willing to try to help you figure it out and maybe learn something in the process. Welcome.

  30. Flynch says:

    Core Exiles is AWESOME!!!
    You can play as little or as much as you want. There is no ending, or resets. Core Exiles is constantly adding new features. There are a ton of different things players can choose to do. Coops is always giving away free stuff, sometimes just for playing. So if anything I just said sounds good to you. Why not create an account and start playing. You won’t regret it! You will have years of FUN! I know I have.

    Flynch

  31. Bolcien says:

    Core Exiles isn’t the typical Browser MMO. It’s slower in design of upgrades. Think of it as Firefly. Always struggling to get that next needed upgrade. There are also many aspects in which you can play, No set path or predictabbility of anything.

  32. Xendor says:

    Play at your own pace advancing as fast or slow as you want to. Become the captain of your own ship, explore the universe, mine ore from asteroids or carry cargo from one planed to another, open a shop in a mall or build a factory. Or do it all and more and never worry about being shot down or blown up while you are offline.

  33. D S Dunlap says:

    Within the rather WIDE parameters of the game universe, there is nothing you cannot do in Core-Exiles, particularly if you wish to put forth effort into a goal. You may concentrate on one aspect, if you want to. You may also dabble in everything, if you so desire. Your decisions do have some effect on what you find yourself able to do and which factions you may or may not work for. However, nothing is set in plasteel (an in-game resource), and you may always change your path and go in a somewhat (or even ENTIRELY) different direction than you were before.

    Core-Exiles is one of those few games out there which allows for extreme flexibility in your playing style. I’m closing in on five years of playing. It is most enjoyable. ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. hector461 says:

    I get home from work, get cup of joe, loggin and play till my wife starts giving me the evil eye. Then play again after she turns in or even before.

    Always something new and interesting to accomplish,salvage, mine, make ,sell, explore. Never a dull moment. Core Exiles is the only browser game I play.

  35. Strange says:

    What do i like about Core Exiles?…w0w!…if i had to narrow it down to just one of many things…i would have to say the People.
    i have met people from all over the world and they are simply put, some of the best people i have ever met ๐Ÿ˜€
    Rock on CE!
    kudo’s to you Coops, great work ๐Ÿ™‚

  36. qicken says:

    This is an amazing game. I have hunted pirates, mined ores, crafted new equipment, and hauled passengers/supplies across the galaxies. Yet, I have just begun to scratch the surface of the game. Right now, I’m roaming the Furnace (a glaxay) documenting where the various types of ores are found. The only reason I’m doing it is for my curiosity. The game does not require it, but I want to know.

    The interaction with the people playing the game has always been friendly and helpful. Got a question head to the chat room and not only will someone answer the question but provide helpful advice on how to improve whatever you are doing.

    Many games you play for awhile and the challenge is gone. This game allows you to move onto a different challenge anytime you feel the least bit bored.

  37. Eynhallow says:

    Great game that has grown dramatically since I have been playing it. Choose your profession and interact with others in a non-combatative manner to achieve your goals. You will find lots of helpful, friendly and humourous people that will help you along the way.

  38. Allison says:

    Best thing I like about this game is,” just when you think you got it all figured out”…….you learn that you are still a very little fish (minnow-scale) in a great big,wide,’expanding’ universe of oceans!

  39. Canman says:

    One of the most interesting,challenging browser games going.You cant get bored with this ever evolving game!

  40. TheRonmasteh says:

    First of all, some games have a VERY LOW database of resources. No matter how fun a game with awesome gameplay can be, it will eventually get repetitive VERY FAST if it has very low resources.
    (Ex: A Racing game with only 3 tracks and 10 cars, Shooting game with only 3 guns to choose, etc.)

    Core Exiles is HUGE on every possible way. Has an infinite list of resources, incredibly huge amount of planets, vast amounts of CAREERS to choose (hence what you would like to do), variety of ships, lots of stuff to craft, enemies to fight, and the list goes and goes and goes…

    What I like about CE? Well, I started with the Courier missions. They are simple and you EXPLORE that huge list of planets I said earlier. I admit earlier levels are frustrating, but later it pays: You can craft any schematics you would like (Again, there are TONS! of things to craft. You can’t get bored), you can harvest resources from each planet, you can sell your gained items, and so on. I’m not of a fighter type, but the Combat System is also complete as well.

    The Fuel system might be a bit of a let-down for the impatient people. But if you can be patient enough and wait a day or two, you can spend hours on this game. It’s simply amazing.

