Today marks the beginning of ‘The Endless Day’, a celebration by the studio to honour its sixth anniversary. Amplitude studios are a modern gaming success story, they started as indie devs just six years ago, they went from working on a niche game (Endless Space), to revitalizing a genre (4X), to mastering it (Endless legend). Last year they officially relinquished their status as indie devs when they signed up with Sega.
In the past I’ve had some concerns about Sega’s marketing practices and their poor communication. However, Amplitude have been with Sega nearly six months now, and they’ve only continued to support and include their fan base in their game design process, as can be seen by the Games2Gether project. In fact, this level of community inclusion by a big developer is almost unheard of.
As part of The Endless Day celebrations, Amplitude have revealed the latest faction for Endless Space 2; The Horatio, who will be available to Early Access customers early February. The Endless celebrations also continue over the weekend with various promotions, giveaways and surprises for their fans.
Paris, France – January 19, 2017 – Award-winning game developer Amplitude Studios is celebrating its annual “Endless Day” starting today – a special event that will feature surprises for fans of the Endless series.
To honour Amplitude’s sixth anniversary, Amplitude revealed a new playable faction in Endless Space 2: The Horatio, from the original Endless Space. They will be coming to the game in a major Early Access update later this month. Additionally, players can expect to see Steam discounts on multiple Amplitude titles (Endless Space, Endless Legend™ and Dungeon of the Endless™), in-game events from January 21-25, and more!

“Endless Day has become one of our favourite days of the year as we get to celebrate the anniversary of our studio with our community and fans,” said Romain de Waubert de Genlis, Creative Director at Amplitude Studios. “We are looking forward to a great 2017, and can’t wait to reveal even more information on Endless Space 2 soon!”
Known for its deep, engaging, and gorgeous 4X strategy games, Amplitude Studios won the venerable 2013 Golden Cube and Community Choice Unity Awards for Endless Space and the 2015 Best 3D Visual Experience for Endless Legend.
