What's happened since the release?

19 juin 2014

Q: What has happened since the release of Warlock 2?
A: A lot!

The shortest of short versions in this:

  • New game mode added: "Battle for the out planes"
  • The editors functionality has been expanded on request.
  • The AI has been improved over several iterations, most notably it's now much better at handling water & mountains.
  • Two new world types added to the world (Elven & Dremer worlds).
  • Monster spawn rate is now adjustable by the player.
  • By request, the optimal city count can now be turned on or off!
  • And of course: bugfixing where it was needed.
We are continuing to patch our baby, and we hope you like it as much as we do!

Articles

“Warlock 2 is an incredible well crafted game that is easy to bury hours into. Like any other good strategy game it can take some time to find the right strategy that will suit your play style, but that process of discovery is what makes these games so enticing.”
9/10 – Digitally Downloaded

“Warlock II might take place in a silly universe where narrators like to impersonate Sean Connery and kingdoms are ruled by regal rats or chatting skeletons, but Ino-Co has taken its construction very seriously. It’s exactly what a sequel should be, keeping the spirit of the original but improving every aspect.”
8/10 – PCGamesN

“Warlock 2 is definitely a step in the right direction – it takes everything that was good about the first game, and refines it a bit, while also leaving the original experience intact.”

À propos du jeu

The worlds have been shattered, and you have been exiled to one of these shards. The time has come to return to Ardania and seek vengeance on those who cast you out. Battle through the fractured realms inhabited by other exiles, hostile Mages and terrifying creatures. Once back in Ardania you will face your greatest threat: The United One and his four Vicars. Conquer all who oppose you, reclaim your home and take your revenge.

Warlock 2 is a turn-based strategy game of fantasy warfare. Rival against Great Mages, lead mighty armies into fierce battles, wield ancient magic and faith as your weapons. 

Experience the challenge in single or multiplayer. Play the new "The Exiled" mode or enjoy the game in the Sandbox mode.

Features


  • A fantasy wargame like no other – A diplomatic victory is not an option, you cannot relax until your enemies lie crushed under the might of your strategic brilliance! The turn-based hex maps gives you time to ponder your next move and your weapons are the vast armies that relentlessly march to conquer all that oppose you.

  • You are the Great mage – Select who you are from a roster of over a dozen Great Mages, all with different abilities and spells, and choose which people you command on your path to victory. If no Great Mage suits your taste you can even custom build your own from scratch.

  • Proudly wield your magical power – Not only a superb battlefield commander, your immense magical powers will also aid you in your conquest. Carefully research over 170 spells and choose what to specialize in, from direct attack spells to terraforming, or maybe align yourself to one of the Gods to harness their powerful blessings. With time, you are even capable of customizing each spell using powerful glyphs.

  • Diverse worlds requires different approaches – The several different and randomly generated maps all have their unique challenges and opposition to defeat. Use the terrain to your advantage!

  • Different campaigns – Choose from either engaging your foes on a grand map in the sandbox game mode or the path of the Exiled, a revenge tale full of twists and turns, where you strike back at those who banished you from the world of Ardania.

  • Raise armies – The people you lead and conquer all bring their unique units to your command. Choose if you want to field a stalwart Human army, command the Undead hordes, use the mysterious Planestriders, or mix and match them all plus others to your delight. There are a total of six different races to pick from, each with their own strengths and weaknesses.

  • Hire heroes – When your reputation grows, random heroes will be attracted to your cause, bringing with them their own special flavor to add to battles. Equip them with legendary artifacts, found or crafted, and make them your battlefield commanders.

J'aime beaucoup la série des civilization, et je considérais plus Warlock premier du nom comme un "mod standalone", mais Warlock 2 est vraiment fun.
L'univers est prenant ( avec des petites pointes d'humour ), pas forcément originale, mais finallement peu exploité en ce moment. Certains le compare avec Age of Wonders III, que je trouve beaucoup plus lents, et finallement moins prenant.

