On PAX South, the developers behind Grey Goo, announced a new story expansion for the game and revealed that it’s also getting a Definitive Edition.
The expansion is called “Descent of the Shroud.” It adds a new, “fully designed” faction, which can be played in both multiplayer and offline against AI enemies. In terms of story, a new single-player Descent of the Shroud mission takes place after the events of the main game and will revolve around the war against the Shroud.
Here’s more on Descent of the Shroud, from publisher Grey Box:
“Descent of the Shroud also brings new units to the game’s three original races. Betas can now deploy the Squall, a ranged ground unit with a knockback effect,” it said. “The Goo Siphon drains health from enemies and transfers it to allies. And the Humans’ Valiant AI bot can deploy a shield that redirects damage to friendly allies toward itself.”
On top of the new expansion, Grey Box announced that Grey Goo will essentially relaunch February 1 as the Grey Goo Definitive Edition. It comes with the base game, the first expansion (Emergence), as well as Descent of the Shroud and the soundtrack. You can buy it tomorrow on Steam for $30. Currently, the base game alone sells for $50, while the Emergence add-on and soundtrack go for $8 each.
