Fulqrum Publishing and Kalla Gameworks today announce that Scattered Empires – the first major Content Update for the 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 randomized 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, colonize, 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 its own unique set of advantages and disadvantages that will significantly impact playstyle and the scenario gameplay experience.
