??We have poured our hearts and souls into making Endless Legend,?? said Romain De Waulbert, creative director, Amplitude Studios. ??And we believe gamers familiar with Endless Space will see we??ve listened to their feedback and will enjoy the totally new seasoned approach we??ve taken.??

??With Endless Legend, Amplitude Studios continues to prove why it is a talented and remarkable studio,?? said Erik Schreuder, CEO Iceberg Interactive. ??Endless Legend is an enormous game with a distinct art style and incredible replay value, as demonstrated even in the Steam Early Access version.??

Endless Legend is a turn-based 4X fantasy strategy game that takes place on the planet Auriga, a once-beautiful planet destroyed in a massive cataclysm. Players build their nations through tactical, military, and political means on randomly generated, hexagonal worlds of varying altitudes with the ultimate goal of developing the most powerful civilization on the planet. Gamers will encounter long harsh seasons, assimilate smaller factions into the mix to increase their chances in war, fight battles with a variety of powerful heroes, and create a robust economy using Dust (money), food, production, science, and more.

  • Single or Multiplayer: Endless Legend takes place in the Endless Universe and employs new twists on combat, pacing, events, environment and single- and multiplayer gaming for one to eight players.
  • Eight fantastic, unconventional factions ?? including the Vaulters, Broken Lords, and the Wild Walkers ?? create a distinct take on the over-used ??Tolkien-esque stereotypes.?? For the Alpha build, players can select three out of the eight factions and advance through the use of weaponry, technology, and other ??Endless?? elements, such as the Dust as per Endless Space.
  • Minor Factions: Of the 16 minor factions, 10 are currently available in the Alpha build for players to incorporate into their empire.
  • Research around 100 technologies across four eras through quests and research, while collecting Dust, luxuries, and strategic resources tradable at the marketplace.
  • Eight potential win scenarios for players experience through culture, trade and conquest. Example of a win: One enables your race to discover an ancient spaceship, leave the planet, and become and embryonic version of one of Endless Space??s galactic factions.
  • Endless Legend does away with skill trees with branching paths, instead enabling players to accumulate enough experience to advance to the next age without linear paths to follow.
  • Explore unknown territory by sending heroes into every corner of the world to find mysterious artifacts to equip troops.
