Two Worlds 2 Gets A Proper Trailer

By Jim Rossignol on May 27th, 2010 at 10:35 am.


A while back we did a bit of embarrassed laughing at this, but it turns out the actual debut trailer for Two Worlds 2, which has just turned up, is far snazzier, and makes the game look quite a lot posher too. I don’t expect it will genuinely dissolve the fleshy wrapping of scepticism produced by people who played the original game, but I know that at least some of those people didn’t react badly to it, and will probably be going back to visit ludicrously helmeted fantasy chappies in the sequel.

    Recognise!

  2. Brulleks says:

    I liked the first game. In fact, I preferred it to the Witcher…

    Come on! Bring on the flames!

    • Jimbo says:

      Two Worlds wasn’t that bad. I played it the whole way through, which is more than I can say for any of the Elder Scrolls games at least.

      Preferring Two Worlds to The Witcher still makes you a crazy though.

    Looks interesting… Might have to start following this.

    Would you say the first game is worth picking up? I like games. But only good ones.

    • Quasar says:

      Also, can we start calling this 2W2?

    • Alexander Norris says:

      If you only like good games, don’t bother. Two Worlds was flawed but could be pretty fun at times.

      In any case, it’s on GOG for $10 if you feel the need to buy it digitally and I’m sure you can find it for less if you go retail.

      Only if we can pronounce pronounce 2W2 ‘twat’.

    • Vague-rant says:

      I can’t wait to see more 2W2…

    • Bhazor says:

      Well lets just hope 2W2 is tight.

    • Vague-rant says:

      Unfortunately, I now realise that I ruined a perfectly good pun for decent grammar. I meant to say, “I can’t wait to see more of 2W2…”.

      2W2′s all folks!

    i find the previous trailer more entertaining: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXESp8vlh58
    in much the same way that a b-movie can be a lot of fun, while the hollywood equivalent (bigger budget and more cgi) is usually no fun at all.

  5. Chris Evans says:

    I love the use of IGNs quote ‘Intriguing’ Who really puts that quote in a game trailer?

    • whalleywhat says:

      The first quote, even. They should’ve followed it up with “I’ll have to remember to check this out.” -Kotaku and “Might buy during a Steam sale.” -Gamespot.

    Very heavily based on the Oblivion School of Graphics.
    Shiny shiny everything.

    • Bremze says:

      Wait, you’re saying you can’t see your reflection in stone/wood/rusty metal?

  7. HexagonalBolts says:

    What in the fuuuuckkk is that music?

    • Brulleks says:

      @Hexagonal Bolts

      Have you been watching Trailer Park Boys or something?

    • lhzr says:

      @bolts: it’s a german game, remember? listening to crap music from 20 years ago is normal for them.

    • Mr Labbes says:

      @Ihzr: It’s from Poland, so it’s most definitely not a German game. Although the music accusation is, admittedly, correct.

    • lhzr says:

      @labbes: oh, my bad. i could’ve sworn the devs were german, dunno where i picked that up from.

      although the music for the 1st game was composed by a german (at least according to wiki), so if he’s still onboard for this one, it might go some way towards explaining what we’ve heard in this trailer

    • Mr Labbes says:

      I think the publisher is German, the first game also got quite the buzz here (…and bad reviews).

    • futage says:

      <3 Trailer Park Boys.

    @Chris Evans

    That was my first thought as well. Could’ve been taken from any part of a review or preview. I was saddened to see that they stopped the trend after “breathtaking,” as I wanted to see what more generic words they could use to describe the game. I was hoping for something along the lines of: “Intriguing. Breathtaking. Compelling. Killing. Swords. Stuff.”

  9. Supraliminal says:

    “Breathtaking” -Destructoid

    That must have been taken out of context.

    “the environments are nothing short of breathtaking.”
    Apparently not.

  10. Oliver says:

    Yep, me too. In fact, the problem with TW was mostly with what it appeared to be – that is, an Oblivion knockoff. It wasn’t. If you went into it expecting a Diablo 2 knockoff from a different perspective and bad voiceover dialog (most of which was C-movie-class pure awesomeness), you’d have enjoyed it immensely.

    I did – I reviewed it here: http://games.thegeeklynews.com/2009/10/risen-vs-oblivion-vs-two-worlds-vs-torchlight/

    Hrmm. Another trailer which doesn’t really leave me any the wiser as to what the game’s is actually about, other than stabbing various things with swords.

    Unless that’s pretty much it, I suppose, in which case good job.

  12. darkbhudda says:

    Number 1 was so B-Grade – with Z-Grade acting – I took a shining to it. If no 2 is as fun it’s on the buy list.
