Neocore’s multi-facted King Arthur II has a demo out, and the people from Paradox claim it’s about an hour long. An hour isn’t all that long, really, but should be enough for you to taste this all-encompassing fantasy strategy sequel. I’ve been rather to keen on playing this myself, actually, because the original game was one of Paradox’s strongest games of 2009. Gosh, was it really that long ago? 2009: when the druids still walked Albion…

An official website for a game has launched! Shout it from the hilltops! Proclaim it to the masses! There is also a release date for the game! It will actually be released on a day that is not very far away! Total War with myth, magic and choose your own adventure segments is how I think of King Arthur II, which is not to say it doesn’t have an identity of its own and perhaps you will be able to discover that identity on the aforementioned website or upon the aforementioned release date (Jan 27th). Or maybe in the rather more useful 56 minute recording of a livestream that I’ve buried in Avalon, which for our purposes lies just below. Click to retrieve it. Exhumation and archaeology made easy!

Edit: I have been STRONGLY told off by Paradox, involving a firm slap to the back of my knees, informing me that Dead Legions is about 10 hours of game, and that there will be a demo out closer to release.
Original: You can now pre-order Paradox’s King Arthur II, which I understand is a likely action by rather a lot of our readers. And good work if you do, because not only will you be able to sit back, safe in the knowledge that you’ve saved valuable seconds on the day of release, but you’ll also get a chapter of the game to play upon this very day. Which is why I mention it.

As the Winter months draw in, and RPS finds it has to light the fire all day long just to thaw our toes, gaming news starts to dry up a little. But fortunately there are three incredibly crap new screenshots of King Arthur II! So what can I possibly have to complain about, eh? You can see them below, along with some actual news about the game.

The Holy Grail has been shattered into pieces. King Arthur lies deathly wounded, struck down by Morgause, the Witch Queen of the Orkney Islands and suffers from a magical wound that will never heal. The Holy Roman Empire has absconded from Britannia leaving a fractured land full of squabbling nobles. The armies of the Picts are breaking through Hadrian’s Wall to the north, Vikings are mooring off the coast to the east, and Wales has fallen to an invasion of Dragons, replacing the Welsh druid masters. It’s a bad day in Albion.
