Espionage Expansion: Endless Legend Shadows Out Now

Adding a new faction to Endless Legend [official site] must have been a daunting task. Amplitude's 4x masterpiece is built around the concept of highly individual playstyles and rulesets for each of its factions and if the newcomers didn't live up to what had come before, they'd look terribly out of place. That's why the just-released Shadows expansion doesn't stop at adding a new faction,…

Endless Space 2 Announced, First Trailer Released

Endless Space was a fine 4X strategy game with interesting, distinct races and a best-in-class interface. Then Amplitude Studios' follow-up was Endless Legend, a fantasy 4X game set within the same universe which was best-in-class in general. In fact, we named it the best game of 2014. So pardon my excitement for the news that Amplitude are now making Endless Space 2 [official site] and…

Espionage Expansion: Endless Legend – Shadows

Every faction in Endless Legend [official site] feels like it required as much playtesting and balancing as some entire strategy games. There are eight major factions in all, from the Necrophages, who devour those they meet rather than engaging in diplomacy, to the Cultists of the Eternal End who cannot create new settlements of their own but can convert those that they conquer. Amplitude have…

A Giant Expansion: Endless Legend – Guardians

Endless Legend's [official site] Guardian's DLC is a giant expansion in that it's an expansion that adds giants, although that's not to say there isn't a large bundle of new things to play with. The first major expansion to our Game of 2014 adds new global events, cooperative and competitive quests, legendary deeds and buildings, unique structures, and the titular Guardians. That's one of the…

Endless Legend Free On Steam This Weekend

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.…

Worlds Of Magic review

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

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…

The Time Thief: A Game For All Seasons

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…

The Bestest Best 4X Of 2014: Endless Legend

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

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

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…

Endless Legend More Endless With Modding Tools

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.

Endless Legend review

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,…

Endless Legend’s Early Access Not Endless, Ends Soon

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…

The Lighthouse Customer: Endless Legend

Each Monday, Chris Livingston visits an early access game and reports back with stories about whatever he finds inside. This week, monster-based monster strategy with monsters in Endless Legend. Crystalline giants march from the east, painted ogres advance from the south, and slithering snake-monsters, a two-headed jackal tribe, and hovering spectral warriors in tattered cloaks appear regularly outside my city. I've been battling monsters for…

Endless Endlessness Pt 2: Dungeon Of The Endless

The endless endlessness, it never ends! In the beginning, there was Endless Space, and it was endlessly space-y. Recently, we also told you of Endless Legend, which is another 4X strategy set in the same universe, only all fantasy-fied. But let's not forget about Dungeon of the Endless, which Amplitude teased shortly before getting sucked into the time-distorting, endlessly cacophonous Gamescom hypehole. At that point,…

Endless Endlessness Pt 1: Endless Legend

Welcome. Welcome to the beginning of endless endlessness. Well, OK, I suppose the endless nature of this endlessness technically started with Endless Space, Amplitude's rock-solid, ox-strong 4X space strategy. Now, however, the developer with Xs for eyes (they're not unconscious; their eyes are literally the letter X) is headed in a markedly different direction with Endless Legend, a 4X fantasy about magic, discovery, and an…
