Katharine shows off her magic in King’s Bounty II
1C Entertainment and Prime Matter are pleased to reveal the second of three playable characters for King’s Bounty II. Today’s new trailer introduces, Katharine, a human mage who prefers the power of word, intrigue, and magic rather than open confrontation with the enemy.
The upcoming successor of the unique and critically acclaimed turn-based tactical role-playing series King’s Bounty will launch on August 24th, 2021 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
Katharine comes from a long line of noble Rigern counts, the rulers of the rugged mountain region of Nostria. She spent more than 20 years away from Nostria, roaming the dragon ruins and the remains of ancient Antis, looking for arcane knowledge and magic. However, when Katharine stops receiving the taxes she needs to fund her expeditions and mystical research she discovers that her nephew, Maurice, has taken over her county. Outraged by this, she heads to the Universal Assembly in order to demand the return of her power from the King…
Darkness descends over the world of Nostria. Conspiracies, sabotage, and necromancy are overshadowing the country. Counties are demanding independence, bandits prowl the roads, and rumors about the overwhelming power of Blight emerge from a whisper in the dark. The old King Claudius was poisoned and cannot lead the kingdom, and so his son, Prince Adrian, must now unite the struggling lands while his power and faith fall under attack. But maybe a saviour – the kingdom’s last hope – is already here, to fight back and finally restore peace and order in Nostria?
King’s Bounty II will launch on August 24th on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC.
