Warlock II Casts Screenspell
The problem with most 4X strategy games released is that they get compared to Civilization. Games like Galactic Civilizations, bring it on themselves with the word 'Civilization' in the title, so automatically compared. Then we got this 4X fantasy game Warlock II: The Exiled, which have decided to try and make it on its own merit, with a independent name and look to the game. So included here are some new screenshots and a trailer.
First up here are some of the game features:
• "Spelling Counts – Over 150 spells to add to your tome, allowing command over powerful enchantments, nasty hexes, and elemental forces
• "A Crass Menagerie – Hundreds of different mythical and magical beasts to deploy on the battlefield with distinct tactical uses, from giant rats and dwarven prospectors to werewolves with hats on them
• "Friendship is Magic – A multi-player experience as robust as the single-player experience, including PvP, Co-op PvE, and every combination in between
• "Warlock 2: The Playstyles – Fight your way through the shards to reclaim Ardania in new 'Exile' mode or dispatch opponents the old-fashioned way in 'Sandbox' mode."
If this game is anything like the original Warlock, then the focus is going to be on 4X combat, and the spells will be more violent conflict and destructive spells. The game is released spring 2014, and should be quite the treat looking at the trailer and screenshots.
