Two Worlds 2 Footage

By Jim Rossignol on November 10th, 2009 at 9:35 am.


We have the first first footage of Two Worlds 2 in-game cinematics, which I’ve posted below. It’s… well. It made me laugh, anyway. The trailer accompanies the teaser website, and check out horn-helmet’s shield. Man!

    I have a soft spot for TW1, but this did make me rofl.

  2. Flint says:

    I’ve no idea who I was supposed to root for.

  3. cheeba says:

    The “WHAAT?” gets me every time. Truly ridiculous.

  4. blankvanish says:

    At 1:12 their bodies intersect, yet the backhand delivers. Fantastic!

  5. qrter says:

    Two Worlds 2, goo goo g’joob.

  6. blankvanish says:

    Your supposed to root for Oblivion

  7. Klaus says:

    It has really become apparent to me that murder is taken all too lightly. In games.

    Root for the orc(?) guy, the other is obscuring his face, so you know he’s dishonest.

  8. Schadenfreude says:

    What a confusing trailer.

  9. Okami says:

    wut?

  10. robrob says:

    next-gen consoles?

  11. hydra9 says:

    Launch title for PS4 and X720.

  12. Jack says:

    stellar. imagine that action as a movie.

  13. SirKicksalot says:

    If the game is intentionally made in this Frank Zaggarino fantasy epic manner, I’d buy it.

    Knowing German devs and their weird humour (Sacred 2 RAWK CONCERT lol), I hope they actually intend to make a parody. That would save the franchise…

    Hell, I can totally imagine a fun combat system that looks just like that.

    • Okami says:

      I believe the developers of this one are actually czech or polish.

    • pierec says:

      Topware is from Poland AFAIK (but with some German investors behind them), they’re the ones that delivered quite good Earth 21xx series.

    • Jim Rossignol says:

      Reality Pump and Topware are both Polish, I think.

    • dingo says:

      Topware was German but went into bankrupcy in 2001. It had offices all over Europe.
      The Polish subsidary was saved and is “Reality Pump” today.

  14. Isometric says:

    What just happened? I’m so confused.

  15. MD says:

    What the… *shplonk* Gaaa!

  16. Samuelson says:

    That was absolutely terrible, put some effort in next time… PLEASE!

  17. Bahamut says:

    The trailer is like a Lynch movie. Or maybe just something made by a drunk trainee.
    What is the link between the escape and the fight ? There is no sense at all.

    Or maybe, this time, players will incarnate some kind of minion, forced to obey to a red hood master.

  18. Dave says:

    That was fucking brilliant!

  19. Kong says:

    Here I thought silly helmet design was a thing of the past thx to Peter Jackson. In movies they never fit and almost always look silly, like in this trailer. Why guard only half the face, leaving the jaw vulnerable? Not to mention the fucking horns.

    • Spoon says:

      Lots of period helmets leave the jaw unprotected, especially if you were throwaway troops. It is probably so weird looking because it is ALMOST there. It does look like it’s missing an inch of material.

  20. Frans Coehoorn says:

    This is the Dragon Age of 2010. Really.

  21. DarkFenix says:

    The first game was so awful I don’t think it matters how good this one is, I’m afraid of even touching a bargepole that’s touched it (with a bargepole I might add).

    The first game is up there with worst voice acted games ever, worst balance ever, worst storyline ever and worst (rpg) gameplay ever.

  22. Hmm-Hmm. says:

    Um. All I can think of saying is: ‘Why?’

  23. Gutter says:

    I wouldn’t have dared to release something like this… Wow, that was shit.

  24. Amqz says:

    Gotta love that backhand. Also, when exactly do you see horn-helmets shield?

  25. GewaltSam says:

    The shield is on the homepage which is linked in the news. I have to say, this one is really hilarious, just like the trailer. Watch it for a few moments, you will see :)

  26. Kenny says:

    Need more meat

  27. RagingLion says:

    Lol at the comical and incongruous slap sound.

