What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As a studio with only two people, it is easy for us to go towards a crooked path because of the lack of communication and advice from different participants. Early access provides a good platform for us to interact and communicate with a large number of players, which is conducive to making the game more fun.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Up till now, we've been developing for one year, and it may take another six months to a year to finish all of the features we originally planned.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of the game will have overall improved systems and significantly more content. It will include four legions (Human, Undead, Steam, and Wild), more gods, more building options, more map elements, more neutral units, more random events, and a campaign. Outside of this, there are some other things that might be added, such as each legion's own battles, encyclopedia, map editor, and so on.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All the features listed in the "About This" section are already implemented. You can refer to that section for full details. The gameplay and balance of the existing content has come along quite well and can be played as a full version. We already have a group of test players before release, most of them have spent more than 50 hours playing, and we are confident in the quality of our game based on their feedback.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“After Early Access, the price might go up as the cost increases and more content is added.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We very much hope that players can actively participate in the development process of the game and provide us with suggestions as well as set expectations. This is including but not limited to that following areas:

Game Features
We actively encourage players to provide new ideas and suggestions for us to improve the game.

If you encounter any bugs, please send us the corresponding save data and a brief description.

Game localization is a quite heavy task. Our development team has limited time and energy, and we hope that some players can help us to complete the localization of the game so that more players around the world can play our game.

As mentioned above, players can either post in steam community or directly send us an email at wangyao500@gmail.com, and we will reply in the order in which we receive them.”

About This Game


"Legion War" is a 4X strategy game in a fantasy setting. As the leader of a legion,you must build your own castles and expand your territory, explore unknown lands, and search for mysterious treasure, cultivate your own heroes and troops while exterminating your opponent's, and challenge the god who rules the world behind the scenes.


In the original EA version, there are three legions available (which will increase in the future), the expansive HUMAN legion, crafty UNDEAD legion, and advanced STEAM legion. Each legion has 3 unique heroes, 9 specialized units, 9 spells and a set of specialized technology cards.

Procedurally Generated Worlds

The worlds are procedurally generated to ensure that each game is a new experience. There are five different types of maps: Pangaea, Great Plain, Mediterranean, Islands and Ring Continent. Each game map supports up to six legions playing together.


Compete for expanded access to the 4 different kinds of resources in the game: Gold, Knowledge, Industry, and Magic. Each resource can be obtained by capturing a corresponding resource on the map or by building structures in your castles.


Units are the main part of your legion, you need them to explore the world, find treasure, defeat enemies, and eventually conquer the gods themselves. Each legion has 9 unique units, and you can occupy a mercenary camp or a sea castle to recruit a variety of neutral units.


If units are the arms and legs of your forces, then the Heroes are the backbone. Each legion has 3 unique heroes, and you can also upgrade your normal units to heroes through technology cards allowing any unit to access to talents and equipment but limiting you to one of that unit. Every Hero gets new talent trees each game and can wear six pieces of equipment to customize their use over the course of the game.

Each hero gets a different upgrade talent in each game.

Each hero can wear six pieces of equipment.


Each legion has 9 unique spells. Casting spells consumes mana but has an immediate effect on the world. Many spells attack your enemy or assist your army while others have unique effects like peering into the fog of war or summoning fields of tombs.

Castle buildings

You can spend Gold to build new buildings or upgrade old ones in your castles and sea castles. Each castle has 1 main building slot and 8 secondary building slots which become available as the castle grows over time. Will you focus on rapid growth or take a more militaristic aproach?

Technology Cards

Knowledge is used to unlock technology cards, many of which fundamentally alter how the game will play out. There are three main tech trees for each legion: economy, military, and magic which each have three levels of tech available. Each slot can be filled with one technology card of the corresponding level and higher levels are unlocked by purchasing your first card of the previous level in any given tree. Most technology cards are shared between legions, but each also has its own unique technology cards which allow them to specilize. Technology cards can increase your economic output, increase the power of your units, strengthen your spells, and much, much more.

Unit Upgrade Trees

The industry resource is used to purhcase upgrades for your units which are effective for all units of that type. You can completely customize your units to meat the strategic demands of each game. Each unit has its own independent talent tree through which a unit can be developed into many different functions. You can also use Industry to equip a unit with 3 different items to further cement their role in your legion.

Random events

There are hundreds of random events in the game and different events will bring unexpected changes to the game as it progresses.

Celestial Magic

There are 2 celestials in the game which start off neutral to all factions. If you occupy an altar on the map, you can pay tribute to one celestial and get magic from them in return. Paying tribute to one of the celestials will bring the ire of other celestial. Once their wrath can no longer be contained, they will order their troops to attack you, or even join the field themselves.
