Take to the seas in ‘Endless Legend: Tempest’ – Coming to steam October 14
Critically-acclaimed developer 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 Morgawr major faction that specializes in naval warfare, can be pre-ordered on Thursday, October 6 for $9.75, a 25% discount off the $12.99 retail price. 4X fans will delight in Amplitude’s most ambitious update which bristles with sea battle scenarios and a new Fomorian minor faction, an 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 land, thanks to mind control powers and the “Black Spot” curse cast on their enemies.
- Naval Warfare: Naval battles for everyone! 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 Systems: 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 Minor Faction Fomorians: New 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.
Endless Legend Tempest will be available on Steam Friday, October 14. If you are interested in reviewing Endless Legend Tempest please email Danitra Alomia (firstname.lastname@example.org).
