FTL: Advanced Edition dated as both free update and iPad launch

FTL: Advanced Edition arrives both as a brand new premium iPad game and a free update to the existing rogue-like on the same date.


Developer Subset Games has announced an April 3 release date for both versions.

Advanced Edition adds a host of new features to FTL including new races, drones, augments and ships; mind control, back up battery and hacking ship systems; the clone bay variant of the med bay; a new sector with lore penned by Chris Avellone; and a hard mode.

A hard mode. Why.

The iPad version will go for $10 but the new features will arrive as a free update for existing Linux, Mac and PC releases. Notably, the new content can be switched off by purists.

    Best gaming news this year.

    Really, really hope Subset release this on Android. Will happily pay $10 again for a mobile version.

    Superb game.

    I was slightly shocked to see that I’ve put 50 hours into this according to Steam.

    Here’s hoping the new edition gives me 50 more.

    Too bad there’s still no Android version.
