StarDrive 2, the 4X that pits Space Bears against Cthulhu worshipping Squids, has just had a new piece of DLC released: Sector Zero. It enables players to embark on their voyage of empire building using turn based mechanics instead of real time simultaneous simulation.

Along with tb strategy, Sector Zero adds a number of other features. The addition of new victory conditions along with turn based gameplay, are two of the most requested features by fans since the game was released. The ground combat improvements should also please many as this was a notorious weak area of the game.
