Two years and a half may have passed since its release, but we are excited to announce a seventh free add-on for Endless Space:
As a reminder, Endless Space is the first 4X we released, back in 2012: a space strategy game, that probably made people dream as much as us.
We launched the alpha on Steam back in May 2012, before the Early Access system even existed: early builds and the GAMES2GETHER system allowed us to gather feedback and generate community content, that we would implement to improve the game before its actual release. It was tedious and required a lot of organisation, but it turned out it was really fun and constructive to work with players and even meet up in person at events.
That's why we decided to repeat the experience with our recent releases: Endless Legend and Dungeon of the Endless. We put aside Endless Space for a while to dedicate our time and efforts with our new titles but made a promise to return to ES one more time. Now that the games are out as well, we didn't forget our promise to deliver this long awaited update.
So in case you forgot about Endless Space or are just discovering the Endless games: Chronicles of the Lost will be available next week for Endless Space and Endless Space: Disharmony. It will mostly contain some improvements (Disharmony) and bug fixes (vanilla & Disharmony), based on what we have collected on the forum. In the upcoming days, we will be sharing more information on the content and the release date, so make sure you follow our Facebook/Twitter pages besides the Dev Blog!
Let's start with random events...
Addition of Colonisation Events + More Exploration Events
Here's a preview of some random events that will occur in game: more exploration events, but also something new, the colonisation events! These can now be triggered when colonising a new planet.
Lore: The more you see of the universe, the more you realize you know nothing. Here, for instance, you have found ancient ruins, and ponder their meaning. Outpost? Monastery? Expedition?
Bonus: +60 Research
Lore: Artefacts strewn in the ruins show an ancient civilisation existed. But the size and shape are like nothing you have seen before; and your scientists and archaeologists wonder what it may mean.
- Evil: Scrap
- +2 Industry on planet for 10 turns
- Neutral: Recycle
- +1 Industry on planet (permanent)
- Good: Study them
- -1 Industry on planet for 10 turns
- +3 Science on planet for 20 turns
We would like to thank you for the feedback and hope you will enjoy many more hours playing Endless Space.
