Coming soon: native AmigaOS 4.1 release of Heretic II

Heretic II is a dark fantasy action-adventure game developed by Raven Software and published in 1998 continuing the story of Corvus, the main character from its predecessor, Heretic. In Heretic II, you’re Corvus, an elf-type-man. After killing the Serpent Rider in Heretic, Corvus returns from his banishment to Silverspring, your home, where he finds that a mysterious plague has swept the land of Parthoris, taking the sanity of those it does not kill. Corvus, the protagonist of the first game, is forced to flee his hometown of Silverspring after the infected attack him, but not before he is infected himself. The effects of the disease are held at bay in Corvus’ case because he holds one of the Tomes of Power, but he still must find a cure before he succumbs. His quest leads him through the city and swamps to a jungle palace, then through a desert canyon and insect hive, followed by a dark network of mines and finally to a castle on a high mountain where he finds an ancient Seraph named Morcalavin. Morcalavin is trying to reach immortality using the seven Tomes of Power, but he uses a false tome, as Corvus has one of them. This has caused Morcalavin to go insane and create the plague. Software developer Hyperion Entertainment released the game for the Amiga in 2000. The new release will be optimized for AmigaOS 4.1 and supports new HD modes such as 1920×1080, fully customizable Amiga Input support and all the movies will be scaled and filtered, so no more ugly 320×240 windows as it was with the original Warp OS version. I will also support 3 methods of rendering, software (CPU), MiniGL (old Warp3D) and GL4ES (Warp3DNova). Release is TBA…
