Lower the drawbridge

CastleStorm II was originally supposed to be out by now, but the dev team ended up delaying the game in order to meet their personal standards of quality. The team said they were aiming for a Fall 2020 release, and it seems they've managed that. CastleStorm II is pegged for launch on Sept. 23rd, 2020, and you can pre-order the game now. The usual asking price is $20, but if you pre-order now, you can get it for $18.

CastleStorm II Delayed Until Fall 2020

Mounting the perfect assault

Zen Studios is announcing today that Castlestorm II will be receiving a slight delay to this Fall on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Epic Games Store. The decision to delay was made with the intention of making sure Castlestorm II is up to the standards of the team as they look forward to delivering an exciting sequel to the 4X mashup series.

CastleStorm II is a charming, cartoonish, multigenre mashup featuring ballista-based castle-bashing, tower defense, hack-n-slash, and the newly added element of conquest with both real-time and turn-based strategy.

CastleStorm II Evolves Zen Studios’ Hit Fortress-Felling Franchise

Riders of the second storm

Los Angeles, CA – June 10, 2019 – Zen Studios continues its biggest year in company history with the announcement of CastleStorm II, the sequel to gaming’s most charming mix of ballista-based castle-bashing, tower defense, and hack-n-slash ferocity. CastleStorm II doesn’t just enhance this lauded gameplay formula – its new randomly generated world map adds a considerable new focus on strategic conquest. Players can experience this ultimate multigenre mashup when it arrives to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation®4, Xbox One and the Epic Games store in late 2019.

With an elevated emphasis on storytelling, CastleStorm II returns us to a classic fantasy land of medieval madness, rife with heroic knights, enchanting sorceresses, glorious griffins and more. But a new threat rises – literally…as in, from the grave. Killer zombies. Headless horsemen. All-around nasty necromancy. You get the picture.

Each of six distinct campaign modes are represented by delightfully memorable heroic characters, as players strive to conquer an overworld map through a mix of turn-based strategy and skill in an upgraded take on traditional CastleStorm combat. They’ll build castles and fortresses – and eventually an entire empire – through gameplay structured to engage hardcore strategy fans while also proving accessible to a wide player base. And as the castles get bigger, they fall much, much harder – the destruction powered by the Unreal 4 engine enhances the visceral action.

“It would have been enough to just make more of the same – something over 2 million people have enjoyed playing over the past six years – but we just felt we had to do way more for CastleStorm II,” says Mel Kirk, Vice President of Publishing. “The ‘4X’ strategy element adds a whole new layer, and it could be a full game on its own, all while being every bit as accessible as the more traditional CastleStorm gameplay. And when you do add in that awesome genre-mashing gameplay that defined the first game – itself leveled up, and complemented by an even greater emphasis on story and character – CastleStorm II really becomes something unique and special. We can’t wait for everyone to start commanding and clobbering later this year.”

Much more information about CastleStorm II will be revealed as the game nears release. Please visit www.CastleStorm.com and @CastleStorm2 through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for more information as it is made available. Play the original CastleStorm today on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation®4, PlayStation®VR, Xbox One, Steam, PlayStation®Vita, Nintendo Wii U, PlayStation®3, Xbox 360, iOS and Android.
