King’s Bounty II first launched for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam on August 24, 2021.
Here is an overview of the game, via PLAION:
Darkness descends over the world of Nostria. Conspiracies, sabotage, and necromancy are overshadowing the country. Counties are demanding independence, bandits prowl the roads, and rumors about the overwhelming power of Blight emerge from a whisper in the dark. The old King Claudius was poisoned and cannot lead the kingdom, and so his son, Prince Adrian, must now unite the struggling lands while his power and faith fall under attack. But maybe a savior—the kingdom’s last hope—is already here, to fight back and finally restore peace and order in Nostria?
King’s Bounty II allows players to pick one of three heroes – each with their own personality and unique skill set—and journey out into the fantasy world of Nostria. There is much to explore—from recruiting, developing, and commanding your personal army to venturing into a non-linear world full of betrayal, sacrifice, and survival. With big bustling towns, small hamlets, frozen wastes in the north, wide grasslands, and oppressive wetlands to brave, King’s Bounty II offers the largest open-world Fulqrum Publishing has ever created.
