NetEase has an Eve Online-like strategy game in closed beta

A space fight in Infinite Lagrange

It’s certainly a good time to be into mobile strategy games set in space. NetEase has joined in the fun with Infinite Lagrange, an Eve Online-like strategy game that has landed in closed beta. If you want to get involved, you’ll need to have an Android phone handy and be in the United States, Canada, Australia, and the Philippines. The test will last between two to three weeks, and once the server closes all the game data will be deleted.

Infinite Lagrange puts you at the head of a galactic fleet and lets you travel through uncharted space. You’ll use stargates to hop from area-to-area, coming across lost cities and alien fleets from friends and foes alike. You’ll start off with three to five ships, but once you construct a space port and upgrade your tech’ you’ll be able to get more. You’ll be able to design a plethora of different ships for your varying needs, from constructing frigates for cargo to forging battlecruisers to defend yourself.

It looks like there will be plenty of different fights you’ll find yourself in, too. When not picking scraps with other players, you’ll be able to join forces with many more to take on massive space cities. NetEase even goes as far as to say fights like these will involve hundreds of players.

If you’d like to get involved, follow this link to the Google Play store. Keep in mind, though, you’ll need to be in the United States, Canada, Australia, or the Philippines for it to work. I tried it and ended up on the game’s Facebook page – woe is me.

If you’re feeling stranded as an iPhone user, you can always head over to our best iOS games list for a couple of strategy recommendations like Iron Marines or The Battle of Polytopia.
