ICEBERG INTERACTIVE REVEALS FACTION #4 VIDEO “THE NECROPHAGES” FOR UPCOMING ENDLESS LEGEND
French developer Amplitude Studios revealed today the fourth faction in its video campaign for the highly anticipated 4X strategy game Endless Legend. Showcasing the insectoid menace known as the Necrophages, this asset package includes video, artwork, screens, and a faction card detailing the faction’s hideous characteristics. Currently on track for an Alpha release within weeks on Steam, Endless Legend (PC/Mac) is a fantasy-based strategy title that takes place in the same universe as Amplitude Studios’ award-winning Endless Space.
Who Are The Necrophages?
The Necrophages are a scuttling monstrosity polluting the surface of Auriga (the planet on which Endless Legend takes place); they are an insectoid menace that should be crushed under one’s heel like the mutated cockroaches that they are. Or so the Vaulters, the Wild Walkers, the Broken Lords, and every other nation on the planet would have one believe.
Naturally, the Necrophages themselves don’t share this view – in fact, they hold very few views other than fight, feed, and propagate. The Necrophages have found a niche in the environment that suits them very well: They win by numbers; by elevating the colony over the individual; by constant warfare.
Something between a hive insect and an undead horde, they reproduce by laying eggs in the bodies of fallen enemies. Occasionally the offspring even inherits elements of the host’s DNA, accelerating their process of change and adaptation. Emotionless, relentless, and driven by their biology, the Necrophages do not waste time with diplomacy and commerce.
