Two Worlds: "Oblivion Killer on the Way?"

"An RPG game is in the works for the PC and Xbox 360 called ”Two Worlds” that will from today easily become one of the most anticipated titles for the Xbox 360. The official site just opened today and from the info and media available on the site I will say that this is possibly the best looking RPG I have seen to date.

First I like to apologise to the guys at Topware Interactive and Bethesda for my shamefully tabloid headline, because the matter of fact is that “Two-Worlds” and “Oblivion” are not really going to compete against each other. Oblivion is coming out later this month, while Two Worlds is still early in development. We can only thank Bethesda for raising the bar for these type of RPGs, so that developers like Topware Interactive, the guys currently developing ”Two Worlds”, will be motivated to go the extra mile, which they obviously have if what I saw on their website today is anything to go by.

According to Topware Interactive, “Two Worlds” combines the extremely dynamic and sophisticated combat system with the meaning and freedom of exploration exceeding the accomplishments of other games of the genre. Their goal is to deliver a superior Role Playing Game to the PC and Xbox 360 market where players have a real chance to shape the game world with their actions - to an extent that has yet to seen in other productions. The game will feature a strong, non-linear storyline, mind blowing graphics, and stunning combat sequences. Can you feel the hype? However, these guys do seem to have good reason to lay it on thick, and until they are proven wrong, I will shamelessly believe every word they say.

The game claims to offers a unique opportunity to influence the game world - unseen, to this scale, in other Role Playing games. Freedom of choice (like freedom to join or betray various organizations) and the importance of every decision are the core mechanisms to evoke the sense of meaningful play.

Depending on the way that a problem is solved, the player gains or loses their reputation in certain organizations, various options are being closed or opened, quests are offered and new locations are unlocked. For example, a player must decide whether to help a city hold off the invasion of orcs or to secretly open the gates and let the invaders in. The latter decision will result in an onslaught and the take over of the city by the barbaric hordes. The next time the player visits this location, it will be populated and managed by orcs, unless the human army arrives and tries to liberate the city. The world lives its own life, but the player has the power to change it. The challenge lies in finding the right "strings" and skilfully "pulling" them and complete quests and will also be rewarded by different factions accordingly for the results of their actions.

To see what Topware Interactive means by mind-blowing visuals I suggest you take a look at these undoctored screens"

I think the visuals look pretty good, however, since no one has played Oblivion or Two worlds yet, I dont think we can comment.

Oblivion has around 250hrs gameplay (apparently) doing everything, which is bigger than final fantasy 7. But it will all come down to gameplay in the end, not what somthing looks like

Id love for an RPG to come out on the lines of WOW with plenty to do and see and a player vs player system which many rpgs seem to be without :(

that would be good if it acutally incorporated a story line, the only reason wow is so incredibly **** is because there is no point in the game for the majority of it.

its simply find x amounts of y, your reward x amount of gold and a weapon which you already have a better version of. You complete that quest and then its back to the same thing again

i gotta say i loved wow levelled up 3 toons on 2 differant servers, the leveling up was fun and it was more of the community side of things which were great, As for end game content the Battlegrounds the instances all together they were great always something to do and usually never enough time to do it all in :(

WOW was fantastic up to a point, once you hit level 60 the whole ethos of the game changes, no longer can you play for 30 mins and progress, no longer can you enjoy playing on your own or with friends depending on your mood, no longer do you get a noticeable progression to your character with each hour played. It suddundly becomes a game where you have to dedicate lots of sessions of many hours to improve your character at all, you have to do many tedious and long 40 man raid instances just to have a chance at getting one peice of equipment.

PVP could have saved it but they blew that by making it so if you are serious about ranking up you can't do anything but pvp. No alts, no instances, you really need to dedicate your whole time playing to pvp.

Been many months since I've played but I've not heard of anything changeing.

More screenshots and some very short video clips. Looks absolutely beautiful. I haven't played Oblivion yet so i cant compare the visuals. Can anyone?

http://previews.teamxbox.com/xbox-360/1300/Two-Worlds/p1/

This bears more than just a passing resemblence to Oblivion. I'd say Oblivion looks a little better, more natural, there's something a bit off about these screenshots although that's not to say it doesn't look like.

It's not just the graphics that make Oblivion though, its the fact that the game is greater than the sum of its parts. The quests, voice acting, locations, menus, map etc all work exceptionally well and gel to make an awesome game. It will be a significant achievement if this game is better than Oblivion.

That does look impressive but one medieval type rpg is enough for me. An RPG with a bit more of a Sc-Fi, Horror or Fantasy theme to it would imo be better.
