FTL: Faster Than Light gets an expansion and an iPad release

FTL: Advanced Edition coming at the same time as the iPad release

Subset Games has made two big announcement for fans of their tough roguelike spaceship sim FTL: Faster Than Light.

Firstly, they have a new expansion called FTL: Advanced Edition which will bring in new enemies, augmentations systems and more. It also includes a few tweaks to the gameplay as well as adding the ability to save crew positions and save and exit during combat. The new additions can be turned on and off in the hangar before the game begins.

They've also been working on an iPad version of the game which will launch the same time as the expansion does on the PC. The iPad version will include all of the content from the original game and the expansion and uses an interface that has been tweaked and refined for touchscreen controls.
