Haarlem, The Netherlands - August 21st, 2014 – With press previews popping up after showing their upcoming 4x fantasy strategy title Endless Legend on Gamescom last week, Amplitude Studios today reveals the game’s seventh faction the ‘Drakken’ with a beautiful intro video, faction card and screenshots.
The ‘Drakken’ Background:
An ancient and venerable race, the drakes and dragons of the Drakken prize lore, history, and wisdom above all things. Few in number but exceedingly powerful, they do not seek war but rather relationships, information, and knowledge. Faction histories, artifacts, and ruins are highly prized by the Drakken while wealth, military power, and advanced technology are viewed as insignificant.
Endless Legend is currently in Beta and can already be purchased via Steam’s Early Access program http://store.steampowered.com/app/289130/ . For more info on Endless Legend please visit Amplitude’s official website: www.endless-legend.com.
About 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 rumour, 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? Create your own Legend!
