Hold on to your butts, because Endless Legend is leaving Steam Early Access next week and launching on September 18th.
Amplitude Studios, the developer behind the Endless Space 4X space-strategy game, is ready to unleash their spin on fantasy strategy in Endless Legend. The game is actually set in the same universe as Endless Space and features the ability to influence and develop a unique civilization from eight original factions. Players can expect to tackle lengthy single player campaigns or brutalize up to eight of their friends in online multiplayer at launch.
I’ve been really excited to see what Endless Legend has to offer in its complete package, as its departure from historical maps and human civilizations that you can play in games like Crusader Kings 2 or Civilization V has been a well needed breath of fresh air in the genre. Honestly, I’ve lacked a truly great fantasy turn-based strategy game since the release of Fire Emblem: Awakening and I can’t even remember the last great fantasy 4X game that I’ve played. The gorgeous art, the ability to utilize hero units and eight different victory conditions really has me hoping that this strategy game has just the right mix of ingredients to spice things up for me this fall.
You can buy into the Endless Legend Early Access right now on Steam for $31.49 before the price goes up to $34.99 next week.
