Endless Legend Free On Steam This Weekend

By Graham Smith on April 17th, 2015.

Endless Legend [official site] is the Bestest Best Game Of 2014 says we, but it’s possible that you still haven’t found time or money to sink yourself into the clever, fantasy, 4X strategy game. Good news, then! The game is free this weekend on Steam, from now until the end of Sunday. That seems like long enough to see whether its hexagons are for you.

Alternatively, its cousin Dungeon of the Endless [official site] is also free for the same period.

Wot I Think: Worlds Of Magic

By Alec Meer on March 25th, 2015.

I do like the big beetles, though

Given how spoilt for choice we are for fantasy strategy/roleplaying games, opting for Worlds of Magic [official site] over an Age of Wonders III or Endless Legend feels a bit like choosing to take home the one-eyed, geriatric dog with bladder problems instead of one of the cute puppies at the pound.

No Small Feat: Endless Legend’s Third Free Update

By Adam Smith on March 19th, 2015.

The third free mini-expansion for Endless Legend [official site] adds a new minor faction, an extended endgame and enhanced modding tools. There’s more, and I’ll list everything below, but those are the three stand-out features. I’m always glad to see fresh content in the form of factions and the modding tools include an AI debugger, which could lead to some interesting experimentation.

It’s the new victory quest that really grabbed my attention though. The title of the update is Look To The Stars, in reference to a faction-wide final quest that allows the victor to repair a spaceship and leave the doomed planet behind. The Endless trilogy just pulled all of its threads a little tighter.

The Time Thief: A Game For All Seasons

By Adam Smith on December 21st, 2014.

This year has been unusual for me, gaming-wise, because I haven’t had That One Game. You know the one – the game that keeps you up at night while also managing to occupy your coffee breaks. The one that you can play while you’re listening to the new Flying Lotus album just as easily as you can play while Corrie’s on. It can take up all of your attention or the slightest part, filling whatever part of your mind you commit to it at any one time. I miss That Game.

The Bestest Best 4X Of 2014: Endless Legend

By RPS on December 8th, 2014.

Amplitude have released two games this year and either one would be deserving of a place in this bestest best December round-up. Dungeon of the Endless can slumber on in cryosleep for now though because it’s time to sing the praises of Endless Legend, the finest 4X game of recent times.

Adam: Science fiction, fantastic factions.

Free Add-Ons Out For Endless’s Legend And Space

By Graham Smith on November 27th, 2014.

Adam reported on Endless Legend‘s free add-on Visions of the Unseen last week, but now it’s out, we know the details of what it contains, and it comes alongside a smaller but similarly free add-on for Amplitudes previous 4X strategy game, Endless Space. Visions of the Unseen? More like posts of the seen, right?

Right.

No End In Sight: Endless Legend Free Expansion

By Adam Smith on November 19th, 2014.

Amplitude are having a very good year. The studio’s debut release, Endless Space, was a good 4X game but the follow-up, Endless Legend, is a great 4X game. I’m fairly sure there hasn’t been a better release in the genre this year. Along with that, there’s Dungeon of the Endless, a smart cocktail that contains a dash of roguelike, a splash of tower defence and several fingers of cunning twists.

Endless Legend, as you might expect given the name, isn’t quite done yet. A second free add-on has just been announced. It’s called Visions of the Unseen and the first details are below.

Endless Legend More Endless With Modding Tools

By Graham Smith on October 29th, 2014.

Endless Legend isn’t quite as big a misnomer as the Neverending Story, but it still seemed likely that you’d eventually grow tired of playing campaigns in the inventive 4X strategy game. Today’s announcement may yet stave of the cartoon lawyers, as modding tools are coming which will let you create and tweak factions, skills, items and damn near everything else.

Wot I Think: Endless Legend

By Adam Smith on October 1st, 2014.

A cursory glance might lead you to believe that Endless Legend is a duck. In this instance, Civilization V is the Platonic ideal of the duck and that brief glimpse of Endless Legend shaking its tailfeather might be enough to convince you that it looks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck. Closer investigation reveals something altogether different though. Sure, it has feathers and you’re likely to find it paddling around and flashing its bum at the world while it grabs something to eat, but Endless Legend might be best thought of as a swan in a pond full of ducks.

Either that or it’s Howard the Duck. Here’s wot I think.

Endless Legend’s Early Access Not Endless, Ends Soon

By Ben Barrett on September 11th, 2014.

DRAGONS? I wanna play these guys.

The three-game Endless universe and its interconnecting lore is one of my favourite games-related tidbits right now. Amplitude Studios’ two in-development games, Endless Legend–a fantastical grand strategy–and Dungeon of the Endless–a roguelike dungeon crawling/tower defense–are both prequels to Endless Space. It all ties together wonderfully, with monsters from Dungeon being minor races in Legend, some of whom have become playable factions by Space. While Dungeon is still wandering the halls of Early Access, Legend is launching onto Steam proper on September 18th.
