Are you ready to have even more of your life sucked away by FTL’s infinite, endlessly twisting black hole of finely calibrated systems? Then you are in luck, person with an improbable amount of time on your hands, because FTL: Advanced Edition is just around the corner. Or rather, the space equivalent of a corner. There are not a lot of corners in space.
Advanced Edition is an expansion to 2012’s death-tacular roguelike masochism-fest, and it includes everything from new sectors and events to a story by Chris Avellone to miiiiiiind control to a race of evil robots who literally eat war.
“The time has come! We will release both FTL for the iPad and the FTL: Advanced Edition expansion on April 3rd!”
“FTL: Advanced Edition is a free content expansion for FTL. All current (and future) customers will receive this update regardless of where they purchased it. Prior to release, we will post detailed instructions on how to get the update from whatever digital vendor you originally purchased FTL.”
So there you have it. FTL: Advanced Edition will soon claim your life and the lives of all you hold dear, both literally and figuratively speaking if you, like, love your in-game ship’s crew members or something. Are you ready?
