game release date for PC:
Endless Space 2 for PC is a 4X type space strategy. The game was developed by a team of Amplitude Studios - the same people who produced the first part of the series.
The story of the game takes us into the distant future, where we can take part in a galactic conflict between several powerful civilizations fighting for control over a fragment of the universe. This rivalry takes place in a vast galaxy, densely filled with systems, where each planet has unique resources and conditions.
Virtual universe is generated randomly, thus every new game features new adventures and challenges. Both the combat, and development side of the game are based on a turn system. During the game, the player has to explore the universe, seize the control over planets, organize a healthy economy, establish trade and diplomatic relations, and develop new technologies. The military is also a key factor; it is necessary to build large fleets of ships, and then to command them during stellar skirmishes. One of the main features of the game is an advanced ship construction system, allowing us to choose weapons, engine, armor, and on-board systems for each machine.
Endless Space 2 for PC offers a single player mode, in which we're challenged by artificial intelligence, as well as the multiplayer, where players can decide whether they want to introduce factions controlled by the AI or not.
