Black Lab Games and Slitherine Ltd. have announced a new expansion for Battlestar Galactica Deadlock.
The sci-fi strategy game’s new expansion, Anabasis, is launching on October 18th. The new content will include a new game mode, 4 new munition types, 11 new maps, and 12 new missions.
The Skirmish Mode is perhaps the largest addition, which tasks players with leading a customizable fleet back to Caprica in an FTL-like procedurally generated campaign format.
Resources are limited and your fleet will be hunted by the ever-looming threat of the numerically superior Cylon armada. You can read more here, and check out a trailer above.
Here’s a rundown of the game:
The Cylons have rebelled!
Four years of war and a steep price in human lives have not been enough to unlock a deadly stalemate. The Colonials have countered all of the Cylon’s offensives so far, but no decisive victory was achieved.
The deadlock is suddenly broken by a surprise attack from the Cylons and the brutal annihilation of the Colonial Fleet High Command on Picon. The fate of mankind is now resting on the shoulders of Rear-Admiral Lucinda Cain.
The secret, cunning plan she has conceived could turn the tide of the war forever…
BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Deadlock takes you into the heart of the First Cylon War, to fight epic 3D battles that will test your tactical prowess.
Take control of the Colonial Fleet from the bridge of the mobile shipyard, Daidalos, and free the Twelve Colonies from the Cylon threat. Build your fleets, protect the Quorum alliance and prepare to dig deeper into the conspiracies of this heroic conflict.
