Gratuitous Space Battles
This trailer shows off the new expansion pack for Gratuitous Space Battles, titled The Swarm. The Swarm adds a new race, 10 new ships, new weapons and ship modules, two new scenarios, and the GSB online system.
At least that was the goal, but now it's Praetorian Industries who is becoming more powerful, using its fleet of vessels previously used for testing prototypes. Now they're not only selling belical technologies, they also seek to end the war with them as winners.
What happens when it leaves the path of intelligence? What happens when it choses to exploit other capabilities of life? What happens when it choses instinct, and it triumphs over intelligence and it keeps advancing without limits?....The Plague happens....An entire fleet of insectoids guided by the most pure form of collective instict. The pleasure and willing to fight to death, enjoying the taste of blood and flesh is their every day routine.
Design your ships, build your fleets then pitch them in hands-off battles against the AI or other players. GSB2 is currently in development (as of September 2014). Footage is not final quality.
This new race comes with 10 new ship designs, the new holographic decoy projector, multi-target locking tractor beam modules, twin-stage rockets and more. Plus two new scenarios to fight against. The expansion pack requries the base game 'gratuitous space battles' to play.
Gratuitous Space Battles aims to bring the over-the-top explodiness back into space games. The game is for everyone who has watched big space armadas battle it out on TV and thought to themselves 'I could have done a much better job as admiral'.
This demo shows off Gratuitous Space Battles, the game that drops you into a huge space battle being fought in the name of something-or-other of no consequence.
