Iceberg Interactive has announced that developer Amplitude Studios' upcoming sci-fi 4X strategy game, Endless Space, will be hitting digital distribution on the 4th of July. This follows a Steam beta in which 20,000 gamers put the title through its paces.

Endless Space allows players to control their empire's economy, diplomacy, science and war powers, and utilize their resources to conquer the galaxy, by force, by wealth, by diplomacy or perhaps a combination of all three.

The game also uses a new online platform,GAMES2GETHER, which will let the community "track the development team’s objectives, progress, and achievements, while gaining access to early builds, providing feedback, and discussing the game’s future with the developers themselves, giving them an active role in the future of Endless Space."

Endless Space will cost a mere $29.99 USD, and is available on all major digital distribution platforms. Check out the official site here for more info.

I'll await the reviews for this one, and perhaps buy later down the line. Too many games, too little time.
I see "Legends of Pegasus" has also been finally given a release date as well: 27th July.

4th is close :)
But I'll wait for reviews as well, I've watched a few videos and the combat is really cinematic but mostly out of your control, its only purpose seems to be to look good. I'm not saying i'm against that, I don't play the battles in Total War either unless they are crucial, I prefer to only play on the strategic level. I'm only mentioning it cause I hope that you're able to auto-resolve the battles cause otherwise watching them over and over again would become super boring to me very fast.

Just so you know, this isn't Sins of a Solar Empire. This is more like Master of Orion 2 with hot graphics. You're not supposed to be in tactical control. This is more about grand strategy 4X.

I'm not bothered by that at all since I actually prefer it that way, i was just worried if the AI can auto-resolve the battles well enough for you to ignore them altogether.

Let us know what you think, Nocc. I bought and played the original "Masters of Orion" when it was released and it was pretty good, despite having lacklustre graphics even then. I had high hopes for "MoO 3" but that is supposed to be a shocker. Perhaps this will be the one.

I can only give my first impressions after an hour of playing: it simply feels right from the first turn onward, nothing felt awkward or out of place.

It seems like a completely finished game to me I didn't notice anything that made it feel like a beta, it also looks fantastic.

But like I said that was after only an hour of playing, I'm sure SI will have a review up before I can give my definite answer to anyone anyways :).
