Shiver Gamers’ Lucius II: The Prophecy has officially launched on Steam. The game brings more ways to kill people, more gore, more limb-hacking action, fire-burning antics and city-leveling demonic powers for players to experiment with in the sandbox-esque horror game.
As described on the store page for the game…
“The story of Lucius II continues where the original left off: Lucius emerges as the lone survivor of the burning wreckage his parents once called home, unscathed from the ruthless slaughter he had unleashed.
“He had taken the weak and punished the wicked. He had looked through their souls and found the true selves they had been hiding. “
Basically, this is like Hitman meets the plot of Hatred… no really. It’s almost like if Lucius grows up he becomes the Hatred dude. In fact, part of the description for Lucius II is that players take on the role of a bad guy, playing as the son of the devil. I’m not really sure why this game has flown under the radar of the self-described Social Justice Warriors, but maybe the supernatural element keeps the SanFran crowd away? No idea.
Anyway, check out the rather gruesome and interesting launch trailer for the Unity 3D-powered game below.
The music fits perfectly. That was also a really well done trailer. Creepy, engrossing and entertaining. Heck, this could be a movie! Oh wait, it already is… it’s called The Omen.
Lucius II has already garnered quite a bit of positive praise from the only reviewers that matter: consumers.
According to The Honeybadger…
”A vast improvement on the concept of the original. Now creativity is not just allowed, it’s encouraged. You can plan, plot, and decide how to both use your skills, and your upgrades.”
I think the only thing gamers might miss is that “WTF?!” moment from the good ‘ole game over screen… you know, that one NSFW moment? (A little reminder)
Anyway, Lucius II: The Prophecy is available right now for only $19.99. During the launch week you can get the game for 15% off at only $16.99. Need to learn more about the game? Feel free to visit the Steam page or pay a visit to the official website.
