That is why for Apocrypha, we are unleashing an ancient race into the universe: the infamous Sleepers, lurking throughout the vast unknowns stretching at the other side of the Wormhole maws. Do not underestimate them, as they will remain radically different from the regular pirate factions you are used to. More often than not, they will give you some substiantial bang for your buck and will require player gang coordination and effort to be dispatched. More details are left for another Dev Blog, but at the moment, know they have comparable player attributes and thus require variations of PvP fits to engage.Who are the Sleepers? Well, they are one of the ancient races that existed prior to the current empires. And from the skill book "Sleep Technology" we get "[t]he Sleepers were masters of virtual reality, neural interfacing and cryotechnology".
Sounds very promising and brings up a point: am I going to need a Code Breaker and Analyzer on the wormhole expeditions? Derranna can use both but I had not considered it before now.
