Tark Week Begins With New Character DLC For The Pit!



In a simultaneous release, Kerberos Productions has unveiled new DLC for their two most recent games, Sword of the Stars: The Pit and Sword of the Stars: Ground Pounders. As both feature the alien Tarka race it was only natural to name this Tark Week!

The Pit: Juggernaut introduces Pit fans to a new playable character, the Tarka mercenary, Tor. The Juggernaut DLC adds new weapons and weapon variants, new items, new monsters, and over 50 new craft recipes, including ammo conversion recipes! Found lots of ammo, but for the wrong gun? There’s a recipe for that. The addition of Tor brings the number of player characters in the series to 11!

“After all the other characters we tossed into The Pit”, Said producer Christopher Stewart. “Fans were keen to play as a Tarkas changed male, one of the largest and most powerful characters in the SotSverse, and our loremaster Arinn Dembo was more than happy to oblige.”

Get the The Pit: Juggernaut here!

Note: The Juggernaut DLC requires The Pit: Gold to play. It does not require The Pilgrim DLC.

Mac and Linux depots builds will be available Friday, September 26th.

---

Filling out the alien character types found in the Sword of the Stars universe comes The Pit: Juggernaut - take control of a massive, changed Tarka male,Tor Makari, a clanless mercenary, born on the Tarka Freehold of Kor Daia. Summoned to Arbuda by the promise of a huge reward, he is here to rescue a kidnapped Human from a high-security alien facility and pull down the biggest bounty of his career. As a changed male, Tor is big, bad, and do not let his lumbering manner fool you - he is no dummy. He is a force to be reckoned with, nigh unstoppable. He is a... JUGGERNAUT!

Features

  • New playable character, the Tarka male, Tor!
  • New recipes, including ammo conversion recipes!
  • New weapons and weapon variants!
  • New items!
  • New monsters!
  • New achievements!

Sword of the Stars: The Pit Pilgrim DLC now full Steamplay (PC/Mac/Linux)!

Yesterday we formally announced that Sword of the Stars: The Pit was a full Steamplay title. The Mac version had been out for awhile, and the Linux version was available the last few weeks, but we wanted to knock some bugs out before telling the world. Which we did, formally, yesterday.

We then went on to say that the Pilgrim DLC, the content addition to the game that followed the Gold edition, would be available soon.

Turns out that "soon" meant "tomorrow". But who's complaining, right?

So, if you own a copy of the Pilgrim DLC, you can now apply it to your Mac and Linux, as well as PC version of the game!

Good luck! Try not to get killed before floor ten!

"There is such a wealth to do and upgrade that it never feels like you’re saying the same game twice."
8/10 - Game Podunk

"The Pit delivers a solid experience and should be a must buy for fans of the genre. And remember, in space, no one can hear you scream as you die for the forty-second time."

À propos de ce jeu

A deadly plague ravages your world. Your last hope: a legendary alien facility dug deep into the Feldspar Mountains...a massive Pit, built by the ancient Suul'ka.

If 'The Pit' really exists, there might be something left. Something that will give your doctors a fighting chance at the cure.

All you know for sure is that every expedition into those mountains has failed to return...

And Nothing Sows Death Like the Suul'ka.

Quamdiu Poteris Superesse?

Sword of the Stars: The Pit is a fun, fast, light-hearted turn-based RPG, where the tradition of Rogue and other old school dungeon-diving games meets the sci-fi Sword of the Stars universe, where the question to ask isn't "Did you make it to the end?" so much as "How far did you make it into The Pit before the monsters got you?"

Be brave, press on for the sake of your planet, and when all else fails, go out in a blaze of glory!

Key Features


  • 3 Characters to choose from... Marine, Pilot and Engineer!
  • 30 Levels of ancient evil science between you and the cure!
  • Improve your character and increase your skills as you try and find a way to survive the depths.
  • Dozens and dozens of enemies drawn from the Sword of the Stars universe!
  • Over 50 weapons and armors with a variety of special effects including flamethrowers, rocket launchers, plasma cannons and powered Brawler armor!
  • Randomized augmentation effects (for your equipment... and for you!) make each game unique.
  • Crafting lets you make special items from bits and pieces of your enemies.
  • Over 100 items to discover, ranging from the familiar to ancient exotic tech.
  • Dozens of room types containing a host of exotic devices to help - or maybe hinder - your progress.
  • Discover and decipher hidden messages, crafting recipes, and pieces of Sword of the Stars lore!
  • Many fiendish ways to die including poisoning, disease, traps, radiation, starvation and of course... MONSTERS.

New trailer has the Darkest of the Hillside Thickets song Space Ghosts. That means, regardless of how good the game is or isn't, it is the best game ever.

this is not really a bad game, but the random elements are huge even for a roguelike i do like random elements since they give replayablity and you have to challange yourself to overcome challanges.

but this game have taken the random one step futher, even your stats on level up gets randomized, so you'll have no idea how good/bad you'll be in things meaning you can possibly not even use your resources since the randomization gave you 1 skillpoint in said skill 3 times in a row.

basically it's a stardard roguelike with more random elements then normal, if you like that then this is a game for you, it only frustrates me since i can't plan anyting.

Hands down my favorite rogue-like on steam. ( I <3 U 2 FTL )
I've put in over 125 hours of starvation, ammo depletion, broken equipment and death and death and death. I love it and I still have yet to get close to beating this game. Not only did the game start with a crazy amount of resources, recipes, weapons, monsters and skills, but they kept adding to it! New characters, psi abilities more recipes and monsters. What do I do will all this random junk in my backpack, everything can be used to craft something new. And on top of that it has a great Sci-Fi dungeon crawl feel. Starving, saving your laser ammo until your skills are up and worrying if your combat knife is going to break on the next attack. The greatest game I've never beat!

For fiction in general, not just videogames, there are works which attribute their success to being innovative and others that rely on typical genre conventions but are constructed well enough that generic elements fail to make them weaker as stories/movies/games/whatever. Between these two loosely defined and ocassionally overlapping categories, Sword of the Stars: The Pit is the latter. If you have experience with roguelikes, especially older ones, you have seen the elements that make it up before: heavily randomized level layouts, a prominent hunger mechanic to penalize idleness, and turn-based movement and combat. If all you care about is new game mechanics, this roguelike may not be for you.

Yet what Sword of the Stars: The Pit lacks in innovation it more than makes up for in polish, setting, and play style diversity. Each of the classes, with or without the additional ones from DLC, feels sufficiently different that relying on the same strategies in a universal manner is going to get you killed. With a host of stats and systems for gunplay, psychic powers and melee combat there is a class or two for everyone.


Chances are you will still die, of course. As rogue-likes go, this one is relatively forgiving, but the key word is relatively. You will still ♥♥♥♥ up and get murdered or starve, possibly several times in a row if you are unlucky or careless. If all you care about is getting to the end of a game, this probably isn't for you. If you can accept and embrace failure, however, Sword of the Stars has plenty of fun to be had on the way to the reaper.

Lack of shop system doesn't put a numeric value on anything, leaving viability up to the user and the commuity around the game.

It's ♥♥♥♥ing glorious.

For fans of the genre, it's highly recommended. It's challenging and engrossing. You'll lose hours upon hours in it.

A roguelike dungeon crawly old-schooly RPG game where everything from traps and diseases and baddies kill you or get you close to death real fast even on lower difficulties. Not quite a fan of the artstyle but it's at least quite fun.
Personally though it's not quite interesting enough for me to finish.

This game is immense....whether your a hardcore rpg fan or strategy gamer.....its got such randomness and challenges....you want to go in for more.

The support from devs and constant updates...make it evolve so you want more......that one more turn...like civ...but a roguelike dungeon crawler of sheer epicness..

If your reading this.....just dive in. seriously

I have never bought into a game so much as to keep up with and purchase every single DLC as they come out, but I find myself so drawn into The Pit that I can't help but stay on top of new DLC releases. This is a first for me as a gamer, one who is so jaded by DLC (CoD map packs, Blizzard expansions that cost as much as the original title, etc.), and should speak volumes of the incredible replayability and entertainment that this game provides.

This game is a cult classic rouge like game that pits you (no pun intended) against hundereds upon hundreds of monsters lurking in the dark rooms of the pit. I love this game because you never know whats going to pop out at the next turn, the randomness of the game can be a little frustrating at times but you get used to it around your second play through. Ive spent about twenty hours in this game and have nothing bad to say except for the fact that crafting seems underutillized. more item variety should spawn from drops but it walways feels like the same three things spawn leaving little crafting to be done. I highly recommend this game and all of its current add-ons. 9/10

A good rogue-like with a fun sci-fi theme, plenty of classes, skills and crafting to make each playthrough as unique as the player would like.

Vraiment excellent, très bon univers et on souhaite s'y replonger à chaque try sans voir le temps passer. Les DLC apportent un vrai plus, c'est du tout bon. Par contre faut pas se le cacher, c'est dur, vraiment dur. Mais vous allez en redemander, croyez moi.

Foncez!
