Kingdom Under Fire 2 Skips Xbox One Because the Console Isn't Powerful Enough
Blueside, the creator behind Kingdom Under Fire series, recently held a press conference in Taiwan. During the event, Lee Sang-youn, CEO of Blueside, took an interview by local media and unveiled the future plan of the game.
Kingdom Under Fire 2 is scheduled to hit western market between late 2017 and early 2018 with both PC and PS4 support simultaneously. As for the reason of skipping Microsoft’s Xbox One, Lee Sang-youn stated that PS4 is better for the game with massive battlegrounds, especially considering network issues of the console. Besides, the console version will also be different with the PC version.
In addition to console version, Lee Sang-youn also revealed that Blueside is making Kingdom Under Fire 2 VR title, which will make full use of new in-house engine Blueside 3.0. “VR games require more creativity, therefore directly porting from PC game is far from enough” Lee Sang-youn said.
In the event, Blueside also teased the fifth class Elementalist can not only use the middle range magic skills, but also summon powerful minions to protect her. There are 4 classes now available in KUF2 namely Gunslinger, Berserker, Spellsword and Ranger. Blueside has a very organized update plan, and new content updates are planned to be added every 4 to 5 months.
