[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

An ancient threat has awakened in the indie game Awesomenauts' universe! The powerful Starstorm station has been activated! The most spectacular doomsday device ever to have been in production, it was supposed to be the weapon that would bring victory to the robot hordes. Fortunately, the robots were defeated and the battle station was never activated, until now.

In present times, the enduring war between the droid armies of the Ones and Zeros has been shaken up by this news, and both are giving everything they have to try and gain control of the Starstorm's massive destructive power.

With the Starstorm, three new heroes emerge to join the ranks of the Awesomenauts: Ted McPain, a classic hero from ancient times; Sentry X-58, the most cunning undercover robot and Skree, the powerful but superstitious techno shaman. These heroes form the core of the new Awesomenauts Expansion called Awesomenauts: Starstorm!

Together with the new characters, the oft-requested Spectator mode will be built. It will allow players to join their friends' game and see what they're up to! Additionally, global chatrooms, a twin stick controlscheme and new music will be added to the game. To get this giant battle station off the ground though, Ronimo asks for help through an epic Kickstarter: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ronimo/awesomenauts-starstorm

And the stretch goals make the expansion even more ambitious! Adding a full-on replay system, custom games, modding tools with Steam integration and of course the actual Starstorm station as a playable level!

Finally, the expansion and much of its features will also be made available in the recently announced PlayStation 4 version!
