  • First info on 2nd add-on

    Hello everyone,

    We want to give you a little heads up on what we’re working on, that will be included in the second add-on for Endless Space. This second add-on will provide a lot of additions that will give more “ambience” and “life” to the galaxy and every new game you will play.

    First of all, the G2G votes that were finalized prior to the Achievement votes will be included in this add-on. This includes:
    • Random Interactive Events: Multiple choice interactive random events
    • Ambience Galaxy Map +: Give more life to the galaxy with the addition of comets, black holes, anomalies, etc…
    • Exploration Rewards: There will be rewards on some systems that can only be earned by the 1st players to reach them
    • Wonders: Adds wonders rewarding players’ exploration with strong and temporary boosts

    We’re also working on other features that will reinforce the immersion as well as AI, these will be revealed little by little in the upcoming weeks.

    Stay tuned!

      I know many people are excited about the Ambience, but the one that has me most excited is the Interaction events. They could really be game-changers. =)

      Wow I just got this game and I love it! My favorite race to play with so far is the Amoeba but I am still learning! I do wish however that when a deal was broken it would inform you someway like on other games where the leader pops up and says this deal will no longer work for us etc, also better diplo immersion to make it feel like you are actually interacting with them. Keep up the good work guys it really is a beautiful and awesome game!

      Somehow when I saw wonders as an option I pictured something more like Civilization 4's unique wonder buildings that providing nation wide bonuses, like say the Great Wall, rather than civ 5's unique tile wonders providing bonuses.
      Personally I feel that wonder buildings are something that really missing and is part of most other games of this type.
      All that said, great addon, keep it up!

      Looking forward to it, I must be honest and say that my interest is still there, but the current vanilla feel has kept me from playing this as much as other 4x games I have owned.
