Endless Space: Disharmony OUT NOW on Steam
DLC release comes with exciting launch trailer
Haarlem, The Netherlands – 26 June 2013 – Endless Space players will see their universe extend massively with the Endless Space: Disharmony expansion pack, which will be released on Steam later today. Developer Amplitude Studios is very pleased to enrich its 4x space strategy universe and give the community a new level of complexity.
“I’m very excited to get this into the players’ hands,” said Romain de Waubert, Creative Director. “We’ve put a lot of effort into addressing the parts of the game and gameplay that either we or the community thought could be improved. We’ve come a long way already with the four free add-ons, and the expansion pack is the icing on the Endless cake."
As previously promised, Amplitude will reward its loyal players the ‘Sheredyn Faction’, ‘Endless Hero’ and ‘Automaton ship models’. These free items will unlock to all players upon the release of the Disharmony expansion pack.
An official launch trailer accompanies the release and can be streamed at the Iceberg Youtube channel or downloaded here: http://www.iceberg-games.com/
Endless Space: Disharmony can be purchased as DLC on Steam for $9,99 / €9,99 / £8.99. Publisher Iceberg Interactive will be releasing the English retail version (key-only box with 16 page stellar art book) this Friday 28th of June.

Background story for “Endless Space: Disharmony” expansion pack
The Harmony had been moving since the birth of the universe, passing through the galaxies, seeking The Core. Their migration was deliberate, calm, inevitable.
Dust was their downfall. In the galaxy of the Endless they were ensnared; this strange technological creation that affected particles, fields and waves broke the single movement of the Harmony into a cacophony of individual elements. In this galaxy, the Harmony have fallen from grace and turned into gravity-enchained individuals.
The Harmony saw Dust, then, as a menace or a plague, and set out to rid the universe of its effects. But for the Harmony, creatures of mineral, there is no difference between an "inhabited" or "uninhabited" planet -- they are only "infected" or "clean."
To the rest of the galaxy the arrival of the Harmony was a minor apocalypse. They attacked in small ships, targeting Dust-infected infrastructures and populations. Other peoples responded in kind, creating Fighter and Bomber craft to counter the Harmony's unusual tactics, bringing the war to their enemy. Planetary bombardment and invasion will take frightening new turns; new heroes will rise up to counter the threats.
The Era of Disharmony is coming!
