Endless Legend, the fantasy 4X title from Amplitude Studios, will be getting a new expansion focused on naval warfare, the developer today announced. The expansion will include new units, undersea relics, weather effects that alter sailing conditions, new oceanic regions, and a new major faction.
The Morgawr faction is specialized in oceanic combat, and skilled at manipulating other races. A new minor faction, the Fomorians, will challenge players amid Sea Fortresses in the new ocean regions. Each sea region can contain a handful of fortresses, so expect to fight hard to take over strategically important holdings.
You’ll also find arcane structures below the waves, with new Endless relics providing luxury and strategic resources to the factions able to take control of them. That will be made even more difficult by the new weather system, ensuring that naval fleets will have to contend with natural storms just as much as enemy vessels.
No word yet on the release date for the Tempest expansion, but details on the closed beta are expected soon.
