Amplitude Studios, creators of space strategy indie title Endless Space have announced the first expansion for the game. The expansion is titled Disharmony, and according to a press release on Tuesday, is in “the last stages of development”.
The Netherland-based studio also plans to unlock the Sheredyn Faction and the ‘Endless Hero’ from the Emperor Edition for all players, as well as Automaton ship models as a gift to the community. All of this will be available at the release of the expansion. Disharmony follows the release of 4 free add-ons since the game’s original inception in 2012.
The game has been designed using a process created by Amplitude Studios entitled ‘GAMES2GETHER’, in which players can vote on the features included in a video game. This process will still be used after the release of Disharmony.
Other features of the expansion include:
- A brand new Faction called “the Harmony”
- New fighters and bombers
- New Battle Formation and Targeting systems
- A complete rework of the Ship Design Interface
- New invasion mechanics
- A new AI system
Two new community requested features were added as well:
- Four new heroes
- An option to disable Exchange of Technologies
The Disharmony expansion pack will launch on Steam as DLC for $9.99 on June 26th. There will be an English retail version (a key-only box with a 16-page artbook) available in retail stores two days later. You can check out and purchase ‘Endless Space’ on Steam for $29.99.
