Fulqrum Publishing and Kalla Gameworks today release The Exodus – the final Content Update for the story-driven, sci-fi grand strategy title The Pegasus Expedition – which is now available via Steam, GOG.com and Epic Games Store. The update introduces a brand-new gameplay scenario, alongside gameplay improvements and an assortment of gameplay/bug fixes.
In this new scenario players face a terrifying and all-consuming enemy, The Biomass, as it spreads across the galaxy. Players will grapple in an intense race against time, as they fight to survive long enough to escape the clutches and ever-growing threat of consumption from this horrific enemy.
This update also brings changes to the galaxy generation, making resource exploitation potential more specialised and highlighting this to the player, making for a more straightforward approach to their economic challenges and conquests. In addition, a large-scale overhaul to The Pegasus Expedition’s combat mode gives players greater control over the way they approach each different battle through their campaign.
A further change implemented for ease of use is the introduction of structure filtering, a new tool that players can use to easily locate the structures they require while building.
