Paradox Interactive Reveals New Elven Legacy Screens

NEW YORK - Nov. 6, 2008

Paradox Interactive today released new screenshots of their eagerly anticipated fantasy title Elven Legacy, an epic turn-based strategy game that pits elf against human. In Elven Legacy, a rogue human has discovered the treasured secrets of the elven race and for the first time in centuries, elves are forced to enter the world of man in order to protect this sacred information.

Elven Legacy offers separate human and elf campaigns. Each campaign has its own unique storyline and missions for players to explore, and the choices they make directly influence the game’s multiple endings.

The battle system in Elven Legacy features five distinct commanding heroes and over one hundred military units. Multiplayer combat takes place across 16 scenarios, and players can choose between five factions to swear their allegiance to. Elven Legacy features in-depth customization, and players can take advantage of the advanced character editor built into the game.

“We wanted the rich storyline of Elven Legacy to be enhanced by the choices that players make,” said Max Bodrikovof of Ino-Co, Elven Legacy’s development studio.“Whether elf or human, players can form alliances and use tactics that can alter the course of the game.”

Elven Legacy will be released in Q1 of 2009 and will be available in stores and online through GamersGate.
