There’s a storm coming: Tempest expansion for Endless Legend out in two days

Despite its pivotal importance, the sea has often been neglected in strategy and 4x games, from units that turn into boats to a near-complete absence of any maritime mechanics . Endless Legend [Review] is receiving its fourth major expansion this weekend, six months after the release of Shifters, and with the aptly named Tempest DLC comes a new faction, naval warfare and other sea-related goodies.

Goblins of Elderstone [Kickstarter Page] recognizes their merit: a city tribe-builder where you govern over a clan of goblins in their task of consolidating their tribe and protecting themselves from the violence of those prejudicial towards them. Continue reading “All hail the Goblin King! Goblins of Elderstone is a tribe simulator on Kickstarter”

Battlerite is a MOBA minus the dull parts, and you should take a look at it

Battlerite [Official Site] is the latest indie hit to blindside the gaming community with its resounding success: 95% of the 5,825 reviews of it on Steam were positive, and there’s no denying the MOBA-lite has garnered quite the following in a short period of time. This is my lazy way of recommending a game without going through the effort of writing a review on it – consider it consequence of, erhm, it being in early access, I guess.

Europa Universalis IV [Official Site] has been around for quite a while – just a bit over three years – but its staying power as Paradox’s best-selling historical strategy game has not diminished, courtesy of eight content packs and frequent updates. Rights of Man [Official Site] was announced a month ago and has just received a long developer diary covering the expansion as a whole, four days away from its release.
