“The Beta update encapsulates several months of dedicated work that expands key gameplay components that add sophistication and depth to the game,” said Romain de Waubert, lead designer at Amplitude Studios.“The addition of two new factions provides players with new approaches and abilities through the game, and with improvements such as enhanced diplomacy and hireable privateers, gamers of all skill levels can now experience the depth, breadth, and complexity of our creation.”
“Amplitude Studios' huge strides with the Beta version of Endless Legend are imaginative and impressive,” said Erik Schreuder, CEO Iceberg Interactive. “The Alpha version was more solid and playable than most Alpha stage games on Steam, and this new Beta update fleshes out dozens of strategies and options while adding in huge quantities of content and depth. 4X gamers are going to love it.”
