Kingdom Under Fire 2, the long delayed entry in a much-loved franchise, rolled out in the west under the Gameforge banner last November, a mashup of an MMORPG and an RTS. Since the launch, it’s pushed out two updates, and now it’s onto its third, dubbed Grave of Time after the game’s latest raid; it’s an 8-person dungeon crawl aimed at level 30 players who’ve beaten Scouraged Mountain. The update also includes new mounts and gear, improved reward drops, a balancing pass for underpowered units and hero abilities, and a new “dimensional test” mission too:
“Quests of higher difficulty are in store for players who accept them from Yuri in Accolade! Three units dive into 50 levels of fierce enemies that must be demolished — but be warned — once destroyed, units cannot be resurrected! But the challenge is worth it — for every five levels, players will receive a special reward once a day after the challenge is complete. Do you have the mettle to survive all 50 levels?”
Happily, the game is half off on Steam right now, and the game is running a free-to-play event starting today and running through February 24th.
We gave the game a long look in our Not So Massively column last December, finding its swap between RTS and MMO gameplay fun and its combat excellent – but the poor localization and polish were an irritant for sure.
