Dungeons 2 From Kalypso Media Due Out For Linux In April, First Game-play Shown

Posted by , | Views: 6,581
The Dungeon Lord is back – and this time he’s serious! In Dungeons 2, fulfil the Dungeon Lord’s insatiable quest for vengeance by recruiting fearsome new monsters from all corners of the underworld in order to undertake his evil bidding.

The developers have confirmed the release date for Dungeons 2 as the 24th of April, and to coincide with this they have released the first bit of game-play!

We don’t really have anything in the class of Dungeon Keeper on Linux, so I am awaiting this with major excitement, as I imagine some of you are too. I can’t wait to become an evil lord and kill all the humans!

They also confirmed pre-orders will start soon, and will include extra goodies for those that do. We don’t suggest you do it of course, as pre-orders often turn sour.

About the game (Official)
The Dungeon Lord is back – and this time he’s serious! In Dungeons 2, fulfil the Dungeon Lord’s insatiable quest for vengeance by recruiting fearsome new monsters from all corners of the underworld in order to undertake his evil bidding. Taking over the underworld isn't enough though – this time The Dungeon Lord will extend his dominion over the puny humans and attempt to conquer the overworld too!

Take control of the mighty Dungeon Lord and craft a network of unique and terrifying dungeons, recruit an army of fearsome creatures and command two new factions. Prepare to defend your Kingdom against those pesky heroes, go above ground to wage war on their human cities and use the ‘Hand of Terror’ to take direct control over your minions, issue commands, and even dish out a swift slap to keep them in line.

The extensive campaign story mode is packed with even more of the dark humour which made the original Dungeons a hit and is peppered with numerous references to various fantasy books, movies and TV shows. Additionally, you can test your strength in four different game modes in multiplayer for up to four players with other Dungeon Lords over LAN or online.

Will you be picking it up?

"We don’t really have anything in the class of Dungeon Keeper on Linux"

What about this? http://store.steampowered.com/app/230190/

Then you shouldn't count Dungeons 2 as it doesn't release until April 24th. War for the Overworld, however, releases on April 2nd

Release Date from FAQ

Also, WFTO is endorsed by Peter Molyneux himself: WFTO Endorsement

I love DK but I am not sure about Dungeons 2. I was pretty disappointed by Dungeons 1. War for the Overworld is pretty awesome though, played it for some hours so far and it definitely brings back the DK feeling + really nice graphics.

KeeperRL is awesome game AND it is open source - you can download the game and play it for free in ascii mode. If you purchase it, you will get full game (full game = free game + graphics + music)
