Amplitude Studios have revealed the upcoming DLC for sci-fi strategy Endless Space 2 and fantasy strategy Endless Legend. You won’t have to wait long to dive right in, too! Both DLC are coming out on January 24. You can pre-purchase the New Endless Expansions Bundle on Steam.
Endless Space 2 – Penumbra
The DLC introduces the long-awaited hacking feature, invisibility and the community-created faction: the Umbral Choir, who have been roaming the universe since the dawn of time, silent observers of the woes of the world. At last, they heard the death cry of the Endless Galaxy and decided to rush to the aid of those who suffered.
- The Umbral Choir only own a single hidden system throughout the entire game. They can however expand and fuel their economy by building sanctuaries on neutral or enemy system anonymously. This faction heavily relies on its ability to stay undetected and on its formidable use of the hacking feature.
- Hacking – In the new scan view, players can now initiate hacking operation from a system they own to a target system. While the hack progresses, the player and their target will be able to set up offensive and defensive programs to influence its progression. If the hack succeeds, the attacker will be able to choose among several potentially crippling outcomes..
Invisibility – Penumbra also comes with new invisibility modules allowing your fleets to infiltrate enemy lines without being detected. However, there are multiple levels of invisibility and these can always be countered by detection modules.
You can pre-purchase Endless Space 2 – Penumbra through Steam. The DLC requires the base game in order to play. Penumbra launches on January 24th.
Endless Legend – Symbiosis
The DLC adds a brand new faction, The Mykara, as well as new colossal beasts known as Urkans.
- The Mykara originate from a unique stem city and overgrow points of interest to fuel their economy. While they cannot settle new land, they can turn conquered enemy cities into ghost towns from which they get bonus resources. After a few turns, their symbiosis with the conquered town allow them to gain bonus traits…
- Urkans are massive beasts that appear randomly around the map taking control of neutral land. To tame the creature, empires will have to bribe or defeat them in battle alongside their minions. Taming an Urkan unlocks a new set of unique abilities that is suited for both defensive and aggressive playstyles.
