The Endless Day – a tradition going back as far as the 8 years of Amplitude Studios itself. Like clockwork, each mid-January, we celebrate the founding of the studio, and the celebrations have been increasingly flamboyant. This year we’re (hoping) to outdo ourselves with a trifold whammy: an Amplitude collection-wide free weekend, the release of two new major expansions, and plenty of unlockable community content. As a bonus, Endless Space 1 will be free for life for anyone Steam connecting to our community co-creation platform Games2Gether. Wanna participate? Here’s how:
Free Weekend Community Challenge: Explore Galaxies, Unlock Content
Put those wallets away. From January 24th – 28th, all Amplitude games are free to play. Already a fan? You own all the games? Well first things first: hi, let’s be friends. Secondly, now is the time to convince those other friends that the Endless Universe is worth a test drive.
EXPLORE THE GALAXY…
We made a fancy free-weekend website. We think you should check it out. In it, we ask you to take on the role of an Endless Space 2 recon ship. We’re tracking how many systems our collective Endless Space 2 players explore during the full 72 hours of the free weekend.
… AND EXPAND THE GAME.
For each “number of systems explored” milestone, new rewards are unlocked. The unlocked rewards will available to everyone for free in a future patch.
Check out the free weekend website here.
Two New Expansions Coming in Hot
Again, on the theme of outdoing ourselves for Endless Day, we’re releasing DOUBLE new expansions, for Endless Space 2 and Endless Legend, respectively.
ENDLESS SPACE 2 – PENUMBRA
The long awaited, community-designed espionage faction is making its publicly playable debut, alongside supercool features like hacking and invisibility modules for your ship. For those you wanna-be (or real!) spies and hackers, now is your time to shine! Well, provided you’re ready to shine cloaked, in the shadows.
Endless Space 2 – Penumbra is available for $12.99 / €12.99 / £10.99 + 10% off HERE
ENDLESS LEGEND – SYMBIOSIS
Our Argentinian partners NGD Studios are back at it again in this ultra-slick collaboration that brings new forms of life to the fading planet of Auriga. Symbiosis introduces the Mykara, a spore-like and infectiously fun-to-play, aggressive faction. It also introduces gigantic beasts known as the Urkans, free for any faction to fight or tame and use to their benefit.
Endless Legend Symbiosis is available for $12.99 / €12.99 / £10.99 + 10% off HERE.
Both expansions are available as a bundle for an additional 10% off HERE.
