The developers claim the game will not be pay to win, at all. The limitations on free accounts will be limited inventory & hangar space. That's it they claim, paid accounts will only get extra slots and some in-game credits. Paid accounts will take form of three DLC packages at $10, $30 and $60 (or the equivalent in your country on Steam). To me, that seems somewhat reasonable.

Their description of the game on Steam doesn't really give a good idea of what we'll find:
QuoteSince 2012, we've been working on a sophisticated recipe that produces a unique gameplay:

• Take a handful of projectiles, another of vicious enemies and a few ripe bosses
• Add a good amount of ships, abilities and equipment
• Sprinkle with a light dose of randomness for a pleasant change
• Mix strongly with a good amount of teamwork and conquest until your preparation becomes epic

Your game is ready to serve!

I will likely take a look at it after release, to see if it's worth your time.
