Project Warlock II announcement trailer

Project Warlock II is a retro shooter with non-stop action game. This also includes blood spattered pixels flying everywhere. Even epic rock and synth soundtrack, fully new, atmospheric sound design. Including improvement for every aspect of the original game. With DNA of the retro classics Blood and Hexen running through the veins of both games. Project Warlock II is looking at Quake where Project Warlock’s eye was on Doom.

Project Warlock II picks up right after the events in the first game. Taking place in three explosive episodes. This title features three playable Warlock characters – Palmer, Urd and Kirsten. They are also disciples of Warlock from the original title. With their master nowhere to be found, the Disciples of Warlock set out to investigate the demonic invasion. The one that shakes the very foundations of their realms.

Each of the disciples is a master of their own discipline. Since each has his or her reasons to find Warlock and confront their old master. Each chapter features distinct settings, a menagerie of deadly monsters, and bosses hulking in the darkness. FPS players can certainly look forward to more. Such as secrets, upgrades, pickups, jumping, strafing, and trigger happy action.

In Project Warlock II, Shoot, burn, cut and blast your way through huge, sprawling levels. Each full of demonic hordes in this sequel with totally revamped visuals. The same visceral gunplay and relentless tempo. Including a pulsing and riffing soundtrack.

“Project Warlock was just the beginning, I’m so excited to show fans how we’re building on that title with Project Warlock II,” said Kuba Cisło of Buckshot Software. “Support from fans around the world on Kickstarter means so much, and we’re thrilled to see that people want to help bring this title to life.”

The first game received a significant overhaul

  • MAGIC
    PWII’s magic is a reinterpreted system where each of the Warlock’s. Due to Project Warlock II having a dedicated range of skills operating on cooldowns to support gun or magic play.
  • WEAPONS
    Each of the Warlocks carries a different arsenal based on their personas. This also includes branching upgrades resulting in 20+ weapons for each of the Warlocks.
  • MONSTERS
    Adding another layer to the behavior of monsters results in them now jumping, and running. As a result, this means holding back when needed, hopping, and spinning. Such as using each of the different attacks as needed.
  • VISUALS
    Total overhaul of the visuals resulting in sprites that now have 8 sides to PW’s 2. That’s literally twice as much. Talk about value.
  • VERTICALITY
    Literally adding more room to the levels as per players’ feedback. Project Warlock II offers huge, sprawling and multi leveled areas that are 5-6 times bigger that any of the levels of the first game. The addition of the oft requested verticality means one level can be five storys worth of vertigo inducing footbridges, ledges, and floors.
  • SAVES
    Unlike the first game, Project Warlock II now has every imaginable save feature. Including quicksave, manual save, and autosave.

Project Warlock II demon filled FPS will be available on Windows PC and consoles. The sequel is due to launch into Steam Early Access and GOG Games In Development on July 29, 2021. Then sometime after that, Linux support.
