You can count on fighters, bombers and bigger explosions.
Endless Space 2 is adding a whole new dimension to its gameplay by adding fighters and bombers which can be deployed in the midst of battle. All as a part of a free Target Locked update.
Bombers are of course meant as a means to destroy larger ships and fighters are of the escort variety. The latter will probably also take the task of stopping enemy aircraft.
The patch notes will give you the gist of what is also expected to come our way, like the new raid quest for privateer gear and a new hero Jennifer Rach.
