Soul Reaver 2 coming next month

Eidos will release the PC version of its popular third-person action game in time for the holidays.


Eidos Interactive has announced that it will release the PC version of Soul Reaver 2 this November. The third-person action game, which has been promoted primarily as a Sony PlayStation 2 game, is a sequel to the 1999 action game Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, in which players assume the role of the vampire Raziel on a quest to defeat his nemesis, Kain. In the sequel, players will follow Raziel as he chases Kain back in time, and as they progress through the game, players will learn more about their character's past. The PC game was previously planned for release in the US only through OEM deals, but now will be released under an exclusive retail distribution agreement with Electronics Boutique and Babbages.

Soul Reaver 2 is scheduled for release next month for an approximate retail price of $49.99. For more information, take a look at our in-depth preview of the PlayStation 2 version of the game.
