Importantly, these new features allow players to craft stories about their civilization’s first contact with strangers from the stars. Of course, these stories and origins will change how your civilization views itself. Additionally, you can now have new interactions with pre-FTL civilizations. What role will you play when a new civilization enters the galaxy? Of course, players can check out the new release trailer for a look at some of the features coming with the First Contact pack.
