First there was Overlord, and now there is two of it. Codemasters, that great British institution, has announced a sequel to the “play-as-evildoer-but-not-really” game in which you commanded a swarm of pleasant goblins. It was the fantasy orcs ‘n’ axes variation of Pikmin, something like that, and it had some entertaining bits. But will there be entertaining bits in the sequel? Codies seem to think so:
“Epic battles, all new Minion play mechanics, a stunningly detailed new visuals and a fresh theme – Overlord II’s really packing a punch,” says Lennart Sas, director and Overlord lead at Triumph Studios. “We’re really excited about shifting the world to a new era where a Roman-inspired Empire rises as the arch-enemy of the Overlord.” Woo, pseudo-Romans.
