About This Content

  • Betrayal Mode: Ignore your ideals and conquer the solar system with armadas of your own!
  • Invasion Mode: Obscura invaders have already wiped out one race, and now threaten all the others. Can you rally a counterattack?
  • 17 new ships, 2 new solar system backgrounds, 32 new abilities, 19 new achievements, 13 new music tracks, and 5 new quests!

About The Expansion


Betrayal Mode reverses the usual game flow, making you a full planetary power trying to achieve solar domination — adding a new layer of 4X onto the existing game. You gain the ability to command armadas and ground troops, and the meaning behind political deals is very much shifted. Rather than working toward unity, you attempt to destroy all your foes through subterfuge, war, and temporary alliances.

Invasion Mode sees you working with the other races to survive slaughter by a grave new threat, putting yet another major spin on things. Forming the federation isn’t a priority when you are trying to keep a terror from consuming the entire system.

Plus new ships, abilities, music, and more!

Further evidence that Arcen has created a device that reads minds, when I was playing vanilla TLF, I found it quite fun with lots of replayablility. But I always thought (Mainly when dealing with the Burlust or Thoraxians), "YOU KNOW WHAT, SCREW YOU GUYS, IM GONNA FORM MY OWN FEDERATION, WITH BLACKJACK AND HOOKERS". So Arcen has then procided to make an incredibly cheap DLC that adds the "Betrayal" mode which lets me enact my power fantasy of destroying all those bloody thoraxians that think their too good for federations.

Arcen, continue doing what you do best, making games that ♥♥♥♥ on paper but are actually really fun (Seriously, what sort of thing is a "Turn based bullethell"?)

It's a really good DLC and I would recommend it. The betrayal mode twists the games mechanics and presents you with the challenge of commanding a space army. It's a very fun and challenging mode (however sometimes upgrading the armardas can be a bit fiddley) and it adds even more levels of complexity.

The other mode, invasion, isn't really my cup of tea. It seems a little similiar to the default mode except with an even more aggresive version of the burlusts. Regardless, it's an interesting mode and I think the majority of people might enjoy it more than me.

Besides the two main additions, there are many other things added, such as brilliant new sound tracks, 2 different backrounds and new abilities.

Overall I think this is worth the cost and I think it's a very fun DLC, after all: who doesn't want to command billions of robot armies and send them into battle?

For those who have struggled to keep the fragile peace between warring species and thought: I could do a better job of running a planet than any of you - now you can. Betrayal mode allows you to wage war with your hordes of mindless robots. If, instead you thought: What's the pressure of building up a federation? It's too easy and there's no threat. Now you have the Obscura invading and generally making life unpleasant for all involved.

Two new game modes means you'll at least have a few more play-throughs of the game before you get bored. Also, if you're looking at this and haven't played the base game in a while maybe you should. Most of the changes (barring the new game modes) are included in the base game as standard updates. So any bugs you found are probably squashed, the mechanics have had an overhaul so they'll feel different. Also the updates never knowingly break save games so you could even carry on any old game you started and see how it feels and looks after a few months of polish.

I do like Arcen games for the speed of updates, efficiency and creativity. I'm sure this will be a game to come back and play year-on-year. But you don't need to wait for it to get better, it's already there.
