Iceberg Interactive and developer Amplitude Studios announced today the first free add-on for their ‘4X’ strategy hit Endless Space, “Rise of the Automatons,” is now available on Steam.
“We have to thank our community for its help in defining the add-on — GAMES2GETHER’s votes were used to determine half the improvements,” said Amplitude CEO Mathieu Girard. “We really appreciate our players’ devotion and ideas; they’ve given us ammo for many more updates and upgrades beyond this one. They’re numerous, argumentative, and occasionally challenging, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.”
Rise of the Automations Features:
- ● Addition of the new Automatons custom faction (thanks to the community hero ‘Panzer‘)
- ● GUI changes such as a new Trade Route panel and Empire Management screen
- ● Upgraded and updated diplomacy and alliance options
- ● Improved hero management
- ● Improved AI
- ● Fixes, amendments and changes
The full list of changes for the add-on can be found on the Amplitude forums here. Players should finish their current game today as the add-on is incompatible with old saves due to the many changes.
This galaxy is ancient, and its first intelligent life was the civilization we call the Endless. Long before our eyes gazed upon the stars they flew between them, though all that remains of this people is what we call Dust.
A substance found scattered or in forgotten temples, it once gave powers to admirals and galactic governors. The galaxy will belong to the faction that can take control of the Dust and uncover its secrets.
