New content for the Endless Space 2 science fiction turn-based strategy game will be arriving next week in the form of Endless Space 2 Awakening. The new content will require the Endless Space 2 base game to enjoy and will be available to download via Steam on September 12, 2019. Endless Space 2 Awakening introduces the Nakalim playable major faction as well as the Academy Empire.
“You will now be able to interact and negotiate directly with Isyander. As his grand plan begins to unfold and rumors of the Lost begin to circulate, the Academy is set to take a more active role in the future of the galaxy.”
“A once-vast galactic empire that fell into decline when their gods, the Lost, were slain, this ancient race of devout explorers dreams of the day when those same gods return. The fact that they have been reawakened means half of their prophecy has come true. And the rest… ?
They have a large Technology head start, but are very poor at Science and must rely on discovering lost Relics to learn new technologies. Their relationship with the Academy allows them to gain control over other systems through the Influence of their Temples, then convert them to work for the Academy (in exchange for a handsome reward, of course).”
Four very powerful Academy Roles assigned by Isyander to those who contributed the most to their expansion:
– “The Grand Admiral” is given temporary command of one of the Academy’s two attack Master Fleets, along with the flagship “The Colorless Fist”.
– “The Master of Dust” has the keys to the coffers of the Academy (specifically to the diplomatic reserves) to use as they see fit, plus the ship “The Sum of All Pains”.
– “The Vault Keeper” allows you to pick a political party not currently in your Senate and temporarily make all the party’s laws available to you. The ship “Instrument of the Will” also becomes yours.
– “The Librarian” gets access to privileged information, for a price. The questions vary from economic, military, diplomatic, etc. to secrets of the history of the galaxy, and they also receive the ship “Warden of Knowledge”.
