Kingdom Under Fire II (screenshot heavy)
« on: November 22, 2011, 04:32:28 AM »
So recently I've been getting pretty anxious about the release of Star Wars The Old Republic. MMO's are a big commitment in my mind and I've been almost on the fence on whether or not to even play it at all. Then I discovered this game.


Kingdom Under Fire II is a MMOARTSRPG, or Massive Multi-player Online Action Real-Time Strategy Role-Playing Game (mouthful), game being developed by the Korean company BLUESIDE and is slated to go public in Korea in 2011, then later next year for us. In the game you choose to play for one of 3 factions: Human Alliance, Dark Legion and Encablossa, as (I believe) one of eighteen classes. Three of which have been revealed. The battle only begins there, however, as you group with people to create parties and team together to begin conquering the continent. Many siege weapons are also at your disposal from towers to catapults and beyond. From there you can join a Guild, then a Guild Alliance, and ultimately a Nation. Or you can choose not to.

That is only the start of it however, to quote IGN:

Pull your perspective back from the hero and you'll see the troops at his disposal. Kingdom Under Fire II boasts 300 different troop types to recruit that will fight alongside you. These troops possess their own set of levels and skills, whether they're simple infantry or heavy artillery. During battle, you can zoom out with just a touch of a button and command multiple groups of soldiers at once, selecting targets and activating skills at will.

When you're not busy slaying your opponent or improving your character otherwise you will be in town recruiting troops for your own army. From all of those I've read about previous Kingdom Under Fire games they all seem to be solid and fun experiences. A few complaints we're related to how gory one of the previous games was  :schierke: . So as I do my research I sit back and appreciate the time I took to reconsider what's out there on the market and what I want to dedicate my time doing game-wise in the possible foreseeable future.

Has anyone else heard about this series or this game in particular? Would love to hear some feedback on this.

Extended Trailer shown at G-Star 2011 - apparently it was playable also

Looking at the screenshots alone, I'd wager I'd need a serious rig to run it. Does look cool though.

Looks pretty good (the half-naked elf chick with sentient boobs had me rolling my eyes though), but I don't really have time for anything MMO related these days.
