Stardock has released a new free DLC for Star Control: Origins, called Reinforcements. According to the press release, this free DLC nearly doubles the amount of playable vessels for the Fleet Battles mode, allowing players to experience additional depth when putting their fleets together for combat.
Each new vessel has a unique weapon loadout and a sleek new design. All of the new ships are available for multiplayer and competitive play and have been carefully balanced for an equal and fun gameplay experience for all players.
In addition to the free DLC, a v1.3 update also released today. The update adds new features in order to entice additional exploration during the main game, including uncovering rumors of a Scryve super weapon, improved controls on the main Vindicator ship, and powerful new weapons waiting to be discovered. New weapons have also been added to the crafting menu, including the Fragmentation Missile, Rapid Laser, and more.
