Campaign Expansion Pack!
GALACTIC CONQUEST: This add-on for GSB adds a whole new way to play. Individual battles become engagements in a larger war for control of the galaxy. Start on a lone home planet, and build fleets to conquer enemy planets and take their resources. Dozens of new features like ship repair, capturing enemy ships, a retreat option, and many, many more make this almost another whole game. And it's just $6.99! NOTE: This campaign add-on is, um, an add-on; you must have the basic or collector's edition of the game, above. You don't have to have any of the other expansions, though the campaign will use them if you have them. Did we mention it's JUST $6.99?? Go get it!
PARASITES: Adds a new race interested in finding hosts for their immature larvae. Ten new ships, three new weapon types, one new scenario, and new ship bonuses. $5.99.
The TRIBE: Adds a new race of starfaring folk. Eleven new ships, one new weapon type, enhanced repair modules, and new ship bonuses. The Tribe uses kinetic weapons instead of energy, repair quickly, and rely on super-strong hulls. $5.99; included in the Collector's Edition above.
The ORDER: A group of religious zealots. Ten new ships, four new weapon types, new bonuses and two new scenarios to battle in. $5.99; included in the Collector's Edition above.
The SWARM: This new race relies on multitudes of weaker ships. Ten new ships, four new modules for ships, new bonuses, two new scenarios. $5.99; included in the Collector's Edition above.
The NOMADS: This race of enemies has no homeworld; they roam the galaxy looking for battles as sport. The pack includes the new race, with ten new ships, five new weapons and equipment for ships, and speed bonuses.
Or get The Nomads, The Swarm, The Order, and the Tribe for just $9.99!

Attention Mac App Store Purchasers: the Galactic Conquest pack requires an online key, which doesn't come with the Mac App Store version (that's why it's $6 less expensive). If you'd like to add online play, please email your Mac App Store receipt for GSB to us (email@example.com) and we'll send you a link so you can purchase an online key for the $6 price difference. Thanks!
