Conquer all who oppose you, reclaim your home and take your revenge.
Warlock 2 is a turn-based strategy game of fantasy warfare. Rival against Great Mages, lead mighty armies into fierce battles, wield ancient magic and faith as your weapons.
Experience the challenge in single or multiplayer. Play the new "The Exiled" mode or enjoy the game in the Sandbox mode.
A fantasy wargame like no other:
A diplomatic victory is not an option, you cannot relax until your enemies lie crushed under the might of your strategic brilliance! The turn-based hex maps gives you time to ponder your next move and your weapons are the vast armies that relentlessly march to conquer all that oppose you.
You are the Great mage:
Select who you are from a roster of over a dozen Great Mages, all with different abilities and spells, and choose which people you command on your path to victory. If no Great Mage suits your taste you can even custom build your own from scratch.
Proudly wield your magical power:
Not only a superb battlefield commander, your immense magical powers will also aid you in your conquest. Carefully research over 170 spells and choose what to specialize in, from direct attack spells to terraforming, or maybe align yourself to one of the Gods to harness their powerful blessings. With time, you are even capable of customizing each spell using powerful glyphs.
Diverse worlds requires different approaches:
The several different and randomly generated maps all have their unique challenges and opposition to defeat. Use the terrain to your advantage!
Choose from either engaging your foes on a grand map in the sandbox game mode or the path of the Exiled, a revenge tale full of twists and turns, where you strike back at those who banished you from the world of Ardania.
The people you lead and conquer all bring their unique units to your command. Choose if you want to field a stalwart Human army, command the Undead hordes, use the mysterious Planestriders, or mix and match them all plus others to your delight. There are a total of six different races to pick from, each with their own strengths and weaknesses.
When your reputation grows, random heroes will be attracted to your cause, bringing with them their own special flavor to add to battles. Equip them with legendary artifacts, found or crafted, and make them your battlefield commanders.

I always thought that the first Warlock game was a kind of under-appreciated for how enjoyable it really was. I enjoyed it much more than the price tag would suggest and always thought it was similar to the old Master of Magic, or newer Fallen Enchantress or maybe even Civilization. I hope the new Warlock 2: The Exiled game will finally earn the appreciation and praises the franchise deserves. The game looks even better and improves upon what was already good, providing for even more enjoyable gameplay. The game is a successful mix of several concepts, already known from other games like Heroes of Might and Magic (recruiting heroes and armies), Civilization (expansion of your empire) and Master of Magic (crucial role of magic in your strategy). For every fan of fantasy strategy gaming this game seems like a must-have.
