Beware: New Two Worlds Game Announced for 2012

Beware: New Two Worlds Game Announced for 2012

image

There's a new Two Worlds game coming out next year, though we're not sure if that's a promise or a threat.

Two Worlds II was a bit of a surprise when it was released: Folks were a bit wary of it because of its predecessor's dubious quality and the numerous delays it got hit with (presumably due to the legal troubles that plagued publisher SouthPeak Games), but it turned out the game didn't suck. Now, developer TopWare has announced that it's planning to release a new Two Worlds game next year.

TopWare's managing director James Seaman broke the news when he commented on a Destructoid story about how his company was puportedly blacklisting low-scoring Two Worlds II reviews. After denying the allegations, Seaman revealed the following:

"We are trying to do a better job every time and have brought in a brand new 3D modelling, animation and CG team for the next Two Worlds game coming out in 2012."

Ironically, the revelation of the new game was made days before Two Worlds II is due to be released in the U.K. Judging by the drastic improvements that were made for Two Worlds II, this next title will (hopefully) be great.

I will buy it.

Two Worlds 2 is a lot of fun.

if they do it like they did with Two Worlds 2, then FUCK yeah

Well, they improve every time they make a game, so I'm up for it.

The first one was overlooked anyway, nobody gave it a chance, it was a solid game with a few bugs.

I love Two Worlds 2.
Its an over all great game. Chances are wi wont be beating it anytime soon though.
Its so long xD ive played 12 hours and im still in chapter one!

I feel like Two Worlds is the leftover stuff that the all the other RPG people decided against all piled up into one big, weird, why-is-this-happening kind of game. I like it. It's sort of unintentional self-parody.

I thought Two Worlds 2 sucked ass. I guess I'm in a minority.

Sweet!I really hope they don't make almost an entire island inaccesible though.I wasted so much time sailing around it trying to find a way to get it.
The savannah environment was refreshing and well made,I hope they keep up the good work improving their concept.

I wouldn't be quite that harsh on it, but I was not a big fan of it either. Some really baffling design decisions marred the games otherwise appealing features for me. For example, Sneak and Death Blow being absolutely pointless skills when you can only sneak up on specific enemies. Why even bother putting those in if that was going to be the case.

And I think the game would have been twice as enjoyable if you could simply muted the voice-overs.

Can't wait, but I really wish DLC for Two worlds 2, like now. Need more multi missions.

My roommate seems to enjoy every second of it. That means he's less on my back every day. But hey, the developper seemed to really have improved.

here is the thing:

Two Worlds one was labeled as "Oblivion on Steroids", I think they confused Steroids with Crystal Meth.

Two Worlds II is a vast improvement to the original, I actually got passed the first quest, but I found the online multiplayer a bit on the lazy side as compared to Two Worlds 1, but still a great improvement.

If Two Worlds II is any indication of just how hard the developer is trying to improve their game series......

I will call it now, Two Worlds III, GOTY 2012.....

that is...... if there isnt a CoD or Halo game released that same year.

TW2 being an improvement on the first doesnt mean its goo, it just means its not a crime to the industry.

I will ignore TW2 and wait for 3, if it is considered an improvement I will get it for cheap, that way it will be atleast "OK", but as it is, no just not, I remember how horrible TW1 was.

I want to see Southpeak make an entirely new series.

No offense, but I really don't like the ongoing story they have. It feels trite, cliched, and very silly. And the female fashion in the game doesn't help matters.

For a final nail in the coffin, it's starting not to make much sense at all to new players. I am still slightly confused in #2, and I played partway through Two Worlds 1. For those who haven't played 1, or even 2, a third game in this series could be impossible to get into.

Two Worlds 2 is a ton of fun, they went from at least a 3/10 to a 7 or 8/10 and hopefully next time they can make it to a 10/10. They hopefully will be able to keep drastically improving the game with each sequel.

Two Worlds 2, from the brief amount that I played (a friend's copy) it seems better than the first, that's not saying much of course, but it was pretty good.
I had a weird problem with the ingame screen though, even on my widescreen TV there were things I couldn't see. That was by far my biggest issue with the game.

If they tighten up the controls and animations and the screen issue and get rid of a few bugs and maybe hire decent voice actors (though, there's something hilarious about bad voice acting)
Then Two Worlds 3 will actually be a really good game. At the very least, you have to give them credit for being able to accept their failures and trying, and in a lot of ways succeeding, to improve their games.

The rumour mill is grinding plenty of bad things about the developers.

I loved Two Worlds 2...played it for days straight without sleeping...sure, it has its flaws, but I'm still looking forward to a sequel...

My friend had that problem, but once he got a HDMI cord, it fixed it.

There is an option in the menu (forget what the option is actually called) that fits the game to your screen.

I have one request: FIX. THE. VOICE. ACTING.

Did anyone else think the main character kind of sounded like Christian Bale's Batman?

Sober Thal:
I will buy it.

I completely agree with you. I have thoroughly enjoyed Two Worlds II.

They vastly improved from the first game, and my biggest issue is that they started out sooo well in 2, but around chapter 3 they lost some of their steam. But, its not a big complaint, and I really do enjoy the game. I bought the Royal Edition, and wasnt let down in the slightest, so I will definitely be looking forward to the third one.
