AMPLITUDE STUDIOS DELVES DEEPER INTO SPACE WITH NEW 4X PC TITLE ENDLESS LEGEND

Iceberg Interactive and Amplitude Studios Team up Again to Publish Endless Legend

Haarlem, The Netherlands – August 21, 2013 – Iceberg Interactive and indie developer Amplitude Studios have teamed up to bring gamers Amplitude's largest scale project to date, the new 4X space-strategy game, Endless Legend. Players will explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate using a hero from one of eight civilizations as they uncover mysterious artifacts, assimilate factions, research magic and tech, and engage in full combat in their quest to dominate the universe. 

Developer Amplitude Studios created an exclusive screenshot batch, giving fans of the genre and its community some first glances into the world of Endless Legend. Download the full screenshot batch HERE, http://www.iceberg-games.com/games/EndlessLegend/Endless_Legend_Town_View_Screens.zip

 “Creating a fantasy 4X game was a dream for all of us at Amplitude. The success of Endless Space and the support of our community have allowed to make this dream come true,” said Mathieu Girard, CEO of Amplitude Studios. “With respect toward great games released before us, we intend to set a new benchmark in creating a rich, immersive, thrilling, and accessible 4X strategy game in a new fantasy setting.”

“4X strategy remains a key genre for us, whether set in a sci-fi or fantasy setting," said Erik Schreuder, CEO at Iceberg Interactive. "We’re very excited to continue our co-operation with Amplitude Studios and are certain that Endless Legend will be another flagship title, when it releases in 2014.”

Key Features:

  • Explore legendary lands with one of the eight civilizations available both in single and multiplayer, as you adventure through seasons, striving to discover the secrets of Auriga.
  • Expand beyond the unknown and send your heroes in every corner of the world to find mysterious artifacts to equip your troops, and assimilate powerful minor factions which will help you overwhelm your opponents.
  • Exploit every opportunity by researching new technologies and magical powers while collecting Dust, luxuries and strategic resources tradable on the marketplace.
  • Exterminate fools who defy you with a genuine combat system where terrain and your unit abilities are key to take the advantage over the enemy armies.

Story of Endless Legend:

Another sunrise, another day of toil. Food must be grown, industries built, science and magic advanced, and wealth collected. Urgency drives these simple efforts, however, for your planet holds a history of unexplained apocalypse, and the winter you just survived was the worst on record. A fact that has also been true for the previous five.

As you discover the lost secrets of your world and the mysteries of the legends and ruins that exist as much in reality as in rumor, you will come to see that you are not alone. Other peoples also struggle to survive, to grow, and perhaps even to conquer.

You have a city, a loyal populace, and a few troops; your power and magic should be sufficient to keep them alive. But beyond that, nothing is certain… Where will you go, what will you find, and how will you react? Will your trail be one of roses, or of blood?

Endless Legend follows Endless Space, Amplitude's first big splash as a studio and in the 4X genre. Endless Space launched on Steam for PC and Mac in July 2012 and sold around half a million units in its first year, while garnering critical acclaim, marking an excellent debut for the Paris outfit. Since the 2012 release, the studio has not only worked on expanding Endless Space with 4 free add-ons and an official expansion, but has also worked behind closed doors on new games set within the ‘Endless’ universe – the recently announced Dungeon of the Endless and in particular, their largest scale project to date: the 4x fantasy strategy game Endless Legend.

As was the case with Endless Space, Iceberg Interactive will fulfill the publisher role for the game, taking care of all sales channels (both retail and digital) except Steam (which Amplitude handles) and assisting with PR & Marketing. Endless Legend is currently in development and is slotted for a Spring 2014 release.Follow Endless Legend’s development via its official website and blog on amplitude-studios.com/.
