I'm going to the annual Paradox Interactive convention next week, where developers will says things to me like "We've finally corrected the hat height of our 16th century Polish Hussars!" And I will nod like a man trying to escape from the tender embrace of a headcrab. But it won't all be inaccessible historic strategy games! Hark: Neocore has just released a teaser trailer for King Arthur 2, which awaits your inexhaustible attention beneath the jump. Seriously, what are they feeding you?
What are we looking forward to? In brief:
King Arthur II will feature a new and dark fantasy setting. No longer a valiant ruler, King Arthur is now the Maimed King trying to mend a land almost beyond repair in a stunning new plot. More heroic, large scale battles with bigger armies are at reach to defeat more powerful foes. Intense boss fights never seen before promise to pit hero’s forces against unique and terrifying enemies. A new wide range of camera control options, revised animations and an extensive tutorial will provide for the ultimate gaming experience.
Boss fights never seen before in the ultimate gaming experience! Christ!
There's no denying that Neocore are quite good at this basically-Total-War-but-not-quite thing. Jim quite enjoyed the first King Arthur, and I felt the same way about their next game, Lionheart. I reckon King Arthur 2 will literally be pretty good. That's what I reckon.
