Fishlabs’ highly anticipated add-on to Galaxy On Fire 2 [$9.99 / Lite] recently hit the App Store, and is likely sitting in your pending updates listing if you already own the game. (Assuming of course you haven’t already updated.) This update actually comes in two parts, a free component and the actual Valkyrieadd-on which is unlocked via a $4.99 in-app purchase.
In this update, everyone who owns Galaxy On Fire 2 will be granted access to three ships from the original Galaxy On Fire: The Phantom, Vol Noor, and Wraith. Also, you’ll be able to get a personal space station to store multiple ships as well as all your loot, cargo, and other items that you want out of your ships’ cargo holds.
The Valkyrie add-on picks up on Keith T. Maxwell’s adventures, and is largely based around fan feedback. Aside from a new array of planets, ships, weaponry, and other equipment, there’s also an entirely new extensively voiced over campaign. The repair robots and automated turrets sound particularly useful, and a new black market trading system will allow players to get even more involved in the galaxy’s virtual economy.
For more information on our game, you can check out our review, the insanely active forum thread, or Fishlabs’ own incredibly interesting developer diary for the whole add-on project. I’ve had a great time with Galaxy On Fire 2, and look forward to delving deeper into this new add-on. The cost of the game and this new add-on might seem expensive in App Store terms, but the amount of content in the original game and now this new add-on is nothing short of ridiculous. I’m not exaggerating at all by saying if Galaxy On Fire 2 sucks you in, it could keep you busy for months.
