Kingdom Under Fire II Coming to PS4

Sang Youn Lee's Avatar + Posted by Sang Youn Lee on Jun 11, 2014 // Director and Producer, Kingdom Under Fire II

I’m Sang Youn Lee, Producer and Director of Kingdom Under Fire II. I’ve developed Kingdom Under Fire I, Kingdom Under Fire: Crusaders, and N3.


Kingdom Under Fire II is brand new, action RTS, in which players can control both troops and the hero at the same time. As a free-to-play MMO, players can evolve from a unknown mercenary up to the ultimate ruler of the world, and also players can explore massive scale battlefields together with friends.

We’ve developed Kingdom Under Fire II as a successor to previous games in both story and gameplay. Basic troop strategy and action strategy play like the two former games. Furthermore, we developed the gameplay elements so players can focus more on action strategy.

The story of Kingdom Under Fire: Crusaders and Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes are based on the vast story of the Bersia continent. Kingdom Under Fire II starts its story in Bersia where approximately 120 years has passed since Kingdom Under Fire: Crusaders.

Lots of things have changed for 120 years. Regnier, the powerful hero in Kingdom Under Fire: Crusaders, disappeared and became legend. Encablossa, the God of Darkness, sent a mysterious evil one called Celes to Bersia in order to recreate the Age of Darkness and destroy the current Age of Light.

The biggest difference between Kingdom Under Fire II and the former games in the series would be scale. The former games featured simple troop strategy play, but Kingdom Under Fire II is a strategy game of grand size regarding troops. Also, heroes can use more powerful actions, and hundreds of weapon types of various troops which have more specialized strategic function.

There are currently three types of heroes in development, including the Berserker, Gunslinger, and Spellswords. Berserker has a huge bastard sword and a powerful body with a wide attack range. This type of Hero will have powerful stamina to wipe out lots of enemies at the melee combat.

Kingdom Under Fire

Gunslinger is very technical type of Hero that participates in battle with a gun and a sword. Players may have difficulty controlling the Gunslinger, but once they become used to this, players will create new tactics in the battlefield. Especially because this character has strength in controlling troops, so players can make more powerful and agile attack with Gunslinger.

As for the Spellsword, this Hero has weak stamina but can use lots of magic with immense skill. We’re planning to expand character types through updates in the future.

Thank you to all the gamers who’ve been waiting for Kingdom Under Fire II for a long time. To make a better game, to make a new genre, there were several trials and we needed lots of time. Finally we’re at the last stage. We spent more time than we expected but we are really here.

Please expect Kingdom Under Fire II. Also a big thanks to Sony for welcoming us to PlayStation.

sad to see this is an MMO. I *was* excited for it till I read that. I dont like MMOs and being required to play with other people. I look for good single player experiences in my RPGs

Apparently, the PS4 is the best looking version. Better than the PC version.

Nice! been wanting to play this since it was announced back in 2008! if anyone’s curious it’s kind of a cross between Monster Hunter, Kessen, and a bit of Dynasty Warriors.

@9 saiyanknight87:
Whaaat? I’ve watched E3 conferences and there is only ONE xbox one exclusive coming in 2014, it’s Sunset Overdrive and it doesn’t even look nice to play at all. Frankly, they won’t “swing into games in 2014″. All the games they annouced at E3 (almost) are multiplatform, and coming on PS4 as well (in higher resolution on top of it). 2015 is the big year for everyone. I even wonder if studios will make less money simply because they’ll all release the same year… Bah. 2014 have really nice games too like Dragon Age Inquisition, Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare and tons of sports games and driving games. There is also nice “HD version” of PS3 titles in case you missed The Last of US! :P And anyway we’ll get The Witcher 3, Dying Light, Bloodborne, The Order 1886 and Dead Island 2 early 2015, it’s not like it’s end 2015 (that’s for Uncharted 4, haha!!). ^_^

Topic: Wow! I’m impressed with this F2P. I love the idea of free to play (as long as it’s not pay to win), I hope this game will be awesome (I loved the series). I’ll play it for sure, count on me.

It’s graphically superior on the PS4 more than the PC version according to the developpers.

I am playing an open beta in the Philippines and the game really good and it is what they said on this article.

There are too many bugs right now (It’s a new game and still on open beta)

I would like to know when will it be out to PS4? (Because it needs to have a next gen PC to play it properly)
