Majesty 2 coming to Xbox 360

Majesty 2 coming to Xbox 360

Paradox Interactive, developers of Hearts of the Iron and Europa Universalis series, announced earlier this year that they've acquired the Majesty brand and that a sequel will be released next year on PC. The Xbox 360 version has now been confirmed, so here are a couple of images and some info about the game, Majesty 2. Paradox is teaming up with 1C:Ino-Co for possibly both versions.

Here's an interview with Paradox btw:

I wonder how far away the X360 version is. I found some older (August) press releases and the X360 version was mentioned back then, as well as a DS version.

Interesting game. I read lots about the first game but never played it... I'll try this one for sure.

Is this a tower defense game?
Cuz if it is, we don't have enough of those type of games.

I'm all for deep strategy games on 360 if they're done well. Although Hearts of Iron is too deep IMO. I can't understand how anyone can get into that game in particular.

Anyways, great to see the 360 scooping up more of the PC market, if for nothing more than saving developers that might be put under by piracy.

No its like, you rule a castle and build blacksmith shops and stuff, then you can hire "heroes" to roam your lands, and set waypoints (which is actually quests) to get them to do stuff at their own leasure.

Such as attacking the troll that is destroying your castle, and put a reward on that quest. The heroes may instantly seek to complete it and claim the reward, or they may ignore it and do their own thing somewhere else :P

They get their armor and weapons from your blacksmith, and stuff. So think of it like you are in charge of one of the villages you usually visit to do quests and trade in WoW, Diablo or such games. And the heroes are npcs.

Its a wierd type of game.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Still very different. More like Diablo but the "game feel" is not as polished. Systems are more well designed, but I have to give it to Diablo when it comes to fit and finish. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yes.. the passive skill tree is pretty insane. It has a healthy mix of rigid decision making in its passive tree and flexibility in the active skill system. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Path of Exile is an endlessly playable action RPG and Pillars of Eternity is a turn-based single player game w/ a party system. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX No they are not.. they are both RPGs and they both have isometric cameras but that's where the similarities end. (6 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I always confuse the PoE abbreviation with Pillars of Eternity. Are they even the same type of game? (6 Hours ago)
