Developer L3O Interactive has released thefor its 4X space strategy title Horizon, which along with fixing several bugs adds full mod support, allowing modders to create their own quests and content.
There's also eight new random events, an automatic Governor mode that allows you to hand off control of planets in the late game, and optimisation for "super fast" turns late on if you're running a large galaxy game.
Horizon was released back in February this year. It's had two other major updates, and this third one apparently marks the end of the game's development. “With this third free update we feel Horizon has come to full fruition, concluding the game’s development cycle," said L3O Interactive’s Raffi Parsekhian.
I've added the major new features in the update below. You can check out the full.
