Amplitude Studios has released a major (and free) update for its impressive 4X strategy title Endless Space, complete with brand new faction (designed by a member of the game’s community), moddable ship textures and some upgraded alliance/diplomacy options. Be aware that it’s not compatible with existing saved games, so you may wish to dig around in Steam’s options to stop the install until you’re ready for a new game.
You can find the full (and quite extensive) list of changes and improvements here. If you’re interested in what I thought of the game back in July, my review is here.
“We have to thank our community for their help in defining the add-on … We really appreciate our players’ devotion and ideas; they’ve given us ammo for many more updates and upgrades beyond this one,” says Amplitude CEO Mathieu Girard.
Here’s what some of the changes look like in screenshot form.
