About Galaxy on Fire 2 HD and the Valkyrie and Supernova add-ons:

In Galaxy on Fire 2™ HD the player explores a vast, living galaxy with more than 20 different star systems, 100 individual space stations and 30 fully customizable space ships, while following a rich and engrossing story line with full English voice acting. The title’s epic plot centres on the protagonist Keith T. Maxwell’s bold and daring adventures in a war-torn galaxy governed by four different factions, namely the Terrans, the Vossk, the Nivelians and the Midorians.

Due to a malfunction of his hyper drive, Keith T. Maxwell is catapulted through space and time. 35 years later, he awakens at the far end of the galaxy, where he soon realizes that a lot has changed during his unintentional absence. An aggressive and particularly devious alien menace known as Voids threatens the fragile peace between the different alien races by launching devastating raids on freighters and convoys of all factions. And Keith T. Maxwell is the only one who can stand up to this seemingly invincible enemy and save the universe from its impending descent into chaos.

The add-ons Valkyrie™ and Supernova™ add two new campaigns and tons of new content, such as space ships, weapons, power-ups, star systems and gameplay features, to the main game. Valkyrie™ kicks in right where Galaxy on Fire 2™ HD left off and Supernova™ takes place directly after the events of its antecessor. While Valkyrie™ puts Keith T. Maxwell in the centre of an epic conspiracy including high-profile kidnappings and interstellar gun running, Supernova™ sets the hot-headed protagonist of the GOF games up against the all-consuming forces of nature and a devious squadron of stealth fighters. All in all, the add-ons expand the 20-hour playtime of Galaxy on Fire 2™ HD by another 10 to 15 hours.
