eXpand Your Empire in Endless Space 2
Amplitude Studios released today the second video in their “4X” series of trailers showcasing the meaning of each “X” (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, and eXterminate) in their upcoming grand-scale sci-fi strategy game Endless Space® 2. This new trailer dives into the meaning of “eXpand” in the Endless Universe, showing how players go from small colonies to galactic empires through thoughtful (and sometimes violent) expansion. Discover habitable worlds, send colony ships out to take over those worlds, then generate resources to continually grow and enhance your empire. Send warships out to defend those worlds, or assault the planets held by your opponents and make them yours.
Endless Space®2 is a turn-based, sci-fi grand strategy game that expands through the Endless universe, putting players in the fascinating role of leader guiding a civilization in making its first steps into the cold depths of interstellar space. Play through eight factions alone or against your friends.
The game is currently available on Early Access on Steam, for $29.99 (standard edition) and $37.49 (digital deluxe edition).
Endless Space 2 will put you in the fascinating role of a leader guiding a civilization in making its first steps into the cold depths of interstellar space.
You will explore mysterious star systems, discover the secrets of ancient races, develop advanced technologies of unthinkable power, and, of course, encounter new life forms to understand, to court or to conquer.
Your story unfolds in a galaxy that was first colonized by a people known as the Endless, who rose and fell eons ago. All that remains of them are mystical ruins, powerful artifacts, and a mysterious, near-magical substance known as Dust.
