Be warned heathen un-believers. The Galaxy is not your plaything. This galaxy was created in a weekend by the one true god, and he has no room in it for the likes of heathen aliens such as you. If your species is not listed in the holy book of the one true god, then it's pretty clear you are a mistake, and the order is here to rectify mistakes. For is it not written (depending on translations) that the total destruction of all alien species with devastating radioactive cannons and nuclear space-missiles is the will of the one true god? So say us. So say The ORDER.

The Order is the latest species in the universe of Gratuitous Space Battles. The order are here to do gods work, and it's done primarily through nuclear missiles, limpet mines and radiation guns. Apparently leafleting and hymns just didn't get the job done. In any case, the order have you in their sights. Prepare to be crushed alien swine.

What The Order Expansion Pack Contains:

10 New ships. 4 Cruisers 3 Frigates and 3 fighters, all in a new graphical style by the same artist who did the original GSB artwork. The order ships use tractor beams to keep the different components together. Girders are so 2450's.

4 New weapon types. The radiation gun does impact damage plus ongoing internal radiation damage as its effects devastate your ship from the inside. Nuclear missiles provide the same entertainment in missile form. Firefly rockets give normal cruiser rockets a boost of speed, and lastly, cunning anti-fighter limpet mines latch on to incoming fighters and drag them down to speeds where everyone can take pot shots at them.

New ship bonuses. The order ships have pretty poor engines, but those big green throbbing powerplants kick out more juice on order ships. What could you design given more power and less speed? The order is your opportunity to find out.

2 New Scenarios. Two maps for you to fight against the order, One is a normal map, but with the fun and games of a nice aesthetically pleasing 3D style asteroid field (does not affect gameplay but looks cool), and the other is a 'survival' mode match where you play last ship standing and try to score higher than other players in the global high score table.

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.

How does this work with challenges and stuff?

If you install the expansion pack, then in future when you post challenges the game will have a little ticked checkbox which tags your challenge as having content from the order. That means only people with the expansion pack can play that challenge. If you aren't using any order ships in your fleet, you can un-tick that box and the challenge will work just as before. You will be able to download and play existing challenges with your order fleet no problem.

I bought the game from X, do I need to get the expansion pack from that site too?

No. It won't make any difference.

You are an evil media conglomerate and a greedy capitalist for releasing an expansion pack etc.

Unfortunately my landlord and the people who sell me food all demand I pay them in something other than GSB expansion packs (the fools!) so I have to exchange the packs for money. Plus I have to pay the artist and feed these cats.

Sounds awesome. I must have this immediately. let me buy it now!

I'm glad you feel this way. Click the big button below (the expansion pack is $5.99)
