Dungeons 2 goes gold digging in 2015


If EA's reboot of Dungeon Keeper was just too innovative, Kalypso Media will hopefully have a better experience for players with Dungeons 2. Developed by Realmforge Studios, the dungeon management simulator will be ready for overlords everywhere in 2015.

The game will have an "extensive" single player campaign mode, as well as four competitive modes supporting up to four players. The game features dungeon management in the underworld and real-time strategy in the overworld to deal with the pestilence called humanity.
