Electronic Arts has confirmed the release date of the first downloadable content for sandbox/strategy game Spore. "Galactic Adventures" will be yours, either through the Internets or at a local retailer on June 23rd. No word on a price yet.
The "Galactic Adventures" expansion offers quest-based missions for the "space phase" of the original game. It allows players to beam down to planets, play mission-based adventures and create their own customized adventures. Yes, I foresee a great gout of Mario-themed levels, as well as some interesting new uses for the "Sporn" people have created.
"Galactic Adventures" is the first of four Spore add-ons that are coming. Soon, we will see Spore Creature Keeper, a PC title aimed at a younger audience that lets kids train and nurture created creatures; Spore Hero a Wii adventure game focusing on creativity and evolution and Spore Hero Arena where Spore creatures fight to the death.
Below is a look at "Galactic Adventures" in action -- in video form.
