Teaming up with Phantagram once again, Kingdom Under Fire II marks a return to the Action-RTS formula. Blue Side have been working hard to develop the key components, promising an enhanced game system. Picking up from where Heroes and The Crusaders left off, Kingdom Under Fire II marks the addition of a third-faction to the fold, battling the Human Alliance and Dark Legion that has been the basis for previous titles.
Intriguingly, Blue Side also maintains that Kingdom Under Fire II will usher in a new genre... the MMOARTS, otherwise known as the world's first Massively Multiplayer Online Action RTS. Offering a single-player and an online mode, Blue Side describes a mode that allows thousands of players to join a server to pit their skills against each other.
Scheduled for release during 2009 on the PC and unspecified console platforms, there could be some suggestion that the series will jump from its Xbox exclusivity.
