The Endless Day has returned! :) We're celebrating today our studio's 5th anniversary with in-game events, tons of giveaways on Twitter, a special live stream and an office party!
Play Endless Legend, Dungeon of the Endless and Endless Space before Monday, January 25 to discover and permanently unlock rare Steam achievements or play with Tarosh the Archivist in each game. For more information, check out this FAQ:
ENDLESS DAY SPECIAL CONTENT - SPOILER ALERT
How to unlock the Emlek Tarosh hero: you need to start a new game of Endless Space (make sure you have disabled your mods if you are playing with any), before January 25th (end of the event). If you manage to do so, the hero will be unlocked for your future games once the event is over.
To unlock the “Endless Day” achievement: win a game in “Endless” difficulty, started between January 21st and January 25th, but completed at any time.
DUNGEON OF THE ENDLESS
How to unlock the archivist, Esseb Tarosh: you need to start a new game of Dungeon of the Endless. The hero will be available in your pool right away, for the duration of the event. Like any other heroes in DotE, you need to survive at least three floors with the hero or finish the game with it. If you manage to do so, once the event ends, you will be able to keep the Esseb Tarosh in your pool of heroes.
How to unlock the “Endless Day” achievement: you need to start a new game in any difficulty, hire the archivist hero and keep it alive, and complete the game. Make sure you start and complete a game between January 21st and January 25th in order to get the achievement.
How to unlock the Eslek Tarosh hero and the “Endless Day” achievement: you need to start a new game of Endless Legend (make sure you have disabled your mods if you are playing with any), before January 25th (end of the event!). Once you have built your first city, a new quest will appear: “Day of the Awakening”. Complete it and you will unlock the new hero and the Steam achievement.
Twitter giveaways will be taking place all day long on Twitter. Follow us on Twitter (@Amplitude) for a chance to win Steam keys for all our games and a great Endless goodies package! This event starts at 10am CET, and we plan to continue giving keys away throughout the whole day! So stay tuned, and good luck!
As a thank you for being part of our community, we will be unlocking the Mezari faction (Vaulters faction skin) for everyone in Endless Legend!
Don't miss our Live Stream, starting at 4pm CET with Mathieu & Romain, our co-founders! They'll discuss the studio's recent achievements, give updates on current projects, and drop hints about what comes next. Follow us on Twitch and be sure to tune in!
A Beer2Gether event will be taking place over at our studio in Paris. There's no more room for this one, sorry, be sure to be among the first to register next week to be able to visit us!
The Endless Day events conclude on January 25th at 12am CET. Achievement hunters, make sure to get them before then!
It's been crazy here these past few days, with the iPad announcement for Dungeon of the Endless, the Endless Legend: Shadows expansion and Gamescom approaching. The Endless mysteries have almost all been solved now and you have unlocked the ENDLESS SPACE 2 website and teaser.
Thank you so much for your hard work and enthusiasm: it was a real pleasure to follow your progress on this treasure hunt through this thread and on our social networks. Don't forget to subscribe to our newsletter and invite your friends for exclusive in-game goodies! :)
Fixed the Don't Even Think About It achievement: "create a custom faction with -195 points or less, and win a game with it on Endless difficulty" (the achievement would trigger with a custom faction with -100 points points or less)
Sorry, I had to. :) We are happy to announce that Endless Space is now available in Spanish, in this [1.1.57] version! We know that the Spanish-speaking community will be quite excited, and would like to thank the Clan DLAN for their translation:

CHANGING THE GAME LANGUAGE
To switch your game to Spanish, go in your Steam library, right click on Endless Space, then "Properties", and go in the "Language" tab to select Spanish.
Visions of the Unseen (EL) and Chronicles of the Lost (ES) add-ons will be available tomorrow on Steam (automatic update). We'll then post the detailed release notes for each game! Today, we're focusing on the Vaulters who got some nice additions in both games.
The Vaulters in Endless Space
The Vaulters now have their own introduction video in Endless Space. Just a screenshot for now: you'll be able to see it in game tomorrow!
The Vaulters in Endless Legend
We added a really cool Vaulters background scene in the main menu:
Come back tomorrow for the detailed release notes.
Indeed, we're coming back to Endless Space one more time, with the upcoming "Chronicles of the Lost" add-on for Endless Space and Endless Space: Disharmony. We previously talked about the new random events that would be introduced to Endless Space, but today, find out more about some community requests we received and that made it into the game.
Heroes sharing portraits was something players wanted us to improve. For production reasons, we simply couldn't do in the past as we lacked the time and resources. We hope you'll appreciate the new art: that's 20 new administrator, corporate commander, pilot, and adventurer heroes!
Classes: Corporate / Adventurer
Name & Description: Stormbrow - There is a war cry among the Hissho that would roughly translate as, "Come at me!". Stormbrow, a fearsome fighter, was known for her use of this challenge and her near-impervious defences -- as an individual and as a leader of troops. This made her part of an augmentation selection. Though she was one of the 8% that survived, she was not of the remaining 88% that was still good at taking orders...
Faction: the United Empire
Classes: Corporate / Pilot
Name & Description: Yeranef - Yeranef's career followed an average arc of success, as she was a capable but unremarkable corporate lieutenant. However, an unprotected exposure to over-excited Dust in a military research facility triggered changes that launched her up the corporate pyramid--until boredom drove her to seek challenges elsewhere.
Classes: Pilot / Adventurer
Name & Description: Glies.Warr1B4 - "Warrior Amoeba" is, without surprise, viewed as an impossible oxymoron. Yet Glies.Warr1B4, driven almost to madness as he watched his fleet get destroyed by the guns of an ancient Endless defence satellites, vowed to never again avoid -- or lose -- a battle.
The AI & Custom Factions
This is something that was actually already possible, if you knew how to deal with xml files. But we decided to make it much easier: the AI can now play the custom factions that you have created.
Create your own custom faction.
Select AI factions in the drop list.
Have a nice weekend, we'll have plenty of details for both Endless Legend and Endless Space add-ons next week.
