Microsoft Games Studio and Gas Powered Games have announced that their Action RPG, Dungeon Siege II has gone gold and that it will ship to stores on August 16. The title has a suggested retail price of $49.99 and has been rated "M" for Mature by the ESRB.
In Dungeon Siege II, players are cast into a land torn by civil war where they will be up against a vicious marauder who wants nothing less than to bring the world under his control. The developers are doing their best to raise the bar for PC Action RPGs by introducing a deeper storyline than the original, an extensive quest system, and a new AI scheme that allows for a challenging and yet satisfying experience.
Gas Powered Games also unveiled four new screenshots which can be viewed here. For those who like to be sure that they will get a copy of the game, certain retailers are giving away a bonus Dungeon Siege II comic book when the title is pre-ordered.
