As a tower defense strategy game, TopWare's newly announced Two Worlds II: Castle Defense certainly falls out of our scope of coverage. However, since it's set between the events of Two Worlds and Two Worlds II and provides "back story about the conflict between Gandohar and the Orcs of Antaloor", it's worth mentioning it - if only for the sake of reference.
