Zen Studios has announced a sequel to CastleStorm – Definitive Edition which will add a strategic conquest side to the original combination of tower defense, hack and slash and ballista badassery.
A new undead threat has arisen in the Castlestorm universe, pitting players against killer zombies and headless horsemen in an upgraded version of the original combat. The sequel's gameplay is designed to be widely accessible while also engaging hardcore strategy fans.
Castlestorm II has a randomly generated world map which allows players to go beyond building castles to developing a mighty empire. Six different campaign game modes feature memorable heroes, and the gameplay is a mixture of skill and turn-based strategy.
Castlestorm II is due to launch later this year.
