Armistice et Modern Ships, prochains DLC pour Battlestar Galactica Deadlock

Slitherine dévoile aujourd’hui non pas un mais deux prochains add-ons pour son jeu de batailles spatiales emmenant en beauté les amiraux de l’espace dans l’univers sans pitié de Galactica. Sans pitié, oui, car quiconque a déjà essayé de négocier avec des robots sait que ces derniers manquent beaucoup d’humour, c’est évident, mais surtout de l’art de la maîtrise du non-dit qui caractérise si bien l’humanité. Spécialement en temps de guerre. Mais, après tout, à l’origine ces robots n’ont pas été inventés pour parlementer, sur ce point au moins on ne peut leur reprocher leur binarité les poussant obstinément à vouloir éradiquer, par erreur de jugement, leurs créateurs.

Passons sur ces considérations et revenons à nos Cylons. Suite à l’audacieuse offensive Ghost Fleet, les grille-pains ont donc perdu du terrain. Mais l’IA ennemie n’avait pas émit son dernier bit. En secret, elle préparait une super-arme pour nous annihiler. Devinez qui va encore devoir aller expliquer aux robots que, non, vraiment, ce n’est pas la quantité qui fait la qualité, fusse d’une explosion.

C’est ce que cette nouvelle campagne vous permettra de démontrer dans une course contre la montre au travers de huit missions, ultime affrontement devant mettre un terme à la Première Guerre Cylon. C’est à dire à la seconde saison d’extensions du jeu.

En parallèle, vous aurez aussi droit à un lot de nouveaux vaisseaux, trois pour chaque camp, et à une mise à jour gratuite elle allant ajouter un mode photo, améliorer le mode multijoueurs ou encore équilibrer les combats et les performances du jeu (voyez le détail dans le communiqué suivant).

New Resource Mission

Nine resource missions available for you to challenge in any Season Two story campaign.

New Music

Three epic musical pieces from award-winning composer Ash Gibson Greig that bring the world of Battlestar Galactica Deadlock to life.

 

Battlestar Galactica Deadlock Modern Ships Pack DLC

From the behemoth Mercury class battlestar, to the iconic Modern Basestar, this ship pack contains six ships of the modern era of Battlestar Galactica. These ships can be used in Skirmish, Multiplayer and in the Season 01 DLC Anabasis.

Please note that these ships are not playable in the story campaigns.

Colonial Ships

Colonial Mercury – Heavy Modern Battlestar
The Mercury class battlestar is a pinnacle of Colonial Fleet naval engineering. Equipped with unprecedented armour and firepower, the Mercury is perhaps best known for its stacked inverted ventral flightpods for exceptional fighter support.

Colonial Valkyrie – Support Battlestar
The Battlestar Valkyrie is a type of battlestar that would prove popular in the years following the First Cylon War. Its small frame is heavily armed, allowing for a highly maneuverable artillery package.

Colonial Viper Mk VII – Modern Space Superiority Fighter
The unparalleled Colonial fighter.

Cylon Ships

Cylon Modern Basestar – Command Ship
Unlike their predecessors, these basestars relied solely on missile and fighter deployments for protection. These modern basestar utilised an organic hull resin, which allowed structural damage to be repaired quickly.

Cylon Guardian Basestar – Basestar Prototype
Although the development of this basestar is shrouded in secrecy, it is understood that it escaped Operation Raptor Talon with the prophetic Hybrid prototype, and a cadre of Centurions.

Modern Raider – Modern Cylon Fighter
The ultimate evolution of Cylon fighter technology.
