Kalypso Media, publisher of the Tropico series, has announced Dungeons 2, a sequel to its dungeon management simulation game from 2011.

Much like the classic game Dungeon Keeper from Peter Molyneux, Dungeons 2 asks you to build a network of dungeons, recruit an army of evil minions that you can keep in line by slapping them around with your Hand of Terror, and defend your dungeon from invading heroes. A new addition to Dungeons 2 is the ability to take your armies above ground, and fight the humans in more traditional real-time strategy battles.

The game will feature a single player campaign with two playable factions, 26 unique creatures, and multiple types of heroes and game modes.

Dungeons 2 is being developed by the creators of the original game, Realmforge Studios, and is set to release in 2015 for the PC, Mac, and Linux.

Kalypso also released a CGI announcement trailer, but you'll get a better feel for the game by checking out the screenshots below.

The Dungeon Keeper series, which is owned by Electronic Arts, is still around in the form of a free-to-play mobile game. Unfortunately, it was heavily criticized for its in-app purchases, prompting EA CEO Andrew Wilson to admit that the company "misjudged" the game's economy.
