Endless Space - PC

Availability: Available to Order

Released May 2017

In Endless Space you play the role of the leader of one of the many intelligent beings of a galaxy at the beginning of the space age. Very quickly, you discover the remnants of an older civilization. That civilization called themselves the Endless, among their ruins, a matter called Dust with amazing proprieties is found.  It shapes into whatever its user thinks of, it gives a reality to dreams… dreams that lead to the extinction of the Endless.

Since then that matter became the most precious matter of the universe, and therefore the universal currency… but in front of the power of the Dust it is hard, even for the purest beings, not to fall under its charm…

We want the players to live an experience that goes beyond just strategy. You will live your own story of space conquest, with your own randomly generated galaxy full of civilizations, lifeforms, technologies and unknown worlds for you to conquer.

The game’s goal is to offer endless possibilities in how you play the game. Depending on your play style you will prefer to choose a more or less aggressive civilization, more or less social, economic, diplomatic… it will really be up to you to decide how to rule the universe.

Never forget that you are the leader of a population, your population. All your decisions will be analyzed, supported or criticized. Will they fear your new neighbors, be curious, or see them as an opportunity? Your population will expand, assimilate new people and evolve. Your population will be the source of your problems but also the solution to rule the galaxy. Will you listen to them or make them listen to you? Your Vision. Their Future.

And when all hell breaks loose, when war is your last resort, you should be able to enjoy the battles as if you were seeing a movie from your favorite Space Opera. So we have put a special attention to our battles… we want them to be the pinnacle of your strategy: faction affinity, traits, ship design, technologies, fleet composition, battle plays… did you make the right choices.

In the end how you will win, will totally depend on you and you play style as you have 6 different victory conditions. And when you feel ready, gather up to 7 friends or foes, create your alliances, and show them who the best emperor of the galaxy is!

This galaxy is ancient, and its first intelligent life was the civilization we call the Endless. Long before our eyes gazed upon the stars they flew between them, though all that remains of this people is what we call Dust. A substance found scattered around the galaxy that once gave powers to admirals and galactic governors. The galaxy will belong to the civilization that will control Dust and uncover its secrets… but were the Endless alone in the galaxy? What is the true origin of Dust? Are the rumors around a mysterious organization called the Academy real?
