The Guild 2 for PC is an original game that attempts to mix a role playing game with a strategy game to create a realistic (at least partially) recreation of the class system of the late Middle Ages. Once the game begins, the player is taken to the 14th century, an era of unrest and conflict – in short, a perfect place for opportunists and swindlers planning a quick ascension from rags to riches. The successor to Europa 1400: The Guild offers multiple ways of attaining this somewhat far-flung mission.

Gameplay

Unfortunately, the road to riches is steep and long, while one life may not be enough to get what we’ve wanted. Our incredible ability to appear in the right place and at the right time produces many alliances – we can involve up to three friends (each with his own set of strengths and weaknesses) to create a partnership. Some of us trust only blood – our company can consist only of family members, either by relation, or your offspring – the game allows us to start a dynasty, which should be seriously considered by those worrying about the future state of their businesses. First things first, though – we begin as a journeyman of one of four professions: Craftsman, Patron, Scholar, and a Rouge, and attempt to find our way up, with numerous possibilities opening for us along the way. We may be able to become a new mayor, or even be influential enough to have a say in international affairs. However, most of you probably considers the career of a Rouge – instead of living a quiet life of a tradesman, we can embark upon a road of crime, either as a burglar or a brigand capturing convoys and shipments, with the most lucky ones ending as ruthless barons of the underworld or high-profile thieves. In short, the game offers numerous career options, including a politician, aristocrat, or even a priest! The authors focused on freedom and a faithful recreation of medieval society.

Our journey from zero to (anti)hero is reinforced by detailed environments and more life-like characters. The game takes place in real time, which is somewhat understandable – turn-based system could ruin the immersion and complicate the game too much. The Guild 2 allows the players to see the Middle Ages from a multitude of viewpoints, accessible with a little bit of courage and willingness needed to get through numerous obstacles and shortfalls.
