I have to be honest, I have no idea what this game is, and I had no idea there was a first one. After watching the trailer however, I am curious about Rock of Ages 2, seeing as there is a bunch of genres mashed together.
In this part Tower Defense, part Racing, part Art History lesson, and all-smashing game, you’ll help the Greek Titan Atlas recover the weight on his shoulders as he runs through the ages. The problem is various famous rulers from Art History are getting in his way. Impressionism, Surrealism, Late Gothic, Renaissance, and more all are represented in the game, in amazing detail thanks to the power of Unreal Engine 4.
Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder features include:
- Up to 4-person Multiplayer – A little friendly competition never hurt anyone, so that’s why ACE Team decided to up the gate-smashing stakes by beefing up the multiplayer features of the game. Play with up to four players online or locally in a 2v2 match to the crushing death with the ability to customize banners and colors for your “units.” Plus, the tracks now intersect, so you can knock the enemy rocks to get an advantage.
- Utter Chaos – Expanding on the first game with a more diverse selection of units and a larger focus on rock-smashing strategy in Bigger & Boulder, chaos reigns supreme! Just don’t take each turn for granite!
- Improved Physics and Destructible Environments – Developed in Unreal Engine 4, Rock of Ages 2 has upgraded physics. Crack, crush, slam and flatten more! It’s the most fun you can have rolling rocks down a big hill!
- ACE Team’s Trademark Quirkiness – With humor turned up to 11, players will literally (well, digitally) rock and roll through the ages. Famous historical and mythological figures beware.
- Historically Inaccurate Bosses – Take on works of art come to life in boss battles featuring the likes of The Thinker and the Great Sphinx, leading up to the all-powerful final boss in a showdown like you’d never imagine!
Rock of Ages 2: Bigger & Boulder will be out on August 28 for PlayStation 4 and PC and Xbox One on August 29.
