Kingdom Under Fire II Articles
Last week we had the opportunity to get some hands-on time with Kingdom Under Fire 2, an ambitious MMORTS. From what we saw last week it looks like KUF2 might have been able to combine both into an exciting and compelling gameplay experience.
Kingdom Under Fire 2 is slated to hit come to the West in November, and leading up to that launch the team is starting to showcase some of the classes in the game. Check out the Ranger class coming to the MMO/RTS hybrid in our exclusive spotlight.
So what is Kingdom Under Fire II? KUF2 (much easier) is a merging of the spirit of earlier Kingdom Under Fire titles with a new beautiful engine. In short, KUF2 is a cross between RTS, RPG and MMO. Playing out in front of me it looked like the sort of thing Peter Jackson dreams about when he considers battle scenes.
There’s something undeniably epic about commanding several squads of troops into battle and running pell-mell after them with reckless abandon. Blueside’s new MMORPG, Kingdom Under Fire II (KUF2), somehow manages to give you an RTS-style feel of tactically directing groups of minions around the battlefield, while retaining the single-character progression and combat that have become hallmarks of modern action MMOs.
