Sega went on to state that Amplitude Studios is “working hard” on Together We Rule, the game’s first expansion, coming to PC on November 9.
Together We Rule is a diplomacy-focused expansion for the game, allowing players to vote and decide on global doctrines and arbitrate international conflicts, infiltrate other empires with Agents to gain leverage and force them to act for your benefit, as well as introducing a new Diplomacy affinity. According to Sega, the expansion will “see the world in a new light and manage conflicts differently with new gameplay features focused on diplomacy and espionage.”
“Gather information via offensive infiltration and secret agents, build embassies to deepen international ties, and lead global relations between all empires via the Congress of Humankind,” added Sega.
