The popular Warcraft 3 mod Legion TD returns as a standalone sequel 12 years later
The first time I followed Legion TD 2 was in 2016, when the developers launched a Kickstarter campaign to support its development. But its history is much more than that-until the Warcraft 3 module “Revised Legion” released in 2009.The development of the independent successor started in 2014, the first experience to follow the successful Kickstarter campaign, and finally released on October 1st. steam.
Legion TD 2 is a tower defense game with MOBA elements that supports single player and cooperative battles and 2v2 and 4v4 matchmaking. The basics are simple-build an army, defend your king, and destroy the enemy-but a variety of unique factions and fighters provide huge offensive and defensive possibilities.
“Some fighters ensured your strategic advantage in the early games,” the Steam page says. “Others promoted strong late game synergy.”
“As an independent team of 4, we are very grateful to all of you,” the four-person developer AutoAttack Games stated in annouce“During the past 7 years and 10 months of development, we have devoted all our efforts to Legion TD 2. For those who have been around since Early Access, you have been helping to make Legion TD 2 what it is today . This is the first experience of a dream come true” from the Warcraft 3 module to Kickstarter to the full release. We hope you enjoy this game as much as we do. “
in a Reddit AMA, Project leader Brent “Lisk” Batas said that the developers plan to continue working after the game is released, updating and improving new content and gameplay. He also emphasized the gap between “Legion TD 2” and “Warcraft 3” mod days, describing it as “more interesting learning.”
“There is a tutorial, a cooperative event, 5 layers of AI, weekly challenge mode, sandbox mode, and better user interfaces such as recommended value,” Lisk wrote. “There is also an in-game coach (think Clippy from Microsoft Office) that will give you tips based on how you play. If it helps, then the number one player in Season 7 (earlier this year) Start the game that season.”
