Lost Symphony, Untold Tales, & patch 1.2.18!

Hey everyone,

We are very happy to be releasing two new content packs, Untold Tales, & Lost Symphony. Aimed at increasing immersion, and modeled after Endless Legend's The Lost Tales & Echoes of Auriga, these two new pieces are aimed at players who love Endless Space 2's rich universe, and want to fill their eyes and ears with MORE of it. Both content packs are priced at $2.99 / 2.99€ / £2.49, with a 10% discount until March 19th! At the same time, Endless Space 2 is a whopping 50% off for the same duration, so if you've been looking for an occasion to rope your friends in, now's a great time!

Here is a breakdown of both content packs:

Untold Tales

The Endless galaxy might be governed by a few powerful forces, but it is still inhabited by masses of minority species, with their own history, heroes and purpose. In Endless Space 2: Untold Tales, uncover hidden secrets, intriguing stories and endearing characters scattered across your Empire with 21 exclusive Quests, 4 new Minor Factions and 4 new Heroes.
  • 21 new Minor Faction Quests
  • 4 new Minor factions:
    • Galvrans : Hailing from a strange planet with extreme day/night cycles, the Galvrans are courteous but often withdrawn.
    • Kal’Tik’Mas : The Kal'Tik'Mas are a hardy race of scavengers whose gruff exterior hides a grievous past.
    • Sowers : The Sowers are intelligent terraforming machines who follow an ancient order of the Virtual Endless.
    • Sefaloros : Aquatic geniuses at industry and construction, the Sefaloros often use engineered life forms to aid their work.
  • 4 new Heroes:
    • G0d3I Builder.v87 (Sower)
    • En Pas Leba (Kal’Tik’Ma)
    • Ooblart Essacius (Sefaloros)
    • Chancellor Alazne Matul (Galvran)

Lost Symphony
  • 7 new tracks:
    • Boltzmann Brains
    • Light Curve
    • Forgotten Moon
    • Flat Geometry
    • Digital Minds
    • Unstable Molecule
    • Lost Cities
  • 1 new Minor Faction: Harmony
    The Harmony work diligently to improve resource production, as exposure to resources acts as a form of nourishment.

Patch 1.2.18

One of our main goals with this patch was to rebalance weapon & support modules following your feedback. Energy weapons should now be on par with their projectile counterparts, and Blast Effect Batteries will no longer be able to one-shot bigger ships.  We also gave some much needed buffs to some supports modules that were seeing little use while imposing some limitations to those that were too prominent in combat or could stack too high.

The other main aspect was to rebalance governments, also following player feedback. Republic was king and the idea was to bring the other governments to its level, by increasing their strengths and make them able to fit different playstyles. Along with the purely numerical changes on political event values (building many military ships will no longer force you to become militarist!), we feel this brings new stakes to the political game of Endless Space 2!


  • Material Expertise: Strategic resources costs multiplier in Modernization upgrades increased from 25% to 50%
  • Probe vision range bonus from Vaulters-specific tech decreased from +40% to +25%

  • Hero skill Geniocrat I: Science bonus reduced from +20% to +15%
  • Vaulter populations bonus damage to attacker in ground battle increased from +20 to +25
  • Increased cooldown before next free colonization by 2 turns
Space Battle:
  • Rebalanced Laser & beam DPS values
  • Blast Effect battery will now do only 50% damage against medium and large ships
  • Energy and Projectile enhancer strategic cost brought from 2 to 3
  • Lenser module will grant repair per phase bonus instead of HP bonus
  • Jammer module will now grant an evasion boost in addition to its usual bonuses
  • Antipersonnel Defense drone now grant 150 manpower in addition to its usual bonuses
  • Hardened Shield Generators now grant 100 energy defense in addition to its usual bonuses
  • Turret Recovery Fields now grant +10% critical damage in addition to its usual bonuses
  • Globally reduced evasion boost on Engine modules
  • Antimatter Laser and Beam will now have a superior hull penetration rate instead of a damage boost against shields
  • Beams have been boosted back to 75% of their former value
  • Energy & Projectile Enhancer Damage boost can now only be equipped once per ship

  • It is now possible to add governments in mods and they will appear in the interface of the game
  • Reworked political event effects:

    •  Increased power for some religious and ecologists events
    •  Building a Wonder now always increases the religious ideology
  • Governments revamp:
    • Federation now gives +1 System before over-colonization per Hero on Empire
    • Federation now has -20% Luxury cost on System Development Upgrades
    • Democracy now has -5% Influence upkeep cost reduction per active law from different political parties

    • Dictatorship now has two additional law slots unlocked on stage 3 and 5 of Empire Development respectively
  • Increased growth upkeep overall for population
  • Early game food star system improvements have had their gains reduced

  • Fixed an issue where an unknown Battle Card with placeholder text was displayed in the Battle Tactics screen
  • Added Show Location Buttons to Argosy-related notifications
  • Fixed critical error when a Vodyani Ark has less than 60% HP, and tries and fails to retreat, resulting in its destruction and causing the game to remain stuck
  • Fixed an issue where ships could appear rotated after using the Skip to Action button
  • Quest planets no longer remain highlighted after the Pacifist path of the "Guardians and the galaxy" quest has failed
  • Fixed some traits filed under the wrong category which caused their description not to appear
  • Vaulters Fleet Names are now implemented
  • Fixed the Meta-Entactogen Luxury not being impacted by cost reductions

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.
