    Many of you guessed this would be our next game, and we're finally ready to announce that yes, Heroes and Castles 2 is finally coming!

    For those new to the series, the original Heroes and Castles was a blend of 3rd person action-RPG, castle defense, and strategy elements. Players would fight in the middle of huge, strategic battles - defending their castle walls - while summoning an army to fight beside them. Basically, we really wanted to try to get the feeling of large, Lord of the Rings style battles that you were fighting right in the middle of!

    The most obvious thing you may notice in H&C2 is that the graphics have gotten a complete overhaul... we're now using dynamic, physically accurate lighting, with a ton of advanced shader stuff like glancing angle reflections, fresnel lighting, super detailed & gritty textures, full shadows on everything, and lots more. Best of all is that all of that good stuff will be running on iPhone5 and up.

    We'll be releasing more details as time goes on, but until then check out these first screens and the feature list!

    FEATURES
    - participate in the middle of massive, strategic battles
    - summon huge armies to fight beside you
    - in depth combat with blocking, dashing, heavy attacks, dual wield, 2 handed weapons, and more
    - fully customizable heroes
    - hundreds of weapons, armor, and shields to equip your heroes with
    - 3 discipline/skill tree paths per race, with tons of abilities to upgrade
    - huge scope; conquer an entire map across dozens of lands, defend your castle, build outposts, and siege enemy fortifications and castles
    - seamless, immersive gameplay
    - fight across different times of day and night and in randomized weather
    - tons of unique allies and enemies with different attack patterns, behaviors, and counters
    - and LOTS more!

    The equips seem to be the biggest improvement that i can see here, and i cant wait to see them implemented in H&C's tried and true formula.

    H&C is my favorite Foursaken Games title, if that's any hint as to how excited i am for this sequel. :)

    Oh yes! It's about time!

    Please don't increase the game play speed and be sure to include that awesome soundtrack of the first game, especially that certain track which I don't know the name of. So it would be nice if the new tracks have their own names.

    Oh my god. This game. Holy shit. Hoooooooooly shit.

    I'm jumping out of my pants. H&C is legitimately my favorite iOS game of all time. When this game tops it.... Shit will hit the fan.

    It's beautiful guys.

    I'm affraid Foursaken Media said on twitter that they will probably be dropping support for...
    the iPhone 4 & iPod Touch 4, meaning that your iPhone 4S will most likely do just fine! :D

    Link.

    Ah there it is. Equippable gear and weapons was the only thing I've missed in the first one. Well, not missed but it would have been cool.
    However, they've finally implemented it which will provide a ton more depth to the already excellent genre mix they had created.
    Awesome news so far!

    Oh man, i just can't wait for this game. I'm probably going to check this page way too often hoping to see some updates. I just can't help myself, the first game is one of the few games that never left my device, and thats saying something for me because i delete alot.
