Publisher Paradox Interactive has announced that the turn-based strategy game Warlock 2: The Exiled will be seeing a release in the spring of next year. The game is the sequel to Warlock: Master of the Arcane and will feature both single player and multiplayer modes.
After being exiled to a shard from a shattered world in the realm or Ardania, players will be tasked with dealing with other exiled mages as well as all sorts of nasty creatures. Players will wield magic, summon creatures and wage constant war.
The game features;
The Never-ending Gory - The battle for Ardania is constant, merciless, and challenging: your claim to the land will be tested with battles across the world map where each fight is worthy of your personal attention; you're not called a WAR-lock for nothing.
Spelling Counts - Over 150 spells to add to your tome, allowing command over powerful enchantments, nasty hexes, and elemental forces.
A Crass Menagerie - Hundreds of different mythical and magical beasts to deploy on the battlefield with distinct tactical uses, from giant rats and dwarven prospectors to werewolves with hats on them.
Friendship is Magic - A multi-player experience as robust as the single-player experience, including PvP, Co-op PvE, and every combination in between.
Warlock 2: The Playstyles - Fight your way through the shards to reclaim Ardania in new 'Exile' mode, or relive the classic gameplay of 'Master of the Arcane' mode with new features from the sequel.
The release will be for players running on a Windows PC and is in development by Ino-Co Plus. It looks pretty cool for a hex based strategy game. Here's the official trailer ...
