Update 5 - Survival Expansion



Hey Everyone,

We are back with another massive update. This time around we looked into adding plenty of new content, as well as fixing and improving things across the board. The main feature of this update is expanded Survival mode.

The undead now come in different forms and require the player to use different tactics to defeat them! There are now seven types of undead to battle in survival mode. Besides the addition of these new minions, each minion has been rebalanced to serve a specific purpose in which will create a diverse battlefield. Additionally, all statistics were balanced to increase the difference between easy, medium and hard modes.

Keep in mind that you will need to update the game in order to continue playing in online mode.

Thanks again for supporting the game - please consider leaving us some feedback on the forums or review sections. We`d love to hear from you what we are doing right, and what still needs out attention.

We are looking forward to staying in touch with you on our forums.

And so introducing Update # 5:


SURVIVAL EXPANSION
  • Wave 1+ Zombies: Zombies are the most common form of undead. While they are quite harmless by themselves, they are very deadly in numbers. Zombies are very weak to slashing attacks.
  • Wave 3+ Skeleton Thanes: Skeleton Thanes have lower health than Zombies but do significantly more damage. They have a very high resistance to pierce damage and are almost invulnerable to fire damage. Skeletal Thanes are very weak to crushing attacks.
  • Wave 6+ Zombie Ogres: Zombie Ogres have high health and aim to destroy your walls and gates. They have all around low resistances. It is advised that you destroy them either by range or melee before they reach your walls!
  • Wave 9+ Skeleton Warriors: Skeleton Warriors have average health but are near invulnerable to piercing and fire damage. The best way to defeat these minions is to send your warriors out to meet them in battle.
  • Wave 12+ Demonic Minotaurs: Demonic Minotaurs have high health and do high damage but do little to walls. They have mostly lower resists other than a little higher resistance to slashing damage. It is recommended you weaken them with archers before facing them in melee due to their higher damage!
  • Wave 15+ Skeleton Archers: Skeleton Archers have very low health but are highly resistant to piercing damage and are near invulnerable to fire damage. Skeleton Archers deal high damage and it would be wise to make sure they do not linger long outside of your walls.
  • Wave 20+ Zombie Behemoths: Zombie Behemoths have the highest health of all undead. They have lower resists apart from an increased resist to crushing damage. They can decimate your gates if you let them knock at your door. Use everything you must to keep these minions at bay!

FIXES AND ADDITIONS
  • Arrows now track moving targets
  • Survival now has six new minions that spawn
  • Additional performance improvements
  • Survival is now an Iron Man mode. When you are defeated you must start over
  • Fixed issue with Skeleton Archers ammo

  • The Stronghold upgrade for Humans is now properly locked until researched
  • Fixed bug that would sometimes cause statistical issues in Survival
  • Ogres now move to the player base when spawned

BALANCING

  • The Undead no longer heal at town wells
  • There is a greater difference between the difficulties in Survival
  • Fixed an exploit used to receive gems in Skirmish
  • Fixed a save game exploit used to receive gems in Survival

About This Game

Kingdom Wars 2: Definitive Edition is an intense real-time strategy game set in a dark fantasy world of Orcs, Elves and Dragons. It combines the best of Zombie survival and long term crafting with complex fast-paced city building. Engage in skirmish siege combat that turns beautiful landscapes into gory blood-soaked battlefields.

Completely Redesigned

The original Kingdom Wars 2 has been reworked and redesigned from the ground up. With new engine, sweet new graphics, and a total update of presentation, and interface. This is not just a high definition version, but a new gameplay experience.

The Great Races

The game is focused on the dominant races of Humans, Elves and Orcs with each able to recruit from other races depending on the alliances, techs and buildings they have available. Among the other races you will find scurrying Goblins, lumbering Ogres, mighty Minotaurs, ancient Treants, magical Dragons, crafty Dwarves, and fearsome Skeletal Warriors.

Heroes and Wizards

Each of the great races can recruit a variety of Heroes each with their own abilities to bolster their allies or decimate their foes. The three Orders of Wizards have also each aligned themselves with one of the great races, and use their vast magical power to shift the course of battle with terrifying Lightning Storms and devastating Blizzards.

Story-driven Campaign

Play an epic story-driven singleplayer campaign combining engaging cinematic narrative and original gameplay to determine the fate of the three great races as they try to survive in a world engulfed by total war after they fall out of favour with the gods.

Skirmish Battle

Engage in the complex city building and economy of a fast paced skirmish environment as you gather resources, construct buildings, reinforce walls and train troops before being swept up in field and siege battles with up to four players or AI. Craft the right Techs and Cards, and perfect your strategy and play style to ensure that victory is yours.

Survival Mode

The dead have risen and are marching towards your settlement with blood-thirsty determination. How long can you survive when your own dead bolster the ranks of the enemy if you don't burn the bodies quickly enough? Go it alone to prove your mettle as you play in solo mode or share in the struggle by inviting a friend to co-op mode.

Siege Combat Mechanics

Attackers can demolish gates with Battering Rams, scale walls with Ladders and Siege Towers, bombard the defenders and breach walls with Trebuchets and Dwarven Cannons. Meanwhile the defenders can hold the gates with boiling Oil Pots, skewer the advancing hordes with hidden Spike Traps, crush their enemies with Stone Tippers, and more. Set the battlefield ablaze with flame throwing Dragon's Breath machine, cower the moving shield that is the Mantlet, and mow down your enemies with the spinning blades of the Grinder.

Complex Crafting System

Every battle gives a chance to collect crafting items ranging from the common Tools and Blueprints to the rare Legendary Weapons and Tomes of Magic. Crafting is tied into every aspect of the game, from crafting new deadly siege weapons and units buildings, to creating new game cards, or researching new industrial technologies.

Tech Tree

Each of the great races has their own Tech Tree to unlock and research using various combinations of crafting items, providing opportunities for management and long-term strategic thinking as you unlock your ideal set of buildings, units and abilities to ensure victory in battle.

Strategic Card Game

You can build various combinations of playable card decks that you acquire through crafting that you use during battle to give extra resources, provide re-inforcements or call upon magical effects. You will need to think strategically about which cards to take into battle and tactically about when to use them, as playing the right card at the right time can shift the tide of battle.

Online Community

Use the chat channels to make friends, get help and arrange battles. Join guilds and alliances to show your allegiance and gain extra rewards. Invite your friends to co-op battle together and challenge your enemies to battle.
