fantasy general ii empire aflame xbox

Back when the weather was warmer and the world was beginning to open up again, Fantasy General II released on Xbox One and PS4 to some rather decent acclaim. In fact, our own review of the game talked about the huge depth to the gameplay, and how it provided some of the very best RTS elements. Now though that depth has increased with the addition of two brand new gameplay chapters that include more of what originally made Fantasy General II so well loved. 

Available to purchase and add into your Fantasy General II base game right now are the Empire Aflame and Onslaught DLC packs. Both are priced at £12.49 and that price point alone pretty much points to the sheer amount of content which is included in both. 

Whilst you’ll quite obviously need the base game of Fantasy General II in place prior to even considering either pack, if you’re looking to enhance your experience massively, these seem to be a bit of a no-brainer. 

The Empire Aflame pack continues the Keldonia campaign with a fully entwined story that features more than 40 maps. With a new faction to enjoy, additional environments, plenty more unit types and a variety of new main heroes, it looks set to utterly twist up what you thought you knew about Fantasy General II. When you then also throw in the fact that it includes additional vendors and training options too, and well, if you’re looking to decide the fate of a fallen Empire, this is the one for you. 

Features include:

  • A branching story campaign: over 40 maps allow you to play completely different campaigns.
  • Shadow Forces: A swarm of demonic creatures that can infect settlements and transform them into shadows portals
  • New Faction: Play as the Empire and experience a very different style of campaign with new faction rules.
  • New environments: Winter has come to Keldonia with two new map themes
  • New units: 5 new Frost Trolls and 5 different types of Shadow Creatures roam the land. New secondary heroes such as Szzlag the Devourer and Ocram, the Transmuter each with their own skill tree.
  • New Main Heroes, New Skills: Moira, the young Transmuter and Filos, the haughty general, all with new faction abilities and skill trees. These will also be added to the Onslaught campaign roster!
  • New Vendors – make use of various merchants and vendors
  • New Training – your heroes offer new training to your units from the start of the campaign.

Sitting pretty alongside that though is the Onslaught addition. Similarly priced you’ll find that this adds in 13 brand new aerial units with Eagle BVombers, Firebirds, Monster Hunters and Pegasus Flamers all in tow. And seriously, if you don’t want a Firebird in your team, what the hell do you want? It is Onslaught which also plays host to more than 30 new procedurally generated maps, allowing for a host of replayability, along with a new offering for the Invasion campaign. 

Features include:

  • 13 new aerial units including Giant Eagles, Nightmares, Flamethrowers, Hunters and Firebirds
  • A campaign of over 30 procedurally generated maps to choose from providing massive replayability, where you select your preferred hero and go on the hunt for the Book of Krell and face The Unspeakable
  • A new map for the Invasion campaign introducing the aerial units and a Barbarian Clan of Eagle Riders.

Should you be looking to take Fantasy General II to the next level and feel that the addition of either of these add-ons is going to be for you, hit up the Xbox Store right now using the links above. You’ll probably find them available on PS4 too. 

However you pick them up, let us know what you think of the additions. The comments are down below.
