The new content provides players with two new ships (including the much-awaited Jupiter MK II Battlestar), two new squadrons and a new story campaign told from the CIC deck of the Galactica itself.
New story campaign
The brand new story campaign kicks off Season Two of Battlestar Galactica Deadlock. Players will face Cylon threats old and new, and battle side-by-side with the CIC crew of the Galactica. They can play through ten fully-voiced story missions, and thirteen Resource Missions that can be scouted for intel before committing your forces. The campaign features four new tracks from composer Ash Gibson Greig, two story cinematics, and voices of both new and familiar voices.
New war room
The Ministry of Defense relies on Galactica to lead the counter-offensive against the Cylons. Players can organize and command BSG-75 from a meticulous reconstruction of the famous Galactica CIC. The Season Two strategy layer has been revamped to get fans straight into the fights that matter, while the new Cylon Threat mechanic measures overall impact on the First Cylon War.
The Jupiter-class Battlestar players know and love has been overhauled. The Jupiter Mk II boasts enough firepower and armor to become the most impressive vessel yet fielded in the war, with that authentic familiar look fans have been waiting for.
The Cylons have not been idle during the ceasefire either. When taking the field, Cylon Command have begun to exploit the raw firepower of the rare Cratus-class basestar, an impressive behemoth of a ship that serves as a mobile operational base.
The Colonials have retrofitted an ancient fighter design with a mysterious origin. Dubbed the Taipan, these hardy fighters are heavy hitting anti-capital strike vehicles. Meanwhile, the Cylons have developed the Vespid, a swarm of dedicated bombers that quickly close the distance and release high yield explosives on their targets.
