Haarlem, The Netherlands – 03 April 2014 – Returning from a triumphant Game Developers Conference 2014, in sunny San Francisco, the Amplitude Studios team is back in Paris to reveal the 3rd faction in their upcoming 4x fantasy title Endless Legend. Make your acquaintance with the ‘Broken Lords’ in the all-new reveal video, showing this intriguing new faction inhabiting Auriga.
About the Broken Lords
“The Broken Lords are a faction of knights and town-builders; an aristocratic society that believes in honor, virtue, and justice. To succor the weak, to champion what is just, to root out evil wherever it may lurk - those are the ideals by which these noble warriors would live.
And yet, the Broken Lords are a crippled people that exist only as spirits wrapped in their great suits of Dust-enhanced armor. Other nations view them as monsters, for their race was fading when it discovered a deadly secret - that by consuming the life force of a sentient being they could extend their own life span. This rite of consumption is, obviously, a complete betrayal of their principles and their history. The greatest hope of the Broken Lords, therefore, is to develop magic that will break this curse and allow them to live without destroying others.
Though the question remains, and haunts their thoughts: Even if they did find a cure, would they want to give up this powerful gift? Their codes and morality insist 'yes', but in their hearts it is much less clear...”
Endless Legend will soon be coming to Steam’s Early Access program. More info on the game can already be found on the official website: www.amplitude-studios.com/Articles/OUR-NEXT-4X-GAME.
Story of Endless Legend:
Another sunrise, another day of toil. Food must be grown, industries built, science and magic advanced, and wealth collected. Urgency drives these simple efforts, however, for your planet holds a history of unexplained apocalypse, and the winter you just survived was the worst on record. A fact that has also been true for the previous five.
As you discover the lost secrets of your world and the mysteries of the legends and ruins that exist as much in reality as in rumor, you will come to see that you are not alone. Other peoples also struggle to survive, to grow, and perhaps even to conquer.
You have a city, a loyal populace, and a few troops; your power and magic should be sufficient to keep them alive. But beyond that, nothing is certain… Where will you go, what will you find, and how will you react? Will your trail be one of roses, or of blood?
Key Features in Endless Legend:
Explore legendary lands with one of the eight civilizations available both in single and multiplayer, adventure through seasons, and strive to discover the secrets of Auriga.
Expand beyond the unknown and send your heroes in every corner of the world to find mysterious artefacts to equip your troops, and assimilate powerful minor factions which will help overwhelm opponents.
Exploit every opportunity by researching new technologies and magical powers while collecting Dust, luxuries, and strategic resources tradable on the marketplace.
Exterminate fools who defy you with a genuine combat system where terrain and your unit abilities are key to take the advantage over the enemy armies.
