PSA: FTL’s Advanced Edition Expansion is Out Now

Update: Oh hell, I forgot to mention that the Advanced Edition expansion is free if you already own FTL, and it comes at no extra charge if you’re buying the game new. So now you definitely should go update.

Original story:

The rather large and exciting-sounding expansion to spacey rogue-like FTL: Faster Than Light is available for download right now, and you should get on that.

Of course, if you have a Steam version of the game, it’s probably already updated (or it will be soon). But FTL was available through other areas before it made its way to Steam — most notably on, and a few times in Humble Bundles. If you’re a GoG customer, pop over to the site and access your account to download the update. Do the same at; if you need your key resent, use this link.

If you haven’t been following along, FTL: Advanced Edition adds lots of new content to the game, including new systems like the cloning bay and a new alien race in the lanius.

For those of you who haven’t purchased FTL, we highly recommend it (check out our review of the stock edition). You can snag it for $9.99 in the Humble Store or on as mentioned, on Steam, or at the FTL website. There’s also a new iPad edition that features all the new content that runs the same price as the PC version. Check back on Monday for our review of the Advanced Edition content.

Seems like a pretty big thing to forget to mention.

@Red Menace

Clearly I was too excited.
