Sword of the Stars add-on Born of Blood is designed to increase the diversity, tactical depth and replay value. This expansion will unleash a new alien race, a new form of strategic movement, new ship sections, new weapons, new technologies, new scenarios and new unknown menaces.

Sword of the Stars originally released worldwide in August 2006, is a breakthrough 4X space strategy game that takes gamers back to the action-packed roots of the 4X genre enhanced with new features, including a 3D starmap and real-time combat resolution in a 3D environment. Most importantly, all this was brought to players with online multiplayer abilities unmatched in the genre. Born of Blood is an essential upgrade for anyone involved in the Sword of the Stars universe. The add-on requires the original base game to run.

Defeat a New Enemy Race in the Action-packed Official Add-on to Sword of the Stars.

The year is 2445. Over 30 years have passed since the first stellar empires began to expand. Four races once set out to explore and conquer the galaxy, meeting in fiery clashes that spanned the universe. The first wars have passed and a promising age of diplomacy dawns.

Now a new alien race emerges shattering the uneasy peace. With new drive systems, ships, technology, and tactics, the Zuul burst onto the scene with a devastating agenda ? not only will they conquer, they will control the entire universe? unless you put a stop to their destruction.

With savage ships and psychic powers, they enslave or annihilate all those who oppose them. As their galley disks descend to harvest slaves from neighboring races, all other empires may be forced to put aside their grudges ? if they do not unite against the Zuul, each race will be systematically exterminated. Form alliances and learn to work with your foes as you lead your fleets to victory in a universe at war in Sword of Stars: Born of Blood.

Features :

  • Play as the merciless Zuul Slavers with over 90 brand-new ship sections and their unique drive system ? the Tunnel Drive
  • Over 25 additional technologies, including new diplomacy and intelligence gathering techs
  • 15 more weapons you can add to your ship designs
  • New ship sections for the original four races, including: War, Projector, Boarding, and a new type of defense satellite ? the Torpedo Defense Platform
  • 4 additional galactic encounters, a new grand menace, plus 3 unique scenarios and 6 original maps
  • New game features, including Slavery, Trade Routes, and Diplomatic Communications

The game will be available for purchase as a direct download at various major portals like beginning June 6th ($24.99/ €24.99). The retail version is expected to hit retail shelves by the end of June 2007 in the UK and various other European territories.
