What's happened since the release?

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!

Recensioni

“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.”

Informazioni sul gioco

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.

Warlock 2, come ogni buon strategico 4x, è un vortice che risucchia voracemente il tempo libero: la storia è già conosciuta, quel “un altro turno e poi smetto” che si protrae per numerosi giri di lancette, piccole o grandi che siano. L’antifona è sempre quella del primo episodio: anche questa volta, siamo alle prese con un figlio di Civilization, in particolare il quinto episodio, citato sia nell’interfaccia che nella meccanica a caselle esagonali.

Al posto di Bismark, Giulio Cesare e compagnia storica, comanderemo dei “Grandi Maghi”, differenziati tra loro per razza e caratteristiche – definite perk – in grado di dare bonus diversi tanto alla gestione dei vostri imperi quanto alle magie nel vostro arsenale. Eh sì, siete appunto dei “grandi maghi”, quindi potrete lanciare incantesimi di vario tipo, da quelli meramente offensivi ai classici buff e debuff, passando per le magie in grado di plasmare il territorio di gioco. [...]

la grande novità di Warlock 2, quella più sbandierata anche dal publisher, è la modalità Campagna, qui battezzata Exiled. L’Esiliato in questione è il giocatore, protagonista di una corsa tra i piani – perché il mondo di Warlock è diviso in diversi piani di esistenza, collegati da portali – che culmina nella riconquista di Ardania, tiranneggiata dal potente United One. Chi si aspettava una storia strutturata, magari ben narrata come quella degli strategici Blizzard, si troverà presto deluso: anzitutto, scegliere un “grande mago” piuttosto che un altro non cambia nulla, soprattutto in termini di storia; in seconda istanza, la trama imbastita è sostanzialmente un pretesto per indirizzare, tramite alcune missioni, le azioni del giocatore verso un fine prestabilito. Il passaggio “prescritto” tra i diversi portali è al contempo punto di forza e di debolezza della nuova modalità: non è possibile infatti conoscere in anteprima dove il passaggio mistico ci condurrà, se verso un placido mondo innevato, un territorio pieno di famelici draghi o il regno di un mago avversario intento a costruire il suo impero. Se da un lato ciò aumenta il gusto dell’esplorazione e la varietà delle partite, dall’altro causa un cattivo bilanciamento della difficoltà, essendo possibile incontrare anche nelle fasi iniziali creature ben più potenti dei timidi eserciti inzialmente disponibili.

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.

Warlock 2 is decent enough but for the asking price, it's too small an upgrade over the original. Another beef that I have with the game is that you spend FAR more time fighting against the endlessly spawning "wandering monsters" than you ever do against your fellow wizards and that brings an absurd amount of randomization into the overall strategy of the game. The endless spawning also tends to make things drag on in the end-game, long outlasting its welcome.

On the plus side, the game has a fine sense of humor and the visuals and audio are a treat (although it seems that much of the music was recycled from Warlock 1 as well).
