Another classic real time strategy game is set for a second coming.
Following the trail of games that were successfully reinvented with sequels, Battle Realms is set for a kickstarter, planned with improved game design and additional content. Liquid Entertainment co-founder Ed Del Castillo confirmed through multiple vlogs in their official YouTube channel that the classic hit will have a rebirth, currently titled as Battle Realms 2: Lair of the Lotus.
A few note-worthy leaks from the game designer’s vlogs were the planned storyline and the game mechanics. The sequel the set to follow Kenji, the game’s protagonist, and the aftermath of the original game. More units and Zen Masters (special hero units in the game) are to be offered, as well as additional clans to top off the current four in the roster.
