Strategy First and Nival Interactive have today announced the North American release of Etherlords II. The original Etherlords released in 2001 was a turn-based strategy game, but the sequel also incorporates a number of features more commonly associated with role-playing games.
"Etherlords II is the only sequel we have released that has actually changed genres," said Serge Orlovsky, president of Nival Interactive. "This kind of radical change wouldnt have been possible without the great amounts of feedback we received from the fans of the original, which helped immensely in creating a spectacular combination of role-play and card-based tactical combat."
Etherlords II features five story-driven campaigns, new multiplayer gameplay modes, and a map editor. For more information on Etherlords II, check out our previous coverage of the game.
