, a new DLC pack adding new units, new scenarios, and new maps for

Secret Missions includes two new frigates, one for each playable faction:
- PHC Atlas - This anti-air, anti-drone
frigate is an excellent line of defense against Drone Hives. Since it only

but inexpensive, alternative to the Apollo cruiser.
- Substrate Tormentor - This indirect fire
frigate is capable of saturating an area with artillery shells, causing
damage to anything in its radius of attack. Although it lacks accuracy and
direct single target damage, the Tormentor is at its most powerful against
groups of units rather than structures.
There are also 8 new scenarios in the DLC that cater to players who enjoy
large, late-game battles and tactical flexibility. "These scenarios are designed
to put players in unique situations that are unlike any in the already existing
campaigns and scenarios," said McCole. "There are missions for both the PHC and
the Substrate, all of which focus heavily on late-game units and large armies.
Some may require you to destroy an enemy base or protect an allied base, while
others may focus on stopping your enemy from achieving critical mass of Turinium."
