Developer Kerberos Productions announced an expansion pack for Sword of the Stars: The Pit.
The expansion pack, Mind Games, is being planned for an official release sometime in July. A beta copy of the add-on will be available for purchase in June.
Among the huge list of additions, the game will include two brand new modes: Infinite and Seriously. Both game modes add a new spin on the regular single player mode.
The DLC will include two new characters–an alien ranger and a human capable of using psionics. Each has their own unique stats and abilities. They will not just have to deal with the 30 floors already present in the game but must overcome an extra 10 floors. The new floors will be accompanied by new enemies, traps, weapons, items and recipes players can craft from objects they find while exploring.
Exploration will be made even more interesting with new psionic powers that changes the way players will survive and fight enemies. However, the powers won’t give players a one-sided advantage as new enemy types can also use psionics. This, along with the other changes, means gamers are undoubtedly in for an even more difficult descent into the planet.
Sword of the Stars: The Pit was released on March. It is the first independently published game by Kereberos Productions, thanks in part to a successful fundraiser held on Indiegogo. A spinoff of the science-fiction themed strategy game Sword of the Stars, the game is a turn-based rougelike RPG where players must descend into a planet decimated by plague in order to acquire a cure rumored to be inside the planet. Players must stave off attacks from the planet’s unfriendly occupants and fight off hunger and traps.
