FTL’s release date has finally been announced, and I couldn’t be more excited. This roguelike space adventure has been really popular on PC and Mac and you’ll be able to get it on your iPad on April 3rd for $9.99 without any kind of IAPs. It was a natural fit for the platform but one that took a lot longer than expected to be announced.
FTL on iPad will also come with the new content found in the advanced edition that is featured in the trailer below:
In FTL you guide your crew through different systems while micro-managing every aspect of the ship. On top of that strategy layer you’ve got a full Choose your own Adventure Game that will impact your journey. A Crew members could die or you could find some new weapons just by exploring that asteroid. It’s also a heartless game that will challenge everybody, and you will die. A lot.
FTL is one of those games that people have always clamored for on the iPad, and come April 3rd we’ll finally be getting our wish. For players on the PC, that’s also when all the new Advanced Edition content will be available for you. Mark your calendars for next week.
