Earlier today, Topware Interactive posted a major announcement on their Facebook page unveiling their plans for the Two Worlds series. The first of these was confirming that Two Worlds III development had started.

"TopWare Interactive and Reality Pump studios have some exciting news! We are pleased to announce that after earning multiple awards and selling over ten million units, Reality Pump Studios has officially begun work on the third part of our blockbuster RPG series, Two Worlds!

Two Worlds III is currently in the concept stage and scheduled for development over the next 36 months. Keep an eye out for further announcements."

But they had more news as well. To lay the groundwork for the next game, Two Worlds II was going to receive updates to both the singleplayer and multiplayer components of the game. They announced eight new online maps and two story DLC campaigns: Call of the Tenebrae and Shattered Embrace. The first of these DLCs slated to arrive Q2 2016, according to their website.

"The first DLC, entitled Two Worlds II: Call of the Tenebrae will be available at the end of Q2 2016 and focuses on the Hero's return to Antaloor, where he witnesses the shocking murder of DarPha! The killers are a never-before-seen tribe of hideous, rat-like creatures known only as "The Chosen", who control a mysterious, powerful new magic! Their genocidal plot threatens every living creature in Antaloor, and it's up to the Hero to find a way to stop them!"

They also announced a new engine update for Two Worlds II, that will allow for a "higher level of character and landscape detail" along with co-op multiplayer and achievement additions to the game.

Not to mention that the title of the game, two worlds, doesnt reference anything really in the actual game. It makes no sense. There are NO two worlds in the game for crying out loud nor are two worlds ever referenced in the game.

It's an artifact title. At one point in development (if you can call it that) there were apparently going to be two game worlds, but that got dropped without the title following suit.

Can't comment on the games directly, but worth a watch.

So I'm not crazy. I was thinking, "Didn't Projared review these games? Weren't they absolutely utter garbage?"

They're better than the Risen series, although that's like saying they're better than getting a limb chopped off...the bar is set so low it's hovering somewhere around the planet's core.

I don't understand how this is not called Three Worlds.

As for the game, they bribed and threatened their way to a solid 70/100 and sales were good enough that they probably made their money back. It doesn't take much to be considered worthy of a sequel these days.

i enjoyed the first one although it has some of the worst voice acting in video games.. forsooth dear reader twas a shity thing to experience, but it was also one of the most stable open world games and they had an interesting way to handle loot. ended rather abruptly though

still need to get in to the second game

Good to know I'm not senile just yet. And I won't even bother looking at this game, now that I know that the well is poison.

I saw this and screamed YES!. I know a lot of people like to hate on this game, but a lot of people like to hate on things they don't bother to experience and take on other's opinions instead of their own.

I'm so buying this when it comes out. I wasn't expecting a 3rd game, but I didn't expect a 2nd. Guess I need to go replay both.

I know the first game had a lot of low quality stuff, but it had a lot of stuff, and a lot of neat ideas that few people got to see since they likely never even played the game. I liked the alchemy, and the combining of items. I liked the large open world and interesting plot. I liked that the first game ends with you actually getting to choose to side with the bad guy if you want. Not even my favorite game series The Elder Scrolls lets you do that. (The canonical ending is that you lose, and 2 starts you off as the villain's captive).

I hope the online is much expanded on. I liked 2's focus on a separate story, while I liked the more openness of 1's and I hope for a combo of the two.

Really excited for this unappreciated series next game.

The reason no one played the game is that it did not work, and it could not be played. It generally crashed after a very short while, and even when it didn't the game ran at a single digit frame rate. On consoles.

You're right that this series is unappreciated. Not nearly enough people appreciate that they sold a game that was utterly, literally, broken, and they got away with it. I still haven't forgiven them, and I never will until they give me my goddamn ?5 back.

That they have the gall to release not just one, but two sequels now is mind-boggling. They apparently don't even have the common sense to give it a different name, in order to maybe con a few more people into handing their money over.

I wont pretend the quality, especially in the first game isn't where it should be, but I think the series was an honest attempt at an interesting world and genuinely tried to do things in new ways. I don't think they were trying to con anyone. Playing the second game definatly tells me the people making the world actually care about it and presenting an interesting and consistant world. Maybe some people played the games, had technical difficulties and genuinely dislike or hate the game, but I honestly believe MOST people who hate this game are just echoing others opinions and never even touched the game otherwise. The changes and improvements from 1 to 2 makes me super excited and curious what will happen between 2 to 3. I hope they expand the magic, because I like 2's method of combining magical effects to make your own spells.

It's difficult to write anything more than "What? But why?"

This.

I had completely forgotten they were even games.

If I remember correctly, TWT2 had a very good voice actor for the main role, and decent humour. It then followed with an expansion where both those things were gone.

I also hope the teams' UI designer has improved since then, though it's possible they didn't have one to begin with. The interface, especially the inventory, was a royal pain.

For better or worse, that's all I recall from the series.

Ah topware... producers of high quality half assed games.... you will never change.

Shitty dialogue, half decent graphics... terrible UI and the most abysmal fighting non system ever conceived made two worlds a pain to slog through.

I mean in two worlds theres ONE animation chain for a given weapon type that you repeat over and over again, meaning you can stunlock anything into a corner and win. If you have 15 minutes to spare you can stunlock an ogre/zyclops at lvl 1 in two worlds 1 with your starting weapon. (the monster otherwise oneshots you and is clearly meant as late game content)

Not to mention that the title of the game, two worlds, doesnt reference anything really in the actual game. It makes no sense. There are NO two worlds in the game for crying out loud nor are two worlds ever referenced in the game.

They would have had a better title if they simply had called their game "generic fantasy button masher 2000"

At this point im more amazed that topware still exists but THQ is dead...

It's Reality Pump and Topware. The only possible charm here is that maybe failing will finally kill both of them harder than an EA acquisition.

Based on what I've heard the lst one was mediocre at best, and the 2nd one was slightly above average and had a fun magic system. So...third time's the charm?

GarouxBloodline:
Apparently, all of my friends have been lying to me, because I cannot think of a single person that enjoyed the first game in the slightest...

Like I said in the (currently) only FB comment on the article, the first game is good in the same way The Room is.

Elfgore:
I was honestly hoping we wouldn't see anymore of this developer or series.

For some reason, Reality Pump still exists. I guess SOMEONE has to make the crap games.

I remember my friend playing Two Worlds 2, the controls were just completely screwed, like sneak and run were the same button. So if you were trying to sneak while moving, you'd sprint off a cliff, and if you wanted to get moving and start sprinting you would be sneaking because the button was contextual depending on if you were moving or not. I honestly don't even know how I have the second game in my steam library at all.

I just want to remind the people who think that maybe this company has gotten better that they made Raven's Cry and the remake. The voice actors they hire are still shit, they're missing voiced lines so conversations go silent randomly, combat is still shit, and buggy as all hell.

Two Worlds was one of the most unoptimized games I've ever seen. It had constant lag on the Xbox version and ran no better on PC on the lowest settings. The second game was slightly better, but that's like saying a turd on the ground is slightly less stinky than the first. I was honestly hoping we wouldn't see anymore of this developer or series.

but.. but...

Two worlds three is nowhere near as catchy as two worlds two!
And how are you going to differentiate them when you shorten it down? It'll still be TWT!

...well, hopefully they hire some voice actors for this one. Or at least someone who knows how to edit a script. As bad as everything else was, having characters drone at me with stock-standard fantasy drivel was mind-numbingly dull.

The magic system in two worlds two was awsome. Other than that.... meh.
