Gamesradar.msn.co.uk has posted a preview of Black & White II. The preview goes over the two different campaign types, the new RTS style gameplay, and the new villager programs.
The RTS genre, explains Millar, has become too esoteric. "Lots of games," he continues, "are adding more units and better visuals, but that isn't adding to the gameplay. The way forward in terms of game depth is in simulation and physics, not complex controls." To read the complete preview or to watch movies of the gameplay, scroll down to the links section.
Accordingly, Lionhead has dealt with the engine's increased versatility by simply extending the logical functionality of the player's ethereal hand.
Having units scale a wall, for example, simply requires the corresponding platoon flag to be picked up and planted atop it.
