Endless Space 2 gets a free weekend alongside a diplomacy revamp

endless space 2 galactic statecraft free weekend

Whether you’re an old hand at the strategic galactic opera of Endless Space 2 or you want to jump in for the for the first time, this week is full of good news for you. The game will be getting a free weekend alongside and a new free update.

Find out why Endless Space 2 is worth your time in our full review.

The free weekend starts now, and will run through November 20 on Steam. If you like what you play, you can pick up your progress with half off of the game for the duration of the event.

But if you’re already in on Endless Space 2, the more relevant news is a free update called Galactic Statecraft. New diplomacy options will allow you to more easily resolve situations without bloodshed, and build stronger alliances with allies for more formidable bonuses. New coordination tools will also help you organize attacks and defenses across the galaxy with friendly empires.

On top of the diplomacy revamp, you’ll also see the addition of pirate fortresses, new end-game bonuses, orbital stations, bonuses for controlling constellations, and new events, plus some weapons rebalancing.

It’s not the first free update for Endless Space 2, and it certainly won’t be the last. Even if diplomacy and statecraft are a little less exciting than the bigger explosions update we’ve already had, it’ll still be a welcome addition.
