  • It is finally here. 10 months after getting a glimpse at PAX East, I finally have my hands on Two Worlds II. I'm not sure why, but I'd anticipated this game more than any other over the course of the past year. Maybe it is because it seemed to be such a vast improvement over the original. Maybe because it seemed to have so much potential. All I know is that I managed to hype it up in my own mind and on this site to an almost unreasonable degree. Now the time has come to see if Topware managed to produce an Action RPG deserving of such praise.

  • We're nearly there, everybody! Two Worlds II will be releasing here in North America before you know it. That's good news if you are impatient for some sword swinging goodness, and bad news if you like pre-order bonuses AND procrastination. Thus, if you want to get your hands on the GameStop goodies, get yourself down there and preorder now. Judging from the assets they've given us to look over, it should be worth the trip.

  • Well, we've got more news from the game that has been silently taunting us since PAX East, Two Worlds II. First off, there's the fact that our friends at South Peak are noisily taunting us by actually PLAYING the game. They want us to know what great fun they're having summoning up hordes of 9+ spiders to assault their foes as a mage, village clearing sniper exploits as an archer, and the warrior's "spinning attack of death." We'll have to take their word for it, for now, since us North American types won't be getting it for PS3, PC, or 360 until Jan. 25th. There is some good news about having all of that time available, though...

  • I have a new policy. If you are pitching a game, you need to include a mullet, a keyboard, and a stirring ballad in your promotional materials. What's that? You think that it would detract from the classiness of your fantasy epic? The Two Worlds II PR team begs to differ. In this latest installment of Sordahon's Journey, they tug our heartstrings in true 80's fashion. If you wish to truly understand the plight of the henchman, don't miss the video below. (It's probably your best bet to see a man in demonic armor walking a small dog or doing push-ups, too.)

  • It has been a while since we had anything juicy to give you about TW2, but we've got something I think you're going to like. Here's a brand new trailer in all of its CG, story telling goodness. This video gives you a rundown of the events of the five years elapsed between the this game and its predecessor, and it does it in suitably epic Lord Of The Rings style.
