Black & White 2 is the sequel to the bestseller by Lionhead Studios. The action of the sequel takes place in the same world – we go back to the isle of gods in order to rule our nation as one of the gods. The second installment is much more combat-oriented, but constructed is such a way, so as to the beginners can easily get a grip of everything in-game. Whether we choose to war or find a peaceful solution, it is only up to us. If we choose to fight, we will be forced to build an army, eliminate enemy tribes, and defend our cities, and so on.
