New! Revenge of the Snathi DLC

The Snathi have risen from the ashes of their Precursor prison world. They have only one goal: revenge. The Snathi have vowed to put down those who kept them from taking from their rightful place as the heirs of the Dread Lords.

No race is safe from the true face of EVIL... even if it is as cute as a button.

Features [Show]

  • The Snathi Revenge - The Snathi are an
      ancient race of extremely intelligent and
      bloodthirsty squirrel-like creatures. They
      were created by the Dread Lords as the
      ultimate weapon, but were locked away…
      until now.
  • Revenge of the Snathi Campaign -
      Lead the Snathi as they break free from
      their prison world to take their place as
      the face of evil in the galaxy.
  • New ships - Completely new Snathi ship
      styles and ship parts.
  • The Artifact - The “Scavenge” ability
      allows Snathi to salvage the ships of their
      vanquished foes.
