The Advanced Edition update for the fantastic FTL: Faster Than Light is now available as a free download on PC.

Users who own the game on Steam should get the update beamed automatically onto their hard drives using Gaben's special magic powers, and the game's developers have created a page with instructions for those who purchased the game from another outlet.

The free Advanced Edition adds mind control and hacking systems, a new sector, and events written by author Tom Jubert and Fallout: New Vegas scribe Chris Avellone, alongside new weapons, effects, layouts, and environments. The update will also add tweaks to the whole game, including the option to save and quit during combat.

Meanwhile, FTL has now been released for the iPad. The game costs $10 and runs on an iPad 2 or newer, and comes with the Advanced Edition by default.
