About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.


'Konung 2' Goes Gold

by Judy on Nov. 11, 2004 @ 2:11 p.m. PST

Got Game Entertainment LLC and co-publisher Merscom LLC today announced that "Konung 2" has gone gold. The unique fantasy role-playing game with real-time strategy and adventure elements is set in a mystical world of magic and legend, alive with tribes of wild Slavic hunters, noble traders of the Byzantine Empire, and fearless Viking warriors.

"Konung 2" adopts the dark and complex atmosphere of ancient Scandinavia, combining history with classical myths and legends, immortal heroes, magical artifacts and ancient sorcery. In this tale, good and evil have now transposed, resulting in chaos and turmoil. Having fallen under the spell of wicked magic, a new Dark Master now threatens the land and only six warriors, male and female descendants of the Titans, can stop him in his quest to destroy all that can be used to return peace and stability. These heroes must summon their courage, strength, and wits to defeat this new face of evil and his minions, both human and monstrous.

While continuing the original's tradition of going beyond action-style role-playing by offering adventure-style gameplay with dozens of quests and a strong storyline, this sequel to "Konung: Legend of the North" stands entirely on its own and offers a wealth of new features. Striking improvements include an enhanced RPG system with a wide range of character skills and features. "Konung 2" also boasts better, more varied, fighting techniques, improved AI, dozens of quests, detailed dialogue system, additional RTS elements, such as extensive settlement management, and new monsters.

Retailing for $19.99 (USD) and rated "T" for Teen by the ESRB for Blood and Fantasy Violence, "Konung 2" was developed by 1C Company and is scheduled to arrive on store shelves December 3, 2004.
