The new expansion for the hit game lets you play as the Nakalim and also introduces The Academy as a playable faction.
Nakalim – This new major faction has a large technology headstart, but with weaker science, depends on discovering lost Relics to learn new technologies. Their relationship with the Academy allows them to gain control over other systems through the Influence of their temples.
Four new Heroes – The Nakalim are explorers, warriors, and believers. Use these heroes to master exploration and for developing systems and diplomatic influence.
New fleet – Re-discover and take control of your ancient territories with heavily defended exploration-oriented fleets.
Minor Faction – Xirmisala – Dust-sensitive philosophers whose skills were defined by the community via a Games2Gether vote.
Academy empire – If you had one question for Isyander, what would it be? Finally, the Academy becomes an empire with the ability to manage star systems, fleets, & colonize new worlds. Contribute to their expansion, and you will be duly rewarded with special Academy roles that will give you special powers & bonuses, as well as access to the Academy’s own fleet of impressive ships.