  28. ZIGS says:

    This is what happens when you hire a a Mexican soap opera director to direct your game trailer

    • Gotem says:

      no, if it was a Mexican soap opera an appropiate music would tell us who are the bad guys

  29. KilgoreTrout XL says:

    “It’s just a flesh wound.”

    • DerangedStoat says:

      haha, I was thinking the exact same thing at the end there.

  30. Dave says:

    There’s nothing wrong with that video that a writer, a director, a character design artist, a couple of experienced animators and the Delete key couldn’t fix.

  31. M.P. says:

    Yeah, it was amateurishly done, but a lot of promotional material is in this industry, except for big releases with a massive marketing budget. 5 years ago we would probably all ogle and drool at something like this.

    “Next-gen consoles” made me chuckle though. PS4 launch game then?

  32. Hug_dealer says:

    after the terrible first game. Terrible AI, terrible balance, terrible voice acting, but i can live with bad voice acting.

    I definately wont be giving this one a try.

  33. Max says:

    In order to get your RPS embedded videos to play I have to:

    1. Press play
    2. Click HD
    3. Press pause
    4. Press play again

  34. jeff says:

    What about the back-handed bitch slap!? Isn’t that worth something?! ROFL!

  35. Meatloaf says:

    Good to see that the atrocious blood effects are back, as is the generally confusing nature of the game.

    As a side note, I like the retro-style studio logo in the intro.

  36. Wednesday says:

    Can some one explain what the hell is going on?

    • phil says:

      At some point a focus group identified hot ninjas, big helmets and bitch slaps as the three key things missing from the first Two Worlds.

    • Gutter says:

      It seems that (the movie version of) Sauron sent a Clockwork Deer to find a prisoner who escaped a dungeon with the help of a (totally original) Elf with a bow, and a probably-Dwarf. The Clockwork Deer meet (and bitch slap) an intangible Orc with clown makeup, who manage to kill the Deer off screen.

      The Aristocrat!

    • manveruppd says:

      I could totally credit the focus group story as true…

  37. mcnostril says:

    I can’t stop looking at that shield.
    It looks so happy to have vomited bats all over.

    • Sam says:

      The shield is far, far more amazing than I could have imagined.

  38. Nero says:

    Ok then. Hope it brings us more video like .

  39. captain fitz says:

    I think the running soldier dude summed it up nicely:
    "My lord, something happened!"

  40. We Fly Spitfires says:

    Um. Ropey combat and giant horns… O… K…

  41. Dracko says:

    two worlds one cup

  42. Bobby says:

    LOL.

  43. Wasbrough says:

    Forget the happy bat shield. How’s he holding that mace without a thumb?

  44. Grape Flavor says:

    Watched the backhand bit again and again. *FWACK*

    I don’t know if it’s the weird homoerotic embrace beforehand, or the sound effect, or the way his sword clips through the guy’s torso, or some unholy combination thereof, but it’s gold.

    If the whole game is this shlockily hilarious I might just have to pick this one up.

  45. Mixmastermind says:

    I hope the second game also deals with the infection of The Taint.

  46. terry says:

    This looks gloriously silly. Two Worlds had the goofiest dialogue I have ever heard,and I can’t play without cackling with laughter and annoying people for days after shrieking “The Taint!” This appears to be more of the same

  47. PiP says:

    I’ve got a hunch they were trying to faithfully re-create heavy-sword fencing moves in that fight scene. The problem is that these swords don’t look heavy in the hands of these enormous fighters. Not to mention animation is clumsy (lol I’m a poet now).

  48. DrChi says:

    It did have bad voice acting and stuff, but I really liked the first one. One thing of note is their robes were great. They actually looked like robes, verses the “dresses” in Dragon Age: Origins.

  49. lethalfirestorm says:

    The voice acting is awesome. I should know I’m in it.

  50. kaydee says:

    I’m getting most of my kicks out of the comments on this post, even if I’m a bit late to it. You guys are awesome.
