Paris, France – September 2, 2015 – Critically-acclaimed indie developer Amplitude Studios announced today the next significant expansion for its award-winning 4X strategy game Endless Legend is available now on Steam. Endless Legend Shadows (store.steampowered.com/app/374500/) brings a brand new faction called “The Forgotten” and integrates a highly requested and anticipated feature with a new espionage system that gives players the chance to spy, infiltrate, pillage, and assassinate. Players can control invisible units using the new “Camouflage” and “Stealth” systems, defend themselves by utilizing counterespionage skills and the new “Detection” ability, and much more.
“Espionage is really something we were dreaming to do in Endless Legend for some time now,” sWe tackled the subject in a new way that will reinforce paranoia and bring players’ nerves on edge.” – Romain de Waubert de Genlis, Creative Director at Amplitude Studios.
Endless Legend Shadows is a nightmare out of history. The Forgotten are a faction that all others thought to be lost or dead. Against their will, they were forged into a tight society of violent and distrustful survivors, having spent the final years of the cataclysm alone on the surface of Auriga. Now, as rifts in their society have led a splinter faction to declare its independence, the Forgotten are risking everything in the hopes that the other factions will accept them – or kneel before them.
Endless Legend Shadows Features:
- Play the brand new major faction, “The Forgotten,” experts in the new espionage skills.
- Play with invisible units using the new “Camouflage” and “Stealth” capacities.
- Infiltrate an empire to steal, capture, sabotage, and assassinate!
- Pillage villages, extractors and watch towers to slow your enemy’s progression.
- Equip you heroes with “Scope” accessories to give them special espionage abilities.
- Defend yourself by using counterespionage skills and the new “Detection” capacity.
Endless Legend and the first expansion for the game Endless Legend Guardians are both 50% off on Steam. Endless Legend Shadows is available now on Steam for $12.99.
