Hammerwatch II

Publisher Modus Games and developer Crackshell have announced a release date for Hammerwatch II, their new throwback open world ARPG.

Hammerwatch II is launching August 15th for Windows PC (via Steam) and later in 2023 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PS5.

Here’s a rundown on the new info, plus a new trailer:

In today’s trailer, see the glories that await you in the world of Hammerwatch II. With four-player co-op, you and your party of heroes can adventure across a vast, beautifully crafted land, solving the problems of any quaint town you might happen upon while working to aid King Roland’s resistance against Blight the Horrible and his dragon army. Waiting for you are the varied forces of evil, from massive dragons to hordes of the undead. Craft mighty weaponry and potions too powerful for any average adventurer to give you the upper hand in the battles to come.

Journey through Hammer Island, the Fallowfields and the dark mountainous regions of Blackbarrow, all created in the signature Hammerwatch pixelated art style. Build a custom Herian Hero and choose between five distinct character classes: Paladin, Ranger, Rogue, Wizard and Warlock before customizing a hero’s appearance and leveling up to unlock powerful new abilities and skills.

Fans can look forward to an entirely new open world, and PC players will be treated to a fully moddable world as modding support will be available at launch. Edit levels, create new stories and be the author of your own adventure.
