World Randomly Encounters Exciting New Sequel to Classic Old-school Title
STOCKHOLM — March 2, 2015 — Paradox Interactive, a publisher and developer with plenty of initiative, today announced the forthcoming release of Knights of Pen & Paper 2, coming to PC, iOS, and Android devices. Knights of Pen & Paper 2, the appropriately named sequel to Knights of Pen & Paper +1 Edition, will bring players back to the table, where they can sit and simulate another, different table inside the game (which is about a game). Danger, intrigue, death, role-playing, and roll-playing will return when Knights of Pen & Paper 2 arrives on May 14th.
Return to the dicey world of Knights of Pen & Paper for a new turn-based adventure, where players get to take on the role of players, and also of the game’s encounter-designing, rules-lawering GM in a fully customizable party. Assemble a group of virtual friends, dress them in class-specific hats, and take on an all-new series of quests, including dynamic dungeons, an improved combat system, new loot and crafting mechanics, and more, as the party faces its greatest challenge yet: the new edition of the ruleset.
Knights of Pen & Paper 2 rolls with the following features:
+2 to Impress: The retro adventure makes the leap from simulated 8-bit graphics to simulated 16-bit graphics, providing players with twice the bits
New Racial Feats: Customize your party members by choosing players such as the Goth or the Rocker, classes such as Wizard or Thief, and for the first time, races such as Dwarves and Elves
A Game of Throws: Face the whims of the d20 in an overhauled combat system, new crafting and loot, dynamically generated dungeons, and a variety of nail-biting saving throws
Entirely Too Many Gaming and Pop Culture Jokes: Seriously
“When you allow people at your company to dress up in wizard robes and suits of armor, sometimes you wind up with games like Knights of Pen & Paper 2,” said Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox Interactive. “We’re going to be showing off the game in person this week at GDC. I wanted to reveal it during the DICE conference, but nobody agreed with me.”
Spooky New Adventure is Loaded with Fun Content and is Still Completely Timely Despite Claims that Halloween is Over
Paradox, while announcing this update with a perfectly straight face, insisted that every day of the year (not just Halloween) is a good time for ghosts, and reminded the world that there's another pumpkin-related holiday right around the corner. Haunted Fall brings enough content to Knights of Pen & Paper to overload a festive candy bucket, including new monsters, items, areas, skills, and jokes.
Humble Bundle is offering a new cross-platform bundle that will appeal to PC and Android users alike. The PC and Android 9 bundle will include four games, with two more potentially getting tossed in, depending on how much you choose to pay.
We've seen that 2.09 still had some issues with achievements so we made this new patch for you.
- Achievements are now working (even indecisive person and the all classes one).
- Explorer achievement had an issue that people might had some problems to achieve and now its fixed.
- FRENCH LOCALIZATION (WOORRAY).
First of all I'd like to say I'm sorry that we've announced earlier the 2.09 patch. The patch is LIVE!
This is the patch you all were waiting for but besides the broken achievements fix, we are super happy because our publisher allowed us to REMOVE the microtransactions from our beloved game and now you may be able to love it even more.
This patch is for you that hated it so much that did not even bought the game or removed it from your shopping cart.
We listened to the community and we really hope you enjoy it.
And here is a photo of part of our crew so happy about it:
- Microtransactions removed! Yep, they are gone, forever!
- Group of Masters achievement fixed.
- The Explorer achievement fixed. (We are still taking a look at this one for old saves or you will probably need to revisit every place, but new saves should work now)
- Epic Potion achievement removed.
- Some other small bug fixes.
