New Major Faction Vote - Ship Design

Hello there!

We're one step closer to knowing who our espionage faction is! Last week, you upvoted the names you liked best so we could pick our favorite three. We have to say, there's a lot of heated debate going on still about which ones we like best, so while we're taking our time to pick a selection that does the faction justice, we're moving on to the next step, Ship Design!

Endless Space 2 Stories & Branching Paths

Hey everyone,

We're very happy to finally release the Unfallen comic, which has been co-authored by YOU, our community! As a special treat, and to make them more readily accessible to our players everywhere, we are putting all our Endless Space 2 Stories comics up on Steam. The comics will automatically download to your installation folder, in a subfolder called "Stories". Note that the Unfallen comic will also be made available on the Wiki at a later date.

While we're on the subject of Endless Space 2 Stories, we've put together a special treat to show you how we create comics, and give you a chance to meet some of the Amplitude people who have been behind the scenes!



Given that the Unfallen comic came about via a creative collaboration between the community and the studio, making this one was a little bit different to the normal process ...
Prior to beginning the comic, we'd already decided that we'd approach the Unfallen from an outsider's perspective, and with the community's help we came up with our main character, Karv Jezet--an experienced, cynical Haroshem adventurer with perfect memory.

By the way, we chose to tell the story from a non-Unfallen POV because we thought it would be very difficult to do justice to the culture and psychology of a sentient species of trees in an 8-page comic format! Often, alien races in science-fiction are nothing more than humans in fancy-dress, and we didn't want to reduce such an interesting species like the Unfallen into such a role. By letting the audience see the Unfallen through Karv's eyes, we could still explore some of their most striking aspects, while keeping their inherent "alienness".

Of course, lone adventurers rarely make interesting protagonists, so we quickly came up with the idea of Karv having a partner. And who better than teaming Karv up with everyone's favourite photobomber, Ryhnc Raggiodri? But where we would they start their adventures? How about a seemingly virgin world, where Unfallen tendrils were about to make planetfall in a matter of days ...

Since the community would have a vote on the protagonists' choices every couple of pages, and we wanted them to have a genuine input into the direction of the story, we didn't think too much about what would unfold on the page. We knew the world had certain, unique features, but we had no idea how things would pan out.

Give it a read, and tell us what you think!


We hope you enjoy this story! If you have any questions or comments, you can shoot them in this thread at Arkel, who leads the project. And if you want to learn more about our comics, you can rewatch our comics livestream on Youtube!

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.