    Two days ago while searching in browser games lists I discovered this game, I have decided to give it a try and I got a nice surprise. This game is really well made, great depth and possibilities, it was not easy at beginning but in few minutes everything got clearer and the wide universe opened up ๐Ÿ˜€
    This game have some structure in common with a more famous game, that one needs a lot of cash to be played and got some more graphics, this one not need cash and has somethig more valuable, instead of “Do not trust anybody” philosophy it has everybody nice and helpful. Great community.
    So I am happy to be part of it, long live to exiles.

  43. Doric says:

    I found Core Exiles about 2 days ago by google top 10 Browser games. The funny thing is it not on most “Top 10 list” yet.
    My first time saw the game name from people’s comments for top games. So I want to give it a try. I never thought I would like to play a space game before. But right now I have to say Core Exiles is the game I’m looking for. Yes there is no PvP like Travian no fancy graphic like Settlers online in CE. Don’t be fooled by cover. There are so many things to do in Core Exiles just like other people said. Give it a try and it’s FREE. It’s the No.1 on my top browser game list.

  44. Locknload says:

    CE is unique that you do not advance by causing misery to others. There are many paths that are all rewarding. The only way to Fail is by not playing…..and Nobody wins. ๐Ÿ™‚

  45. Rowan says:

    I’ve been playing CE off and on for years, and it’s still as wonderful and epic as it was on day one. In my opinion, one of the best things about Core Exiles is the open-ended world that you’d normally expect from a non-browser game like WoW (Which by the way, doesn’t compare to CE.) You can define your gameplay experience to be whatever you want it to be.

    Do you want to go it alone and do your own thing? You can! Are you a player who enjoys the company of working with your fellow players in a guild? You can! From acting as a law abiding military operative upholding the law, to a pirate who only cares about profit, to a miner or hauler who just wants to meet the delivery schedule on time? The opportunities are limitless. Not only are the career paths expansive, the environment itself is too. You can open your own settlements and planets, explore alien civilizations, work with hundreds of NPCs, all while working your way up in one faction, maybe angering another. Balancing politics, your career, your bank accounts; it’s all here.

    So, I invite you to try the best browser game out there. Welcome to Core-Exiles, Captain; and have fun!

  46. Valthonicas says:

    The best thing about Core Exiles, in my opinion, is that there is always more things coming on the horizon. This is my second time playing the game, I had a two year brake, and it’s great to see so that there is so many new and interesting things to do. This is what stops Core Exiles from stagnating like so many other games out there.

  47. Mika Rune says:

    So many pluses . . . I’ve not been here long, but Core Exiles is not really a game to win. It’s a simulation to run.
    I like that it’s basically free.
    I like that the people who play here are friendly, respectful of newbs and helpful beyond helpful.
    I like that all areas I’ve visited are basically family friendly.
    I like the sheer incredible volume of options, but how some options are limited by your level in the game and other factors. It’s interesting, but less overwhelming that way.
    I like the silly humor in some of the events.
    I like the fun ingame surprises, rewards and prizes.
    I like that the NPC missions teach you so much about how to play while you’re actually playing. Best way to learn a game, ever!
    I like that it’s still in development and evolving constantly, that I can play through out the day without getting all worked up and I’m still finding new and better ways to use features, that you can have a friend’s list– both for friendly competition and so you can help people out– that if you make major misteps, you can work your way out of them with time, that the devs are so interested in the player experience.
    No it’s not perfect– but so far the worst thing about the game is how danged addictive it is.

  48. Swayam says:

    I’m pretty new to this game myself, but i have been pretty surprised by both the depth and surface covered in Core-Exiles. Having played a lot of these browser games myself, I thought i was in for another disappointment, but I was pleasantly surprised. For starters, the FTP(free-to-play) features of this game are pretty darn interesting. The game has a vast directory and i dont think i’ll ever run out of interesting things to do in the near feature atleast. Things have not beem rote, I have actually had to think them through. Definitely a good game for the browser-games genre

  49. Albert Ross says:

    So many ways to go in the game, as you approach completion of a task you look at the next twenty plus possible moves. and wonder which road to take? Attacking enemies can be only a small fraction of the game, or more, it’s up to you.

    Only when I get low on fuel for my ship do I recall that Core Exiles is only a game; but WHAT a GAME!

  50. Souledge says:

    Core exiles isn’t like any other game out there and i’ve tried a lot of em.

