Endless Legend is Amplitude Studios’ land-based take on the 4X fantasy-strategy genre. Replete with stunning graphics and design advances, the dynamic French studios’ strides have improved everything ranging from AI, combat, diplomacy, UI and tech tree progression, while imagining a seamless blend of fantasy gameplay in the science fiction-style Endless universe. Endless Legend offers players the chance to develop a totally different fantasy civilization through seamless turn-based combat on the dying planet of Auriga. Players will have the ability to pick one of eight beautifully crafted factions, thrust heroes into tactical battles and strategically exploit the map terrain, develop technological and political power, and conquer the planet through diplomatic or military means.
Dungeon of the Endless offers a unique blend of rogue-like toughness, RPG-light building options, and dungeon-defense strategies – all blended into a totally new game experience. Presented with a retro 2D look using modern 3D graphics and lighting, Dungeon of the Endless enables players to equip a team in single-player, or up to four people in cooperative multiplayer, to gather resources, construct defenses, and explore an infinite number of dungeons in an effort to reach the planet’s surface. Dungeon of the Endless is currently on PC and iPad.
Known for its deep, engaging, and gorgeous 4X strategy games, Amplitude Studios won the venerable 2013 Golden Cube and Community Choice Unity Awards for Endless Space and recently released the 4X fantasy-based game Endless Legend.
