Tom Towers writes: "It’s three years (one and a half on PC) since Swords & Soldiers was released, so it’s perhaps a little strange that we’re only now seeing DLC for it. Perhaps it’s to take advantage of Awesomenauts’ recent release so that nothing extra need be spent on extra marketing or perhaps it’s simply endemic of the troubled development and release of the original game. Of course it all worked out for Swords & Soldiers in the end with the likes of IGN calling it one of best console real-time strategy games ever. A backhanded compliment to be sure, but one well deserved (the complimentary part, that is) because Swords & Soldiers was excellent. It was so well received on consoles because it was actually playable on consoles, but it was well received on PC too because it was actually good."
