New Dead Star DLC and Events
Armature Studio today unveiled its plans to keep the Dead Star community on its toes, with new DLC and free community events (including cameos from other gaming franchises) coming to the multiplayer space combat game.
Three new ships are coming to Dead Star when the game’s first add-on pack, the Kurg Ship Expansion, arrives for Steam and PlayStation 4 on April 26th. The Kurg Ship Expansion adds new gameplay mechanics and strategies to the multiplayer space combat game, as well as four additional pilot portraits featuring the Kurg species. The Kurg Ship Expansion is priced at $4.99, with players able to try the new ships in Free Play mode before purchase.
The Ordo Robots Skin Pack ($1.99) will also release the same day, providing players with additional customization options in the form of two new robotic pilot portraits and four new ship skins that can be applied to all ships in the game.
In anticipation of the new content, Dead Star will see its first community event — the Homeworld Fame Boost Weekend — take place during this coming weekend, April 22nd through April 25th, providing those that play during the specified window with:
- Boosted Fame, enabling players to get better rewards and increase their pilot levels faster.
- An exclusive reward featuring a cameo from Gearbox Software’s Homeworld space strategy series: a free pilot portrait of Rachel S’jet from Gearbox Software and Blackbird Interactive’s Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak.
