In our Wizard of Legend review, we defined it as a great game where a lack of environmental and enemy variety prevented it from being truly astounding. We also mentioned that, luckily, that is the kind of problem that can be easily solved by post-launch content updates. What better opportunity to siphon some new lifeblood in a title than a full expansion? With its first expansion, Sky Palace, Contingent99 aims to revitalize Wizard of Legend with a plethora of new levels, enemies and, of course, weapons of mass destruction.
In the announcement video, we can see that the expansion will add to the game a number of new enemies, which will improve the lackluster enemy variety in the game. We will also see at least a couple of new environments included in this Sky Palace and a new member of the council of magic as a boss. Most importantly, the expansion will include new spells and signature that will increase exponentially the possible customization options for our arsenal, which is the real strength of the game. This fulfills stretch goals hit during the Kickstarter campaign with the new elemental region, enemies, relics, signatures and Magic Council member.
What is sure is that the Sky Palace will contribute to mitigating the only issue we had with an otherwise amazing indie video game.
The Sky Palace expansion for Wizard of Legend will be available in Winter 2018 for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
