MICROGAMING PREVIEWS SEQUEL TO CASTLE BUILDER SLOT
To launch in the second quarter of this year.
Microgaming has previewed the Castle Builder II slot, a sequel to the blockbuster title of the same name launched in 2013 in partnership with RabCat.
Castle Builder II, a five reel, level-based slot, builds on the original game, which bridged online gaming and social gamification.
An entirely new world will feature in the sequel, with new unlock-able achievements as players level up to build 75 castles from materials collected within 15 kingdoms. Players can choose from three avatars, each with a different storyline and a different feature set, who interact with over 300 characters within the game.
Extensive achievement and cup challenges encourage players progression as they improve their avatars skill level.
“We have had great success with Castle Builder, launching the game to over 80 operators worldwide, Thomas Schleischitz, chief executive officer and founder of RabCat explains. “The second installment provides extended gameplay and high replay value by way of more kingdoms, more levels, and more achievements. By embracing the concept of unlocking content and continuous progression, the game encourages players to come back for more.”
Castle Builder II goes live to Microgaming and Quickfire operators on desktop and mobile in Q2 2017.
“We’ve been very excited about the launch of Castle Builder II, a game that is designed with gamification at the forefront and that successfully sends players on an adventure to build the finest of castles,” David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming said.
“With more characters, kingdoms and castles than its very popular predecessor, we anticipate this game to be a massive success. The focus has been to extend the game life cycle and keep players engaged as they embark on an epic adventure.”
