On this day, Endless technology lights up and strange things appear in the ruins all across Auriga, and even throughout the galaxy as the Archivist, Emlek Tarosh, fulfils its duty.

Rock, Paper, Shotgun - (Adam Smith)

One of the year’s Bestest Best Games is currently discounted by 50% on Steam. The game is Endless Legend, Amplitude’s superb 4X fantasy game, and it’s currently 13.49, but only until 6pm GMT. The discounts extend to all three of the studio’s releases, so you can also grab debut title Endless Space and this year’s brilliantly inventive roguelike door defense thing> Dungeon of the Endless for 4.99 each. There’s also a bundle with all three plus DLC for 30.49. If you need to know more, our reviews of Dungeon and Legend are here to help, and Jim and I wrote about Endless Legend as part of our December festivities.

Remember last week, when I was all like, "Endless Legend is getting a free add-on next week"? Well now it is next week, or "this week" as we've decided to call it. Did Endless Legend get a free add-on? Yup.

Called Visions of the Unseen, it adds a new minor faction, the unseeing Eyeless Ones. They are literally eyeless, hence how they got the name, but possess a sixth sense—"kanjwe"—that lets them "feel all that is visible, and some that is not"." As with other minor factions, they can be pacified and assimilated—allowing you to build their units.

There's other stuff, too. Here's the major additions and changes of the add-on:

  • Added a new minor faction: the Eyeless Ones.
  • Added new 10 side quests.
  • Added Faction-related diplomatic interactions.
  • Added loading tips.
  • Added the Vaulters' outgame view.
  • Added VFX to the unique quest weapons.
  • Added more data to the save files, in order to allow parsing for league/stats database.

You can peruse the full patch notes here.

Endless Space got some love, too. Chronicles of the Lost adds a bunch more events for the Disharmony expansion. Here's the big stuff:

  • Added 24 colonisation events: these events can now be triggered when colonizing a new planet
  • Added 8 exploration events
  • Added the Vaulters introduction cinematic
  • Added the Vaulters Victory and Defeat screen

And again, full patch notes are through this link.

Hi all,

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.

More Heroes

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!

  • Faction: Hissho
  • Classes: Corporate / Adventurer
  • Stats:
    • Labour: 0
    • Wit: 5
    • Melee: 0
    • Offence: 7
    • Defence: 3
  • 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
  • Stats:
    • Labour: 0
    • Wit: 1
    • Melee: 4
    • Offence: 5
    • Defence: 5
  • 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.

  • Faction: Amoeba
  • Classes: Pilot / Adventurer
  • Stats:
    • Labour: 0
    • Wit: 0
    • Melee: 5
    • Offence: 2
    • Defence: 8
  • 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.
