Warring Factions is a free, browser based, massively multiplayer, real time space strategy game.
Built around a fully modelled universe with tens of thousands of systems and their associated planets, players can build thriving space empires. Join a faction to work with others to further your factions goals, or just fly solo with your own purpose.
A completely open research system allows incredible customisation and personalisation of your ships and fleet compositions. Test your brains and brawn against the best the universe has to offer.
Spread your empire throughout the universe, seeding untold planets with your citizens. With every planet being different, every colony becomes a different challenge to the one before.
Do you want to build a scientific outpost? a military base? or just pump your apartment blocks to the rafters with as many people as possible.
Warring Factions is fully supported by the community, using WF Coins as a way to let players spend real money to get coins in game that allow them to name planets, systems and more.
Our interface is fully responsive, resizing to fit whatever device you want to use. Portrait, landscape, phone, tablet or a large widescreen monitor, everything resizes to fit your situation.
Using the extensive and fully player controlled research system you can continuously improve your ship technology.
Build a fleet using the myriad of ship classifications, coordinate with your team mates to launch an extended military campaign and watch your enemies crumble.
All ships are player designed and fully customisable, from the engine it uses to the guns it carries.
Fill in the details below and we'll cross the T's and dot the lower case J's on getting you in charge of your own Space Empire.

Suffering the fate of the early risers of evolution the Scaldarians were decimated time and time again by their grumpy and active planet. Barely surviving ice ages, only to expand heroically during the interglacial periods between them. Intelligence was a hard fought battle against nature, forcing the Scaldarians to learn how to survive several global extinction events.
Once everything had rather settled down, the Scaldarians were left dominating their planet. Their culture, exposed to freedom for the first time, frantically searched for a new purpose. Cataloging their local stars and space, they searched for a new threat to prepare for. The astrologists learned of an area of space where light entered and never returned.
Perceiving this new discovery as the object they had been searching for, the catalyst was set for expansion to the stars, planning to meet whatever they discovered head on.
Death is certain. Glory is earned. Success is essential.
By these three tenets the Archons have survived the comings and goings of a several millenia of conflict, prosperity and everything inbetween. Their philosophy remains sacred into the modern technology age, with those that achieve glory, whether it be financial, cultural or otherwise, being introduced to the Halls of Time; A record kept since records began of those deemed worthy of remembering.
After local space exploration uncovered a strange anomaly the Arcons set their sights on success. Personal fortunes, corporate budgets and national reserves were quickly emptied into the nubile space industry and the Archons set off in search of their own histories.

Without ties that bind or obligations to anyone, every Lost civilization is unique and independent from the rest of the universe. Finding no common ground with the other factions, the Lost have decided to eke out an existence cut off from the major ruling powers, and have to deal with the hardships of a sometimes harsh and unforgiving universe by themselves. Often occupied more with survival than ideals, the Lost will always have a hard uphill battle ahead of them. They will begin in the Core of Alpha without a faction homeworld and also lacking many of the Faction mechanisms.
Warring Factions uses a custom built universe generator, generating tens of thousands of star systems with multiple galaxies. The generator fills these systems with unique planets, differing in size, landmass, atmosphere, gravity and the resources each planet contains.
The universe is fully 3D and navigable using our proprietary 3D javasript engine.