Les combats reprennent les bases de civlizations 5 en exploitant le terrains et autres, et la gestion est un peu plus simple ( pas de route, ni de gestion des citoyens ). Par contre l'ajout de la magie qui remplace les technologies, est un gros plus et peu donner un atout inconsidérable en combat. Qui plus est, ils ont vraiment travailler sur la modification du territoire qui peu parfois être VRAIMENT surprenante ( voir le trailer de démo, nottament avec l'apparition du volcan en plein milieu d'un lac ).

Les différentes race sont très sympas, et permettent une approche différentes du combats. Certains préférerons les monstres qui produisent de nombreuses unités, d'autres préférerons les Svarts avec leurs unités blindé impressionnantes.
D'ailleur la possibilité de créer son mage avec sa race et perks custome est vraiment cool.
Bref. Du gros fun en vue, pas mal d'explorations. Je conseil vivement ce jeu, surtout en multijoueurs avec quelques amis, et je regrette vraiment que la communauté du jeu ne sois pas plus fournie.

Petit bémole : 1er lancement en multi laborieux. Il faut d'abord rentrer son mail / mot de passe, cliquer sur create, ANNULER, puis se relog. Cela vas ensuite Crash, et la, ENFIN, on pourras créer son mage et jouer en multijoueurs.

C'est un bouffe temps au même titre que Civilization ou Master of magic pour les anciens.
Maintenant, je met un bémol, c'est moins beau qu'un civilization 5, ils ne se sont pas foulés des masses.
Les cinématiques sont ultra ultra minimalistes.
La difficulté est très mal réglé, j'ai joué avec 5 mages, il n'y en a pas 1 qui m'a attaqué ou qui était un peu tatasse.
et pourtant, je jouais à une difficulté normale.
La fin est comme civilization 5, baclée.

1ere partie, 20h de jeu.
Je n'ai pas rencontré de difficultés majeures, Il y a de nombreux sorts mais pas comme Master of magic.
De nombreuses races mais pas autant qu'on pouvait l'esperer
De nombreux choix de persos mais pas autant qu'esperer.

De plus le jeu est en VO intégral.
Le mode histoire est ultra minimaliste et les quêtes sont trop peu nombreuses et vraiment accéssoires

I have a soft spot for the original Warlock in spite of its many failings (poor AI, poor play balance and numerous bugs). But I cannot recommend this new release. It is basically window dressing on the old game without addressing any of its faults. Aside from the revamped spell research, nothing that couldn't be provided in DLC. Oh it's got more, more pictures, more units and two new races. If you don't mind paying $30 (or $40) for your DLC then hop on board. But if you were looking to address the fundamental issues (above) then don't waste your time and money.

There is actually one group I can recommend it to and that is those that liked the Armaggedon DLC. They didn't fix the pathing or the horrible NPC AI. (I think the monster AI got some tweaks) But their solution to those looking for a challenge is to introduce a whole slew of tough Spirit damage dealing monsters and unload wave after wave of monster spawns; very much in the spirit of Armaggedon. The larger your territory the larger your clean-up issues. As a plus you don't have to worry about your actual economy since the frequent spawns will keep you swimming in gold and mana.

This game is Warlock 1 with an expansion pack. It has more races, more building and unit options, and an improved interface but they aren't really enough to make it a game in its own right. The main scenario is interesting but it suffers from the issue that many strategy games do where they compensate for the AI being a bit dumb by throwing huge numbers of units at you instead. As you approach the finale, 10 or so high level units randomly spawn across your lands every turn making that part of the game a frustrating grind.

Basically not enough new content to justify a new game, I would stick with Warlock 1.

I've put in 8 hours and want to play more, so there's no doubt that this is a good game, nevertheless I can't help but feel a little cheated. Almost everything about this game is an improvement on the previous game (Warlock master of the arcane), but it isn't enough to justify it being a whole new game for this price. From what I've seen so far this could have just been a big dlc/add on/expansion, or something the modding community worked hard on.
I suppose the best example that comes to mind is XCOM: Enemy unknown and XCOM: Enemy within. There's enough difference between the two for it to be an expansion, but not a whole new game.

Please don't misunderstand, this is a good game but if you already own Warlock master of the arcane, I'd say wait until this goes on sale before you pick it up.

P.S. this is early access, so there might be enough in the full release to justify a whole new game. Also I've only played 8 hours, there might be more that I just haven't come across yet.
