King’s Bounty II, a direct sequel to King’s Bounty: The Legend, returns the player to the world of Antara, as darkness descends once again. The country of Nostria is suffering from conspiracies, sabotage, and necromancy but you’ll take control of a saviour ready to fight back and restore peace and order in Nostria!
King’s Bounty II, the long-awaited sequel to the King’s Bounty franchise, puts you in charge of recruiting, developing, and commanding your own army in a non-linear adventure. As with its predecessor, that means tough turn-based combat, making difficult narrative decisions, and engaging with deep role-playing elements as you develop your hero units.
King’s Bounty II is currently available to pre-order – digital and physical – for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (backward-compatible on the PS5 and Xbox Series consoles) and on PC (Steam and Epic Games Store). Nintendo Switch fans can currently find physical copies available with digital pre-orders coming soon.
It’s not the most consumer-friendly approach, and you’ll have to pick between the “Day One Edition Pack” – digital and physical – with a bunch in-game items to get your started (and a theme for PS4 owners based on the game’s artwork), or the digital-only “Lord’s Edition” that comes with it’s own set of exclusive in-game items.
The “Duke’s Edition” – only available on Steam and Epic Games Store – is the best of the bunch of you’re on PC, offering the same content as the Lord’s Edition but also an exclusive digital artbook and the King’s Bounty II OST.
Finally, for those who love physical collector’s editions (and have the budget), there’s the massive King Collector’s Edition, featuring a real King’s crown, a double-sided poster, a 36-page hardcover artbook and the soundtrack.
King’s Bounty II should launch on PC and consoles August 24 this year.
