Publisher Gameforge has announced the release window for the western release of Kingdom Under Fire II.
The long-awaited action/RTS/MMORPG is finally heading to North America and Europe for Windows PC sometime in November of this year. A price point is set at $29.99, and pre-orders are available now. Featured above, you can view a new trailer for the game.
There’s a few options to choose alongside the regular version, including the $49.99 Emperor Package and the $99.99 War God Package editions. You can find more details for each version here.
“While Gameforge is known for its extensive lineup of Free-to-Play games, Kingdom Under Fire II is the perfect candidate for a change to a Premium pricing model as we aim to provide an installment to the Kingdom Under Fire series that was worth waiting for,” Gameforge chief product officer Tomislav Perkovic said in a press release. “Gameforge is always on the lookout for opportunities to expand our portfolio and business models, with our focus on providing the best game experience possible for our player base. Once players get their hands on the game and the considerable amount of content already planned after the launch, we’re sure they’ll be pleased.”
Kingdom Under Fire II lead product manager Noemi Feller added, “Kingdom Under Fire II will offer an accessible and dynamic experience for many types of players. It will have higher drop rates and a more traditional RPG-centric gameplay balancing than found in many F2P titles, which we know some fans of the genre prefer. The Kingdom Under Fire II in-game store will only focus on optional cosmetic items and convenience items such as character mounts. We look forward to introducing this long-awaited addition to the franchise to western markets this November.”
Here’s a brief rundown on the game:
Originally announced in 2008, Kingdom Under Fire II combines the MMORPG and Real-Time Strategy (RTS) genres into a hybrid title unrivaled in its epic scale. From Developer Blueside, Kingdom Under Fire II is set in a world where three powerful factions—the Human Alliance, Dark Legion, and Encablossians—compete for control over the land of Bersia. Players can choose from several hero classes and focus on building up their individual characters or command massive armies as war strategists. Kingdom Under Fire II takes place 50 years after the events of Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders and features an immersive story campaign that can be experienced in multiplayer online or in solo play.
