Publisher Iceberg Interactive and developer LGM Games announce a new Cycle of
Warfare DLC is coming to Starpoint Gemini Warlords on October 5th, saying this
is their biggest content expansion ever. They offer
this trailer with a
look, and a bunch of details:
The Cycle of Warfare DLC brings several features that dramatically expand the
game with over 100 hours of additional conquest and scenario gameplay. In this
new expansion, players will be able to start their conquest over the Gemini
system as one of three established factions, each with their own rivals and
advantages: Iolian Pact, Korkyra, and Outerlands.
In addition, two new challenge scenarios are included. Play as the A'shriari,
the unforgiving alien race bent on humanity's extinction, or choose the life of
an ambitious privateer and lead your clan to wealth and glory. Both challenges
modify the game's rules in different ways, moving away from empire management
towards riskier gameplay.
The A'shriari are convinced that the only way to complete victory is a brutal
scorched-earth military strategy. In the A'shriari scenario players will be able
Fly and command capital ships of an exclusive new alien ship line, from
gunships to carriers;
Vanquish all human life from the Gemini system by shutting down all of
Fire a massive weapon directly from their mothership, burning planets
and vaporizing all means of sustaining life.
These conquest scenarios can be easily modified in-game to allow the players
to customize their own starting advantage as they see fit.
Owners of the base game will also discover new content such as encounters with
rare enemy alien ships that will drop epic equipment.
Five new playable factions: Iolian Pact, Korkyra, Outerlands, A'shriari,
Three new conquest scenarios
Two new challenge scenarios
New ship line, a new weapon and new ability (as the A'shriari)
I bought into the other DLC. This time I will skip it. The story and game play is not that great. The universe is copy/paste from the last game. The rushed patches to get the DLC out. Pretty much shows you what the focus is. DLC over properly patching the game. Do to these antics they lost a beta tester. I will wait for a sale now after it goes gold. The DLC is very likely content already in the game and cut to sale back to us at a later date. The devs are great at responding to the community but shady things are starting.
