Paradox Interactive today announced that wrongly exiled magicians and sorcerers everywhere can begin their quests to retake Ardania in Warlock 2: The Exiled, the turn-based strategy-fantasy wargame from Ino-Co Plus. Available today via digital retailers worldwide, Warlock 2: The Exiled challenges players to conduct wizardly warfare with a selection of magical creatures, devastating spells, and cunning strategy as they face off against their fellow Great Mages.
Community Announcements - Kalevalla
Journey back to the realm of Ardania, the land that cannot go an entire week without being conquered, and conquer it once again! Warlock 2 will challenge strategic sorcerers and megalomaniacal mages to conquer Ardania in an all-out war of cunning, combat, diplomacy, and excessively enormous fireballs. Single-player and multi-player gameplay will each challenge would-be warlocks to manage an entire realm full of deadly beasts, promising to make Warlock 2: The Exiled an exercise in constant war mongering and turn-based tragedy.

title="Permanent Link to Warlock 2: The Exiled screenshots tease fantasy civilization">Warlock 2







The danger for 4X strategies is that, inevitably, they'll be compared to Civilization. Although, to be fair, many games are openly inviting that comparison. Galactic Civilizations, which yesterday released its own set of screenshots, contains the word "Civilization" in its title, for instance. Then there's the fantasy 4X, Warlock 2: The Exiled, which has successfully differentiated itself by name, if not entirely by look. Judge for yourself, by browsing the game's first selection of screenshots.



First though, here's a sample of the game's feature list:





"Spelling Counts – Over 150 spells to add to your tome, allowing command over powerful enchantments, nasty hexes, and elemental forces

"A Crass Menagerie – Hundreds of different mythical and magical beasts to deploy on the battlefield with distinct tactical uses, from giant rats and dwarven prospectors to werewolves with hats on them

"Friendship is Magic – A multi-player experience as robust as the single-player experience, including PvP, Co-op PvE, and every combination in between

"Warlock 2: The Playstyles – Fight your way through the shards to reclaim Ardania in new ‘Exile’ mode or dispatch opponents the old-fashioned way in ‘Sandbox’ mode."





With that information seared into your eyeballs through arcane magicks, here be screenshots.



















Okay, to be fair, Civ 5 doesn't have Polar Giants.



And, if the game's anything like the first Warlock, it'll be a much more combat focused 4X, with its fantasy trappings increasing the chances for violent conflict and destructive spells.



Warlock 2: The Exiled is due out Spring 2014. For an earlier look, check out the Paradox Twitch.tv channel, which will be livestreaming the game from 7pm tonight.

"War. A wise man said it never changes," a gravely voice declares. "But he's dead. Eaten by a dragon in war." It's not easy to make a fun announcement trailer for a hexy turn-based strategy game, but publisher Paradox certainly has a fair crack at it with Warlock 2: The Exiled.

title="Permanent Link to Crusader Kings 2, War of the Roses and other Paradox games star in the Humble Weekly Sale">waroftheroses







And so it was that August 30th, 2013 did come to be known as the Day of The Deals. Internet denizens bravely descended on their stores, dodging pay-what-you-want here, and 75% off there. Could any make it through this budgetary gauntlet with their wallets unharmed? That, dear reader, is for you to find out...



Look, basically what I'm saying is there are a lot of cheap games today. The first of which is a staggeringly good Humble Weekly Sale featuring entrées from the Paradox plate.



Here's what's inside:





War of the Roses: Kingmaker

Warlock: Master of the Arcane

Leviathan: Warships

Dungeonland

The Showdown Effect

Europa Universalis III Complete





And, if you beat the average (currently at $5.80):





Crusader Kings II

Magicka





Taken as a full bundle, it's an absurdly good deal. Of the games that I've spent much time with: Crusader Kings II is an excellent strategy centred on lineage and intrigue, Magicka is a satisfying and funny co-op wizard-'em-up, and Warlock is a quick 'n light action-focused 4X. All of the others have reviewed reasonably well, too.



Alternatively, you could get "The Big Kahuna", which costs a flat $125, but comes with 48 games - essentially, all of the publisher's games, with the exception of Europa Universalis IV. The downside of that deal is that you also get Gettysburg: Armored Warfare, but it's okay, you can just ignore it.



The sale runs for another six and a bit days.
