Amplitude Studios celebrated last month its 2 year anniversary and we are very proud to still be here thanks to you. A year ago we were preparing the release of Endless Space’s Alpha version on Steam just before suddenly welcoming 15k members in the first month on our forums. After thousands of feedbacks, ideas, discussions, a couple of bugs, competitions, beers and add-ons, we’re super happy to announce that our latest add-on called “Virtual Awakening” will be released March 11th. Next Monday!
Moreover, we opened a discussion on the expansion, back in August (a few months after the release). Our goal was to make sure we wouldn't go in the wrong direction and you were here to guide us. We started early to make sure we wouldn't miss anything. As you might already know, this expansion pack will focus on battles, and we know there are a lot of things we can improve and add, which we were not able to do before now.
As Stéphanie announced yesterday, we promised exciting news and here it is: our latest GAMES2GETHER vote will give you the opportunity to choose the new faction that will feature in Endless Space’s expansion pack!
We have 3 concepts that we regrouped in 3 archetypes:
- The Dust Collective, a merchant faction that cannot declare war but has access to many devious tools.
- The Virus, a faction that infects whoever it has contact with.
- The Harmony, a mysterious mineral life form that can “harmonize” the universe…
Please feel free to vote for your favorite one so we can develop them further.
Starting next week we’ll be discussing more of the pack content with you, although we started a while back with the VIPs with Meedoc in the front-line!
In the meantime we still have a lot on our plate: Virtual Awakening planned for next Monday, the new votes and discussions on the expansion pack, the Automaton ship design competitions that just ended…
Glad you are still riding along with us.
