Welcome to Endless Space 2 my friends! In this first preview entry looking at the very early access version that was just released on Steam. In this first entry, and choosing my race — the scientific Sophons, of course, because I love me some science — I do what one always does in the first part of a 4X, eXplore. There’s a lot to like here so far, quests, heroes, politics, interesting decisions, all within a lovely interface. This was my favorite part of the original game as well, so I’m hopeful that it maintains this awesomeness throughout.
