Independent developer Cornfox & Brothers today announced that The Golden Edition for their action fantasy RPG, Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm, is now available on Apple Arcade for iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV. The biggest update since its exclusive iOS release in 2019 sees improvements in everything from performance and graphics to game mechanics and level design, as well as new content additions.
“We’re streamlining and enhancing the play experience dramatically with this update in addition to expanding with new content,” said Heikki Repo, Creative Director of Cornfox & Brothers. “The Golden Edition of Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm is, essentially, the best and most approachable version of the game. And we have more to come, so enjoy The Golden Edition and stay tuned!”
The Golden Edition brings two expansions: The Shield of Chronos, which adds a new quest, a new dungeon as well as a shield that deflects projectiles, and The Criminal Hunt, bearing a series of mini side quests tasking players to chase down bandits such as Sir Stingalot and Baron Slimethorn. Additionally, as per community request, Cornfox & Brothers have expanded the game’s ending with never-before-seen scenes, intertwining both Oceanhorn chapters. Lastly, Oceanhorn 2 receives a slew of Quality of Life improvements and bug fixes, including an optional 60fps mode, a stunning new physics-based water simulation, overhauled menus, improved gameplay communication, new spoken dialog, and fresh music.
Prequel to the acclaimed Oceanhorn: Monsters of Uncharted Seas, Oceanhorn 2 follows the adventures of a young Knight who sets out on a magical journey across vast regions of Gaia to defend the lands and people of Arcadia from Warlock Mesmeroth’s Dark Army. This time, the protagonist is joined by two other characters – Trin, the granddaughter of Arcadia’s leader Archimedes, and Gen, a mysterious robot wielding an old Samurai weapon. Players control characters with contextual commands during tactical battles and puzzle-solving. Featuring gorgeous Zelda-esque visuals, Oceanhorn 2 offers open-world exploration, hack ‘n slash combat, and a variety of puzzles and quests that amass into a polished 20-hour action-filled RPG adventure, currently available on Apple Arcade.
