Don’t you just hate it when a developer announces the release date for a highly anticipated game and it’s months and months away?
Well, Stardock has saved you some worries – the release date for the new Rivals standalone expansion for Sorcerer King has been announced and it’s September 22. That’s like, today!
Rivals adds all kinds of new goodies to SK, including an updated UI, two new playable races (Dwarves and Undead), and 3 NEW powerful archnemesis to fight. But most importantly, it introduces a whole new way to play (and win!) the game. Instead of taking down the eponymous sorcerer king before their ascension to godliness, now players can take his place and achieve godhood all their own!
Rivals also brings new modding and quest tools to the table. Do you think that you can make the game better? Yes? Good, now you’ll get a chance – custom quests, maps, tiles, units, and heros. Even better, you can share your creations with others via the Steam Workshop. So once you’ve beaten (or usurped) the sorcerer king to your heart’s content, you can sample content created by other players – or make your own!
We’ve been covering Sorcerer King and the Rivals expansion as well. Rivals is available on the Steam Store for $29.99, and includes all the content of the base Sorcerer King. Players who already own SK can purchase Rivals for $14.99. Obviously we’ll have our review up soon, so keep checking here for more coverage.
