King Arthur II in Development

Publisher Paradox Interactive and the Hungarian studio Neocore Games announced the development of the game King Arthur II: The Role-playing Wargame. Previous title in the series, King Arthur: The Role-playing Wargame (2009), turned out to be an innovative and enjoyable strategy gem featuring the possibility to use magical spells on the battlefield. For some months Neocore Games was promoting the game and its Add-ons independently using Steam services, but closer to the end of 2010 Paradox Interactive from Sweden secured its publishing rights to the whole line-up.

The first game was telling about Sir Arthur Pendragon’s ascension to power in his attempts to unite the scattered provinces of Britain and to balance the needs of Christianity and Old Faith followers. The game has got several expansion packs also taking into consideration many community wishes. The original title was well-received by critics and gamers from different countries, and the right mix of turn-based strategy on the global map with the real-time tactical fantasy battles looked intriguing.

King Arthur II: The Role-playing Wargame will feature a new and dark fantasy setting. No longer a valiant ruler, King Arthur is now the Maimed King trying to mend a land almost beyond repair in a stunning new plot. More heroic, large scale battles with bigger armies are at reach to defeat more powerful foes. Intense boss fights never seen before promise to pit hero’s forces against unique and terrifying enemies. A new wide range of camera control options, revised animations and an extensive tutorial will provide for the ultimate gaming experience. According to our sources, the title might be released somewhere in 2012.

Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox Interactive, provided a comment for the announcement: «We couldn’t be more thrilled to add King Arthur II to our lineup of exceptional upcoming titles. From the early development that has taken place, we know this newest title will more than live up to its predecessor».

Producer of King Arthur II at the Neocore’s side, Zoltán Pozsonyi, reflected his assurance in the success of the upcoming release as well: «We have every intention of testing the limits in the sequel. With an extraordinary new plot and insane new battles, our community’s expectations will be blown away».
