Triple Elven Legacy Expansions

By Jim Rossignol on September 29th, 2009.


A cryptic triptych of expansions has been announced for Paradox’s shiny fantasy strategy, Elven Legacy. Cleverly, they’ll be known as “the Elven Legacy Trilogy” and be released over the coming three months. They will cost $10 each via digital download magicks. Ranger, the first expansion, is due on October 20th and will feature 16 new campaign missions. Siege follows on November 17th and will contain 19 new campaign missions, and the arc concludes on December 1st with comprise of 15 new mission campaigns. They all include new items for hero characters, new units, and all that jazz. Seems like a bit of an expansion overload to me. Can there possibly be that much demand for more strategic fantasy happenings?

Pointy-Ears And Click Interface: Elven Legacy Demo

By Kieron Gillen on April 23rd, 2009.

Look at them. Elves! Lined up with their shiny armour and pointy ears and their implicit fascism. I hate them! I hate them all!

Ino-co are currently at work on finishing Majesty 2, but it’s not all they’ve been up to. They’ve released a sequel to the generically-named yet lovely turn-based strategy game Fantasy Wars. And now they’ve only gone and released a bally 700Mb demo, containing the tutorial and the first campaign mission. And you can get it from here. Or even here. Or here. I had a play of some Beta code a few months ago, and it doesn’t seem to have lost any of the Fantasy Battle charm, despite the fact it’s about Elves. I hate Elves. If it takes your fancy, you can buy here. And you’ll find an official game-o-play video and a user-made game-o-play video below…

“Hot Hot Hex”: Elven Legacy

By Jim Rossignol on November 20th, 2008.


Ino Co’s latest strategy game, Elven Legacy, (previous was the honestly named Fantasy Wars) is a mighty purdy lookin’ turn-based affair which, as you might have been able to deduce from its name, features elves: “A rogue human has discovered the treasured secrets of the elven race and for the first time in centuries, elves are forced to enter the world of man in order to protect this sacred information.” And that means hot, turn-based action. Ino Co are keen to emphasize that the game not only features dozens of different unit types, but that there’s also a complex MMO-style character editor for the creation of unique fantasy heroes. After the excellence of King’s Bounty this year, we’d be hard pressed to dismiss this. We’ll be able to take a look at it in Q1 of next year. Trailer after the jump.

Paradox’s International Elf Service

By Kieron Gillen on August 18th, 2008.

I kept on meaning to go back to Russian developer Ino-Co’s spectacularly derivatively named Fantasy Wars, but i didn’t get any further than the demo. Tim Stone liked it though. But Paradox appear to be offering a second bite – they’ve announced they’ll be selling Elven Legacy from the same company, which is clearly an updated spanglified a-slightly-better-name Fantasy Wars. I caught the notice over at Strategy Informer, but I also noticed that they hadn’t lobbed up a load of the press shots. So I did. Like so:
