King’s Bounty: Warriors Of The North review

The fourth game in Katauri Interactive's reboot of olden strategy/RPG hybrid King's Bounty is out now. Warriors Of The North requires no knowledge of the earlier games, involving a new storyline and a new hero, and a whole lot of Norse mythology-inspired beasts and magic. More of the cheerful same or a new take on what's become somewhat routine? Here's what I think.

Interview: Katauri Interactive On Royal Quest

It takes something special to get us excited about the announcement of a new MMO, and one coming from the team behind King's Bounty and Space Rangers is just that. We got hold of Katauri Interactive's boss, Dmitry Gusarov, to ask about Royal Quest, finding out how they're making their hobby their business, their plans for payment models, aims for Diablo-style speed, and how they…

King’s Bounty Devs Announce Royal Quest

Coo, here's something good. New MMOs are announced every day now. There's an extraordinary glut of them, most of which will never trouble your attention, being free-to-pay conversions of Korean et al epics that have 50 million players, none of whom you'll ever meet. However, when the new MMO being announced is being developed by they behind King's Bounty, everyone should suddenly sit up and…

King’s Bounty: Crossworlds review

Oops. This was intended to be an initial impressions post rather than a Wot I Think, as I didn't have the time to give Crossworlds enough of a shake for a verdict. Or so I thought, in my guilelessness. This is a King's Bounty game, though. It's a strategy-roleplaying mash-up that plum doesn't care whether you have time or not. Show it even a hint…

Twice Removed: King’s Bounty Crossworlds

Any day with more King's Bounty in it is a good day. There's no sign yet of a proper sequel to what was one of the best PC games of 2008, but we have had an expansion pack in sequel's clothing, in the form of 2009's sprawling but slightly underwhelming expandalone Armored Princess. Now that is getting its own expansion, Crossworlds. There's only one possible…

Before King’s Bounty There Was…

I find myself reviewing Space Rangers 2: Reboot for PC Gamer magazine UK. Which is their business entirely, so you won't hear any opinion on it from me here, bar linking to the review if it ends up online. But! It did create a little brain-tickle of worry that we hadn't mentioned this revised version of the old multi-genre dear on RPS. Why should you…

King’s Wordcounty: Armored Princess Pt.1

Well, I’d hoped to have loads to tell you by now. Remember the zombie bride, the battle inside my own belt, the dragon with a toothache? Last year’s King’s Bounty: The Legend was splendid at generating absurdist anecdotes. I’m a few hours into its addon/sequel Armored Princess, and I haven’t hit anything like that yet, to my chagrin. I met a drunk guy at one…

Anglicised Princess: King’s Bounty Nu-Demo

Man, I pick my moments. If I'd have waited just one more day, just one more measly day, I could have ended my post about King's Bounty: Armored Princess yesterday with a link to the just-released English demo. I didn't. I got too excited. I have failed you. I'm sorry. You won't ever hear from me again. ...At least not until my Armored Princess diaries,…

Vid-Action – King’s Bounty: Armored Princess

Ooh, the first footage of the expansion for my favourite game of last year, the Heroes of Might'n'Magicky King's Bounty: The Legend. So far, all we knew was it featured an impractically-dressed female hero, a grown-up version of the parent game's Princess Amelie, a pet dragon, a pegasus and a race of angry anteater types. Can't say I feel terribly threatened by anteaters, but presumably…

When Legends Fade: A Farewell To King’s Bounty

I’m amazed that it took me so long to realise how I should really be spending the three weeks I recently spent offline thanks to a feckless ISP. Reading, walking, meeting exciting new people? Nah. Finally finishing King’s Bounty, my favourite game of 2008, but one that proved so long and so sadly short on its early hyper-enthusiasm in its later hours that I’d had…

King’s Blather: Dissecting An Armoured Princess

The RPS Klaxons sounded their loudest AWOOGAS in some time today, upon the news that King's Bounty: The Legend, the mad, wonderful Russian strategy-rpg weird 'em up, is to get the expansion pack treatment. True to the parent game, the details sound cheerfully batshit. So we figured that, rather than just post them, we'd go through each of its announced features and say clever/stupid (mostly…

Still Consumed By King’s Bounty

Finding myself, for the first time in at least two years, with a weekend in which I didn't have an insane amount of work to do, I idly returned to crazed Russian RPG-strategy delight King's Bounty, which is continuing to entertain me more than any game this year outside of World of Goo. Without quite realising it, I managed to clock up something like 14…

King’s Bounty Demo

Space Rangers 2 folks Katauri Interactive are releasing their new game, King's Bounty: The Legend, in the US soon (possibly in the UK, but nowt confirmed) and the English demo is out already. Get it here, at a muscular 687mb. It's a shiny-looking Heroes of Might & Magic type fantasy RPG, albeit modernised and polished up in a rather Blizzardian fashion. The Russian press gave…
