Endless Space 2, the next chapter in the 4X space strategy series from Amplitude Studios, will be available starting in September, the developer today announced. In addition, they revealed the game’s third faction, the economically-focused aliens known as the Lumeris, at Gamescom, and now have a trailer introducing the race to the world.
Lumeris society is built on trade, economic growth, and the success of their business ventures. The amphibious people are prepared to expand and acquire their rivals in any environment. Their society is run by a series of families that control different aspects of the economy, and the balance of power between these families determines how their empire expands.
The Lumeris are not only the first faction new to Endless Space 2, they’ll be one of the four factions available in the Early Access release in September. Each faction has its own storyline, ranging from a quest to wrangle a rogue AI to a traditional political family facing the dangers of a new upstart.
