Arxel Tribe has recently announced that it has secured the publishing and distribution rights to Nival Interactive's Etherlords II for most European countries. The countries covered by the deal include Benelux, Croatia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Slovenia, Austria, Switzerland, and the UK.
"Etherlords II sets a whole new standard in turn-based gaming. It is an exciting mix of role-play and tactical turn-based combat in the best tradition of fantasy trading card games," said Gregory Pichon, Arxel Tribe's acquisition manager. "Five campaigns lead you through a richly detailed 3D adventure with a deep and twisted plotline, while fantastic duels test your tactical skills and cunning. The RPG gameplay lets you guide your hero through each campaign while his experience and skills increase, fully interacting with other characters and creatures of the world. The game offers an enormous tactical variety and the graphics, in full 3D, are awesome."
Etherlords II, which is scheduled for release in North America in August, will be released in Europe in multiple languages sometime in the fourth quarter of this year. For more information on Etherlords II, check out our previous coverage of the game.
