Fulqrum Publishing and Kalla Gameworks today announce that Scattered Empires – the first major Content Update for story-driven, sci-fi grand strategy title The Pegasus Expedition is now available via Steam, GOG.com and Epic Games Store. The free update introduces Scenarios, which are a brand-new way for players to experience the game.
Scenarios offer a more freeform and traditional sandbox 4X gameplay experience, decoupled from the narrative-led structure of the game’s story campaign, with each new scenario serving up fresh objectives and settings.
In Scattered Empires, the first of four planned early access content updates, players will find their intrepid expedition at a randomised starting location somewhere within the Pegasus Galaxy, faced with the challenging objective of building six Arges Facilities in six different colonies – which are the highest tier of an inhabited world. All gameplay mechanics and features from the main campaign are featured in the scenario, allowing players to explore, colonise, research and wage war throughout the galaxy as they see fit.
Scenarios also introduce playable factions to the game, with Scattered Empires giving players the choice of four human fleets – The Zeus Link, 1st Expeditionary Fleet, The Daras Combine’s Al-Musta’mara and The Pegasus Republic. Each fleet offers their own unique set of advantages and disadvantages that will significantly impact playstyle and the scenario gameplay experience.
The Pegasus Expedition is a story-driven sci-fi grand strategy game set in a key moment for humankind’s survival. Facing an overwhelming threat at home, humanity sends an expedition to the Pegasus Galaxy in a desperate attempt to find a refuge for the population of Earth, only to find themselves in the middle of an interstellar war they inadvertently started.
