Stardock Entertainment is largely known for their sci-fi-themed 4X series Galactic Civilizations, but their fantasy take on the genre, Sorcerer Kings, launched last year to a largely positive response. Now they’re back with a follow-up that will add a whole bunch of new content and features, and allow you the chance to become a god.
Sorcerer King: Rivals will be a standalone expansion adding a new victory condition, requiring you to learn the Ascension spell and consume the shards to ascend to godhood. The titular rivals will be working to prevent your rise to immortality. There are also two new races with the dwarven Frozen Realm and the undead legion of the Necromancer faction.
The Sorcerer King has three new lieutenants taking the forms of a dragon, a serpent, and a bird with which to ruin your kingdom’s expansion. You’ll also gave new quests to lead you to better crafting recipes and armaments for your forces. You’ll also have access to a quest editor which will let you build your own storylines and decide on your own rewards.
Sorcerer King: Rivals launches this September.
