Amplitude Studios have just announced that they'll be closing shop for the next 10 days, as they head early into their annual summer break. This, however, they decided to do with a little more pizzaz than most would choose to, as they not only noted that they've got two unannounced projects being tested in closed beta (both coming along nicely), but that there's also yet another Endless Legend expansion in the works!
Titled Endless Legend: Inferno, there is literally nothing known about this expansion at all, but it's exciting news to be sure!
Where most of the playerbase assumed that development was done and done when it comes to Endless Legend, Amplitude have decided to throw the nicest possible wrench in these machinations with something altogether new and unknown.
If their previous expansions for this much-touted 4X are anything to go by, we should expect more factions, more units, more mechanics and something game-changing to boot. It's hard to guess from no information at all, but Amplitude's track record is a very interesting thing.
The last big expansion, for example - Tempest - added the Morgawr, an ocean-faring race who seek to dominate and control the landscape and their enemies in a more literal sense than one might imagine. Alongside this came the Naval Warfare expansion, naturally, as well as a whole new weather system and a new minor faction, the Fomorians.
Will this mark the final expansion for Endless Legend? If not, that's great, but if yes, perhaps Amplitude aim to end this game's development cycle with a bang.
No way to be sure until we've got Endless Legend: Inferno in our paws.
