According to Subset Games’ Twitter, FTL: Advanced Edition is officially slated for release on April 3. If you’ve already purchased FTL, you’ll be glad to know that the expansion won’t cost you a dime – upon release, all versions of FTL will be upgraded per the instructions of your digital vendor. FTL will also be released for the iPad on the same day for $10, matching the price of the PC version. According to the official blog post, the iPad version will be completely equivalent to the PC version, including all the content released to this point.
