Since its first demo was released in the Fall of 2012, The Pit has become an indie hit with its blend of Roguelike action and sci-fi depth! Players were challenged to survive 30 floors of The Pit using one of three characters – the Marine, the Engineer, and the Scout – then in The Pit: MindGames players were given two new characters – the Psion and the alien Tarka Ranger – and ten more floors to survive through, as well as a wealth of new items, recipes, weapons, and nasty creatures to fight!
To celebrate the success of the series, we’re releasing this Gold edition, which not only gives you the game, the expansion, and all the free content we added along the way, but we’re adding three new playable characters – The Hiver Warrior, the Liir Seeker, and the Morrigi Striker! Now you can test yourself against The Pit using all the major races from the Sword of the Stars universe!
Three new Character classes, each from a different previously unplayable alien race.
Over 65 new items
Over 35 new monsters
Over 50 new messages which means lots of all new hidden recipes
30 new weapons, including new alien weapons
2 new Biome levels - Snow and Desert
2 new play modes; Quick, which reduces the number of rooms per floor and Fast, which skips ever second floor!
Plus 1 hidden character, which you can unlock to help you out when things get tough!

Sword of the Stars: The Pit is one of the most interesting roguelikes of the last few years. Of course only if you consider it a roguelike (which it is not in the very strict sense of this term). To me it's more of a "roguelite", because it doesn't adhere to all ther principles of roguelikes, but it's enjoyable (and difficult) nonetheless. The Gold Edition DLC adds a lot of replayability to the game with three new classes, lots of new items, weapons, monsters, and levels. Remembering how replayable the base game is, you can get almost endless hours of fun with the addition of this pack.
