NEW YORK - June 5, 2009
Paradox Interactive today released a Q&A from E3 for their upcoming PC strategy title Majesty 2: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim, which is set for release later this year.
In the Q&A, Tom Söderlund, Executive Producer for Majesty 2, describes the anticipated sequel, which maintains the strategic gameplay of the first game and updates all the key elements. The highly-regarded charm and humor of the original remain intact along with the unique indirect control scheme.

New features implemented in the beta version showcased at E3:
• Campaign assembled - All the missions have been finished and are united into a single playable campaign. We now have lords, great artifacts, and a final boss
• Hall of Lords - At the end of a mission, the player can promote a hero to the status of Lord. Lords can be called upon in later missions, after building a“Hall of Lords”
• Basic heroes can be promoted to temple heroes - When a player builds a temple to any god of Ardania, he can promote a corresponding basic hero to a temple hero. For example, if a player builds a temple to Dauros he can promote regular warrior to a paladin of Dauros
• Magic buildings are now built without peasants - Mages, Guilds, and Magic Towers are built now by means of magic rather than by the hands of peasants
• Tax policy - New control mechanism implemented for tax policy. Now you can adjust the amount of money your tax collector will gather in his rounds
• Opposite hero types are hostile to each other - For example, elves don’t like dwarves and dwarves don’t like elves. They will use some special abilities on each other. There are also other unit types who do not appreciate each other’s company
Majesty 2 is scheduled for release during Q3 2009 and will be published worldwide by Paradox Interactive. It will be available for digital download at all major digital download portals.
