Endless Space 2 - Renegade Fleets free update info & trailer

Six new fleet skins, the long awaited Hissho comic, AI modding, and a making-of video to boot–we hope you ‘fall’ in love with this Endlesss Space 2 community update.

Whether it’s back-to-school, back-to-work, or back-to-space, September can be hard. Let’s be real, you can’t be caught dead attempting diplomacy wearing last year’s fleet skins… the AI is judging you! It’s time for a new Fall look.

Luckily, during last month’s Endless Free Weekend, we gave you guys the chance to unlock 6 new fleet skins for our strategic space opera Endless Space 2 by playing a total of 1 million hours across our games. We were thrilled to see players blast right through to play a total of 2.8 million hours (guess we’ll have to up the ante next time!).

Here’s a list of everything we’re dropping today: FREE FLEET SKINS

As promised, today we’re delivering the following fabulous looks for your spacetime pleasure:

  • Riftborn "Redshifted" skin - Particles in zones inhabited by Riftborn are occasionally redshifted as a temporary adaptation to slow the local effects of corruption, an important tool in offsetting problems encountered by their ships in the galaxy.

  • Sophon "Mavros" skin - The intellectually superior Sophons would never admit to being jealous of the Mavros’ swagger, but occasionally like to remind others that they, too, are entirely capable of blowing up moons...
  • Unfallen "Firekeepers" skin - The Firekeepers support the Unfallen lifecycle by preparing the fields with brushfires and melting resin to cover the Unfallen seeds. These ceremonial hulls commemorate this organization.

  • Vodyani "Heretic" skin - When Isyander St. Shaiad decided to become a heretic, he changed more than just his name. He rebuilt the armor of his ships in crimson and white, colors that he believed were initially used on the Endless altars to the Lost.

  • Lumeris "Buccaneer" skin - A nod to the piracy between friends that was common before the Four Families became structured and formalized. There are rumors though, that some of these fleets hail from a shadowy, rogue operation…

  • Horatio "Emerald" skin - Horatio liked emerald green this weekend. That is all.

Since Artificial Intelligence seems to be a trending topic these days, we figured we’d take a moment to highlight that you can now create mods for our AI. Do you dream of docile Cravers and war-mongering Sophons? Make your fantasy a reality and share it with others via Steam’s Workshop tools (and hey, check out some of the other cool stuff there while you’re at it).

Since you blew past our expectations, we figured we should buck up our end of deal. That’s why we’ve also included the brand new Hissho comic in the ES2 update!
We’re also releasing the fourth installment of Quality Time with Jeff, this time focused on “Art”. In it, our 3D artist discusses the paths our ships take from 2D concepts to the full-fledged ships you know and love.
