FTL: Advanced Edition launched today and the lives of space fairing nerds all around the world got a little better. If you own FTL on Steam the new updates will await you when you sign in or if you want to try FTL on iPad, you can now pick it up for $10.

If you are looking for a list of changes to the game the FTL developers made a fairly complete list available. Because of the popularity of the update the FTL site is getting hammered but the link is below. So far I like that there are many more changes than they advertised. It's great to have a team under promise and over deliver!


Ben Prunty has made the new FTL tracks available for download and they are totally free. I listed to them all today and they really add quite a bit to the games tone. The new Lanius tracks and "Lost Ship" are quite good.


Curious what people think of the new update. Drop your thoughts in the comments or post your FTL: Advanced Edition review on the site.

Just died, naturally. I'm really enjoying the Advanced Edition. They've put in a lot of polish first of all. It would be a lot to try and list out, but I definitely like how when you hover your mouse over a sector it shows you the next possible jumps from there.

The new systems are interesting. I sold my med bay and bought a clone bay. I think that's going to take some getting used to, but seems pretty cool.

A lot of new quests and instances made for an entirely unique feel again :)

It's been a while since I've loaded Steam, since I've been playing StarCraft II. Today, I noticed FTL has an update. I'll have to give it a try sometime. I haven't played FTL in a while.

Yep, it's the whole "Advanced Edition" business. Speaking of...

It's been a while since I've played it. I probably should give the new update a try. I'm interested in what anyone else has to say that's played the new version. What do you think? Is it better? Is it any easier? Hahaha

I played a few games and plan on posting a review on it in the next week or so.
