Black & White 2 Interview
6:00 AM | Galen Wiley | Comment on this story

Computer and Video Games.com has posted an interview with Lionhead's Peter Molyneux about this upcoming sequel to their popular God game, Black & White 2. In this exclusive interview, Molyneux discusses some of the various changes Black & White 2 will offer, including the storyline and changes in gameplay. Also covered is the game's current progress, as well as the original Black & White's current status in the market.

Here is a snippit from the full interview:

The little creatures have changed in appearance, so what is the time span from the original Black and White?

Molyneux: If you want to be comparable to human history, then I guess it's like taking them up to the crusades or dark ages when people were going out and battling in the name of Good - even though they were cutting the scrotums off every person they defeated. We're also doing a lot of work on making sure the lands of the countries are very, very different. We found looking at the mistakes we made in Black and White and trying to rectify them - you know, the idea that Japan should look more Japanese, and we're introducing an all host of new technology. A lot of the game will be played in and on the water, water technology and water battles. [Peter points at a water animation]- that's just pure simulation - not a camera pointed at the sea - we've had a guy researching water for two years.

Be sure to check out the full interview for further details.
