About This Content

The ever-expanding conflicts within and between the TEC, Vasari, and Advent have pushed the battlegrounds into uncharted space. The sectors now being drawn into the war feature the most dangerous and powerful natural phenomena in the galaxy.

Exploit what resources remain in these dangerous sectors while you can. The uncharted depths of space hold threats beyond any natural phenomenon, and not all of them wait to be explored.

Key Features

  • New stars: Skirt the boundary of a deadly black hole, avoid the deadly radiation of a spinning pulsar, and survive the crushing gravity of an impossibly dense neutron star.
  • 6 new deep space anomalies: Mine the riches in the wreckage of a devastating fleet battle or recharge at an inexplicable fountain of antimatter tearing apart the fabric of space-time. Each anomaly’s all-new gameplay effect adds variety and strategic opportunities to every map.
  • 11 dramatic random events: The fate of not just your empire but the galaxy at large will change in a heartbeat with Stellar Phenomena’s random events enabled. Stars launch volatile gases that shut down orbital operations, mobile storms wreak havoc across the solar system, and conquered factions sense your weakness and seek to reclaim their worlds.

It is worth buying if you want it. Try to catch it on 50% or the really rare 75% sale for the best value.
It adds a bit of content that breathes a little life into your games with storms and other items to ruin your and your enemy's days.

Something that will make it worth 100% worth it is if you use the Online features of Sins,
They have it setup so that the host shares his DLC with all player joined, an especially fantastic feature and I'm glad Stardock included this! Same applies to Forbidden worlds.

I would have troubles recommending this at full price but, in reality it adds some basic functionality that can move a locked up game. Useful for singleplayer especially.

7/10 a Useful DLC that breathes more life into your solar system but may not be worth it at full price.

Honestly a good little DLC for its prize. Worth it, adds a bit of flavor and the random events can cripple you. Probably won't really bother you in a game against AI but in games against players they can turn it around sometimes.

The added star types are mostly annoying to get stuck with and random events mostly means constant CME's to shut your orbital structures down.

It adds some new flavor to the game but it needs to have more dlc or even hints of sins 2.
