Endless Space 2 official artwork of the Vaulters faction

This shouldn't come as much of a surprise given that it was announced during Amplitude's recent 7th anniversary celebration, but Endless Space 2 has now finally received the long-awaited Vaulters faction as a part of the very first paid DLC! You can also expect to see the Sisters of Mercy as a minor civilization, the ability to negotiate with pirates, a variety of new exotic combat modules toy around with, new quests, and the list goes on.

If you're not familiar with the Endless universe and you're wondering what exactly the Vaulters are all about, allow me to share with you two of the recent trailers. The first one is a cinematic intro that sets up their lore and storyline, while the second one shows off their in-game features. Have a look:

The Vaulters expansions is currently available on Steam at a €11 price tag. I haven't played it myself, but the reviews so far seem to be quite positive, which isn't exactly a surprise given Amplitude's excellent track record with new factions so far. Whether the Vaulters and a couple of bonus features are actually worth €11, however, that I'll for you to decide.

And finally, let me send you off with a recent developer interview discussing the Vaulters. The video features a decent chunk of gameplay as well, so you should get a pretty good idea of what to expect from the Vaulters and all of the new features. Enjoy!
