Ships Ahoy - Sword of the Stars II: Enhanced Edition & Free DLC

Paradox Interactive announces the release of Sword of the Stars II: Enhanced Edition, an updated edition of Kerberos Productions strategy sequel. This includes all the updates released over the past year, all the game's DLC, and End of Flesh, a new DLC pack that adds new content and an entirely new faction. The new DLC is also being offered for free to owners of Sword of the Stars II in gratitude for suffering through the game's early woes, as they say: "Paradox and Kerberos would like to thank their audience for their patience and support as they worked hard on getting Sword of the Stars II: Lords of Winter into its current condition." Here's a feature list:

  •  The new Loa race with a new drive for their ships the Neutrino Pulse Gate
  • Over 25 new technologies including a new tech tree for cybernetics
  • 10 new weapons and attack systems
  • Expanded ship building options for all six original factions, including new Leviathan class ships
  • 2 new independent races to seduce or bludgeon into your imperial orbit
  • New random encounters and mission types
  • All previously released faction based DLC the voices, the badges, the avatars, the skins...all of it

You'll either love it or hate it. Personally it is a massive letdown for me. The interface tweaks are better now but if you think it is an improved sots1 then you will be disappointed.

Hivers are plain broken, they are frustrating to play once you are in the mid/end game due to the way the game forces you to participate in battles that are not necessarily your own.

It is still quite long winded to find a system with a certain spec and colonize it. The steps taken to reach, survey and colonize can be awkward for many races.

I havent tried the LOA yet but first indications are that the LOA are a micromanage race that needs babysitting.

I'd pass unless you have nothing else to play.
 
Its not the cough that carries you off but the coffin they carry you off in.
