Fighting Fantasy Legends has finally received it’s first gameplay showcase ahead of it’s late July release.
Steve Jackson, Ian Livingstone, and Nomad Games have come together in Nomad’s most recent release. The developer best known for their fantastic digital adaption of the Talisman board game announced the title formally at EGX Rezzed, however the game has remained low-key since then.
Fighting Fantasy Legends combines three of the more renowned Fighting Fantasy books -City of Thieves, The Warlock of Firetop Mountain and Citadel of Chaos- into one game, giving players the freedom to fight their way through the three stories.