    * You don’t have to spend a penny if you don’t want to and can still get where every premium player can.

    * You don’t have to PVP unless you want. You can PVP anytime you feel like it with your Mech’s !

    * Game depth is trully humungus! you will never be out of options on what to do next

    * Game updates always add something more to do.

    * Game updates will not diminish what you have built so you have to spend real cash and time to get back on your feet like in other games

    * Many guilds with many good people to have fun with. You don’t wana join one? Fine ๐Ÿ˜‰ Drop in on IRC and people will
    answer your questions and give help anyway.

    * If you join a guild you will see that everyone is there just to have fun. No obligatory logins for ops or cash injections to the guild. Wouldn’t make sense in Core-Exiles

    * If you are into clasic roleplaying RPG then the Core-Exiles universe allows for an epic. The world is changing continiously . Space opera/scifi fans I can guarantee will love this game!
    Check out the story so far here http://ce-timeline.com/

    Could keep going on and on but most replies cover what i can say about this game already.

    Hope you join us.

  51. Lonestar says:

    There are so many things to do in this game, and all of them are well-balanced in respect to payouts (XP, cash, and rewards) vs. fuel and realtime put into them. Game mechanics balance is one of the hardest things for anyone to get right, and the Core Exiles team does it better than most of the pay-to-play games out there. Plus, free players are not totally hamstrung in this game. I never feel like I’m way behind the curve just because I haven’t spent hundreds of dollars on in-game purchases. Of course, there are some fabulous things to be had at the CE Stores, but they are not necessary to having a full and fun experience in Core Exiles.

    The player community is also very helpful to new Captains. They’re always willing to give good advice, and more often than not, stuff with real in-game value.

  52. BB Starbender says:

    This is a game that allows the player more freedom than any I have played to choose their own path. In fact, a player can choose several paths at once and mix their play to their own liking. There is no forced PvP, so your game progress is safe when you are not logged in. However, you can engage willing combatants in the mech arena, and get your fill of combat action with the many raids that crop up. The economic platform is largely independent of other players actions, and is therefore quite stable and fluid, allowing smooth economic play at every level.

    In short, this is one of the broadest, most consistent games available for the long-term player. Play now and enjoy.

  53. Dr Pete says:

    Core Exiles is a thinking game. There are some quick and easy rewards to be had, but it’s real value is revealed through patient data collecting and thinking about how the game mechanics and especially game economics works. This is true for all aspects of the game that I’ve explored, and I’ve barely scraped the surface.

  54. wodenson says:

    As a fairly new player, I enjoy that is does not talk down to you as if you have never played a game or used a computer before. I also like that it is tactical, nobody is going to out click you or have faster reflexes to win or know the map so well and where to camp, etc. Lastly, the game is a sandbox that creates the world around you but allows you to write the story for your character and what he/she will do in the world.

  55. easyjaws says:

    CE has so much going on it will take weeks just to scratch the surface. Other players are always willing to help and trade and pass along info, it just makes the game so much better than others .

  56. OsoPeludo says:

    Core Exiles has legs and staying power. You won’t be running up against limits to what you can do in this game anytime soon. It is virtually impossible for a single player to do everything that can be done in the game at the same time so you will find it very easy to move on to another part of the game as your mood moves you. And you have the ability to return to what you were doing at anytime you like with no penalty.

    The economy is rich and varied and it WORKS. Primarily player generated, it is not difficult to establish varied income streams to finance your plans which is good as there is a myriad of things to spend that income on.

    A well developed and rich crafting system where you can see what you want, gather the resources, build it or have it built and then use it.

    Which shows Core-Exiles main strength: Player Interaction. Since there is so much to do and no player can do it all at once, you will find yourself interacting with other players directly through guilds, game chat and in-game mails plus indirectly through various in-game markets to get what you want or need while you, in turn, are helping them get the same things.

    a do your own thing type of game.

  58. DCalvin says:

    ADDICTING!!!!!!!!

  59. Dr. Who says:

    I’d like to invite you to play THE best browser-based game on the Internet. Most games can be divided into two categories: One is the shoot-em-up stuff where the one with the quickest trigger (mouse) finger wins and usually requires you to stay online most of the 24-hour day or else you get beaten; the other type, even worse, is nothing more than the luck-of-draw. Yeah, about as much fun as a continous coin flip. I find both types, pardon my bluntness, as rather childless and pointless.

