Endless Legend trailer marks launch and addition of the horrifying Cultists of the Eternal End

endless legend trailer launch amplitude

Unlike other strategy games where the different armies are largely similar but with a different skinjob and a few unique units, Endless Legend’s armies are fundamentally different at the core. The final army to be added to the Early Access turn-based strategy game is like no other. The Cultists of the Eternal End want one thing: to see their world destroyed. They don’t want to capture territories, they don’t want to increase the resources they can gain from their land, they can’t even build new cities.

With the release of Endless Legend we get an army that plays like no other.

The Cultists are abominations, failed experiments by the Endless, the ancient race that ruled their world, Auriga. They follow a queen created in a lab experiment and who is trapped in a malformed body. She formed her cult to wipe all trace of the Endless from the planet.

However, she doesn’t want to create more abominations to reach her task so you’re unable to propagate. Instead, you have a single temple city at the start of the game and must capture nearby minor faction villages. Those villages then make offerings of resources to your temple and begin spilling out troops to attack other villages – spreading the word of the cult.

You can see them at work in this faction trailer:

They were the last addition to Endless Legend before launch, so the game is finally out of Early Access. And with that there’s a new trailer:
