Make War Not Love 5

Hey everyone!

This week is Valentine's day. Again. To combat the existential dread brought on by this commercial holiday, we've decided that once again and in a spirit of camaraderie, it would be much more preferable to make war, not love.

Make War, Not Love is a SEGA event that gathers all strategy studios (that's us, Creative Assembly, and Relic) for a long week-end of events, challenges and giveaways. Starting on the 14th at 9AM GMT, we'll need you to play our games (Endless Space 2, Total War Warhammer 2, Dawn of War 3 or Company of Heroes 2) for as long as possible to unlock rewards for everyone! We'll also be streaming our games several times this week, one of which might even pit us against the community... and you?

On top of that, we have some solid discounts going on on all these games for the duration of the event (until the 18th). Make sure you check out the Make War Not Love website for all info and to register as a participant.

Cancel all your plans, sharpen your guns, we're staying in and we're having fun!

About This Game

Endless Space 2 is a Strategic Space Opera set in a mysterious universe.
Your story unfolds in a galaxy that was first colonized by God-like beings known as the “Endless”, who rose and fell eons ago. All that remains of them are mystical ruins, powerful artifacts, and a strange, near-magical substance known as Dust.

One More Turn

Endless Space 2 takes the classic “one more turn” formula to new heights. You will explore mysterious star systems, discover the secrets of ancient races, build colonies on distant planets, exploit trade routes, develop advanced technologies of unthinkable power; and, of course encounter new life forms to understand, to court or to conquer.

As a leader, you have to manage your populations like never before as they react dynamically to your decisions and to their environment, expressing their will through political parties, dictating the laws that your Senate can pass. Will you be a beloved natural leader or will you manipulate your populations to your benefit?

Epic Space Battles

Watch your fighters fly past huge cruisers while lasers rip their hulls apart in epic real-time space battles. Detailed after action reports will help you adapt your strategy for the next confrontations.

Design your ships, assemble your fleets and carefully adapt your battle plans to overcome your enemies. Once you think you’ve done it all, take it online against seven other players.

Strategic Space Opera

Immerse yourself in the Endless Universe. The galaxy belongs to the civilization that controls Dust and uncovers its secrets… but were the Endless alone in the galaxy? What is the true origin of Dust?

Lead one of eight civilizations, each with a unique playstyle affinity and story quest, and build great stellar empires capable of imposing your vision on the Galaxy!

Find out more about the Academy and its powerful cast of Heroes, that you can recruit and train to become fleet admirals, system governors or influential senators.

Amplified Reality

Press ‘Space’ anytime to activate the Amplified Reality view and reveal in-depth contextual information about your systems, trade routes, diplomatic stances and even your ship stats during battle!
