We've been following the development of Fish Labs' Galaxy on Fire 2 for quite some time now. Between early high resolution screenshots, a brief hands-on at WWDC, and an even more brief teaser trailer, Galaxy on Fire 2 has been high up on my upcoming game wish list for months. This latest trailer shows the game in motion, with tons of in-game footage, and it looks amazing.

Fish Labs isn't getting any more specific on the release date of Galaxy on Fire 2 than "October". In the meantime, you can check out the company blog which is host to tons of incredibly in-depth posts about the game and most recently, the creation of the trailer.

    Great trailer,can't wait to play it. The first Galaxy on Fire was one of my favourites. Love that accent

    I hope the gameplay turns more like Warpgate, with a sandbox mode without making the missions so obvious

    Certainly waiting for it to come out!

    Epic game, I can't believe there are 40+ ships on some scenes, and this is in game stuff! Epic battles to begin :D

    NICE! would be superb if they included some kind of mining in there ;)

    • JT

      If I recall correctly, there is mining included. I believe they discussed that and showed it in action in a video from one of the dev conferences a few months back. This game seems like it's going to have a wonderfully rich sandbox for us to all play in :)

      • araczynski

        good to hear :) after finally getting around to playing space miner ore or bust(?) recently, i'm craving more shooting/mining/upgrading/story :)

        can't wait to see what they come up with here.

    I am really excited for this to finally hit. Really happy to see developers supporting the iPad as well. I am wondering though will this be released at the same time on iPhone and iPad? Universal or not? I can't recall if its been talked about before or not.

    This game feels like vaporware. In development for over a year, still no release date, and now they are writing blog posts on the making of the trailer? JUST FINISH THE GAME, GUYS.

    • JT

      Be patient, from the looks of it, it's going to be worth all of the extra time polishing it up. It's so rare that an iOS game receives this much development time, and it's clear that Fish Labs is about to raise the bar and then some. I personally can't wait for this one as well, space shooters are my favorite genre of all time, and this looks to be better than just about any console or PC offering we've seen in years. Keep up the good work, Fish Labs! This is sure to be a blockbuster, and I hope you guys make a killing on this one for all your hard work.

      • Yrogerg212

        Agreed. I can't wait to play it either. I thought Warpgate was boring and I want a cool space game on my iPad. Now maybe for GoF 3 you guys could use that Unreal Engine 3... ;)

      • JT

        OMG, UT engine with open space shooter?! The mere thought is a total joygasm! And I have to agree with you, Warpgate was a TOTAL letdown for me. When I had first heard of it, details were kinda foggy, and I assumed it was going to be more of a shooter than a pure trade game. I will admit, I was still impressed by the game just by the sheer size of the sandbox universe, but anything positive ended right there. It seemed like I was playing one of those text RPG games like Mafia Wars or something, but with 3D graphics. The so called "combat system" was like a slap in the face. Meh, oh well, might not be my cup of tea, but a lot of other people liked it.

      Congrats, you found one out of at least three glitches in the trailer that we didn't want to fix anymore because it was about time to put it live! :)

      • Yrogerg212

        I think it's hilarious. Please keep it in there! :)

    I dunno, IMHO, the gameplay seems kind of dull, and the graphics look pretty shoddy, nowhere near my PS3. I hope it's not more than $.99, or maybe even free.
    Just kidding. It looks fantastic.

    Can't wait for this one. At least it looks like it might eventually come out, unlike reckless racing.
