Koch Media will be fully responsible for publishing and distribution activities covering markets worldwide through its local offices.

I am very happy to team up with Koch Media for our upcoming release of King’s Bounty 2 game. I believe that this is a classic example of partnership when the result is much better than just the sum of two parts”, says Nikolay Baryshnikov, CEO of 1C Entertainment.

Our teams in Munich and around the world are going to support the dev team at 1C with all of our local and global publishing and marketing experience.” says Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO at Koch Media.

About King’s Bounty 2

Offering a fresh take on the acclaimed fantasy series, King’s Bounty 2 expands upon its tactical turn-based battles to offer players a truly immersive RPG experience that adds weight to their every decision, whether leading an army into battle against unliving horrors, or building relations with local townsfolk. Experience a rich world that blends realism and fantasy, filled with compelling stories, memorable characters and moral choices aplenty!

Players take on the role of one of three heroes – each a personality with their own background – and experience a non-linear adventure in an open and vibrant fantasy world. Split into two distinct phases, players traverse the realm from a third-person perspective, picking up quests, exploring the wilderness, and getting to know the people they meet. When conflict arises, however, the perspective shifts to tactical, turn-based combat. Players must then make smart use of their units as they fight to win.
