Endless Space 2 The Riftborn official artwork

A couple of months have passed since the United Empire joined the Endless Space 2 faction roster, and soon there is going to be yet another addition. The March 23rd update will bring with it the long-awaited multiplayer mode, better AI, an advanced tutorial for new players, plenty of balance changes and bufixes, and most importantly, The Riftborn as a new playable faction.

If you're interested in learning a little bit more about these visitors from another dimension, look no further than the video down below. There is unfortunately no actual gameplay in there, but the visuals look pretty damn awesome, so its still well worth a watch. Have a look:

The details are currently a bit lacking, but apparently The Riftborn will come with a new and unique mechanic: the control of time. How exactly any of that will work, I'm afraid I have no idea, but if you're interested in the lore and The Riftborn ships you can find what you seek on the official wiki. And as a final note, here's a couple of images featuring The Riftborn:
