FTL: Faster Than Light is set to get a brand new “Advanced Edition” update which brings along with it a brand new alien race, a brand new player ship, some new drones, and some all round gameplay improvements.
Most importantly and probably the most celebrated new feature coming to the Advanced Edition is the addition of a new alien race. Named The Lanius, metallic scavengers that rely on the absorption of minerals to sustain themselves. They have no need for oxygen but actively drain the air from any room they enter.
Along with the Lanius race the Advanced Edition comes with a new player ship, the Lanius Ship, that comes with its own achievements and alternate layout. There’s also expanded drone options; the Shield Drone which is pretty self explanatory and the Anti-Combat Drone which attacks other drones.
