Elemental: Fallen Enchantress Video and New Monsters

Get the first look at the follow-up to Elemental: War of Magic with a new video and screenshots of some of the game's new beasties.

It wouldn't be an understatement to say that last year's Elemental: War of Magic was a disappointing game. The all-new fantasy-themed strategy game was intended to pay tribute to the cult-classic Master of Magic, but it shipped with numerous technical issues (among other things). To set the ship aright, Stardock acquired new talent, including Derek Paxton, the creative mind behind the popular Civilization IV modification Fall From Heaven II, as well as Jon Shafer, the lead designer of Civilization V.

The now-slightly-larger team is hard at work on Fallen Enchantress, an expansion to Elemental that will add tons of new content, presumably with at least some of the dark-fantasy trappings that Paxton's Fall From Heaven II is known for.

Visit GameSpot's screenshot gallery for Elemental: Fallen Enchantress to acquaint yourself with Abeix, Who Dwells Beneath, along with the game's other new beasties.

Stardock has shared a new developer diary video with GameSpot, above, covering the new game's new beasts, and has also shared a great many new images of the new critters, such as the "naja" giant snakes, the speedy and poisonous "plaguecats," the evil "haunter" priests, the demon-summoning "ritualist," the murderous "butcherman," the lumbering "scrap golem," the minor fire elementals known as "ignys," along with the new elemental lord "Abeix, Who Dwells Beneath," a powerful new entity whose massive size and thick armor make it a formidable foe.

Fallen Enchantress will be released later this year.

It took quite some time before elemental: war of magic became stable game. Hope they make this one a bit better :D

I do hope they get this game fixed and running up to Stardock standards soon, but that initial impact of Elemental's failures really hit hard when it was released. Then Civ V came out immediately after and had its' share of disappointments, as well. I wish Stardock the best, but I think I'll give them another chance with GalCiv 3 whenever that comes...

@Gelugon_baat: As much as Paxton is indeed a blessing; Shafer still have to give proof that he is a relevant partner (I really do hope so). Many strategy gamers are not yet over with what happened to the Civ Series recently. Anyhow, looking forward to this one, since this Stand Alone Expansion/Game comes free for people who bought War of Magic at release. You have to admire stardock for that.
