Fantasy wargaming is back!

Fantasy General II is the reimagination of the strategy game classic from the 90s! Armies once again draw battle-lines on the war-torn land of Keldonia, and a new generation of commanders will test their bravery and tactics against each other.

True to the tradition of the original game, Fantasy General II is all about turn-based battles. Lead over 75 different unique unit types, including powerful heroes. Take into consideration terrain, weapons and armour, magical effects, morale, and the balance of forces, make a plan, execute it, and vanquish your enemy, forging your reputation as a savage war-leader.

Battle after battle, you will need to make decisions and develop your army. The young clan members will need to be trained, and as they gain enough experience, even the greenest recruits can be turned into champions. But beware: costly victories can be worse than a defeat… when battle-hardened units perish, so does their progression and experience.
Each unit comes with their specific abilities, arms and armour, and they can be equipped with magic artefacts you find during battle and upgraded with gold and resources that you need to plunder from your enemy.

The world of Aer is filled with beauty and wonders. From the cold, magic-rich highlands of Fareach, home to the player’s Barbarian Clans, to the Borderlands with their fertile river valleys and deep woods where witches and monsters still roam free; from the Sunken Land, submerged through a great Cataclysm and filled with treacherous swamp and Lizardfolk, to the refined and temperate Empire to the South, home to wondrous cities and built upon undead labour. Your campaign will see you fight across very different battlefields, requiring variable tactics and army composition.

Outstanding news and I am very much looking forward to it.

While I understand that you are going for a strong barbarians vs. Rome vibe, I do hope that you keep the fantastical weirdness of the original.

I think your memory needs a bit of a refresh as well! Kidding, of course.

Oh many many hours playing the Original. I wish you all the best and hope you achieve what your striving for. There is definitely a high bar set to surpass the original. Obviously I applied for BETA. :)

See you all in the game soon hopefully

having played the original, and having watched all the vlog's, this game reminds me a great deal of warlock - master of the arcane. That isn't a slight, really, as that and the second version of that game were really fun games. Going to have to break down and upgrade to windows 10 to play. I'm a little bummed about that, but I am looking forward to this game so very much.

Win10 isn't a requirement anymore. Anything Win7 and above should work correctly. We just didn't get to testing it in time for the first beta. If you are on Vista or before I am afraid you would have to upgrade.
