The countdown for the Windows PC release of the long-awaited Kingdom Under Fire 2 — the latest and most ambitious entry in the award-winning series — is on! To prepare players for the November launch of this fantasy epic which combines the real-time strategy (RTS) and massively multiplayer online (MMO) genres, Gameforge has begun profiling the five character classes of Kingdom Under Fire 2.  

Up close or from a distance, the Gunslinger is locked, loaded, and ready to rain death down upon all who oppose him! 

The Gunslinger prefers to fight at the forefront and immediately lock horns with the enemy, usually being among the first to break their lines. A versatile human combatant, the Gunslinger effortlessly switches between a sword and two pistols, utilizing an array of combos to attack both individual targets and unleash area of effect attacks. But he always has to keep his ammunition in check, a resource which can be replenished by stringing together sword combos.   

Mistrusted for the simple crime of hailing from Brimstone, a village of refugees … deliberately ordered on a suicidal mission during which his troops were overwhelmed and his men slaughtered … his request for leniency fell on deaf ears and he was expelled from the army. Seeking to avenge the deaths of his men, and save his own skin, the Gunslinger found refuge in Azilia. In this place of opportunity, he became a mercenary and joined the Azilia Knights.

The Gunslinger is one of five character classes playable in Kingdom Under Fire 2. The full list of classes is as follows: Berserker, Elementalist, Gunslinger, Ranger, Spellsword. 

Originally announced in 2008, Kingdom Under Fire 2 is an MMO-RTS hybrid genre game unrivaled in its epic scale. From developer Blueside, Kingdom Under Fire 2 is set in a world where three powerful factions — the Human Alliance, Dark Legion, and Encablossians — compete for control over the land of Bersia. Players can choose from several hero classes and focus on building up their individual characters or command massive armies as war strategists. Kingdom Under Fire 2 takes place 50 years after the events of Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders and features an immersive story campaign that can be experienced in multiplayer online or in solo play.

 

Kingdom Under Fire 2 is available for pre-order in three packages, priced at $29.99 USD, $49.99 USD, $99.99 USD. Each edition of the game contains exclusive content, bonus costumes, mounts, and more. Those who pre-order Kingdom Under Fire 2 will also receive a hero troop and an exclusive title. Kingdom Under Fire 2 will be available to pre-order from the official Gameforge site at: http://gf.link/kingdomunderfire2EN.
