King's Bounty add-on in the works

Interesting Russian RPG in demand.

Russian developer Katauri is hard at work on an expansion to well-received PC tactical RPG King's Bounty: The Legend.

Dubbed Armored Princess, the add-on will centre around the titular female and her search for renowned knight and tutor Bill Gilbert. And she'll be accompanied on her travels by a tamed dragon, and a horse that has a chance to turn into Pegasus and fly. What a show off.

Additionally, there will be fast travel between continents, medals for achievements, companions for hire, a new Pangolin race, levelling to 50 and beyond - plus a new engine, skills, spells and bosses.

You'll need the original King's Bounty game to play, and there's no release date for Armored Princess as of yet.

King's Bounty: The Legend is a bit of a treasure, and a remake of the 1990 King's Bounty videogame regarded as a predecessor to the Heroes of Might & Magic series. As such, you'll spot many similarities, both in mechanics and in settings.

Subsequently, the game has caused enough of a stir to warrant our attention. You can expect our thoughts on King's Bounty: The Legend soon.

Retail copies of the game seem rather hard to track down, with Play the only local online shop mentioning the title at all, albeit as a February 2009 release.

The best place, then, to pick up King's Bounty: The Legend, seems to be on digital delivery sites such as GamersGate or Direct2Drive. Incidentally, the US and UK versions come with SecuROM protection.

There's plenty more information on the King's Bounty official website, too.
