Legends – fight in alien arenas to become a legend

Legends is a fast-paced first-person-perspective online multiplayer game released as freeware.

The game is designed to take advantage of the beautiful environments available from the Torque engine it is based on, while still offering the breakneck pacing and variety of styles available from such classics as Quake and Tribes.

Legends is a game built by gamers for gamers in an effort to recapture the spirit of competitive play that has seemed to have dissipated from team based games where full mobility is allowed.

Features include:

  • Game type offerings range from the classic Capture the Flag, Deathmatch and Duel to new types, e.g. ‘War’.
  • Community map pack.
  • Full-featured editor – skins, models, and effects can all be modified by the end-user with commonly available tools:
    • Integrated mission builder.
    • Construct, place, size, scale and rotate objects.
    • Multi-level undo/redo.
    • Edit object properties.
    • Control mission lighting.
    • Mission scripting.
    • Built-in terrain editor.
    • Rule based fractal height field generator.
    • Rule based fractal terrain tiling.
  • Based on the Torque Gaming Engine by GarageGames.
