Oh sure, you’ve been exiled from your homeland of Ardania by your enemies and the world has been shattered into several shards. It could hardly look much worse, but what’s the point of living if you can’t crack a smile at some terrible puns everyonce in a while – as you go about seeking revenge on those that did you wrong?
Warlock 2: The Exiled is a 4X turn-based strategy game for PC with a fantasy setting, in which you build your empire and do battle across multiple planes. If that’s gobbledegook to you, just think of Civilization with Great Mages, magic spells, armies of rat-men, wolf-shaped cities and an oddly quirky sense of humour; don’t let the rather serious cover art fool you.
Today actually marks the day that it gets even bigger, as the expansion Wrath of the Nagas presents you even more foes to fight against, with a pair of new Great Mages and the amphibian Naga to do battle with in a new campaign. To celebrate, we’re giving away five copies of the main game, which came out earlier this year.
Rather than just give away the base game though, we’ve actually got the digital equivalent of gold dust on our hands (which I hear can be a rather useful ingredient when making potions). In tandem with the DLC’s release, Warlock 2 is currently on sale on Steam and is also being made available for Mac and Linux today, but the Lord edition and Great Mage editions have been taken off the digital store shelves.
We’re giving away the Great Mage edition, which was previously sold for £38 and adds a ton of extras both in game and out:
- Soundtrack for Warlock – Master of Arcane
- Soundtrack for Warlock 2 – The Exiled
- Digital Novel – The Great Mage Game – A story of action, intrigue and wizardry, set in the Warlock universe. Written by acclaimed fantasy and sci-fi author John Helfers.
- Digital Artbook – 42 full-color pages of beautiful artwork from the Warlock 2 game: Great Mages, Enivonments and Units
And 7 in game items, including:
- Domain of Death – Start your quest in the land of the dead!
- Magic is Fun – The lord known as The Magical Genius is available to your cause!
- Elementary, My Dear – Adds three new deadly elemental spells to your arsenal towards world domination!
- Chants of Light – Gives access to three new magical powers, including a powerful Lord Summoning ability!
- Frost Power – A former Great Mage who seeks retribution offer his services to you!
- Half-of-Everyone – Nobody knows him, but this Jack-of-all-Trades can be the best ally by your side!
- Ancient Dragon – A new Great Mage – the Ancient Dragon – joins the fray, and wants to show who is the greatest mage of all! Start as a huge almighty dragon who does not need any starting city. Be your own capital and conquer everything you want!
