About This Content

Awesomenauts: Starstorm is an expansion pack for Awesomenauts, and will bring you new characters, a replay feature and spectator mode, custom games, and much more. Starstorm currently unlocks Ted McPain, Penny Fox, Sentry X-58, Skree, Team Deathmatch mode and custom game settings. An additional character, spectator mode a new map and many more features will be added later for everyone owning the Starstorm expansion.

The universe is in turmoil as the ever-enduring stalemate between the droid armies of the Ones and Zeros reaches a fever-pitch! Millions of battles have been fought across the scorched wastelands of Sorona, the dense jungle reservation of Ribbit IV, on AI Station 404’s installations and inside the recently discovered mystical temple of Aiguillon.

Meanwhile, in the Raki star system, a gigantic remnant of the first AI war drifts close to a burning star. This unfinished battle station, an abandoned relic of the first generation of robots, is called "The Starstorm." It was considered to be the ultimate weapon, holding the power to transform the energy from stars into a whirling mass of destruction. Its hull bears thousands of robot ground troops slumbering in their rusty sleep.

The space platform and its robotic legion were thought to be permanently powered down after the first AI war, and the station has been abandoned ever since. The Starstorm was never fully operational, until recently...

Emergency reports of the star imploding into a giant, burning, space storm indicate that the Starstorm has somehow been activated. The news of the clearly battle-ready station has drawn the attention of the Ones and Zeros, and both factions have sent their best teams to investigate and secure the station and gain control of the Starstorm’s destructive power!

The pieces are set, the eve of battle approaches once more! Awesomenauts, assemble!

Key Features

  • All-new 'Nauts - Starstorm will bring you five all-new Awesomenauts.

If you play Awesomenauts and YOU DON'T HAVE THIS! What are you doing with your life? It's one of the best DLC ever created.

*edit*

Also for those who bash this DLC for being Pay2win read the following below.

1. They aren't Pay2win, the characters are very easy to counter, the only reason your raging at this is either
A. Your greedy and don't want to pay for this DLC.
B. Cannot afford this DLC and bashing it for no reason.
C. The most common reason is that you got killed once by a Starstorm character meaning they are Pay2win because your the "greatest player in the world" and anyone killing you must be Pay2win or hacking.

2. I have created a series of popular guides to deal with this situation, while most people agree with me, most people just rage because Penny is too hard to kill despite being underpowered during the making of this review.

Don't listen to those who bash this DLC because it's Pay2win, it's not and it's one of the best DLC I have ever owned.
Actually now I think about it, anyone remember those amazing expansion packs games used to have like about 7 years ago like in Age of the Empires? And they just disappeared and replaced by lazy slapped together DLC like in every COD game? This DLC is an expanstion pack, full of awesome stuff and more stuff coming on the way, it's worth every penny.

After countless updates and the game going on massive sales, I'd say it's perfectly fine to pay the developers a bit extra for even more features and characters with new gameplay mechanics.

If you're thinking about getting this think no more you should get it now ! this dlc is really great and needed for the full experience of the game.
If you're thinking about why need a dlc when you already have the game, because the game went on so many sales to bring more players and 1$ bundles, so they as an indie company deserves our support and the purchase of this Dlc.
It gives you the ability to play with the new starstorm heroes, customizing your host, reviews replays and more.
Most games with full price that asks for another 20$ for a (Season pass) dlc, but this game was basically 1$ for months and now its price is in the Dlc and they really deserve it so give it a try

While I agree that it costs only 2€ less than the actual game is pretty absurd, I must say that it's a pretty good expansion.

You get 4 new characters, spectator mode and custom games (Includes deathmatch too). Also there's an upcoming map/event whatever it is, that we haven't seen yet.
They keep updating both the DLC and the game, so the DLC is slowly growing, and becoming worth the 8€ more and more.

I say if you play Awesomenauts a lot you should consider getting this, it's a really nice addition to the game.

PS: The reason why it's so overpriced is because Ronimo Games is just another indie developer, even though they have made craploads of money with the game they still need more if they wish to update this game for even longer.

If you're reading this, you probably have Awesomenauts, but if you don't, but it NOW.
If you have Awesomenauts, buy Starstorm NOW.
I don't even care about the new characters. Just the new music is worth its price.

the matchmaking will make you unhappy if youre trying to get high in leagues but the teamwork and sense of acomplishment when winning make the game worth it in the end. Can play this game all day/night. Very fun learning curve. 15/17, play all the time.

Dude, have you heard of this game called Awesomenauts? "Yeah man it's a pretty cool game" you might reply. Well you're wrong because it's an amazing game, and you better change that attitude or I'm liable to do something that years from now I may look back on and regret doing. You can redeem yourself by going ahead and picking up a copy of some fantastic DLC for you, your friends, and all of their grandmothers.

I actually just bought this to support Romino because I love their game and I want them to keep working on it! This doesn't seem to add very much to Awesomenauts, but I found it on a decent sale and decided to just buy it.

I get to play as a fox and a man without pants. More games need less pants. Especially applying to the foxes mentioned before.
