King’s Bounty II

1C Entertainment and Prime Matter recently issued a first update for the Switch version of King’s Bounty II, bringing it to version 1.4. It contains gameplay adjustments and changes, fixes, and more.

Below are the full patch notes for the King’s Bounty II version 1.4 update:

System: Switch
Release date: August 24, 2021
Developer: 1C Entertainment
Publisher: 1C Entertainment / Prime Matter


Over the past few years, the turn-based strategy genre has become awash with new entries in some of its most landmark franchises; in retrospect, it should have seemed inevitable that someday, eventually, King’s Bounty would return on modern hardware. But I doubt that even longtime fans of this dormant franchise had expected to witness such an ambitious reinvention of the series’ name. Sure, at its heart, King’s Bounty II is still a grid-centric, turn-based strategy game with a traditional medieval setting, but with this new release, 1C Entertainment and Prime Matter have attempted to integrate more immersive role-playing elements, a grander world, and a completely different pace than the last game in the series. And while some of these new ideas can be well-executed individually, I left King’s Bounty II feeling unimpressed by the package as a whole.

One final trailer has come in for King’s Bounty II. The game has just released on various platforms, including Switch, and today’s video celebrates the news.

Here’s the full trailer:
