Zeno Clash 2 Announced

By Nick Breckon, May 19, 2009 1:48pm PDT A sequel to the unique first-person fighter Zeno Clash was today confirmed to be in development by independent Chilean developer ACE Team.

"ACE Team wants the next installment to be much larger in scope, so the new game will feature open ended gameplay with large explorable environments and RPG elements," reads a release. "The unique melee combat system that made the first game a success will also be expanded to feature even more brutal and engaging gameplay."

Zeno Clash was born out of a failed ACE Team project titled Zenozoik: Shattered Land. The project featured ambitious RPG elements, with plenty of classes, non-violent options for every encounter, and neutral NPCs that reacted to player actions.

You can read more about Zenozoik on the Zeno Clash board. Check out the trailer for the NPC-filled prototype below:

  • Great news. Especially so when you consider I read an interview with one of the devs the other day in which he said there wasn't going to be a sequel. He said that with such a small team and the nature of developing something like Zeno Clash they'd be focussing on much smaller projects in the future. All I can say is I'm glad they didn't! I suppose the sales must have been pretty tidy to convince them otherwise.

    I finally managed to finish the first off today and it was a blast (had some serious problems with crashes at first). More of the same but with some exploration and RPG stuff thrown in sounds perfect!
