Yep, it won't be long before we get a sequel to Rock of Ages.
No, not the Tom Cruise musical film. We're talking about ACE Team's unique platforming adventure, where you literally take control of a ball of rock as it attempts to work its way through a number of obstacles.
Rock of Ages II: Bigger & Boulder is set to make its debut later this month, providing a mixture of tower defense and racing (with a little art thrown in for good measure) as you smash your opponents. "You'll help the Greek Titan Atlas recover the weight on his shoulders as he runs through the ages. The problem is various famous rules from Art History are getting in his way. Impressionism, Surrealism, Late Gothic, Renaissance and more are all represented in the game, in amazing detail thanks to the power of Unreal Engine 4.
"Explore lavishly developed artistic worlds as you smash hapless enemies and smoosh famous figures into obscurity. With new stages, characters, units, and boulders, ROA2 is truly a bigger and boulder game than the original. Oh, and ACE Team even beefed up multiplayer modes so more friends can now experience the pure pleasure of rolling a large boulder down a hill and devastating everything in sight. Play with up to four players online or locally with customizable banners and colors for each team! Partner up with your best friend to absolutely crush the dreams of your other two, not so best, friends in 2v2 War matches. If you want to prove you're the hardest rock of the bunch, the free-for-all Obstacle Course is the way to go," the game's description reads.
The game will release digitally first on PlayStation 4 and PC on August 28th, and Xbox One on August 29th, going for the price of $14.99. In addition, you can upgrade to the $19.99 pack and get a hold of Classic DLC, as well as the original Rock of Ages, if you don't have it yet.
And two DLC packs will also be released, including a Binding of Isaac pack featuring a special Isaac boulder, along with three special Avatars and three banners, taken from the game of the same name.