    This game, however, is totally diffferent. It actually requires *thinking*. Thinking and planning – both short and long range. One of it’s best features is that it never resets and makes you start you over. Never. Everything you manage to accomplish and things you acquire by building, finding or buying (with in-game credits) is yours to keep. Forever – until you decide to use it or sell it.

    Another MAJOR plus is that everything in the game is optional, the choice is strictly up to you – you are never forced to do any particular thing. There are no player-vs-player fights, the closest thing being Mech battles where you can build robots (if you choose to) and send them into an arena to fight other Mechs. And there are many, many choices for careers. You can pick any one as your main job and as many others for secondaries as you want. It’s all up to you, whatever you find the most interesting to do. It’s a space-based game so there are new planets to explore where you can find valuable items and direlict ships to search through. You may chose to be a freight hauler (that’s my main job), fight pirates, craft (make) or engineer dozens of items used by players in the game (you can sell to them), mine planets and asteroids for minerals that are used throughout the game as raw materials and always in demand by other players, transport passengers across the galaxies, and the list goes on.

    You start with a ship and upgrade it in whatever fashion suits your choice of job(s). The only limitation to game play is fuel for your ship. You’re given a generous portion each day (it regenerates every 15 minutes) plus there are a number of ways to get additional fuel in the game.

    This little writeup dosen’t begin to do justice to the flexibility of the game. Also, there’s a staff of programmers and testers constantly adding new dimensions every few months. Another good thing is that they throughly test each new addition before letting it go live. I’ve never once seen any kind of rollback due to an added feature. Plus there’s never any lag. The server is very responsive 24/7. The only slight slowdowns I’ve ever had were between me and my ISP.

    As I just said, there’s a LOT more to the game and I suggest you give it a try. I believe you’ll really like it!

  60. FlyingFish says:

    CE is a GREAT game. It is complex enough that you need a long term strategy. Lots of research, multiple career paths, including crafting, fighting, exploring, and being a merchant.

    You can play for years, there is always something new.

    And the players are the best. Come make friends in CE.

  61. Zaniah says:

    Core Exiles has one of the best communities I have ever come across and There are so many different aspects to the game that it never becomes boring. I love that the Devs work hard to add new and fresh things to the game and that they not only listen to player suggestions but have implemented many. I really enjoy playing!

  62. Marcus says:

    My gaming changed completely in May 2009, when i was introduced to Core Exiles. Since then i’ve gotten to grow with the game, meet fantastic people, many of whom are now real life friends.
    When i was diagnosed with heart disease 3 years ago, i nearly gave up everything, including hope of living, not only did those closest to me reach out, but people from CE did as well, and this helped me to not give up, but instead move on..Core Exiles has helped me level up, not just in game, but in real life.
    I hope to be with Core Exiles as long it is around, and i truly hope that it’s for a very long time!
    Core Exiles IS the BEST game going!
    Thanks

  63. paco1600 says:

    hi, i played many games, single/multy player, scify, economic and role …
    this Core Exiles is the best: it allows to you to play according to your preferred way, you can fight, craft, haul, mine and you can change whenever you want, there is a wiki and a lot of people ready to help your doubts.
    more you play more you like … ๐Ÿ™‚

  64. Alexx says:

    I have tried many games but Core Exiles has longevity with as much depth as anyone could want. Like life it moves on and can suprise even a cynic like me with the ongoing developments and the cooperation of so many players.

  65. Arnica says:

    The effort I can put into Core-Exiles varies from a few hours per week up to day long marathons. As long as the onset of change in effort is not sudden, this game remains playable. Diffulcult to find in a multi-player setting.

  66. FireFall says:

    One of the things that first drew me to the game is that it is NOT driven by PVP โ€œking-of-the-hillโ€ type thinking. You are free to do as you please without having to constantly rebuild destroyed bases or continually upgrade your defenses.

    And that phrase โ€œdo as you pleaseโ€ is fairly literal in this universe. You can mine for raw materials, set up factories to produce consumer goods, haul commodities for profit, shoot down pirates (or BE a pirate), explore derelicts, map new worlds, craft resources, establish your own settlement, buy, sell, or make trade deals with hundreds of other players from around the world.

    โ€ฆor ALL of the above!

    The players here are intelligent free thinkers, who donโ€™t mind lending a hand as long as youโ€™re a self-starter. Send out a yell if you get stuck, and folks will appear out of nowhere to help. You can be as involved (or as UNinvolved) as you want. Help is available, of figure it out for yourself.

    There is nothing else online that is exactly Like Core Exiles.

