CSC’s Mining Expedition Alpha mini-game launches
In that context, it’s just launched tie-in mini-game Mining Expedition Alpha (MEA).
This enables anyone who’s already bought ships (or vouchers) to start gaining resources and knowledge of the CSC universe prior to the game’s alpha test, due later this summer.
The game works within pre-set limits of 100 million tons of ore, with up to 2 million tons available per star. Once this total has been mined out, the mini-game will conclude.
You can check whether you can play MEA via your hangar once logged into the CSC website (and MetaMask). Note, to play you will have to spend gas.
You can check out an overview of how MEA works here and in the following video.
