Infected, what is the purpose?

Post by mantra » Tue Sep 22, 2015 3:21 pm

seems to me there is no way to "cleanse" an infected system?

all they do is reduce the number of systems we could explore?

To scare those trapped in the galaxy, stuck with a inescapable monster slowly consuming what little room they have.

It would be safe to assume that "the Infected" are an integral part of the main story line that will be fleshed out as the game progresses.

my theory is that the Infected, is some sort of after effect from a weapon or something that was used during the Old war, similar to the effect after the use of the Nuclear bomb, in World war II, though much worse.

Old War? Is this canon? It sounds cool and I'd really like to know where I can learn more. In-game I've only noticed vague references to the isolation of the galaxy and each of the faction so I just assumed any "story" hadn't been added in yet.

Can you link to it? The only dev logs I could find are the video ones and I don't feel like watching 50+ videos to find this bit of info.
