Endless Space, a 4X title from Amplitude Games, was released yesterday on the perhaps poorly planned holiday of July 4. Combine that with the very real 4X barrier of entry and we fear Endless Space may be off to a troubling beginning. Of course, it has at least one things going for it -- Endless Space is boundlessly gorgeous, as you can tell from this launch trailer.
8 civilizations, hundreds of star systems, alliances, customizable armadas and of course the limitless battle for control of the universe. Endless Space is everything a 4X fan might want, monopolizing resources through subtle trade or military dominance, one turn at a time.
If you're looking for an unending space opera to help you power through the dog days of summer with, then Endless Space might just be exactly what you need. It's available now on PC for around $30.
