Two Worlds II's twisting path to release is nearly complete. TopWare Interactive today confirmed a January 25 release date for the fantasy role-playing game in North America, Ireland, and the UK. Additionally, the company confirmed that publishing partner SouthPeak Interactive had relinquished the UK and Irish publishing rights to TopWare.
The news is the latest in a series of unusual twists involving Two Worlds II and apparent issues between its publishing partners. The game had been expected to launch in September, but SouthPeak delayed it, suggesting at the time that the extra months would be used to polish the product. TopWare took exception to that, announcing that the game was completed and ready for sale, but SouthPeak was holding back the release to avoid fourth-quarter competition in the RPG space. (The game has already launched in some European markets, where TopWare said it sold more than 1 million copies in less than three weeks on shelves.)
First announced as an expansion pack in 2007, Two Worlds II was initially scheduled for an early 2008 release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. However, the fantasy role-playing game then picked up full sequel status, as well as multiple delays.
Two Worlds II picks back up with the original's hero, after having languished in prison for a number of years. Gamers find themselves first confronting the nefarious Gandahar (the villain from the original), before setting out on a new quest to save the world. The game also includes new cooperative multiplayer modes, where players can work together to build cities or team up to undertake a dozen story-driven quests.
