Amplitude Studios has released a free update for Endless Space 2 entitled Muck & Makers.
Muck & Makers brings three new elements to the turn-based strategy game: a hero, a minor faction and a quest. Amplitude Studios described it thus: “Slime, grime, and redemption are the stars this week in the “Muck & Makers” Endless Space 2 free update, available now via Games2Gether. Enjoy all the trappings of a space-dump fairy tale: a clumsy-but-lovable amphibian hero, a minor faction hell bent on turning trash into treasure and, naturally, a quest called Munchie Madness.”
Acquiring the Muck & Makers update isn’t quite as straightforward as you might expect. Amplitude Studios explained: “Games2Gether is our collaborative video game co-creation platform, where we work with the community to build better games via voting, forums, and more. It’s also a great place to claim free Endless rewards! To claim your Muck & Makers free update, simply logon to the Games2Gether platform, select the update from the rewards page here, and the update will install immediately on your Steam account.”
The developer provided some more in-depth descriptions of what Muck & Makers brings: “Hero – Fore Sagazh Jabble: a carefree, curious and accident-prone creature, integrated to the society of Heroes when an Academy explorer ship arrived to study their planet. Minor Faction – Basryxo: this society evolved in the detritus of what is essentially a garbage planet, as myriad forms of waste were dumped on the world for centuries. Starting from ragged scavengers to become pragmatic and efficient recyclers, they have learned to turn garbage into gold. Quest – Munchie Madness: the coolest, tastiest treat across the galaxy is a new fast food, Haroshuarm. The trend has taken settled planets by storm, but unfortunately, the incredible leap in take-out consumption has created vast quantities of garbage, that you will need to handle.”
