Katuri's King's Bounty games have been a series of small evolutionary steps rather than anything revolutionary, but who can grumble when they offer such hexcellent turn-based tactical RPG fun? The latest, King's Bounty: Warriors of the North, will launch for PC on October 26, publisher 1C announced today. It was originally slated to launch in spring.

Warriors of the North adds a new Viking-tastic campaign said to take sixty hours, with new units, abilities, an army of valkyries at your beck and call, and all that jazz.

The regular edition will cost $29.99, while a 'Valhalla Edition' with a unique armour set and digital goodies will be $32.99. You can pre-order now from stores including Steam and GamersGate for $26.99, including a free upgrade to the Valhalla Edition. It's a Steamworks game, so it'll get on your Steam account either way.

See, Warriors in the North is a lot like a King's Bounty game, with some new stuff:

      I love the art style of the series, one of my favorites. It's so meticulously detailed and quaint. It reminds me of those Disney miniatures and the like that are tiny painted dioramas on a pedestal, like such:

      Are they going to do anything to refresh the gameplay? The first 2 got really repetitious long before the game ended.

      I need to get on the first 3 ones I already own. I love HOMM and this seems just like it. Too bad that there is no MP though.
