King’s Bounty 2 no longer out in March, now slated for August 24

King’s Bounty 2 has a new release date.

1C Entertainment and Koch Media today have announced the release of King’s Bounty 2 has been moved to August.

The upcoming entry in the turn-based tactical role-playing series will be released on August 24. It was originally slated for March, but the team needs more time to ensure it has adequate time to deliver the best possible experience.

“We are currently at a stage where the content is complete and playable, but we need more time to finish playtesting, fixing, and polishing,” said producer Denis Maltzev. “The revised launch date will give us additional time for balancing, which is much needed for such an important project, with its ambitious open-world, complex narrative, and deep turn-based tactical and RPG mechanics.

“Seeing the love and passion that you, our fans, put behind this project, we are grateful for all your support and ask for a little more patience.”

King’s Bounty 2 expands on its tactical turn-based battles that will add weight to your every decision, whether leading an army into battle or building relations with locals, and there will be moral choices aplenty.

You will take on the role of one of three heroes – each a personality with their own background – and experience a non-linear adventure in an open and fantasy world. Split into two distinct phases, players traverse the realm from a third-person perspective, picking up quests, exploring the wilderness, and getting to know the people they meet. When conflict arises, however, the perspective shifts to tactical, turn-based combat.

A first glimpse of the game was shown during the Epic Games Showcase yesterday, and more information on it will be shared at a later date.

King’s Bounty 2 is in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
