At this week's GDC, Infinite Interactive released the debut trailer for their upcoming Puzzle Quest 2
, set to hit the Xbox Live Arcade this Spring.
Further expanding the Puzzle Quest
franchise, the game retains the same successful formula from Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords
, while adding a host of new features. Most prominently is the "more intimate viewpoint," but a heap of new weapons, spells, shields, heroes, enemies and rewards accompany the game's all-new story and fantasy world, making "every decision meaningful and never passive in the deepest puzzle adventure yet."
Puzzle Quest 2 features its hallmark blend of match-3 gem matching and fantasy, with a simple but meaningful role playing experience where players can choose any of four character classes; War Mage, Inquisitor, Barbarian or Assassin. Each character class provides interesting twists during multiple play-throughs as players reclaim the once peaceful village of Verloren from the evil clutch of the demon Gorgon. Players will be able to level up each character to progress through the adventure in Story Mode or even dive into Instant Action, Tournament Mode, or Mutliplayer Mode for a rich and diverse experience. With the entire Puzzle Quest world accessible on your fingertips in real-time action, players will be able to get a more streamlined experience for instant gratification.
