PC Two Worlds Gets an “Epic Edition”

You’ve got to hand it to SouthPeak Games. Two Worlds fell well short of expectations, but they refuse to give up on trying to fix it up, entice new players to venture into the world of Antaloor, and bring back old players put off by the game’s initial buggy-as-hell form. Before the sequel, Two Worlds: The Temptation, drops on PC and Xbox 360 this fall, SouthPeak will be putting out the Two Worlds: Epic Edition in August exclusively for PC. Gasp, could this be the Dungeon Lords Collector’s Edition treatment all over again? I sure hope not…

For a budget price of $19.99, the Epic Edition will include the full original game and the Tainted Blood and Curse of Souls DLC add-on packs that I believe were previously only available for the 360 version (but don’t quote me on that, I’m not certain). The add-ons amount to “over 70 online quests, eight new multiplayer maps, an innovative player-versus-player challenge where opponents battle to control magical orbs within a variety of arenas, and introduces the town of Tharnburg where players can train their warriors in various skills and challenge other players to combat in the Gladiator District’s huge arena.”

I always heard that the PC version turned out better than the 360 (which is what I played it on), so I may just give this a try. Even in its horrifically buggy state I did find myself mildly addicted once I got into it. But ultimately the extreme choppiness of the framerate and animations were too much to take.
