Chucklefish has announced that the next patch for Starbound’s ongoing beta will wipe all player data.

The update addresses a save file issue, and as a result means that all characters and worlds will be wiped. However, the developer promised that this should be the last time that player progress will be wiped. “Of course, there’s also the highly anticipated/possibly feared final character wipe– this patch contains a fix for save files so after this, you won’t need to worry about our patches destroying your characters or ships,” the developer wrote.

“This patch will wipe everything– characters, ships and worlds. It will definitely be the last time we’ll need to wipe characters or ships, and will hopefully be the last time we’ll need to wipe worlds.”

The patch also adds two new difficulty-increasing modes to the game: Permadeath and Drop-everything-on-death mode. There’s also the addition of new weapons such as revolvers, pulse rifles, hand grenades, shivs, Floran needlers, and the Floran thorn hammer.
