wizard-of-legend-is-getting-a-sequel-with-‘improved-3d-graphics,-an-expanded-storyline,-and-even-on-line-multiplayer’

Wizard of Legend, the isometric dungeon crawler that we mentioned “might be the closest we’re ever going to get to a very good Avatar: The Final Airbender game,” was successful, promoting greater than 500,000 copies shortly after it launched in 2018. Now a sequel is on the best way, revealed at this time by writer Humble Video games as “a wholly new” expertise being developed by Youngsters of Morta studio Lifeless Mage.

Lifeless Mage is “an ideal match for what we need to do with the Wizard of Legend franchise,” Humble head of content material technique Becky Sayers mentioned throughout at this time’s showcase. “Gamers are going to expertise the identical beloved appeal from the unique game, however this time with improved 3D graphics, an expanded storyline, and even on-line multiplayer”

Authentic Wizard of Legend developer Contingent 99 can also be concerned within the mission, working with Lifeless Mage on a advisor foundation.

“In continued collaboration with Contingent 99, the unique creators of Wizard of Legend, we’re bringing you a wholly new, thrilling expertise, which is genuine to every part the followers cherished concerning the first game,” Lifeless Mage lead designer Javid Najibzadeh mentioned. “This time in 3D with a brand new multiplayer mode, which you’ll be able to get pleasure from and share your adventures with your mates.”

A quick teaser proven throughout the livestream gives a fast comparability of the outdated and new graphical kinds, and on that entrance Wizard of Legend 2 has clearly come a good distance from the unique game. The core gameplay appears to be like related—fast-paced, element-based—whereas the 3D isometric world guarantees a richer, extra vibrant, and admittedly, with all due respect to diehard retro followers–extra, attention-grabbing setting.

Pretty much as good as Wizard of Legend is, I am particularly wanting to see what Lifeless Mage does with it: Youngsters of Morta is a wonderful roguelike nevertheless it additionally tells a extremely good story, and it will be very attention-grabbing to see what kind of narrative concepts the studio brings to this new game, particularly with the co-op multiplayer choice.

Wizard of Legend does not have a launch date but, nevertheless it’s out there for wishlisting now on Steam.
