SouthPeak Interactive Invites You To Take Up Arms And Return to the World of Antaloor in Two Worlds II™ on September 14
The Long Anticipated Second Chapter of the Epic Fantasy Series Dated for Consoles and Windows PC this Fall
MIDLOTHIAN, Va.—SouthPeak Interactive Corporation (OTC BB: SOPK) and TopWare Interactive today confirmed that Two Worlds II™, the second installment in the hit fantasy role-playing game series, will ship to retail stores in the United States, Canada and South America on September 14, 2010. It will ship to stores in the United Kingdom on September 17, 2010.
“TopWare and Reality Pump have spent a tremendous amount of time listening to feedback based on the original game,” said Richard Iggo, VP of Marketing at SouthPeak. “If the reaction we’ve seen so far from the press is indicative of what’s to come, we have a game that will be seen as a benchmark in the genre. ‘Epic’ is a word that’s overused and worn-out when it comes to games like this, so we’ve created a new word for Two Worlds II: Astronepic. Yeah, it’s that good.”
Building upon the storyline from the first installment, Two Worlds II offers the willing adventurer the thrilling experience of a perilous and daring journey throughout a vast magical land. While undoubtedly rich in story, detail and content, the game also offers an array of unique approaches to classic game elements that push the envelope for the fantasy RPG genre.
Featuring the all-new GRACE™ game engine, Two Worlds II seeks to offer an immersive blend of two of the most important role playing elements - strong atmosphere and dazzling visuals. Incorporating cutting-edge technology features such as Real Eye Adaptation, HD Dynamic Motion Capture, and Multi-Source Dynamic Lighting, the world of Antaloor comes alive like never before as a true role-player’s paradise.
Two Worlds II will be available at retailers on Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC. More information can be found at www.twoworlds2.com or www.southpeakgames.com.
