New Titan Quest II dev diary sheds light on the game’s fantastical take on real history

Half reality and half fantasy, THQ Nordic and Grimoire Games’ Titan Quest II will bring some “myth and monsters” to Ancient Greece.

A taste of Greece in every bite

Fans of the original Titan Quest already know the score here. The action RPG featured a sorta-historical setting, but one that was replete with the above-mentioned “myth and monsters”. And if you thought that would be changing for the terrific looking (and long-awaited) sequel, well you were wrong.

Titan Quest II isn’t too concerned with historical accuracy. Instead the game will be telling a story about a Sparta that decided to try and become as powerful as the gods, in order to better fend off the beasts that roam the ancient world. Thing is, that kind of ambition can attract the wrong attention, and in the case of the game’s Spartans, that would be Nemesis.

To keep players up to date on happenings with Titan Quest II, THQ Nordic and Grimoire Games have been publishing developer diaries on the title’s Steam page. These differ from what you might be used to seeing from games just a bit though, as these diaries are printed along with still images, instead of being presented in video format. So yeah, there’s a bit of reading to do.

If you’re as eagerly awaiting the arrival of Titan Quest II as we are though, you might want to click over to that Steam listing and check out the trio of articles that are up as of today. Each one will let you in on a little more of what’s happening with the game itself, and again, in the case of today’s that’s focused squarely on Nemesis, and the Spartans.

Titan Quest II is currently without a launch date, but is in active development (obviously) for the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
