'Disciples II: Servants of the Dark' Ships To Stores

Publisher/Developer Strategy First announced today that the Disciples world has expanded even further with Disciples II: Servants of the Dark, which shipped to retail stores today. “First we brought you Guardians of the Light, and now Servants of the Dark, which is going to introduce gamers to a whole new side of the Disciples world,” says Steve Milburn, Director of Marketing for Strategy First. “The good side was fun, but we all know that everyone is waiting for their chance to visit the dark side…”

Servants of the Dark is a stand-alone expansion to Disciples II: Dark Prophecy. On the dark side, the Legions of the Damned enact a plan to spread Bethrezen’s plague across Nevendaar. They sense the threat brought about by the rebirth of the Elven god and will stop at nothing to steal this power for their own purposes. Perhaps most pivotal to the conflict, however, is Mortis and her army of Undead Hordes. After all, the rebirth of her husband Gallean was her doing. He had rejected her for what she had become, a twisted, heartless beast. Now she would teach her mate a lesson…one that would scar his people for eternity…

  • 2 new high-level mini-campaigns and the original Disciples II campaigns
  • 16 skirmish/multiplayer maps
