NEW YORK, May 20th, 2011– Paradox Interactive and Neocore Games are proud to announce the launch of a new developer diary for King Arthur II: The Role-Playing Wargame, the highly anticipated sequel for the Role-playing RTS series that are launching this Fall. The developer diaries will be released on a bi-weekly basis.

The story begins long after young Arthur pulled the enchanted sword out of the stone and united the war-torn land of Britannia. Where legends normally end, King Arthur II begins on its own gruesome tale...

From the first developer diary by Viktor Juh?sz, content designer&writer for King Arthur II:

“We wanted our players to shape their own mythology, where Arthur could be a tyrant, a believer of the Old Faith, a true knight, a Christian zealot, or anything between. From this, we set out to create an fantasy world based on some historical facts, but also a great deal of myth and folklore.“
