Kingdom Under Fire II is an upcoming real-time strategy video game developed by Blueside for PC online, Xbox 360.[1] It is currently set to be released in 2010 and is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders. It was announced on January 28, 2008.[2]

The game will feature both a single player campaign as well as an MMO online mode. The developers claim it will be the first of its kind, allowing players to wage war against each other on a huge scale.[citation needed]

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The gameplay of Kingdom Under Fire II will be similar to that of the Kingdom Under Fire games for the Xbox. The player selects a character and controls the combat from a third person perspective, allowing the player to take control of their character and participate in the fighting themselves. To assist the player in the field, a varied amount of unit types can also be brought into battle, all suited for different situations and tactics. There will also be massive castle sieges which can be played offline and online which is a first for the series.

Storyline[edit | edit source]

The story is set approximately 150 years after the events depicted in Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders, the game will feature the return of The Human Alliance and Dark Legion plus a new faction - the Encablossians - whose aim is to reassert the cycle of light and Dark Ages by destroying the current Age of Light, which has already run far beyond its natural course. This faction is led by Regnier (from previous Kingdom Under Fire titles) who allied himself with Encablossa during the time he was stranded in the Dark Dimension (as depicted in Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom). The Azillan Kendal will also make a reappearance, who after his time in the Dark Dimension underwent a mutation, now able to control himself, he is out to stop Regnier. The game will also feature a brand new cast of playable characters, whilst other heroes from previous titles will return, which they are is yet to be confirmed.[3]

Characters[edit | edit source]

Kendal: Confirmed by Blueside to have a more important storyline than ever before. Kendal is an Ecclesian and has strong faith in the tenets of his faith. He wields a long hammer and mace and will no doubt use them in Kingdom Under Fire II. Now with a mutation, Kendal is powerful and his strength rivals that of Regnier's.

Regnier: Regnier has returned from the Dark Dimension and is now is partly mutated and thus his appearance has changed. He is much bigger and stronger than his former self and his powers match that of his former self, however they are more devastating now. Regnier can now overpower ogres completely, easily crushing their skulls with his foot. He uses a mutated version of his massive sword from the previous game.

Glen: Son of Gerald and Ellen, Glen is a quarter elf so he lives longer than Humans, it is because of this that Humans have come to hate him because he outlives them. Glen joined the army where he could be at home and his skills appreciated.

Isabella: Isabella is an albino dark elf who uses an ice like sword that freezes her foes. She is believed to be the new leader of the Kades. She took this leadership from Lucretia (from previous kingdom under fire titles)

Kenton: A dwarf with a white beard who wields a two handed axe weapon which also acts like a gun.[4]

Olivia: An elven officer with a calm manner who joins up with Glen.[5]

Development[edit | edit source]

According to information disclosed March 2, 2010, there has been significant obstacles concerning KUF II's development - a matter said to be "heatedly debated" within the Korean game industry. Blueside announced that some of its directors left the company who were not really involved in the development of KUF II project. Those people opened their own company called Inuka. The project they're working on has not been revealed yet. Meanwhile, in recent interview with Korean media, Blueside confirmed that the development of KUF II is still going strong, and they plan to do CBT of KUF II online in Q4 2010 in Korea.[6]
