Greetings fellow necromancers and necromancer candidates! I’m Sampo Töyssy from 10tons, and I’m thrilled to announce that Undead Horde 2 launches today on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One! We’re excited to bring our necromantic RPG-hack’n’slash-RTS hybrid to Xbox.
In Undead Horde2: Necropolis you become a powerful necromancer with the ability to raise the dead and command them in battle. With each victory, your army will grow stronger, and your city will become more powerful. In essence Undead Horde 2 is an action game with elements from RPG, strategy and hack’n’slash.
The creation of Undead Horde 2 was an interesting journey for us: It’s a sequel but on the other hand we were able to improve and even change many things. The player feedback so far has been very positive, and most players think the sequel is better than the first game in many ways which has been very nice to hear. We’ve tried staying true to the spirit of the original game, while simultaneously expanding its universe and refining the elements that made the first game so captivating.
The biggest change is in the core player interaction: Instead of your horde mirroring the enemies exactly, you can choose which kind of undead you raise. So, the players have more control over their undead minions in a more strategic and immersive manner. Our aim has been to not just create a sequel, but to evolve the franchise into a more engaging, dynamic, and compelling experience. We hope we’ve succeeded in our goal.
We also have an additional announcement: Undead Horde 2 was named the Big Screen Game of the Year at the Finnish Game Awards! The award was a nice surprise for us, since we didn’t think our sequel would stand a chance. We hope you enjoy commanding your undead armies on Xbox as much as we’ve enjoyed creating this experience for you. Glory to the king and glory to the undead!
