The iPad port of FTL: Faster Than Light and the game’s free expansion, FTL: Advanced Edition, will both be available April 3, developer #SubsetGames announced today.
Subset originally announced plans for the #AdvancedEdition and the iPad version last November. FTL was originally released on Linux, Mac and Windows in September 2012.
The Advanced Edition will be released as a free update to the existing game for everybody who already owns it or ever will own it, regardless of platform or the online store where it was purchased. The expansion introduces new systems and subsystems such as Clone Bay, Hacking and Mind Control; a tougher difficulty level, Hard Mode; and other changes like minor visual improvements.
FTL on iPad will run on iPad 2 and newer, and will cost $9.99 — the same as the PC version. The port includes the Advanced Edition content and features no in-app purchases.
“We are proud to say that the iPad version is a true equivalent to the PC in the experience it provides, which is why we are price matching to the PC version,” reads a blog post from Subset.
