Endless Space 2 Galactic Statecraft 1.1.0 – A sci-fi turn-based 4X strategy game

The Galactic Statecraft Free Update offers plenty of new options to interact and collaborate with other major players, as well as a series of new features and game improvements. For those who favor the subtle art of negotiation rather than brutal bloodshed, the game now offers new diplomatic means for faction leaders to solve conflictual situations, making collaboration more rewarding and accessible than ever.
The Galactic Statecraft Update includes
New options are now available when players make alliances with other factions. You can now react to your allies’ decisions, leave the alliance in case of a declared war, or strengthen your bond with your allies, allowing you to benefit from faction-specific bonuses.
Players and AI empires now have access to a tool to solve conflictual situations through diplomacy. Triggered by specific events (such as trespassing, nearby colonization, …), players will use diplomatic dialog over several turns, where both factions will have choices to make.
The first player to control three systems on a constellation will “own” this constellation, granting specific resource bonuses and showing everyone who’s boss around here.
The pressure feature has been reworked, to offer a more transparent and clear interface, so players can better see how it is affecting their relationships with neighboring empires.
Players can now ask their allies to attack or defend specific locations in the galaxy, by placing a marker directly in the galaxy view. This will improve communication among allies, as text can be added. Note that the AI will also use it and react to your indicators, making cooperation with AI allies a lot more rewarding! Time to work on that pincer maneuver…
Weapon design has been deeply rethought, and a complete rebalancing was implemented between projectile & energy weapons. Projectiles weapons now have a high risk/high reward philosophy, while their energy counterparts deal more constant damage. Make sure to check your fleets before you head into battle!
Minor factions will now only create fleets to defend their systems, and their reaction to your fleet will depend on the locals’ inclination. Space scourge now come from pirate lairs, that can appear on nearby uninhabited systems. Attack & destroy these lairs to curb the pirate threat!
Increasing your system level and your population will propel new space stations orbiting your colonized planets.
