"Both FTL on iPad and the free FTL: Advanced Edition expansion will be released on April 3rd!" the developer tweeted.
The indie developers have been hinting at the iPad release of FTL for some time. The latest word was that it would come out "soon" on iPad, and Android and Windows 8 tablet releases might follow.
The Advanced Edition of the PC version is arriving as a free update to those who have the game, and it includes all the new features that iPad buyers are also getting. The game will be rife with new systems and tweaks when it arrives next week.
