Default Two Worlds II - Call of the Tenebrae released

June 16th, 2017, 21:31
The Two Worlds II addon Call of the Tenebrae has been released:

Two Worlds 2: Call of the Tenebrae

At long last, it’s time to revisit the sprawling lands of Antaloor for another thrilling chapter in the Two Worlds saga! After the high-flying adventure of TW2: Pirates of the Flying Fortress, leave the skies behind and return to Antaloor in this exciting new DLC, Two Worlds 2: Call of the Tenebrae!

In this new RPG adventure, the shocking murder of DarPha sets in motion a chain of events that reveals a powerful new magic and a creeping evil with sinister designs for the populace of Antaloor. Drawn into a battle between two warring leaders of a savage tribe of rat-like creatures, this horrific new enemy has managed to complete the bulk of its grotesque plan while the citizens of Antaloor have remained completely unaware. With only a few short days until their diabolical scheme is complete, the hero must act fast and defeat this new evil before the light of Antaloor is extinguished!

Team up with familiar faces and new allies alike as you unravel a genocidal plot that will destroy the harmony of Antaloor and leave its people and lands in ruins. Solve the mystery of the Elves’ disappearance and uncover powerful relics of a time passed as new revelations lead to shocking discoveries that will change the face of Antaloor forever.

Find sturdy new armor, powerful new weapons, brand-new locations and battle a fearsome new race in your quest to uncover the hidden secrets of Antaloor. Harness new crystals, upgrade your weapons and armor, brew new potions with an expanded alchemy system and battle new enemies and boss characters. New combat techniques and enemy behaviors will keep you guessing and brand new locations await you, from haunted graveyards and crypts to dank swamps and dark forests swarming with vicious enemies.

The fate of Antaloor’s people hangs in the balance and the stakes have never been higher. Uncover the nefarious plot against her citizens and discover the powerful secret that will rock Antaloor to its core. Welcome back to Two Worlds!

FEATURES:

An all new engine upgrade will display the beauty of Antaloor and its denizens like never before! See stunning new locations, highly detailed new enemies and allies and beautiful new effects!
  • Several hours of thrilling gameplay, in an all new adventure set in the Two Worlds universe, in addition to myriad side-quests and optional missions.

  • Ferocious new bosses, each requiring fast hands and quick thinking as you discover and exploit their carefully guarded weaknesses.

It should be.

There is also standalone version of TW2 HD + Call of Tenebrae on Steam. But there are no reviews yet.

Stay away. Reviews are bad. Appears TW2 devs are trying to jump on the GOTY/Enhanced edition train a little too late for this title.

At first sight - especially from gameplay videos Two Worlds I-II..etc have good graphics and seem intriguing, but only after trying out one you realize the unfortunate truth: Unfun Mess.

They should've remade the first one. It was a better game.

I was looking forward to this as TW2 is one of my favorite games of all time. Before considering, you may want to read the reviews and comments on Steam, almost all of which are abysmal. Not too surprising considering Reality Pumps total debacle with Raven's Cry. I mean it's one thing when you screw up, but it's totally another thing when you refuse to fix it or even admit that it needs fixing.

Wow, they removed the console then added in micro-transactions to help you cheat?? That's just… wow.

I think I'll just pretend that RP really did go bankrupt back a couple of years ago.

No I'm not saying don't pay for microtransactions. I'm saying don't buy cancerous products.

No buy because of the micro transactions. Leave that silliness for the phone game market. Pass.

Wrong on so many levels. I finished two worlds two just a month or so ago in anticipation of new content, instead I deleted the game, will never play again, and will never ever purchase this. Thanks for saving me money!

Yeah, I liked the voice overs.

Micro transactions don't play any role that I've noticed. I'm… quite enjoying this now. I can't for the life of me remember how to play though. It was 2 hours before I discovered how to sprint :/

When/where does the DLC take place? Is it integrated into the main game or is it a separate quest accessed from the menu?

Oh man you guy are hilarious. TW1 was a JOKE. Hilarious, terrible voice acting. TW2 was a little better, but still a clunky piece of crap.

I love RPG watch, but you guys with your grading curve for ANYTHING european-made… truly hilarious.

You and rune_74 should be partners with your Euro-bias conspiracy theories.

@Ovenall - nice little tirade. It's been a little while since you last threw a fit over how people enjoy different games than you. I kinda missed it

Both games were indeed pretty clunky - but they had their charm. I could definitely use a more polished version of either. It's not like the world was swimming in open world RPGs back then - and it's still not, unless you count all the me-too Ubisoft clones.

However, I'm not sure what to make of this - and why in the world would they add microtransactions? That's something you do if you expect a sizable audience that would actually care enough to spend money on in-game stuff.

In this case, it makes them look desperately greedy and out of touch with reality. Then again, they also made Raven's Cry - which was another game I really looked forward to but turned out to be marred by mediocrity and horrible, horrible performance.

Which reminds me, I should give it another shot soon. joxer is always going on about it - and he does occasionally reflect reason.

As for this TW2 thingy - I guess these guys just suck a bit more than they glow.

I don't trust Topware anymore. Since their repeated insolvency they use methods I can't agree with. For example they own german website dlh.net. Make an educated guess whose review and award is used prominently on Vendetta's steam page? I have every sympathy for small companies struggling to survive. But this behaviour seems dishonest to me, and if you recall their company history, it isn't for the first time.
