Ravensword 2 or, as its called now Ravensword: Shadowlands, is an upcoming open-world RPG being produced by Crescent Moon Games. From all indications, it's going to blow the first game out of the water, its scale and scope appearing to be that much more tremendous. You'll be able to wander freely around a diverse fantasy world, looting chests and slaying bad guys, while experiencing top-notch visuals and adventuring on many a quest.

At least, that's the impression the game's first teaser trailer in a while is giving us. And now you can watch it, too, via the magic of the Internet. Just look below:

It's hard to keep our expectations in check on this one. It could be The Elder Scrolls of mobile RPGs, which just seems to be crazy to consider. We'll see for sure later this year when Shadowlands hits in Q4.

    Now THAT'S an iOS game worth buying.

    • brando

  • UnSurreal

  • Professionalbum

    And I thought borderlands 2 would take up my time; please make days longer...

  • henry su

    holy crap that t-rex made me pee my pants.

  • Skarvarn

    Blah bladha sword jadda Dark Lord blada lone hero.

    Jesus, that was generic.

    • ducksFANjason

      Your face is generic

      • ImJPaul

        Ya...your face and your.....mom. Just STFU!!!

      • ConceptNormal

        If you can't see that's generic then someone who's blind like Stevie wonder deserves your eyes... Can't wait for all the high expectations to turn to sour notes like all the people who cried after playing wild blood.

      • ImJPaul

        Why would you wish for this game to be bad?! You would go out of your way to say something like this to a bunch of people who are very excited about this game?! That's pretty lame man. Keep your opinion to yourself if you don't have anything nice to say. But whatever, cool guy.

      • ConceptNormal

        I don't believe I wished for anything... That's just silly in fact, no where in what I said has the word "wish" in there. Actually, I wish the game turns out to be good? All I'm saying is ppl see a 50 sec trailer and are like "wow, greatest game of all time" and 100 times to 1 that game regardless of it being pretty good, is a dissapointment to everyone because it was just "good" and not the greatest game of all time. Geez, um, kind of like Wild Blood?

      • ConceptNormal

        Ok that wasn't nice? You could have ignored me but now your a hypocrite.

  • Alim Kumykov

    Looks great! Althouth I more looking forward to Aralon 2. According to developer Ravensword is more of a action game than an RPG, and Aralon 2 is a real RPG with elements like crafting, stats, etc.

    • Chuck Anton

      it still has many rpg elements... the difference is this is fun

  • Cleafus

    Oh my GLOB!

  • rpgmind

    Wow. Added to watchlist!

  • lr1919

    Every Crescent Moon Games title I've bought is buggy as crap. Horrible testing, patching takes forever, and game ruining bugs. I hope they got that sorted out now that I've passed on their last 5 or so games, because I really want to like this one...

      so... pretty much elder scrolls on iphone then?

      • Justin Faull

        Hahah. If its elder scrolls on iphone, I hope its not what Skyrim was like on ps3. 

  • Dragnoe

    Aha inspired by LOTR intro much? Soooooo excited! 😀

  • Shadowking2214

    From someone who just bought skyrim and has been playing for 3 days,this looks pretty damn similar,can't wait for this game

  • iRichie

    Crescent Moon started out with...I think only 2 guys and I like to support what they do. This one for me is an instant buy 🙂

  • adichandra

    shit looks real bad ass for a mobile game!

  • Tom Melbourne

    I was waiting for the guy in the trailer to fus ro dah a dino, that would convince me.

  • Hex Blade

    Being a huge Open-world RPG fan for many years, Aralon and Ravensword 1 were the first two games I bought when I first got my iOS device. I had high hopes for them but they were simply too basic and underwhelming to keep me interested and deleted them both before finishing them.

    Ravensword: Shadowlands may look impressive in the trailer but I'm pretty sure it's not going to be any iOS version of Skyrim.

    I've been burnt twice before by Crescent Moon. I'm not touching Shadowlands until I get concrete conformation that it's an RPG worthy of my time.

    • GSJ1977

      Yeah, first Ravensword was utterly crap, so I'm not excited by this sequel.

      • PadreTomasito

        Sure, it was very limited game, but man - a crap? This was an indie project and at the time it was very good game as for mobile phone(!). Generic, limited, too simple, with bugs - yes, all of tha, but I must say I completed this game only because of this all simplifications - it was fun. On the other hand Aralon with much more open world, with handful of quests, etc. was too complex and to much time consuming to give me a fun... Not bad, great moments, "almost" like Morrowind - of course much simpler, but still - it was an indie project not a million dollar game! So, even if I deleted Aralon without completion because I got bored - I would never say that their work was a crap. Two thumbs up for devs and huge thanks for their efforts.

      • curtisrshideler

        First Ravensword was released quite a while ago and was a huge step forward in 3rd/1st person Action RPGing on a phone! I still have it on my phone and enjoy it frequently. Being under 100mb, they packed it pretty full. So, if I have any expectations for the second, I am sure it will blow them away as the first did. I don't expect a multi-million dollar game with console quality and million dollar script. I expect a leap forward again in RPG quality on the app store, and will most definitely see my expectations blown away again. Kudos to them for making it.

  • Tom Melbourne

    TouchArcade have made my day

  • Tom Melbourne

    But it can't cost more than 99c or ill rage on the forums

    .... I gotta go change my boxers.

  • ConceptNormal

    Elder scrolls for iOS? Riiight...

  • http://www.twitter.com/ipadgamermag Pete Morris

    I'm not that into RPGs, but I'm buying this one. I've got a geeky love of seeing harware pushed to its limits! 🙂

  • jomeezyLCM

    Another game I won't be able to play with my itouch 4. Upgrade time 🙁

    • pylos

      Actually they're thinking about a low res version 🙂 so have faith 😉

      • ImJPaul

        But still. It's a low res version. Upgrade!!!

  • Yourplague

    Was I The only one who felt a little something in my pants watching that trailer?

  • Tom Melbourne

    This will be so good on my iPad 2

  • mudd

    I care more about the world feeling vibrant than being huge. The first Ravensword was filled with near empty caves with enemies who stared at the walls until you shot 'em with an arrow.

    • swatbot

      Yeah, that's just the thing.  Since people are talking Skyrim.. that game had a massive development cycle and it shows,. but even that game isn't perfect.  It takes an unbelievable amount of work and a huge development cycle to make an open world game that stays interesting and surprising... I guess we'll see later this year!

  • PadreTomasito

    Oh my, sweet Jesus in Heaven! Well, meanwhile, maybe I should reinstall Aralon and give it a second try...

  • Shady

    Real RPG

  • vesp67

    Hopefully I can play this on my iPod 4g.... Probably not though.... Oh well

  • keving0

    I think I had a game-gasm

  • Lorenzo Lomanto

    App store is the best...i hope it won't come for android XD

  • roman

    jak to mam hrat nebo stahnout?
