Amplitude Studios announced today that their hit space combat/strategy game is now available on the Mac – complete with cross-platform multiplayer.
“We are hugely excited with the digital success of Endless Space so far and the acclaim by the press for the game,” said Matheiu Girard, CEO of Amplitude Studios. “We felt it was our duty to also bring the game to Mac users. We have have been working to realize its completion all summer and it is a thrill to announce this version today. We hope to welcome many players and expect to see some cross-platform multiplayer rivalries pop up.”
