While the exact details of how the race will work haven’t been officially announced, we do know that The Unfallen are a race of sentient trees who will slowly expand into the stars in search of peace. This makes them very different than the other, more bloodthirsty races in ES2 and should provide a pretty unique experience.
But while we’re happy to have another interesting option in ES2, that’s not the real reason we’re so excited about the Unfallen. This last addition to the game is one suggested by the community. Specifically, it was first introduced by none other than our very own Rob “Devildog” Honaker! Of course, no project this large can be the effort of just one person, so we also have to congratulate Koradji, who created the backstory for the Unfallen, and Digitalhawk96, who is responsible for their unique look.
So congrats to Rob and team for having their idea brought to life. We can’t wait to give the Unfallen a go when the game launches on May 19. You’ll be sure to see more coverage of Endless Space 2 soon enough, so be sure to check back!
