Broken Lords, The Third Faction in Upcoming Fantasy Game: Endless Legend
Soon we will have Endless Legend on Steam Early Access, and a newly released third faction has made it’s debut, thanks to Amplitude Studios, the developers.
â€œThe Broken Lords are a faction of knights and town-builders; an aristocratic society that believes in honor, virtue, and justice. To succor the weak, to champion what is just, to root out evil wherever it may lurk – those are the ideals by which these noble warriors would live.Â
And yet, the Broken Lords are a crippled people that exist only as spirits wrapped in their great suits of Dust-enhanced armor. Other nations view them as monsters, for their race was fading when it discovered a deadly secret – that by consuming the life force of a sentient being they could extend their own life span. This rite of consumption is, obviously, a complete betrayal of their principles and their history.Â The greatest hope of the Broken Lords, therefore, is to develop magic that will break this curse and allow them to live without destroying others.Â
Though the question remains, and haunts their thoughts: Even if they did find a cure, would they want to give up this powerful gift? Their codes and morality insist ‘yes’, but in their hearts it is much less clear…â€
Key Features in Endless Legend:
- Explore legendary lands with one of the eight civilizations available both in single and multiplayer, adventure through seasons, and strive to discover the secrets of Auriga.
- Expand beyond the unknown and send your heroes in every corner of the world to find mysterious artefacts to equip your troops, and assimilate powerful minor factions which will help overwhelm opponents.
- Exploit every opportunity by researching new technologies and magical powers while collecting Dust, luxuries, and strategic resources trade-able 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.
To be honest I’m actually looking forward to this game. Normally I shy away from titles such as these, but this one seems promising. Turn based strategy, simulated horrible slaughter? Can I get behind it? Hell Yes.
