Codemasters has announced that Overlord II will be released in Europe on 26th June.

"Exact timings are yet to be confirmed, but a demo is in the plan and will be released prior to the game's launch," a spokesperson for the publisher told Eurogamer this morning.

The sequel - developed by Triumph for PC, PS3 and 360 - polishes the areas criticised in the first, and ramps up abilities, beefs up boss battles, features a new Rhianna Pratchett-penned narrative and improves the game engine.

The story's much the same - it follows a growing Overlord as he romps through the land, trampling the Glorious Empire and choosing whether to destroy or dominate the world. There is no good option.

The original Overlord was a solid recommendation but stopped short of spectacular. Our Overlord review can tell you more.
