The sequel to the acclaimed iOS strategy game will has been announced and will be released next Spring. To celebrate the announcement Hunters will be on sale for $.99 for a limited time.

From the press release:

    Last February, Rodeo Games released our début iOS title, Hunters. Since then we’ve had a metacritic of 84%, over 600,000 downloads, and two Develop award nominations.

    We’ve learnt so much over the last year, listening to fans and critics of turn-based strategy alike. The biggest feature players asked for was the inclusion of a single player story mode. Which is why the new game features a full campaign mode following the tale of our new hero class character, Caius Black, over a series of scripted missions.

    Also included are new enemies races, environments, mission types and of course more guns and gear! Under the hood, we’ve built a new graphics engine which can handle real-time dynamic lighting along with loads of customisation options.

    Hunters 2 will be out on iPad, iPhone and iPod in Spring 2012.

    To celebrate our announcement we’re putting Hunters: Episode One (iPhone, iPod and iPad) on sale for the bargain price of 69p / 99c for the whole weekend!
