Paradox Interactive announce the
release of fantasy strategy game: Elven Legacy
Leading PC strategy publisher
Paradox Interactive today announced a new release for 2009. The Fantasy Strategy
game Elven Legacy is developed by experienced studio 1C:Ino-Co, and is
scheduled for Q1, 2009.
Elven Legacy delivers a world filled
with magic, and a thrilling nonlinear storyline, gauged to provide many hours of
gameplay for strategy enthusiasts. Through an epic quest to restore the former
glory of the Elven race, this fantasy strategy game offers both depth and scope,
all in colorful and inspirational settings.
Play as an elf or a human, in the
two primary campaigns – or why not the Orcs, in a wide variety of bonus
missions? With the accompanying tools, players may also create their own
missions and campaigns, and share them through multiplayer.
"This is one of the best-looking TBS
games I’ve seen in a long time, and it follows in the same spirit of games like
Heroes of Might and Magic, Master of Magic, and Warlords Battlecry", said
Paradox Interactive Executive Vice President Fredrik Wester. "The developers
have really taken care to provide extensive depth and content, which could make
this game one of those that stays on gamers hard drives for a long time".
1C:Ino-Co CEO Alexei Kozyrev said,
"In Elven Legacy, we’ve focused greatly on making the plot intriguing and
nonlinear. Our games are already known for their rich tactical opportunities,
which usually come highly rated by players. This, combined with our improvements
in the AI and interface, allows for this game to appeal both to fans of
turn-based strategies and to newcomers to the genre."
Elven Legacy is scheduled for
release during Q1, 2009.
