Update 1.9 - Preview and Details

Dear Players,

The team is once again back to work on the next big KW2B update, that we are aiming to release towards the end of October.

With update 1.9 we looked at working exclusively on player suggested fixes, and expect to have a very impressive list of updates and squashed bugs.

We plan to cover every area of the game - from increasing population limit in Survival and fixing large number of saved game and Elven units issues to upgrading Treasure Guarding Dragon AI from a village idiot to an evil mastermind... (Or at least Zombie smart...)

Every single suggestion posted by our players over the past 3 months has been carefully considered, and we hope that over half of your requests and suggestions will make it into the patch.

In addition 1.9 comes with completely balancing overhaul - based on our experience and players feedback over the past few months. Our goal is to make every single unit more unique, and get rid of the "useless" units. You can expect the less used units to get boost and new roles, and more commonly used units to see a small downgrade.

Also please accept our apologies for the delays with the update, the team has been working on something big past couple of months - something that we can`t announce yet - but that should make every KW2B player and fans of Medieval warfare very happy (we`ll make sure of that)...

The long awaited update 1.8, has just been released. After an unfortunately lengthy interruption this summer, our team is back to work on Kingdom Wars 2: Battles with one update after another planned in the coming months. Our main focus with today`s massive 1.8 update was to improve pathfinding, combat, and playability.

Few things of note - we have eliminated delay when tasking units both in singleplayer and multiplayer as well as reworked our research and buttons to fix various issues effecting saved game. We hope everything goes smoothly with this update.

Our next update will be ready later on in August and will continue featuring minor new features and improvements across the board. If you have any suggestions for our next update, please take a moment to post them here:

Reading through the reviews, and with the hindsight of now playing the game... i think people are giving this game more credit than it deserves due to the small but responsive dev team. The actual gameplay is a VERY dumbed down age of empires meets a VERY dumbed down Stronghold. Tactics consists of smashing piles of units together or hiding behind premade fortifications you can click on to "build". No designing here.

I won't pretend this is a comprehensive review, but I was so bored so quickly with the gameplay, I couldn't be bothered to see if there was more deeper somewhere.

UN RTS D'ASSEDIO E ZOMBIE OPZIONALI (Kingdom Wars II: Battles) - Novità
Io non amo gli RTS, eppure qualcuno mi piace lo stesso. Perché? Questo Kingdom Wars II: Battles per esempio, perché con la storia degli assedi aggiunge un asimmetria molto interessante, nonostante i limiti tecnici oggettivi del gioco.

An RTS that left me playing over and over again, the tech system definately made me want to play the game constantly seeing what new things I could unlock and the card system brought a good extra level of thought into the game.

Also the quotes are hilarious for the peasants.

(Original Review)

Still a bit sparse and kind of dull to play. Not sure what I'm missing here, but it doesn't seem like a very intriguing game as it stands. Will check back regularly to see improvements, patches, and addons, but I don't find it keeping my interest in it's current state.

(/Original Review)


I WILL recommend either buying this game, or keeping your eye on this game, purely based on the fact these developers go way above and beyond to try and get everyone to enjoy it. Publicly, my old review was not agreed upon and I don't mind that. But that didn't even stop these devs from contacting me to let me know they're making changes and improvements, and even personally informing me of a new expansion coming. I'm definitely going to put this on my regular checklist of perpetually updated games.

I may not enjoy the game like I do for others, but the developers are top notch - something you don't see more often enough with vidya these days. I hope you guys keep the professional attitude and personal touch in the future. It puts you way above a lot of other devs, and it's something we game enthusiasts really need.

Thanks, guys! Can't wait to see what's to come.

Posted: October 5, 2015
what i once thought XD:

the game crashes on start up often and once in a single player game against 1 AI Orc, the game will %100 crash everytime...

but then..

something happened..

the developer of KW2B actually spoke out to me saying that "we are sorry and it has been fixed"
I LOVE THAT !!!!! a developer actually talked to a unhappy customer (BTW great customer service 1+)

(Dev Konstantin [developer] 22 hours ago

I invite you to try the game again, as last night we have fixed all of the issues you`ve experienced, and sorry to hear about this terrible experience.

And to explain what happened - we`ve released a massive patch on Thursday, and due to a lot of new features, a few crushing bugs appeared. But by Sunday evening we had all of these crashes fixed. I know it`s not a good excuse, but for a small team we couldn`t catch all the crashes ourselves before releasing this massive update.

I hope to see you come back to give the game another chance, and sorry that your first experience with the game was during the two days that we had all these crashing problems.)

ive seen so many games that i have backed only to be left to rot in page 2358 on the steam store and this one AINT one.

so the dev team left a few bugs, but their small and that is to be expected! and the repair patch came out moments later so im left happy! :D

Posted: March 3
The Game is a pleasant mix of the Total War games and Age of Empires games. The game has come a long way, and even though it still has a long way to go, the journey has been a decent one. The Dev team has only four members working on the game and they work hard as they listen to the player's suggestions. The Fantastic Four have been working really hard to make this game better from the many suggestions that players have given them, and This can only get better from this point, fingers crossed.

The game ofcourse has some pros and cons so without further ado, lets get into them:

-Combat Feels similar to Total War; Units have formations and most have special abilities.
-Heroes/Champions are characters that can be unlocked via cards or technology advancements
-In game Crafting System that allows the player to choose which technology to research as they unlock features for their
favourite faction.
-Three Diverse and interesting factions to choose from. From the Mighty Orcs to the Humble Elves. And if you want to
specialise in both offense and defense, Humans are the faction for you.
-Base Building has a nice bit of Nostalgia embedded into it, as they are pleasantly similar to the awesome Age of
resource collection/management system the games are so well known for; Has the feel of playing the classic AoE
-Graphics are decent, but they're decent enough.
-Zombies rise as corpses are left to rot

-The game has some bugs but they're not really game-breaking, fixes are on the way!
-At the moment, pvp is a possibility, but sometimes its difficult to find players because of the low player count. It'll only
get better from here on, (fingers crossed)

And that's about it! I don't think I missed anything as of yet, feel free to correct me if I have.

overriced pice of ♥♥♥♥♥. the first part was good till the dev decided to patch and update it to crap so it wasn't good anymore... the first part was good untill 2013. then it realy became just ♥♥♥♥ he continued to always patch more crap in nobody liked and that made the game just ♥♥♥♥. even while nearly everyone hated in and then stoped playing he didn't gave a ♥♥♥♥ and in the forums it was even said more times. he didn't fixed it back or anything in fact he made more ♥♥♥♥ and then came up with the crap to make it f2p to get palyers again lol. and the guys who bought it got 30 days premium and their progress which they had... yeahhh thanks. if i hadn't got kingdom wars 2 for free i would have never even played it lol. now this part is eh maybe it's playable but simply not how it used to be. the survival can be fun tho but clearly overpriced for what it is in my opinion.
