Haarlem, The Netherlands – 22 June 2016 – The second official DLC for turn-based 4x space strategy game StarDrive 2 (PC/Mac/Linux) has landed. Having released its first DLC back in March of this year titled ‘Sector Zero’, one-man-team studio Zero Sum Games is at it again and is now releasing ‘Shipyards’ today. This new DLC expands upon the base game by adding 13 new customizable ship hulls, new fighters and many more additions and features, and is available at $ 4,99.

The Shipyards pack includes:

  • 13 new customizable ship hulls ranging from the smallest corvettes to two HUGE new Titan class hulls
  • Each of these hulls has a special passive ability to differentiate it from other ships on the field. Some ships gain bonuses with certain weapons while others may have increased defensive capabilities
  • A new fighter and heavy fighter expand your force projection powers when using these new hulls
  • All of the new ships employ a dynamic weapon turret system. Depending on the size and number of weapons installed on your ships, you will see weapon turrets appear on your ships that track their targets independently!
  • Two new heroes join the roster in this content pack: Wyatt, the Notorious Outlaw, and Vos, the Master Engineer! Their powerful abilities will surely help you win your next Brutal-difficulty run, won’t they?

  1. Excellente extrapolation du gameplay de Master of Orion 2, que ce Stardrive 2 ! Dommage que le développeur ne s’attèle à peaufiner davantage les bases techniques du jeu avant d’ajouter du contenu.