    And itโ€™s FREE!

  67. Soxaldinho says:

    Having been a member of this amazing community for nearly six years, I can safely say that this is THE BEST browser based game out there.

    I’ve tried many other games from free play mmos, to downloaded pay to play, some are good, but none have managed to hold me like this game does. Once in the world, you’ll instantly be captivated and engrossed. The amazing fellow captains and immense variety of career choices means it’s impossible to get bored. There is always something new to work towards, even for seasoned veterans such as myself. Massive credit to the devs for keeping the game fresh and constantly rolling out fantastic add-ons.

    I’m certainly not retiring anytime soon. Long Live Core Exiles.

  68. CashiaMaxus says:

    I love Core Exiles. Everyone I have come in contact with has be both patient and giving of their time and are always willing to help. The game is always changing, so I have never gotten bored. So…wonderful game, wonderful people:)

  69. Nutcase says:

    In my long search for good browser games, this has been the one to make me stop searching.
    Come on in and try this, you cant stop, meating other players, progressing, leveling up…
    What do you get? your very own spaceship, and a great community!

  70. Tye Dagget says:

    The huge scope of things that you can do in this game, makes it endlessly diverting. I must have tried (and played, semi-frequently) at least two dozen browser games before coming across Core Exiles. In the months since, I haven’t played anything else.

    You can learn this game at your own pace, play as often or as little as you like (I confess, I play almost daily, myself), and still be very successful in the game. While it does have leaderboards, it is not a competitive game- you are essentially competing against yourself.

    I am firmly convinced that anyone who gives this game a try, and plays consistently for an entire month, will be so hooked by the end of that month, that they will still be playing for years to come. Please, do yourself a favor and join Core Exiles!

  71. Swampwallaby says:

    The shining jewel in the crown of Core Exiles is without a doubt a realistic demand driven economy that really works. So many other games fail in that most basic of requirements and fall to rampant inflation or boring stagnation. Layered on top of a truly working economy is a game of staggering depth and diversity that keeps you entertained and excited for years.

  72. lemaole says:

    Core Exiles has been a great experience for me. I have played several internet games. Little did I know when I joined this game exactly how much fun it would be. There are so many things to do in this game. The best part in my opinion though is the quality of the community here. I would suggest this game to anyone who is looking for a wonderful gaming experience.

  73. aRJay says:

    Decades ago I was an innocent reader of science fiction when whilst traveling home from tech I heard a couple of fellow passengers talking about a science fiction computer game for the BBC micro computer, what I heard was fascinating. Later I played that game on at least two different sorts of computers and it was the classic space combat/trading/etc game, that game was Elite.

    Last year I was browsing around and saw this game, it sounded intriguingly familiar so I gave it a go a year and a quarter later I’am still playing, still finding new things to do (not counting the new things added by the Devs) and enjoying it even more than when I started. It is not Elite it is much better, many more things to do, much greater depth and subtlety, and best of all you don’t have to follow the developers script to progress just find a roll or roles you enjoy and have fun.

    The other superb thing about Core Exiles is the player community who are helpful on the message boards and the chatrooms.

  74. james t kirk says:

    This game is fantastic. Firstly the devs are very good at making this game accessible for screen readers, they listen to the player base, the game is fully persistent (no resets) and there’s plenty of currant content to keep you busy for ages and new content being added on a very regular basis. Come play it’s fun!

  75. Scorilo says:

    Six months into playing and I still feel like I’ve just begun to explore the many, many possibilities of this game. The one thing that really got me hooked is the way the game manages to be a complex strategic decision-making sandbox and still retain a relaxing RPG nature. And that leads to a very individualized experience – I don’t think there are any two captains doing things the same way. The one thing it doesn’t have is a lot of puffy fluffy graphics, you’ll learn to live without that, and probably be thankful for it later on ๐Ÿ˜‰

    The game is constantly being updated, new features being introduced, old ones being revamped to better suit the player base (yes, your voice will be heard, you’ll even get to add content – and be rewarded for it…) And it always feels like ‘the next big thing’ is just around the corner – are you ready for it?

  76. lordsiva1 says:

    There’s a lot to say about core exiles, the diversity of the gameplay is one of the major points that makes this game fun to play for a very long time. If you get bored with combat you can just change to exploring exotic new worlds or craft items to make your millions. Random events also spice up game play, you never know what you might encounter. You may be filling your hold with rare items and then before you know it pirates have bored a hole in the side of your ship taking your cargo or maybe the tax man visits… Not all are bad and some are so good you may just earn your first million from what you may chance across. There are also competitions that involve the entire community that help enrich the game and allow you to win prizes.

