King’s Bounty II gets new, foreboding trailer ahead of August release

Nintendo Switch August release date 1C Entertainment Koch Media Unite Them or Fall story trailer King's Bounty II

Developer 1C Entertainment has released a new story trailer for King’s Bounty II ahead of its Aug. 24, 2021 release date on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game is an RPG with tactical turn-based battles and three different heroes with their own unique stories, and the gameplay involves recruiting and commanding your army amid story- and choice-driven events. King’s Bounty II is kind of a sequel to King’s Bounty: The Legend, which released back in 2008. Here’s a description of the story to expect this time around:

Darkness descends over the world of Nostria. Conspiracy, sabotage and necromancy are overshadowing the country. Counties are demanding independence, bandits prowl the roads and rumors about the overwhelming power of Blight emerge from a whisper in the dark. The old king Claudius was poisoned and cannot lead the kingdom and so his son, Prince Adrian, must now unite the struggling lands while his power and faith fall under attack. But maybe a savior – the kingdom’s last hope – is already here to fight back and finally restore peace and order in Nostria.

King’s Bounty II has been in development for four years with a team of 150 developers. There are more than 200 unique characters, a dynamic soundtrack, and a 200,000-word script, which should add up to more than 50 hours of gameplay. Let us know if you have your eye on this one.
