Rock of Ages is getting a sequel this autumn

Adds four-player multiplayer, new units and more.

Rock of Ages, ACE Team's devilishly delightful twist on tower defence, is getting a sequel this autumn on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Dubbed Rock of Ages 2: Bigger and Boulder, this sequel will continue the peculiar genre-merging mechanics of the first Rock of Ages wherein players deploy defences on a slope while their opponent does the same. Then, each player takes control of a sentient boulder barreling down their enemy's course in a race to smash through the other player's gate.
