Warlock 2: The Exiled review

Warlock II is a turn-based strategy game with roleplaying elements (players of both Civilization and Heroes of Might & Magic will be at home here), set in Paradox's comic fantasy universe of Ardania.

The Exiled expands upon its precursor’s strongest elements…

Mightier Magic: Warlock 2 Annnounced

Paradox have produced a rather amusing trailer to announce the upcoming Warlock 2: The Exiled. A sequel to Master of the Arcane is certainly worth paying attention to. The original was a tightly packaged fantasy-civ, with alternate planes of reality to conquer and gentlemanly werewolves. The sequel looks like more of the same - much more - and the slightly unhinged streak is still on…
