Today, Stardock has opened access to the Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes beta. Legendary Heroes is Stardock’s PC standalone expansion to the fantasy turn-based 4X strategy game Elemental: Fallen Enchantress.
So, as this is a standalone expansion, it includes all the Fallen Enchantress content. Beta access is available as of today for the price of $39.99/€29.99, with the official release planned for May 2013. There doesn’t seem to be a discount available for people who pre-order now.
Owners of Fallen Enchantress can upgrade for $19.99/€14.99. And, if you purchased Elemental: War of Magic from Stardock prior to November 2010, you should receive a free copy of this expansion.
Legendary Heroes expansion features:
- Gain champions through fame: Champions are no longer randomly found; they seek you according to your fame;
- New leveling system: Your sovereign and champions now evolve through a skill tree which allows you to pre-plan your hero;
- New tactical battle maps: Battles now have far more special skills available and initiative is more important. There’s also new combat mechanics to increase strategic options;
- New monsters: Liches and their skeletal minions, banshees and the dreaded Garagoxi;
- More magic: New spells like “Wall of Fire” and “Raise Horde” add new options to battle;
- Larger maps: A new gigantic sized map;
- Updated Graphics Engine: New visuals while improving performance on older machines.
