4X strategy Endless Space blasts off next week

Is there something missing in your life, something you can't quite place your finger on? It may very be what psychologists refer to as a 'space-based 4X strategy void.' Treatment, then, may come in the form of Endless Space, which publisher Iceberg has announced will hit PC on July 4.

Developed by Amplitude Studios, Endless Space all the eXploration, eXpansion, eXploitation and eXtermination one would expect from the classic PC genre, having you juggle economy, diplomacy, science, war, and all that jazz. You've got eight civilizations to choose from as you set out to conquer the galaxy in your own way.

Endless Space will cost $30. Rocket on over to the official site for more information. Here's an older trailer teasing the alpha access offered as a pre-order bonus.
