That’s right: this game has a name that’s far too long for me to risk any sort of clever headline. Sorry, everyone. You’re stuck with that.
“This game” is (and here I take a deep breath) King’s Bounty: Warriors of the North – Ice and Fire, an expansion/DLC pack to King’s Bounty: Warriors of the North. Which I actually assumed was a stand-alone expansion to King’s Bounty, but I guess it’s a psuedo-sequel? Hm.
Ice and Fire casts you as Olaf, son of the Northling King, who’s off to parts of the world that have yet to be explored. He’ll encounter new characters and beasties like Snow Elves and Necrolizards, explore new locations, find new items, employ a “creature skill system” that lets your troops become more powerful, and – most likely – engage in turn-based tactical combat.
King’s Bounty: Warriors of the North – Ice and Fire is due out digitally on 30 January. No word on pricing yet.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
