Meet Endless Legend’s Broken Lords in the game’s latest faction reveal

4x strategy title Endless Legend is already pretty interesting, but the Broken Lords might be one of the coolest factions I’ve ever seen in any fantasy title.

Following the previous faction reveals of the Vaulters and the Wild Walkers, the Broken Lords are a faction of knights and town-builders; an aristocratic society that believes in honor, virtue, and justice. To succor the weak, to champion what is just, to root out evil wherever it may lurk – those are the ideals by which these noble warriors would live.

And yet, the Broken Lords are a crippled people that exist only as spirits wrapped in their great suits of Dust-enhanced armor. Other nations view them as monsters, for their race was fading when it discovered a deadly secret – that by consuming the life force of a sentient being they could extend their own life span. This rite of consumption is, obviously, a complete betrayal of their principles and their history. The greatest hope of the Broken Lords, therefore, is to develop magic that will break this curse and allow them to live without destroying others.

Though the question remains, and haunts their thoughts: Even if they did find a cure, would they want to give up this powerful gift? Their codes and morality insist ‘yes’, but in their hearts it is much less clear…

So basically an alliance of heroes that has to turn to what’s perceived as evil just to live. That’s just cool. Although there isn’t a ton of info yet on the game, there’s already a lot that’s looking pretty awesome about Endless Legend. Coming out of Amplitude Studios and published by Iceberg Interactive, Endless Legend is a turn-based 4x strategy title that takes place in a dark fantasy universe. It also looks like it encompasses quite a few different ideas with the Broken Lords being joined by the nature-centric Wild Walkers and the technological Vaulters. It’s a miss-mash of ideas that looks pretty neat so far.

From those races that have been announced so far (there’ll be a total of 8), it’s looking like Endless Legend might bring a fair deal of new ideas to the table too, which is something that the genre could definitely use. Endless Legend should be available on Steam Early Access some time very soon and you can get a ton more info about the game here on the official site.
