In Legendary you take on the role of Charles Deckard, a high-tech art thief for hire, contracted by a secretive organisation to steal a mysterious artefact from deep within a New York Museum. What Deckard doesn't know is that the artefact is actually Pandora's Box, a vessel for unspeakable horrors.
Unaware of the box's nature, the Deckard opens the box and releases its contents into the world. Now a horde of beasts once thought to be mythical spills into the world. With flocks of griffon roaming the sky, werewolves, minotaurs, titans and kraken roaming the earth and sea, a war to end all wars between man and myth begins.
As the man responsible for releasing them, Deckard's is the only person capable of saving civilization by containing the terrifying creatures once more. As civilisation falls, with the aid of a clandestine paramilitary force you take to the streets of New York City and London, fighting the mythical beasts tooth and claw with modern firearms and artillery. As the spectacular battle unfolds, the world around falls, with buildings disintegrating and skyscraper collapsing as you play.
Taking the game from single-player, the Legendary offers a multi-player mode gives you the opportunity to take on the enemy with human fire power, battling monsters with everything at your disposal.
