Popular French developer Amplitude Studios officially unveiled its community-driven Steam Free Weekend today, giving gamers the chance to try, play, and join a worldwide effort to unlock new, secret characters, items, and more in the 4X fantasy-strategy Endless Legend and the rogue-like dungeonÃ¢â‚¬â€œdefense game Dungeon of the Endless. Equally exciting is that Amplitude is offering participants the chance to unlock official playable Team Fortress characters in Dungeon of the Endless Ã¢â‚¬â€œ all of them perfectly Ã¢â‚¬ËœretroÃ¢â‚¬â„¢-fitted into Ã¢â‚¬ËœbitÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ graphics that match the rogue-likeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s colorful, old-school art style.
As part of the free weekend-long promotion, which starts today, Thursday, April 16, and ends Monday, April 20, all of AmplitudeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s games will be on sale at significantly reduced prices: Endless Legend and Dungeon of the Endless will be on sale at 50% off, and Endless Space is 80% off the retail price.
AmplitudeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s free weekend is dedicated to offering new and veteran gamers the chance to experience the studioÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s growing GAMES2GETHER community. Using Ã¢â‚¬Ëœstretch goalsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ for participants to reach, Amplitude has created a universal set of tiers where the more players who join and play, the more unlockable characters, items, and other secret content pieces are unlocked in Endless Legend and Dungeon of the Endless. Gamers are encouraged to play alone, together in multiplayer, and to tell their friends to increase the cumulative number of players participating to reach a series of unlocking tiers. Each time a tier is reached, new content is unlocked for future updates.
