Modus Games and Crackshell announced yesterday that the co-op RPG Hammerwatch II is now available for Nintendo Switch. The game is on sale digitally for $21.24 through December 19th, and is also available physically for $39.99.
The physical release—dubbed Hammerwatch II: The Chronicles Edition also includes the original, remastered Hammerwatch: Anniversary Edition along with additional character color palettes, facial items, and the character voice pack.
In Hammerwatch II, up to four players (via online co-op) will journey through Hammer Island, the Fallowfields, and the dark mountainous regions of Blackbarrow, all of which are faithful to the signature Hammerwatch pixelated art style.
As for the story:
Blight the Horrible’s dragon army is seizing the land you once called home and the dethroned King Roland has selected you as one of the mighty heroes he believes can restore his kingdom before it is plunged into darkness forever. Build a custom Herian Hero and choose between five distinct character classes: Paladin, Ranger, Rogue, Wizard and Warlock before customizing your appearance and leveling up to unlock powerful new abilities and skills. Then, gather your closest warrior allies or journey alone to save the throne and put an end to Blight the Horrible’s takeover for good.
Whether alone or with others, action RPG fans will:
- Experience a world complete with day/night and weather systems that will help shape your adventure.
- Aid townsfolk along the way. With an epic amount of quests, there is ample opportunity to be the hero Herian deserves.
- Choose between five distinct character classes for their Herian hero: Paladin, Ranger, Rogue, Wizard, and Warlock. Players can customize their appearance and level up to unlock powerful new abilities and skills.
- Stock up on items found and earned along the way and craft them into useful tools, magic potions, and delicious food.
