Majesty 2: Kingmaker, Battles Of Ardania Expansions Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

Virtual Programming has announced the release of two Majesty 2 expansion packs, Kingmaker and Battles of Ardania, for Mac OS X. The expansions offer new missions, gameplay features, and monsters, along with multiplayer matches and a toolset for creating new missions and battles.

Majesty 2's third expansion pack, Monster Kingdom, is due on PC from Paradox Interactive in the New Year, and Virtual Programming has pledged to release the Mac OS X version in the same timeframe.

"Majesty 2 was simply the beginning of Ardania's next chapter. These expansions build an already-robust story world into something even more grand," said Virtual Programming CEO Mark Hinton. "I've been exploring them for several days now, and I keep stumbling across new things. I can't wait to tackle Monster Kingdom."

"I loved overseeing the development of these expansions, and I'm thrilled that Mac OS X gamers get to experience them too," said Paradox Interactive's Fredrik Wester. "Ardania has a lot to offer strategy gaming fans."

Kingmaker serves up a new eight-mission campaign that introduces Lord Blackviper and his goblin army, challenging players who united Ardania in the main game to now hold together the kingdom. The expansion also features a mission creator toolset as well as a Majesty 2 gameplay update that includes: a randomize feature that shuffles non-quest monster dens; random treasure chest goodies; multiplayer functionality; a map editor; and more. Multiplayer lets up to four gamers compete in competitive or cooperative matches over a LAN or the Internet.

Battles of Ardania continues the story with another new eight-mission campaign starring a mysterious mage werewolf who invades the kingdom with his creatures of the night. New monsters and weapon sets, along with four new multiplayer maps, are also included.

Monster Kingdom will conclude the storyline early in 2011 with a rip-roaring finale as the king finds himself overthrown and driven from his palace. In a unique twist, players must turn to monsters for help; former enemies are key to getting revenge on those who betrayed the king. New buildings, heroes, abilities, and guild powers will add to the fun.

System Requirements:

  • Mac OS X: 10.6.3 or higher
  • Intel CPU, 2.16 GHz or faster
  • 1 GB RAM
  • GeForce 8600, Radeon X1600 or newer 128 MB
