Amplitude Studios released Virtual Awakening, their fourth free add-on for Endless Space. The add-on is already available on Steam since yesterday, and you just need to fire the game and Steam will auto-update.
The first add-on, Rise of the Automatons, brought a new custom faction, a new trade route UI panel, updated AI and diplomacy. The second add-on, Echos of the Endless, injected some “ambience” and “life” content. The third add-on, Lights of Polaris, brought a new wonder, hero, Steam achievements and “battle actions in auto”.
Only three free add-ons were originally planned, but later on Amplitude announced a fourth which would contain all the rewards unlocked during a Steam free weekend.
Virtual Awakening, the fourth add-on, adds the following:
1 new Technology
- Gas Giant Transformation
2 new Buildings
- Deep Space Facility
- High Energy Array
3 new Planet Anomalies
- Hostile Dust
- Endless Trouble
- Humeris Insidentes
4 new Random Events
- Mad Scientist
- New Religion
- Sleeping War Machines
- Endless Facility
4 new Heroes
- Virtual Endless
6 new Exploration Rewards
- Pool of heroes is refreshed
- Unveil surrounding systems
- 4 boost (industry or approval)
See the full release note here.
Well, this seems to be it concerning free add-ons for Endless Space, at least for the time being because Amplitude seems to be focusing their full attention on the Endless Space expansion now. We covered Amplitude’s expansion announcement back in August of last year. More on that when we have details on content and expected release date, but, the main focus of the expansion seems to be a major overhaul of the combat system.

In addition to the new free add-on release, and to commemorate 300,000 copies sold, Endless Space will be on sale until March 18th on Steam.
