The Ultimate Evil: An Early Look at Dungeons 2

Dungeons 2 is an upcoming RPG dungeon simulator developed by Realmforge Studios and published by Kalypso Media, where you'll find yourself playing the Prime Evil—or his Hand of Terror, at least. We put on our best-looking sinister hat and went hands-on with a pre-release version of the game.

The first order of business in Dungeons 2 is a quick tutorial mission where you play as the invincible Prime Evil. The game has a top-down view, with WASD panning the map, which has a fog of war for you to uncover. Using click-to-move (RMB for basic attack) you'll plow through those pesky heroes, who have the nerve to be happy on the overworld.

Unfortunately, these heroes don't appreciate being completely slaughtered, and once you have the basics down you'll find yourself returned to the underworld. How they managed to get the best of the Prime Evil is unknown, but you're left only being able to control things through his Hand of Terror.

Dungeons 2 Release Date Announced

Mark your calendars for April 24th: the Dungeon Lord will rise again in Dungeons 2! A mix of RTS and strategy, the game will see you building your dungeon in the underworld and launching attacks upon the overworld. Competitive multiplayer supports up to four players, with four different modes available.

The game appears to be the spiritual successor to Dungeon Keeper that fans have been waiting for.
