After the game is released, in addition to fixing any bugs that may persist, we plan to add a variety of content and feature enhancements via at least one major update. This update will be free to everyone who owns Xenia’s Ark. These features are still in the design phase, so details may change. Here is a list with some basic information of the planned additions.
Research System Enhancements
- We plan to add a mechanism that will give the player more control over the options they have to research at the expense of credits.
- We plan to add a general research currency and make the research currencies specific to the fields of study less common.
Unit Customization Overhaul

- Replacing module slots with hardpoints, internal bays and external bays. Different component types will be compatible with hardpoints, internal and external bays
- Replacing the Action Points system with an energy based system that requires an energy generating component to produce energy available each turn as well as energy storage devices for storing the energy for use, both occupying internal bays.
- We have many improvements planned for the unit customization system to give players even more options when designing their units including but not limited to:
