I don't know if you've noticed it from my repeated coverings of what's happening with Endless Space 2, but this is a game I'm very excited about. I've been a fan of the games produced by Amplitude Studios for awhile now, and while I was somewhat worried about their partnership with Sega (given what's happened to a lot of the other games they get their hands on) I breathed a sigh of relief however, when I powered up the game and started to play around with it. Despite being in early access, Endless Space 2 could turn out to be Amplitude Studios at its finest.
They're a young developer, Amplitude Studios is. They started out as a little project comprised of former Ubisoft employees back in 2011 out in Paris. The following year they released their first game, Endless Space. Unfortunately I wasn't aware of Amplitude Studios at the time so I missed the launch but boy am I glad I was around for the sequel. They've come a long way in a short period of time, recently being acquired by Sega Europe, which is something I've had my reservations about but I think that Amplitude has created a real winner with this one.
Endless Space 2 is available on Steam for $29.99, but please keep in mind it is still in early access, so there's only four factions available and some features are missing. We can expect it sometime early 2017, after its gone though a few more months of letting the fans toy around with it as it currently is because if there is one thing the developers are known for its letting the fans have plenty of time to see how the game is turning out and then letting them put their own two cents in.
