Gratuitous Space Conquest!
I always felt there was something missing from the original game when I first played it. As fun as I found the task of micro-designing each ship, one-off battles didn't have the same impact as a win or defeat against a long term opponent would have had.
However now you can play GSB in a long term campaign. The best bit though, the best bit is that the fleets you'll come across were designed by other players! Which means you'll get twice as much satisfaction in crushing them into stardust. Nice.
I don't own any of the DLC yet as I've been waiting for this but now I'll be seriously thinking about getting the DLC bundle (which includes the 4 add-on races) as well as this conquest mode DLC - a bit pricey to have absolutely everything but I'm almost convinced that it's worth it.
Hopefully I'll feel like writing a full review of the whole caboodle once I've had a play with this so stay tuned for that. In the meantime, why not watch this video of the campaign mode in action...
For more info I guess you should visit the official GSB site!