  77. Fjiekie says:

    Its a game that you can keep playing, i started in 2008 and i’m still playing it. (with some breaks of course)
    there is just so much to do and when you manage to do something, there is something else to do.

    It IS a longterm game you have to keep that in mind but there is also much to do in the beginning of the game.
    The playerbase is also very friendly and will help everyone when able (even with some cheap/free stuff)

  78. Moonblade says:

    Little did I know what awaited me when I started playing Core Exiles 6 months ago after giving up on various online games. The depth, diversity and freedom of choice in this game is astounding.

    Don’t be overwhelmed by the bombardment of new information you face at the start. Take things slow and experiment with various professions like combat and mining. It is possible to be a Jack of all trades but the best results are achieved by concentrating on a few activities. Most professions can be successfully combined
    like combat/salvaging, mining/crafting/resource extraction, hauling/carrying passengers and many more. There are no limits to your options here. Some players even use more than one ship to excel in professions which require very different skill sets and ship requirements.

    As you gain in skills even more interesting options will open up to you like derelict / planet exploration, surveying strange alien worlds and running your very own settlement. Help is always at hand through an extremely friendly player community. Go to game chat, join a guild or post a question on community forum and you will always be assisted. I have never had any negative experience from fellow captains which for an online game is unique.
    As we are all exiles I suppose it is a case of Honor amongst Thieves.

    The online store contains reasonably priced items with regular discounts and you will not feel ripped off after making
    an informed purchase. Not buying anything will not hamper your progress in the game in any way.

    Core Exiles is a rare gem in a gaming market flooded with hundreds of mediocre online browser games.

  79. Sukayo says:

    Core Exiles – my Exile from the Core?
    You cannot shot at other players, so NPC ships and aliens are needed to train a bit this skill. Skill – no, that is not the right word, clicking with a mouse at the right speed is the only skill needed … and controlling how your HP/shileds are going down. Getting more damage per hit and more HP or/and a bigger shield, or even a faster ship to hunt down the enemy ships faster than you,, that is what looks critical for combat. And you never will be under fire from other ships when you do not attack first!
    Exploring – yes, first the galaxies, places to trade, extract resources, getting rare resources, later unexplored planets, to get more places to trade. Or even surveying for your own the Expanse, a galaxy inhabitated by Aliens. Until now no pilot knows all the secrets of the Expanse, and no pilot visited all systems there. And how it looks it will stay so for some time.
    Trading – yes, definitely. Here are pilots needing resources all the time, and offering top prices for them to get them fast. So get some of them and you can get rich fast.
    Building – so you have resources, what now? Craft some reactors, cargo expanders, guns or implants and sell them to pilots looking for them. Or start a settlement and get it to be prepared for level 6.
    Try and error – yes, some of us handle CE in this way. And some are coming back to CE regulary to try it again. Or read all the informations available, check out what can be an error, and ask before your make a decision.
    Competition – a new pilot will not be fast the richest pilot out here, but the top lists are divided into levelled lists, so you could get the best passenger carrier of a pilots between level 20 and 30. Or the best fighter pilot, the best hauling pilot … so here are way to compete … but only when you care about it.

    For me is the most important thing to have fun, and that i have in CE.

  80. mentlcase says:

    Shinter has pretty well covered all the bases. Core Exiles is one of the best games on the internet.
    The beauty of it is that you can make it as easy or as complicated as you like and play at your own pace.
    It’s fun, interesting and addictive. ….. who could ask for more?

  81. Shinter says:

    Core Exiles is a fun game with a great and supportive community that all work together to play the game. It is a slower paced game with no right or wrong way of playing, and usually your only goals are the ones you set for yourself. Take the time to try out the various aspects of the game and see what opportunities appeal most to you. Most importantly, you can always change it up and try new things, so you don’t ever have to worry about screwing up and starting over.

    On top of all of that, the dev team is never far away, and regularly add in suggestions made by players to improve the experience. New additions are also regularly added to the game, always giving players plenty of ways to spend their time.

    While there is a lot to learn about the game, there is plenty of time to do so, and once you start you might find yourself here for years without coming close to running out of things to do.

  82. admin says:

    Post a Comments and tell us what YOU think of Core-Exiles. Give the new players a feel of what to expect, it would be good for current players to help those looking get a feel for the game.
