Images of Kingdom Under Fire II

After the forgettable action-RPG spin-off "Circle of Doom", the south-korean developer Blue Side unveils the somptuous first images of Kingdom Under Fire II, real sequel to the original Xbox game. KUF II will return to its action-STR roots, as well as some new MMO elements. The game is planned to be released on Xbox 360 and PC when it's done.

It used to ! It's now called KUF II to avoid sounding like a spin-off since it's the real sequel to Crusader.

I have a really hard time believing the graphics will be that great.

Looks fantastic! The two KuF games on the Xbox were nothing short of incredible strategy epics. I really hope this one delivers.

This whole thing- announcement and images- was released on Kotaku this morning and according to THAT article- this is an MMORTS and it's PC only. So... who's got it right?

The Kotaku article came from Eurogamer.net and it says. "Kingdom Under Fire II is due out on PC and consoles in 2009."

Kotaku is wrong. The game has been in development for the 360 for quite some time. KUF: CoD was also slated for PC though and it didnt make it.

Kotaku is rarely right, don't use them as a source of information.

Wow, that's extremely impressive.


It looks better than most games, much less an mmo game.

Jigen, godhandiscen and Kethmach.... can you guys read? The Kotaku article says nothing about it being PC only, and they also said its going to bring the franchise back to its roots and then some with an all new, massively multiplayer version of Kingdom Under Fire a MMOARTS (Massively Multiplayer Online ACTION Real-Time Strategy Game), which Gamersyde also pretty much described same way: "KUF II will return to its action-STR roots, as well as some new MMO elements." I think snoopers must of misspelled action-RTS roots "action-STR roots", but whatever.

It's going to have a single player campaign and a multiplayer part to it. It's not just an MMO.

Totally agree. Kotaku is often just a collection on copypaste articles, which often don't hold true.

Holy moly, this game looks good. Wow, fantastic. Like it, want it...

Excellent! The two xbox1 titles pushed the system quite nicely, and I am sure this will do the same! Draw distance should be improved too (no more Dynasty Warriors-style fogging!). Very nice.

KUF sucks ass. Returned "Heroes" to GameFly on the same day it arrived in the mail.

Did they confirm it was going to be on the 360?

drools and runs out the door TO KOREA!! lol, this just looks sexy. the kuf on original xbox were just amazing games, and this could be just AA material if it gets the multiplayer right, imagine 4 on 4, and 2 of your friends get squashed you go and assist them, while the 4th one is sneaking behind the ennemy.

This looks fricking brilliant!

    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo 6 should incorporate all the halo species to date. Humans, covenant, brutes, flood, forerunner & also introduce a new species (7 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo 5 was a disaster storywise. Only way they can fix halo 6 is to drop that other spartan and focus only on master chief (7 Hours ago)

    amerakindesi To be frank though I loved halo 1, halo 2, halo 3, halo 4 campaigns in that order. 4 was my fav. (10 Hours ago)
