Endless Space 2 is a turn-based, 4X space-strategy game, where players become leaders, guiding a civilization in making its first steps into the cold depths of interstellar space. Get the best spaceships, perfect your strategy and lead your civilization to victory.

Endless Space 2 has been in Early Access for two months now, and recently received a major update. Actually, this is the first Early Access update for the game. The release notes revealed many game changes, as well as fixes and improvements for a better gaming experience.

Unfortunately, Update 0.1.19 also brings many issues of its own, that sometimes severely ruin the gaming experience.

Endless Space 2 reported bugs

Gamers report that Endless Space 2 is lagging more during space battles than prior to installing the update. Actually, the overall lag is worse now, but it’s most annoying during battles. Here’s how two gamers describe the issue:

“The game seems to lag overall. There is a noticeable drop in speed at the end of turn and even during notifications. Could be the game is trying to auto-save.”

“I had the same issues. Before the patch I was able to run the game with fantastic parameters and no lag ever occurred. Now the campain is still quite smooth but my FPS drops every time I launch a battle, whatever the graphical settings I choose. Some graphical distortions occurred too in battle for close camera views.”

Other players also report that sometimes, during space battles, all ships become invisible. Amplitude Studios has already acknowledged these two bugs and is working to develop and send out a patch as soon as possible.

Endless Space 2 is also affected by loading issues. When gamers try to load their saved games, the yellow loading line stops at 2/3. Verifying Steam cache doesn’t solve the problem. It appears this is another issue that requires a quick patch.

“Just startet a new Game with the UE after downloading the Patch. After a Break i tried to load the saved Game and…. nothing happens. It doesnt load. The Yellow Line stopped at 2/3… anyone the sanme Problem or is there someone who loaded a Game already?”

Endless Space 2 in still in Early Access, and we’re sure most of these bugs will get fixed in the coming weeks. If you’ve come across any workarounds to fix the issues mentioned above, feel free to list the troubleshooting steps in the comment section below.
