SouthPeak Games and TopWare Interactive have announced the sequel to Two Worlds will be released in September.
The fantasy RPG title, set for release on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, will hit US store shelves on 14 September with the European launch set to follow on 17 September.
The game’s predecessor received lukewarm reviews upon its release back in 2007 and, according to SouthPeak, fan feedback has been crucial to improving the franchise.
“Topware and Reality Pump have spent a tremendous amount of time listening to feedback based on the original game,” said SouthPeak’s Richard Iggo.
“If the reaction we’ve seen so far from the press is indicative of what’s to come, we have a game that will be seen as a benchmark in the genre. ‘Epic’ is a word that’s overused and worn-out when it comes to games like this, so we’ve created a new word for Two Worlds II: Astronepic. Yeah, it’s that good.”
The sequel builds on the storyline of the first game, sending the player on a quest through a “vast magical land”, and apparently features “strong atmosphere and “dazzling visuals.” The game is built around the all-new GRACE engine which allowed the developer to include Real Eye Adaptation, HD Dynamic Motion Capture, and Multi-Source Dynamic Lighting.
