With darkness descending on the fictional world of Antara's once political stronghold, Nostria, in the form of conspiracies, sabotage and necromancy, players will serve as the kingdom's accidental last hope, fighting back with the services of spells and fantastical creatures to finally restore peace and order.

King's Bounty II is set to release Aug. 24, 2021 for PC (via Epic Games Store and Steam), PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
