The story of the game is built around a group of prisoners exiled to the secluded Mount Grimrock for a series of crimes they have allegedly committed. The group will be forced to fight in a lot of life and death situations in which their wits will play a major role. Legend of Grimrock 2 is the sequel of the greatly acclaimed first part of the series that “revived” the dungeon crawling genre. The game features survival, combat, magic, puzzles and role-playing elements. The player will be in charge of a group of four prisoners who are shipwrecked on the secluded Isle of Nex. The island will be filled with many ruins, mysterious tombs, and a vast network of underground dungeons. The group will be fighting to overcome the adversities put in their path by the evil mastermind of the island. The game is set to land on PC this October 15.
