NEW YORK - January 9th 2009 - Paradox Interactive have today released the third in a continuing series of Elven Legacy developer diary entries.
The entry, written by Max Bodrikov, the Elven Legacy Lead Game Designer from Ino-Co, explains the RPG-like elements featured in the upcoming PC strategy title.
Max writes,“Although Elven Legacy is a turn-based war game, it has many features of an RPG. One of the most visible of these features is the ability to level up. Each unit, even the shabbiest, gains experience and will eventually level up. With each level, the military characteristics of the unit grow. And what’s most important is that you can choose one of three new perks for each unit. Perks give units special abilities, allowing you to adjust your men for a specific combat task. You can also increase the unit’s main abilities. For example, you improve some royal knights by giving them the Heavy Lances perk. Or you can change the designation of a unit by giving, for example, a Forest Rage perk to a battle deer, which is usually strong on plains.”
