Visions of the Unseen (EL) and Chronicles of the Lost (ES) add-ons will be available tomorrow on Steam (automatic update). We'll then post the detailed release notes for each game! Today, we're focusing on the Vaulters who got some nice additions in both games.
The Vaulters in Endless Space
The Vaulters now have their own introduction video in Endless Space. Just a screenshot for now: you'll be able to see it in game tomorrow!
The Vaulters in Endless Legend
We added a really cool Vaulters background scene in the main menu:
Come back tomorrow for the detailed release notes. ~Amplitude
Indeed, we're coming back to Endless Space one more time, with the upcoming "Chronicles of the Lost" add-on for Endless Space and Endless Space: Disharmony. We previously talked about the new random events that would be introduced to Endless Space, but today, find out more about some community requests we received and that made it into the game.
Heroes sharing portraits was something players wanted us to improve. For production reasons, we simply couldn't do in the past as we lacked the time and resources. We hope you'll appreciate the new art: that's 20 new administrator, corporate commander, pilot, and adventurer heroes!
Classes: Corporate / Adventurer
Name & Description: Stormbrow - There is a war cry among the Hissho that would roughly translate as, "Come at me!". Stormbrow, a fearsome fighter, was known for her use of this challenge and her near-impervious defences -- as an individual and as a leader of troops. This made her part of an augmentation selection. Though she was one of the 8% that survived, she was not of the remaining 88% that was still good at taking orders...
Faction: the United Empire
Classes: Corporate / Pilot
Name & Description: Yeranef - Yeranef's career followed an average arc of success, as she was a capable but unremarkable corporate lieutenant. However, an unprotected exposure to over-excited Dust in a military research facility triggered changes that launched her up the corporate pyramid--until boredom drove her to seek challenges elsewhere.
Classes: Pilot / Adventurer
Name & Description: Glies.Warr1B4 - "Warrior Amoeba" is, without surprise, viewed as an impossible oxymoron. Yet Glies.Warr1B4, driven almost to madness as he watched his fleet get destroyed by the guns of an ancient Endless defence satellites, vowed to never again avoid -- or lose -- a battle.
The AI & Custom Factions
This is something that was actually already possible, if you knew how to deal with xml files. But we decided to make it much easier: the AI can now play the custom factions that you have created.

Have a nice weekend, we'll have plenty of details for both Endless Legend and Endless Space add-ons next week.
