'Black & White 2' - 5 New Screens

by Rainier on July 19, 2005 @ 1:12 a.m. PDT

In Black & White you left the world behind because it was exactly how you wanted it to be. The whole world believed in you. As a god, your job was done. But since you've been away, things have changed. The tribes have discovered technology and are embracing the power it brings with a zeal bordering on the religious. And with new technology comes war. Are you ready for war? You had better be, because the people of Eden are and they need guidance. Whether you persuade them to fight, or encourage them to be peaceful... it's up to you.

Players can also tap new resources and disciples by creating ties with the Japanese or dueling the Aztecs. Players will also have the ability to construct new buildings including armories and a harbor, and explore new islands each with their own culture and climate.

Will you be an evil or benevolent deity? That's the choice players must make upon returning to a warring land in Black & White 2. Like its wildly successful predecessor, Black & White, the sequel is all about moral choices. The land, however, has transformed itself. The inhabitants of this breathtaking 3D world have lost their innocence. They're technically savvy and they believe in one god. They are also looking for converts from other tribes.

As players enter this warring world will they make tribes coexist peacefully, encouraging villages and towns to grow into metropolises, or prompt them to inflict their will upon others by creating and commanding large armies that seek to dominate and conquer?

Creatures in the game have grown too. They can learn strategies, master new abilities and skills, lead armies into battle and be a player's ultimate unit.

The world is more highly developed now with new weapons and technology. Every choice a player makes will have an impact. Each action and inaction prompts obvious changes to buildings, flora and/or fauna all morphing to reflect the player's personality.
