Paradox Interactive have announced that they will be releasing a sequel to their very popular RPG title called the Knights of Pen & Paper. Officially titled Knights of Pen & Paper 2, this game brings the role of playing a tabletop RPG back to Android. If you are not familiar with this franchise, it is definitely one of the more interesting ones out there.
Essentially this game, like the previous ones, has players taking on the role of… well… other players playing a tabletop RPG. You will also be the Dungeon Master (DM), or Game Master (GM) depending on your preferred title. Doesn’t make much sense at first does it? Well basically you will be creating a virtual group of friends to play this tabletop RPG which you will also run as the DM. This sequel will bring a whole new set of quests to undertake which includes new dynamic dungeons, an improved combat system, new loot and crafting mechanics, and the biggest change of all – the addition of a ruleset.
Knights of Pen & Paper 2 Features:
• +2 to Impress: The retro adventure makes the leap from simulated 8-bit graphics to simulated 16-bit graphics, providing players with twice the bits
• New Racial Feats: Customize your party members by choosing players such as the Goth or the Rocker, classes such as Wizard or Thief, and for the first time, races such as Dwarves and Elves
• A Game of Throws: Face the whims of the d20 in an overhauled combat system, new crafting and loot, dynamically generated dungeons, and a variety of nail-biting saving throws
• Entirely Too Many Gaming and Pop Culture Jokes: Seriously
When you allow people at your company to dress up in wizard robes and suits of armor, sometimes you wind up with games like Knights of Pen & Paper 2. We’re going to be showing off the game in person this week at GDC. I wanted to reveal it during the DICE conference, but nobody agreed with me. – Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox Interactive
With the above said, we will be going hands-on with Knights of Pen & Paper 2 while we are at GDC 2015 this week. In the meantime, you can check out the first official trailer for this game in the video above. Knights of Pen & Paper 2 will be landing on Android on May 14th, 2015. If you haven’t checked out the first games, you can grab a copy through the link below for $4.99. We expect the same sort of pricing for this sequel.
