Are you beard enough for Swords & Soldiers II? Prove it this fall with the expanded re-release called Swords & Soldiers II Shawarmageddon, coming to Steam and PS4! The critically acclaimed side-scrolling strategy game has been expanded with new achievements and maps, gameplay and campaign improvements, and most importantly: online multiplayer!

Swords & Soldiers II Shawarmageddon is an action-packed real-time strategy experience, where tactical insight, planning, and timing are more important than maximizing your ‘actions per minute.’ It’s an accessible game with charming graphics and lots of great jokes (or horrible ones, if you don’t like puns), but don’t let that fool you - it’s also a great competitive game which features ample opportunity to surprise your opponents with creative strategies and ruthless counter-strategies.

To celebrate the announcement of Swords & Soldiers II Shawarmageddon, we’re giving away the original Swords & Soldiers HD on Steam for the next 24 hours! All players have to do is visit the store page for the game on Steam (https://store.steampowered.com/app/63500/) and add it to their cart - it’ll be yours to keep forever. Pre-orders for the sequel are now available on Steam as well (https://store.steampowered.com/app/703880/).

Furthermore, to get our community involved in the re-release, we’ve also launched a Kickstarter campaign that will see additional gameplay and cosmetic content added to the final release! We’re excited to reach out to our community like this, and work with them to make Swords & Soldiers II Shawarmageddon even more awesome. We had a lot of cool ideas during development that we weren’t able to fit into this re-release, but are excited to now put this into the hands of our fans. Through this campaign, players will also be able to secure beta access, additional in-game flair, and get involved in the development process!

The Kickstarter campaign for Swords & Soldiers II Shawarmageddon is available here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ronimo/swords-and-soldiers-ii-shawarmageddon

Swords & Soldiers II Shawarmageddon is currently pencilled in for a September 2018 release and will launch on Steam and PlayStation 4 at $19.99. For more inquiries, please contact [email protected]mes.com.
