Oyez, oyez ! Slitherine a dévoilé hier, dans le troisième épisode de sa nouvelle émission It’s Tea Time, la prochaine troisième extension qui apportera du sang neuf ou presque au sympathique remake de Fantasy General. Du nouveau sang jouable donc mais froidement, oui, car il s’agira cette fois de diriger le peuple Lézard, qui une fois de plus a paradoxalement pris un coup de chaud et s’est mis en tête de conquérir, à lui seul, quelle audace, un archipel. Certes, il faut reconnaître qu’après s’être fait expulsé de chez soi, devinez par qui, il faut bien se retrouver un coin de jungle à soi où dévorer en paix. Alors là ce sera les Îles Brisées, comme la fierté, peut-être, mais pas comme la voracité, c’est certain, de ces vauriens de mesquins sauriens. Comme disaient certains barbares et impériaux, il fut un temps, avant de finir dans l’estomac des dits reptiles.

Voilà résumé à la hache que ce DLC proposera de jouer via une campagne d’une vingtaine de missions, et sur une carte ambiance tropicale entièrement nouvelle. Cerise sur le lézard, l’extension apportera divers bonus pour les précédents contenus du jeu (i.e. DLC Onslaught et Invasion).

Communiqué

Encounter, Eat, Evolve – Fantasy General II: Evolution has been announced

It is a harsh world for the Lizardfolk and the young newt Szzlag and his siblings, who have been expelled from their home to carve out a new place of their own in the land. Follow the evolution of Szzlag the Devourer from newt to mighty lizardfolk hero and become the master of the Broken Isles, facing unprecedented dangers from a race of foreign invaders, never before seen by your kind.

A new Fantasy General II expansion is coming.

It is called Evolution, and it will feature a brand new playable faction, a new single player story campaign, plenty new units, new items, a new hero, a new world map and a new map theme.

A new faction: the Lizardfolk

It is a race of lizards who excel at amphibious and sea warfare.

They don’t have any of the normal penalties associated with movement and combat in water, receiving bonuses instead, and can also hide in deep water and swamps, making the sea their natural environment.

The Lizardfolk faction makes use of the existing lizards units from the original campaign plus plenty of new units making their roster equal to that of the other two factions. New marine-themed neutral units have been added too, including giant crabs, huge sharks, seagulls, warships and more.

A new story campaign: Evolution

The Lizardfolk are playable in Skirmish, Onslaught mode or in their new Story Campaign, Evolution. It is a 20 missions long campaign set on a new world map in which you take command of the new playable hero, the lizard Szzlag, as he leads his siblings away from his tribe in an initiation rite. It is a prequel to the Invasion campaign, and will establish the Lizardfolk as a force to be reckoned with.

In the campaign, you can use Evolution points in order to evolve your lizardfolk units, turning them into bigger, meaner and more dangerous lizards. How do you obtain evolution points? By eating your prey.

A new map theme: the Archipelago

Evolution also introduces a new map theme, Archipelago. This new map theme is tropical and marine-based, with plenty of islands, beaches, deep & shallow waters and luscious jungle.

And much more!
