Well this is exciting news, it turns out that the sequel to a game that Altered Confusion personally enjoyed, is coming sooner than we could have hoped. The release of Blackguards 2 has been set for January 20th, 2015. Yes, yes, it is still a little bit away, but definitely close enough to start making plans to sink your teeth and time back into this series. I think the most exciting thing is that they have reportedly taken into consideration what the fans had to say about the first game and made the new addition to the series that much better. For a couple more details, I would like to give you there little blurb on the announcement:
we have great news on our upcoming strategy RPG Blackguards 2! On January 20th 2015, gamers will be able to start into even more challenging and detailed strategic RPG battles, when Blackguards 2 will be released worldwide for PC and Mac.
During the development of Blackguards 2, one major influence of our team was the feedback of gamers and press to the first Blackguards-game. We listened to them and added new features, unique enemies and enhanced and improved gameplay. In Blackguards 2, battles will be even more epic, and their handling has been significantly tweaked to make them more comprehensible, but also more challenging. Gamers can test out themselves how much more fun Blackguards 2 will be from January 20th onwards.
For 29.99 US$/ 22.99£/ 29.99€/ 499RUR/ 2,980Yen Blackguards 2 will be available on Steam, GOG and other major online stores, featuring full English and German localization as well as subtitles in Spanish, French, Russian, Polish, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, Japanese and Korean.
If this game is an improvement off the first one then $29.99 is a very exciting price. I'm hoping that we can get our hands on a preview copy so that we can tell you about some of the inner workings, but for now, I might just mark my calendars to get this one.
