NEW YORK– November 17 2009– The epic saga continues! Prepare for battle as Paradox Interactive gets set to brandish the second explosive expansion pack in the Elven Legacy Trilogy, Elven Legacy: Siege, releasing on today on November 17th.

Several months have passed since the events of Elven Legacy: Ranger, outcast elves under the leadership of the elven Lord Saggitel, have once more acted provocatively and dared to cross in to the realm of man, but the human armies are ready and waiting. Inciting the wrath of the fearsome knight of the Holy Inquisition, along with the agent of New Tixus the ranger Cornelius, Saggitel is now the target of retribution. How far can Saggitel run before they catch up to him?

Stand in battle with a mighty army behind you and withstand mighty sieges in your quest for survival and victory. The ancient impregnable fortresses of the dwarves, the enchanted cities of the elves, and the historic capital cities of Eolia, each will become the sites of conflicts which will go down in the annals ofhistory!

Key Features:

• 19 new campaign missions

• The outcome of mission quests will directly impact subsequent missions

• Two different armies and three new heroes

• Bonus mission (becomes available after Gold ranked victories)
