Distant Worlds 2: Factions - Quameno & Gizureans out now

Published on September 07, 2023

Welcome back explorers, 

The wait is over. Quameno & Gizureans, the two new playable factions for Distant Worlds 2, have invaded the Galaxy.

Two alien species, two factions, two societies follow very different paths. 

The puzzle-loving Quameno focus on research, with their whole society aimed at unlocking the knowledge and mysteries of the universe. Trivial matters, such as trade, espionage, or even diplomacy, are only seen as distractions from their goal of research and intellectual prowess.

The Gizureans are vast both in numbers and in their hunger to consume the galaxy’s resources to keep their ever-expanding population happy. With a mysterious past, hinting at a once-whole hive mind from which only a limited shared consciousness remains, this aggressive faction engineers their ships with many fighters and special partially organic hex armor. 

Each of these new factions also comes with their own special storyline and unique story locations, adding to the possible exploration events and to your knowledge of galactic lore.  The Quameno will give you some additional insights on the Ancient galaxy and some of the mysteries the Ancient Guardians left behind, while the history of the Gizureans is connected with that of the Hive threat as well as the ancient enemy known as the Shakturi!

In case you have missed Erik’s streams on the two new factions of Distant Worlds 2 and the recent Discovery Update, don’t worry. You can rewatch both streams here:
