By - | Views: 27,376

Odd Bug Studio are back with a fun announcement, as a sequel to their 2021 hit Tails of Iron is coming later this year with Tails of Iron 2: Whiskers of Winter. It will also have Native Linux support like the first game.

The game follows on from the brutal conclusion in the first game. In Whiskers of Winter players take up the mantle of Arlo – son of the Warden of the North – following a brutal attack by the Dark Wings, a new fanged threat from the frozen wastelands beyond.

  • An expanded campaign of violence and revenge – Whiskers of Winter’s ‘tail’ of Arlo’s fight against the ferocious Dark Wing Bats is an intense experience, featuring a semi open RPG world set across six varied biomes to explore, and new animal factions to discover.
  • Challenging combat – Building upon the series’ trademark hardcore combat, Tails of Iron 2 features enhanced weapons gameplay, including four elemental effects (fire, ice, electricity, and poison) to imbue Arlo’s arsenal with unique abilities to use against foes.
  • NEW Monster hunting gameplay – To tip the balance against the new fanged army of Dark Wing Bats, Arlo can track down and overcome 15 gigantic and challenging beasts to harvest their cadavers for rare upgrade materials.
  • Improved base building – Construct and upgrade the devastated settlement of Winter’s Edge to gain access to more powerful items from the smithy, tastier meals at the kitchen, a wider range of powerful traps from the shoppe, and more!
  • NEW Day and night system – Arlo will face different foes depending on the time of day, with more enemy types added as additional monsters are hunted down and vanquished.

“We are delighted to finally announce our return to Ratdom with Tails of Iron 2: Whiskers of Winter, and start a new ‘tail’ of bloodshed and medieval revenge. We wanted to build upon what we achieved with the first instalment and create a game that was more than just a straightforward sequel,” said Jack Bennett, Co-founder and Lead Designer, Odd Bug Studio. “We took on board the incredible community feedback on the original game and set about crafting a more intense experience than its predecessor. The new gameplay mechanics, the addition of monster hunting sidequests, together with improved crafting and base building, all work together to make Arlo’s crusade in the northern wastelands even more epic than King Redgi’s.”

You can follow it on Steam.

Off Topic: hey Liam, are you going to cover the new Contra game? It is already out and have a demo available. I'm curious to see how it works on the Steam Deck, since I found it to be on the heavy side for a side scroller.
Gotta say I love the title "Whiskers of Winter"

First game wasn't very well balanced: very hard at the start, relatively easy advancing into the story. Some boss fight were also very frustrating. Hope they fix these problem in this new one.
