Virtual Programming (http://www.vpltd.com) has released two expansion packs for Majesty 2, Kingmaker and Battles of Ardania, for Mac OS X. Offering new missions, gameplay features, and monsters, along with multiplayer matches and a toolset for creating new missions and battles, the expansions continue Ardania’s epic story.
Here’s how the expansion packs are described: “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.”
The expansion packs require Mac OS X 10.6.3 or higher. They cost approximately US$13 each.
