Electronic Arts has today announced that it will publish Lionhead Studios' Black & White II. The game, which we recently took an 2911973exclusive look at in the UK, is the ambitious sequel to Lionhead's popular Black & White.

"Our relationship with EA spans many years and products, including the huge commercial and critical success of Black & White," said Peter Molyneux, managing director of Lionhead Studios. "The fresh approach of EA, coupled with our own dedication and determination to make Black & White II a truly epic game, should result in an unbeatable formula."

Black & White II, like the first game, is set in the world of Eden, but, because time has moved on and the numerous tribes that inhabit the land have started warring with each other, players will find that it's a very different land from the one they ruled over in Black & White. Players will also find that the land of Eden itself undergoes pronounced changes as a direct result of their actions.

Neither EA nor Lionhead have announced a release date for Black & White II. For more details, check out our previous coverage of the game.
