Sword of the Stars II: Enhanced Edition/Free DLC This Month

Paradox Interactive announces a new End of Flesh add-on is coming at the end of this month to expand Sword of the Stars II: Lords of Winter, Kerberos Studios' space strategy sequel. To compensate for what Paradox admits was a game that "didn't quite meet expectations," owners of Sword of the Stars II will receive the expansion for free, while going forward, the add-on will be incorporated into a new Sword of the Stars II: Enhanced Edition. Here's a trailer, and here are the details:

The “End of Flesh” expansion to “Sword of the Stars II” introduces players to the Loa, a shape shifting artificial intelligence that can settle some of the most foreboding of landscapes. A former slave race, they now have freedom and an incentive to use their powerful and unique vessels to teach their old masters a lesson.

Features of the Sword of the Stars II Enhanced Edition include:

  • 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.

Wait till the expansion is out and at least twice patched. Besides that I have a hard time praising them for this. We pre-order customers who did not take refunds PAID for this addon development and 1 year patching phase. Anything but free would be a punch in the face.

On the other hand, It is nice they still bother. But SOTS2 has issues beyond bugs. Namely that it lacks polish and has some extremely daft gameplay problems. Related to gates, engines, generally small tightly packed non-random maps and how supply works.

As long as there are no random maps I won't be playing this game anyway.
