Two Worlds II: Echoes of the Dark Past DLC Available

A while back, we were promised two new pieces of DLC for Reality Pump Studios' action-RPG Two Worlds II - Call of the Tenebrae and Shattered Embrace. But now, without much fanfare, another piece of DLC entitled Echoes of the Dark Past has popped up on Steam. Going by the official description, Echoes of the Dark Past is a three-map multiplayer adventure that adds over 300 new items and bridges the events of Two Worlds II and Call of the Tenebrae.

Here are some additional details and the feature list:

Even in the darkness that has enshrouded Antaloor, old friendships burn brightly! When Doctor Lavarius, your old friend from Veneficus University in New Ashos sends you an unexpected letter asking for help, you quickly rush to his aid... and the riches that usually follow his schemes!

It seems that the good Doctor has learned of some curiously abandoned structures located deep in the forgotten Eastern Regions. Local legends claim that they were built by the Tenebrae, the cursed order of vile monks who once mercilessly ruled Antaloor with an iron fist.

The legends also say that no human has entered these structures since the Order perished centuries ago... and that a great source of ancient evil still exists deep in their depths, located in an underground lair!

But those are just legends! No one truly believes those childish tales! Besides, the stories were likely created to scare off intrepid explorers looking to uncover the priceless Tenebrae artifacts and secrets. Perhaps there are even lost Tenebrae technologies down there, worth more than a mine full of gold!

Come to think of it, you’d better hurry; the University has more leaks than a rotten boat and there’s no telling how many cutthroats and treasure hunters have already heard about the doctor’s discovery. If you want the treasures within, you must make haste before the rabble beats you to them.

As you enter the first dungeon, the giant stone gate slams shut behind you. You are met with only silence. And yet…it seems as if the darkness is not empty.

Slowly, the sounds of claws on stone and guttural moans reach your ears…and they’re coming closer.

You fire your torch and unsheathe your blade- it appears that there’s more to the legends than you thought. A grin touches your lips. Let them come!
