FTL: Advanced Edition Arrives To Frustrate Some More On April 3rd

Posted by , | Views: 8,951

FTL: Advanced Edition is the free expansion to the extremely frustrating FTL game and it will be released on April the 3rd!

Truth be told I still haven't even finished FTL on easy, becuase to be honest I don't find that easy at all! I've only ever reached the boss battle twice in my many hours played.

FTL: Advanced Edition adds a new race and many enchancements to make a great game even better.

I'm still shocked it is going to be a free DLC, not many developers put that much effort in for existing customers, good stuff. Article taken from

So I might actually be able to play the two copies of FTL I bought last year - I learned better than to jump into a Rougelike before all of the extra content was released after having to spend three months bashing through Dungeons of Dredmor again with all of the DLCs added. ;)

I'm not sure if it's just me, but my FTL runs are way shorter than in Dungeons of Dredmor. Dredmor is a way deeper & richer game in nearly every way (classes, unlockables, descriptive text, puzzle variety, etc).

I would suggest that those who've the chance to do so might consider running through the game few times before playing the Advanced Edition. Some of the new changes have the potential to make it feel quite different.

Personally? I've had great fun with it, but have exhausted it's entertainment value and await new content with interest.

Yep, I'm the same -- I had my fair share of fun with FTL, but found it getting a bit long in the tooth now. I'm looking forward to booting it back up with the extra content though.

This is awesome.

I as well have only made it to the boss like 2 - 3 times. That being said, I've probably sunk at least 15 or so hours into this game.

Can't wait to play this.

Looks like I picked up this game just in time. Looking forward to the update
