Summoner sequel announced

Volition's role-playing game set to return

Volition are working on a PlayStation 2 exclusive sequel to their role-playing game Summoner, publisher THQ announced today. The follow-up is due out in the autumn and will feature an enhanced graphics engine, a "compelling" new storyline, a new cast of characters and fresh settings on the opposite side of the world to those seen in the original Summoner. Indeed, Volition seem to be going down the Final Fantasy route, with few obvious similarities between the two games apart from the background mythology and some flashy 3D graphics. The developers have even ditched the phased combat of the original in favour of a new fully real-time battle system. More details of the game and its characters, settings and mythology can be found on the game's freshly launched (whatever its news page says) official website, while half a dozen screenshots have also been released to give players a taste of what to expect. More lashings of eye candy, by the looks of things... Related Feature - Summoner review
