Publisher PLAION and developer Fulqrum Games have released King’s Bounty II for next-gen console platforms.
King’s Bounty II is now available for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, and owners of the game on Xbox One or PlayStation 4 get the new version as a free upgrade – alongside being able to migrate their save data.
As expected, the Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 versions support up to 4K dynamic resolution (not on Series S, though), faster load times, a performance mode with 60 frames per second, and overall better performance.
King’s Bounty II was originally released for Windows PC (via Steam), Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 back in August 2021.
Here’s a rundown on the game, plus a new trailer:
Darkness descends over the world of Nostria. Conspiracies, sabotage, and necromancy are overshadowing the country. But maybe a saviour – the kingdom’s last hope – is already here, to fight back and finally restore peace and order in Nostria!
King’s Bounty II is the long-awaited sequel to the legendary King’s Bounty video games franchise, one of the most iconic representatives of the turn-based RPG genre. Expanding on this legacy with an entirely new epic story, factions, enemies, and new features to forge an open and breaking fantasy world Antara. With the kingdoms in disarray, counties demanding independence, bandits prowl the roads, all the overseas nations have denied the King’s authority over them, and blighted creatures lie in wait for the unwary, new accidental heroes emerge as a last hope.
They are determined to bring order to the chaos. Play as one of them, recruiting, developing, and commanding your personal army on a non-linear adventure of betrayal, sacrifice, and survival. Fighting for your own future, outsmarting enemy in uniquely turn-based combat, making difficult decisions, and experience the intensity of one of the classic sagas in an exciting new way.
