'Disciples II Gold' Ships To Retail

by Judy on Feb. 3, 2005 @ 8:32 a.m. PST

Strategy First Inc. is pleased to announce that Disciples II Gold has shipped to retailers nationwide. Developed and published by Strategy First, Disciples II Gold offers four great titles and countless hours of fantasy gameplay in one adventure-packed box.

“Disciples II Gold is the perfect opportunity for anyone to introduce themselves to the Disciples II titles for the first time,” says Emanuel Wall, the Producer at Strategy First.

Disciples II Gold brings you the complete Disciples II campaign series including Dark Prophecy, Guardians of the Light, Servants of the Dark, Rise of the Elves, and five new bonus quests. For the first time, players can follow the entire Disciples II storyline from start to finish.

Dark Prophecy takes you back to the magical realm of the Sacred Lands. The four races, the Empire, the Mountain Clans, the Legions of the Damned, and the Undead Hordes, continue the battle for the destiny of their gods.

Guardians of the Light leads you into the fantastic world of Disciples II as either the Empire or the Mountain Clans. The Empire is decaying from within as self-proclaimed rulers struggle for control of the now vacant throne, and a cruel inquisition is sweeping across the human lands fostering rebellion and misery. Meanwhile, the Clans, recovering from their near-destruction, begin to reunite their tribes. They have received divine instructions, and now seek to uncover an ancient ritual that will let them communicate with their god, Wotan.

Servants of the Dark brings you into the never-ending quest for supremacy as either the Undead Hordes or the Legions of the Damned. On the dark side, the Legions of the Damned enact a plan to spread Bethrezen’s plague across Nevendaar. They sense the threat brought on by the rebirth of the Elven god and will stop at nothing to steal this power for their own self-interest. Mortis and her army of Undead Hordes, however, are not to be ignored. After all, her intention remains to inflict revenge on her husband, Gallean, after he rejected her for becoming a twisted and heartless beast.

Rise of the Elves allows you to play as the elder Elven race as they struggle to reclaim their forests from the four primary forces in Nevendaar. Driven by an unpredictable god who urges them to battle, the Elves begin a massive march towards their fate. The Noble Elves rule their people from elaborate fortresses within the trees. Their queen is a just leader, preferring the path of peace for her kind. The Wild Elves have become forest predators. Their intolerance of the civilized world has reached new extremes, and they have reduced themselves to highwaymen and bandits. The thought of their race allying with another is appalling. An oracle’s message, however, tells of Gallean’s intentions to lash out against his timeless enemies forcing the Noble and the Wild Elves to unite their scattered tribes.

Disciples II Gold is available for purchase at all major retailers at a suggested retail price of $19.99. Rated Teen by ESRB. For more information on Disciples II Gold please visit
