Electronic Arts has announced that they are publishing a sequel to id Software’s Orcs and Elves through their mobile publishing arm, EA Mobile, reports MobileIndustry.biz.
The original Orcs and Elves is a story-driven action/RPG. Players take the role of an elf as he attempt to retake a Dwarven city from an invading force. There are no details as yet about the sequel.
“Orcs and Elves changed a lot of people’s perceptions by showing that you could build an easily accesible, story-rich RPG for today’s mobile phones,” said Travis Boatman, VP of worldwide studios at EA Mobile. id Software’s John Carmack called the sequel a “polished gem” and said that the sequel will open up new parts of the world while “improving all elements that were loved about the original game.”
The game is in development now at Fountainhead Studios and is scheduled for release this Christmas.
