An Update On Agarest: Generations of War 2 For PC


Earlier in the year, Ghostlight announced that they’re bringing Record of Agarest War 2 to PC, under its European title, Agarest: Generations of War 2. Recently, they provided an update on how the PC port is coming along on their blog.


“Currently most of the work on this one has been on the technical side of things as our programmers have been busily rewriting and replacing the original PlayStation 3 libraries ready for the PC version—no small task,” wrote Daren Morgan, Development Manager of Laughing Jackal, who are handling the game’s PC port.


He continued, “Until this process is complete we’re not able to fully run the game on PC, so as you might expect I haven’t managed to get my teeth into this one much yet—but I can’t wait! I have, however, been spending quite a bit of time working on a new control method for the PC version.  Adapting the controls hasn’t proved too troublesome a task, aside from the battle system which still needs a little more thought given to it.”


“As you may be aware, Agarest 2 has a different, much faster paced battle system compared to the first two games in the series and it’s proving a bit harder to nail down a mouse & keyboard replacement for the battle wheel.  There’s still plenty of time to work on improving the system though, and we’ll hopefully have it sorted as we go into early testing—I’ll be looking forward to feedback on the control system from our Beta testers a little further down the line.”


Agarest: Generations of War 2 is scheduled for release sometime this year.
