v2.2 Update for Sorcerer King: Rivals is Now Available

New Units, Improved Balance, and More in the Sorcerer King: Rivals v2.2 Update



Prepare for your war against the Sorcerer King with some brand new units! Some leaders now have unique starting units that change the dynamic of how you play when you start a new game. Some balance updates, including world generation adjustments and default zoom levels, have also been added!

What's new in v2.2:

Game Updates
  • Default "zoom out" level before moving to the cloth map has been increased.
  • Units now use the unit display name instead of the generic display name. This doesn't change any gameplay, but it makes it a lot easier for modding.
  • World generation is set up to allow more fertile tiles to be free of bandits, which makes expansion a little easier.
  • Final battles for Priestess, Tinkerer, Tyrant, Undead, and Wizard are now substantially more lethal.

New Units
  • Mounted Scout (Commander)
  • Friendly Shrill (Guardian)
  • Spearman (Commander)
  • Mystic (Priestess)
  • Scoutling (Tyrant)
  • Clockwork Soldier (Tinkerer)

Sorcerer King: Rivals is available on Steam or through Stardock.

About This Game

Never the same game twice

You have risen to lead an up and coming civilization in magical land of Elemental. Your village lives in the shadow of one of the precious shards of magic. It also possesses something unique in all the world -- the Forge of the Overlord. This powerful artifact allows its user to craft magical items and equipment.


Armed with the Forge of the Overlord, your people look to you to challenge the malevolent Sorcerer King, a being who has devastated the land and filled it with ruins and minions.

Unknownst to him, you have learned the Spell of Ascension that will allow you to channel the magic of the shards and enable you to ascend to a being of nearly unlimited power who can set the world free (or destroy it).

But you are not alone. Other civilizations are rising while the Sorcerer King schemes in his distant fortress. They too have their own plans…
