INDIE NEWS – Publisher Iceberg Interactive and developer Ashdar Games announce that Legacies, the first expansion for turn-based 4X strategy game Stars in Shadow, is available for purchase today through Steam and all major digital retailers at an SRP of $4.99. To celebrate the launch of Legacies, Stars in Shadow is currently on a weeklong 40% discount on Steam. The Legacies release on GOG will take place tomorrow.
Legacies adds one new minor faction and one new playable faction, the cyborg Tinkers who excel in production.
