Paradox Interactive Announces Warlock: Master of the Arcane

Warlock: Master of the ArcaneParadox Interactive has announced their newest project, a game titled Warlock: Master of the Arcane. The announcement was made to the crowd at the PC Gaming Press Conference during PAX Prime 2011.

According to Paradox, Warlock is set to be a worldwide turn-based strategy game developed by the same team that developed the Majesty franchise.

The story casts the player as a Grand Mage in Ardania, eliminating others in order to be crowned Warlock. Players will be able to use the armies and spells at their disposal to overcome others in strategic fashion.

“The great thing about Warlock is that it inherits the best elements from classic turn-based games and renovates them with a modern look and feel,” said Mattias Lilja, Producer at Paradox Interactive. “Partnering with Ino-Co Plus to bring this breath of fresh air to the genre is just icing on the cake, they’ve done well to bring the Majesty world to life in the past and we are confident they’ll deliver again.”

No release date has been given as of yet.

I loved Majesty and if Ino-Co Plus handles this game as well as it handled Majesty then I am definitely adding this to my list of games to watch. Paradox has already proven it can handle mages (Magicka) and strategy (like all of their other games). Will this one be a successful combination of the two?
