Developer Blueside and publisher Gameforge are dropping Kingdom Under Fire 2 for western players today, treating us to a new entry in a franchise that hasn’t been tinkered with much in the last decade, at least on this side of the Pacific. Gameforge says the studios worked to “take an already fantastic game to the finish line,” and folks, it’s been a long race indeed: It was first revealed in 2008 for a 2009 launch here, only to land in Asia in 2010 and then… nothing. Now, 10 years later, we’re getting something.

The game is alternately described as an MMORPG and RTS title; it’s more accurately a mash-up of both, with a 3-D setting and visceral hack-and-slash class-based combat but also an RTS mode whereby you can control your troops “in epic PvP battles featuring thousands of units.”

“Kingdom Under Fire 2 is set in a world where three powerful factions—the Human Alliance, Dark Legion, and Encablossians— compete for control over the land of Bersia. Players can choose from several hero classes and focus on building up their individual characters or command massive armies as war strategists. Kingdom Under Fire 2 takes place 50 years after the events of Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders and features an immersive story-driven online campaign, playable solo or multiplayer.”

Do note, it’s a buy-to-play title, with packages available on the game’s official website starting at $29.99, with cosmetics, currency, mounts, and whatnot. It’ll also be live on Steam soon, though it’s not buyable yet as we type this.

Bought it and regret it. The game plays like something from 2008.

It began development 12 years ago so you’re not too far off the mark.

Interesting, combat system looks more like action hack and slash mmo rather than your typical RTS

Small correction, the price is listed as $29.99 for the basic package right now, not $39.99.

Just reading over the packages, it sounds rather P2W. Repair, upgrade, and revival tokens for real money. Anyone actually played it that can comment on the monetization? Because I loved the old Kingdom Under Fire, and was hoping this would be a good game, but not if it’s going to play like a crappy mobile game that’s constantly reminding you “Hey, pay some money to bypass all these timers!”

Those items you actually get in game for free by just playing. You get a currency and can buy the items that included in those packs with it. You can not buy them with cash. The only available items for money in their cash shop are only cosmetic at the moment.
