The 1st Free Content Patch (aka FCP1) is soon to be released for Savage 2!

The patch will see the following new additions to the game:


Over the next few days, IGN will be releasing details of the new content.  Day one has seen the release of details concerning armor progression.


Much like Savage 1, players now receive new levels of armor as the game progresses.  Each player begins the game at level 1.  As the game progresses, players receive experience for repairing buildings, damaging buildings, damaging and killing players, healing, and scouting.  As you gain additional levels, your armor will advance between up to 4 different styles.  While the armor doesn't reveal what you have spent your upgrade points on, it does give others a general idea of your level.  Armor doesn't affect gameplay like levels do; it's just for show.

IGN.com has been given an exclusive sneak peak of the new content to be added to the game, and will be releasing full reviews of the new features over the next few days.  Day one of the patch review can be found here.


The Devourer is a hulking mass of vanquished warriors brought to life in an evil entity.  This new Hellbourne unit costs 7 souls to summon.  Slice and dice your foes with a giant meat cleaver, bathe them in corrosive vomit, or launch rotten flesh at them - it's your choice.  While the Devourer does not have as much base health as other Hellbourne units, it gains health and mana by eating corpses.  As it eats more corpses, the Devourer grows in size until it towers over its foes; the screams of the slaughtered echoing across it's vile flesh.

More information about the Devourer can be found in IGN's daily article. 1UP is also doing a preview of some of the new features. You can read their blog here.


IGN has released the first ever video of the devourer in action.  Prepare yourself for a corpse buffet with an early look at the new Hellbourne unit.  The video, as well as a few comments, is available in IGN's blog.

Update: The Free Content Patch 1 is now live!

Wow - great addition.  Maybe now people will play the game. Afro

Yes, the comment sounded weak and spiteful.  But the sad truth is on it's BEST day S2 has half the players of S1 (please, no comments about it now being free - therefore better.  God games are just that - good games).  For me, the game play of S2 has become so cumbersome, and the fun - weak at best - dies after the 2nd game.  I wish this wasn't so.  Anyone want my Ring of Dolphin Masterbation?

I paid for 2 accounts, hence I can comment. Not because I was an avid fan (well, partly avid), but because I hoped it would be better.  Nearly 2 frikin years of false hype, followed by an incredibly lackluster launch, S2 is a dog.  If you guys want an example of a small group of programmers with virtually no budget - that produce winning games - checkout Stardock.  They understand that the customer is always right, and their products are winners.  The improve on ideas - not throw them out the window at the first smell of investment dollars, for a newer 'secret' project.

As a side note, GALCIV2 has 3x the sales of GALCIV1.  Hmmmm... I  smell improvements.

Mailken treated many of us like pricks on the forums.  He took our money early promising a beta, and then delayed delivery.  The final product  - absolute crap.  Tell me - how many fans sites are there for S2?  How many S2 servers?  It's a dead game, even before it gets out of beta (whoops, I meant to say 'gold'.)  Even when you meet him in person, you can smell the 'used car salesman' on him (and yes, I have).

If it ain't broke,... well, you get the idea.  If they had rewritten the original crap code (show of hands anyone?) and kept the original intention of the game - they'd have a winner on their hands.

I do wish them luck - anyone want my unused accounts?  They're cheap!

Won't be good imo. You'll only see more kiting with all new players, which would be enough to scare them off the the game again (as range is not as good as in other games).

Yeah, I will try it - and yes, my comments were designed to make some laugh.  Sometimes stating the obvious does that.

Having said that - there are those who think that S2 is a better game, and a significant improvement.

Yes this is kinda sad to see in a modern game. My name is banned too before shortening.

... still waiting info about the model exporter/importer. I will buy sav2 when it is released.
