Endless Space 2 is the sequel to the two-time Unity-award winning Endless Space. The game itself is a turn-based, 4X space-strategy that will put you in the fascinating role of a leader guiding a civilization in making its first steps into the cold depths of interstellar space. It’s your vision, and their future.
Endless Space 2 will have you explore mysterious star systems, discover the secrets of ancient races, develop advanced technologies of unthinkable power, and encounter new life forms to understand, to court or to conquer. Again, the choice is yours, it’s your universe to do with as you will, if you can get past who else is out there.
Which brings us to the point of today’s piece. A prologue video showing off one of the races in the game, The Horatio. We see this video from the viewpoint of their leader, and learn about the struggles he had to face in his rise to power, and how through his perspective and determination, he became the leader of his people.
Now, it appears that the Horatio are going to be one that may be a problem if not handled correctly, but then again, aren’t all races?
Your universe was one that was colonized by a race called the Endless, and though they’re gone, there are clues and mysteries scattered about the planets, including the “near-magical” substance known as dust, which was said to have been left behind by the Endless. What will you find as you explore? That’s up to you.
Endless Space 2 is on Steam currently in Early Access.
