Legendary Heroes, developer Stardock Entertainment’s first expansion for strategy game Elemental: Fallen Enchantress, promises new monsters and champions, larger maps, new tactical battle maps, new quests, and gameplay additions.  

“One of our goals with Legendary Heroes is to tie together the destiny of your kingdom and those of your champions,” says Derek Paxton, lead designer of Legendary Heroes.

Paxton explains how champions are no longer recruited through exploration, but will seek out players.  

“In Legendary Heroes, the champions seek you out based on your fame,” says Paxton. “Your kingdom gains fame through a variety of means and as a result, the player’s affinity with champions is now tied to the choices their kingdom as a whole makes.”

Legendary Heroes has a tentative release scheduled for April, with a public beta starting in March. To find out more about the game, read our review.
