Dungeons 2 Announced For 2015 Spelunking
Sometimes it’s good to be bad. At least that seems to be the line of thinking at Realmforge Studios, where the studio’s minions are hard at work crafting Dungeons 2, follow-up to the hit 2012 resource management game that puts the player in the roll of a devious Dungeon Lord bent on creating the most devious and devastating dungeon known to man.
“If terrifying dungeons filled with hordes of loyal minions and underworld dominations are your thing, then look no further,” reads the Dungeons 2 announcement from Kalypso Media. “Dungeons 2 aims to take inspiration from the very best titles in the dungeon management/simulation genre and blend in its own trademark dark humor to deliver the most complete dungeon experience fans have been waiting for.”
It will be a while before anyone actually gets their hands on Dungeons 2, as Kalypso has pegged the in-development title for a release date “sometime in 2015,” but at least we have a new trailer to tide us over until the game launches for PC, Mac and Linux at some undetermined point next year.
So, as we’ve already established, the new trailer reiterates a few things that players can expect out of Dungeons 2: Dungeons, minions, and invading hordes. But, in all seriousness, here’s a rundown of what the development team at Realmforge Studios has to offer when their game arrives in 2015.
-A single player campaign with two playable factions, 26 creatures, multiple types of heroes and game modes.
-Unique gameplay with dungeon manager simulation mixed with real-time strategy when you drop into the overworld view.
-Take control of your game and doll out commands to your subordinates with the “Hand of Terror.”
-Tired of spending all of your time in the deep, dark dungeons? Then gather your horde and venture into the world above ground in order to sack human settlements.
-Four multiplayer modes for up to four players, both in online and LAN matches.
“Take control of the mighty Dungeon Lord and craft a network of unique and terrifying dungeons, recruit an army of fearsome creatures and command two new factions,” reads the announcement from Kalypso. “The extensive campaign story mode is packed with even more of the dark humor which made the original Dungeons a hit and is peppered with numerous references to various fantasy books, movies and TV shows.
If you’re having trouble waiting until 2015, or perhaps want to see what the series has to offer firsthand, then you can check out the original Dungeons right now by heading on over to Steam. Otherwise, look for Dungeons 2 sometime in 2015.
