Warriors of the North to be the next PC RPG/strategy gem.

Forget everything else, a new King's Bounty game has been announced for PC - King's Bounty: Warriors of the North. And it's coming out this year, in Q4!

King's Bounty's the brilliant RPG strategy series from Russia that, frankly, surprised the life out of us in 2008. Our Dan Whitehead awarded King's Bounty: The Legend a whopping 9/10, and then our Alec Meer gave King's Bounty: Armored Princess an 8/10 a year later.
