Endless Legend: Tempest Available Next Week

Endless Legend is another success story from Amplitude Studios, and perhaps the best fantasy 4X there is. The Tempest Expansion adds naval mechanics and units for every faction to this already deep and engrossing game. It also adds a new major faction: The Morgawr, who seem to be based around advantages on the ocean, but their exact details are not clear yet.

If you’ve played Endless Legend you don’t need me to tell you how exciting a new faction and new mechanics will be. If, like me, you haven’t found time to indulge in this modern classic of a 4X yet, then I can only tell you what I keep hearing from everyone else: Endless Legend has taken an innovative and distinct approach to the genre, and it paid off.

Official Press Release

Paris, France – October 4, 2016 – Amplitude Studios announced today that Endless Legend: Tempest, the newest expansion for its award-winning 4X strategy game, will be available on Steam, Friday, October 14. The sea-faring expansion, featuring the new Morgawr major faction that specializes in naval warfare, will be available for pre-order on Thursday, October 6 for €12.99/£9,99 with a 25% discount.

Endless Legend’s most ambitious update bristles with new sea battle scenarios and a new Fomorian minor faction, a new unpredictable and treacherous weather system, enigmatic Sea Monsters to contend with, and a lot more.

Key Features in Tempest include:

  • New Major Faction – The Morgawr: Locked in the depths of Auriga by the Endless due to their uncontrollable power, the demonic Morgawr are finally free… This new faction will focus on controlling the seas and spreading chaos on the lands thanks to mind control powers and the “Black Spot” curse cast on their enemies.
  • Naval Warfare: Players will finally be able to battle on the seas. All seaborne units can instigate and reinforce sea battles. Exotic mechanics and tile effects spice up this new type of battle.
  • Ocean Control with Weather System: Arcane structures have emerged from beneath the waves: these Endless relics provide strategic and luxury resources as well as other bonuses to the empire able to control them. To do so, their mysterious guardians must be parlayed with or defeated in battle. The same guardians will patrol “wild” ocean regions, making them a lot less safe to cross without convoy. Expect clouds, rain and storms to appear on your map.
  • Sea Fortresses and New Minor Faction – Fomorians: Newly generated ocean regions, including a Sea Fortress, offer strategic locations in the water for players to battle it out. Anywhere from zero to three fortresses are located in each ocean region, so expect more in oceans that are more strategically pivotal, between islands or continents.
