Summoner 2 exclusive to PS2
THQ announced today that Summoner 2 will be exclusive to the Playstation 2. Developed by Volition (THQ studios), Summoner 2 is the sequel to one of the few RPG's released for the PS2 in 2001. Receiving mixed reviews from online sources, Summoner stood as the only RPG at launch time. SM2 will feature an enhanced game engine, stunning graphics (screenshots!), and an intuitive storyline. Players will guide Pava, Queen of the Halassar, and a host of unique party members through an original fantasy universe inspired by literature, folklore and mythology. There are more than 30 exotic and imaginative locales, from the tropical isle of Teomura to the bizarre and dreamlike City of Masks. Summoner 2 also features an all new, real-time combat system that breaks the mold for traditional RPGs.
"Summoner 2 is a truly balanced adventure that concentrates equally on game play and storyline in order to deliver a true role-playing experience," said Mike Kulas, president, Volition. "Designed from the ground up to take advantage of PlayStation 2, Summoner 2 features expansive environments detailed with refined graphics, an all new real-time combat system, and a cast of distinctive party members to choose from, each with their own abilities and attributes."
Summoner 2 is scheduled for release in fall 2002.
