Endless Space 2's exit from Early Access is a few days away and to gear up for release, developer Amplitude Studios has been putting out videos to highlight the game's 4X core (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit and eXterminate).

Endless Legend, a very good 4X strategy game for the PC, got a new expansion last week. It's a good time.
I reviewed the original Endless Space back in 2012, and found it a pretty snappy little 4X game, albeit one with a distinct lack of personality. From what I've played so far of Endless Space 2, we won't be suffering through that again.
Being an indie dev is great and all, but imagine a company like SEGA rolling up one day in its giant fun bus and making the following gleeful inquiry: "Hey, we think you're a bit of alright, want to come aboard?"

XCOM 2 isn't coming out until 2016. Rising Tide didn't revitalise Civilization: Beyond Earth. Endless Space 2 isn't out until next year. Master Of Orion isn't playable yet either and Galactic Civilizations 3 ... there's something not quite there. What on earth is a 4X fan to do?
One option is to hit up Endless Legend, the fantasy-themed 4X from Amplitude Studios. And if you're looking for something meaty to dive into over the holiday break, the game just got a massive update.
