Amplitude Studios, the studio behind Endless Space and Endless Legend, have released two trailers ahead of Gamescom for the upcoming Endless Space 2, revealing two races. The Sophons – analytical and knowledge-seeking – and the Cravers – dangerous and insectoid – return from the original Endless Space.
Amplitude has also announced a new contest, the Faction Creation Contest, in which fans can design the basis for a new race coming to Endless Space 2. Amplitude asks interested fans to submit their idea for a diplomatic race, through gameplay design, visual design, and narrative design. The contest runs from today, August 11th, through October 13th.
Endless Space 2 enters Steam Early Access this summer.
