More Overlord II screens give us excuse to talk about Overlord

10:40 AM on 03.19.2009 // Jim Sterling

Apparently, Codemasters didn't have room in its email to give us more than two screens with yesterday's dev diary, and has provided three more pretty pictures for Overlord fans to gawp at. I don't really mind, however, because I'll grab any excuse I can to talk about the evil dictator simulator.

The majority of the assets coming out so far revolve around "Nordberg," a new snow-covered setting where The Overlord begins his adventure as a young "Overlad." These screens show off yetis and wolves, which The Overlord's Minions now seem able to commandeer and ride into battle. This, I like. 

From the early looks of things, Overlord II is shaping up to be as fun as the original, but with a number of improvements that should hopefully push it into golden territory. I'm hoping it'll be at E3 in some way, shape or form. I really need to try it out sooner rather than later.
