Gratuitous Space Battles: The Tribe

Rating: 4 (102 votes cast)

The galactic war has gone on long enough. There is only one power in this galaxy that has the common sense to bring the fighting to an end, and now that power is about to be unleashed. Ladies, Gentlemen, Entities, I present to you the almighty power of the pan-species collection of idealistic space-hippies and bringers of galactic peace (through a short-term period of intense furious stellar warfare) - The TRIBE.

The Tribe are the latest race to enter the fray in Gratuitous Space Battles. Known for their patronizing attitude and their use of kinetic weapons, plus their cunning ability to somehow squeeze auto-repair systems into frigates, the tribe are here to sort out the warring factions and bring peace in our time.

The Tribe is an expansion pack for Gratuitous Space Battles. It's for people who have played the original game enough that they crave new ship designs and scenarios, and want more variety in the game. Expansion packs and DLC often get a bad press, so I'll be 100% up front about exactly what this pack contains and let you decide for yourself if you think it's worth getting:

What The Pack Contains:

11 New ships. 4 Cruisers 3 Frigates and 4 fighters, all in a new graphical style by the same artist who did the original GSB artwork.

1 New weapon type: The kinetic weapon. Basically autocannons, howitzers etc. These fire rapid-fire bursts which are good at short range, not so good at long range

Enhanced repair modules. The tribe are great at repair, and their repair modules are race-specific and out-perform everyone else's.

New ship bonuses. The tribe ships have only half the shield and armor strength of everyone else, but they have twice as strong hulls as their opponents. This means Tribe ships seem to be on-fire and falling apart for half the battle. It also means you need to re-think your tactics.

2 New Scenarios. Two maps for you to fight against the tribe, or for you to use in uploaded challenges with whichever fleet you like.

What The Pack does NOT contain:

Completely new gameplay modes, and major features that change how the game plays, any new AI orders... basically anything that is not listed in the list above. This is basically a data-pack with new ships, not a sequel or gameplay re-write.
