STARS IN SHADOW DLC ‘LEGACIES’ TO RELEASE SEPTEMBER ’17
Haarlem, The Netherlands – Publisher Iceberg Interactive and developer Ashdar Games announce the release of Legacies , the first DLC for Stars in Shadow, their critically acclaimed vivid tribute to 4X classics . In Legacies ancient races who are re-emerging after the Great War will return as a playable faction and as a minor faction. The DLC is currently slated for a September 2017 release, with an SRP of $4.99.
It’s been three thousand years after the Great War and the collapse of the hyperspace lanes. The galaxy is reawakening, thanks to an unknown influence who has restored the war planes back into operation. Who restored the war planes, and for what purpose?
Legacies introduces a new playable faction, the cyborg Tinkers. The Tinkers are a race of cyborgs who worship Dzibix, an ancient mega machine located on their arid homeworld that has grown to cover most of the planet and has achieved at least minimal self-awareness. To appease their machine god the dutiful Tinkers have converted themselves into cyborgs and remade their society as a cybernetic civilization.
Also joining the galaxy is new minor faction: the hyperspace-dwelling Arda Seed. The Arda Seed will employ a number of new starship and station types, and make special use of several new gameplay features.
The Arda Seed faction represents the next step in uncovering the story of the causes behind the Great War, which will continue to be expanded upon in upcoming DLC.
New playable faction: Tinkers
New population type: cyborgs
New planetary special: Planetary Debris Rings and Asteroid Bases
Space Habitats and Re-deployable Mobile Stations
New minor faction: Arda Seed
New “Hyperspace Anomaly” locations
Technology Boosts and Researchable Artifacts
