Amplitude Studios’ latest expansion for Endless Space 2 is out now with Awakening and it brings a new faction to shake things up. The Nakalim were once a large empire that fell into ruin. However, now that they’ve awakened, it could be that their old deities, The Lost, could be returning.
The Nakalim are explorers at heart and receive a big head start in Technology. Science is their weakness so you need to find Relics to acquire new technologies. The Academy is also now an Empire and the Nakalim can work with them to convert other systems and gain rewards. You can also interact with the Academy’s leader Isyander directly.
Four new heroes, four new Academy roles, a new minor faction (the Xirmisala) and more have also been added with Awakening. Check it out today for $12.99 on Steam. Amplitude is also working on Humankind, a 4X style game rooted in real world civilizations but which allows players to mix and match traits to forge their own civilization. It’s out in 2020 for PC.
