The Endless Wait is Almost Over

Forgive the pun, Endless Space 2 is finally coming to Steam Early Access on the 6th of October. However we really haven’t had to wait long.

I’ve said it before but it’s worth repeating, 2016 is the year of the space 4X. Just check out this list: Star Fringe, Masters Of Orion, Eclipse, Polaris Sector, Stellaris, Unending Galaxy, Pocket Space Empire, Stars in Shadow, Starpoint Gemini Warlords, Stardrive 2 Sector Zero (DLC total conversion), Falling Stars: War of Empires and now of course Endless Space 2.

That is a long list of space 4X games with many range of variations on the genre, covering: turn based, real time, and even a board conversion. Endless Space 2 is however, a very traditional 4x, sporting the tried and tested space lanes and turn based play. The finished game, if it is anything like its predecessor, will have jaw dropping artwork and absorbing stories for each race, as well as a universe bursting with discoveries from the best sci-fi ideas.

Endless Space 2 is the luxury 4x of 2016. It has a better pedigree than any other 4X game released this year, including the new Master of Orion, which is essentially Wargames’ first foray into the 4X market. If you want a universe that is captivating and beautiful then you could definitely do worse than Endless Space 2.
