June 3, 2016 Written by Jason Dunning

The sequel to Atlus’ best-selling digital title of all time, Rock of Ages II: Bigger and Boulder is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in fall 2016, developed by ACE Team.

A strategic, rock-smashing, tower defense game, Rock of Ages II puts an emphasis on co-op and competitive play, offering up new modes for up to four players. You’ll also find upgraded physics and a revamped resource system where you’ll have to defend your castles, as well as resource nodes.

With the trailer promising 40% less historical accuracy, here’s what you can expect from Rock of Ages II:

In Bigger and Boulder, Atlas, the Greek God of holding up really heavy things, needs some help recovering the celestial sphere that he might have misplaced. And he definitely needs your help, because all the rulers throughout historical eras are getting in his way; there’s no time to gather moss – start smashing down gates! The conquerors in the game are each representative of their different periods of Art History, from Early Renaissance to Late Gothic, and are presented in the series’ quirky, Pythonesque, cut-out animation style.

Rock of Ages II: Bigger and Boulder features include:

  • Up to 4-person Multiplayer – A little friendly competition never hurt anyone, so that’s why ACE Team decided to up the gate-smashing stakes by beefing up the multiplayer features of the game. Play with up to four players online in a 2v2 match to the crushing death with the ability to customize banners and colors for your “units.” Plus, the tracks now intersect, so you can knock the enemy rocks to get an advantage!
  • Utter Chaos – Expanding on the first game with a more diverse selection of units and a larger focus on rock-smashing strategy in Bigger and Boulder, chaos reigns supreme! Just don’t take each turn for granite!
  • Improved Physics and Destructible Environments – Developed in Unreal Engine 4, Rock of Ages II has upgraded physics and even more things to be cracked, crushed, flattened, and slammed. It’s the most fun you can have rolling rocks down a big hill!
  • ACE Team’s Trademark Quirkiness – With humor is turned up to 11, players will literally rock and roll through the ages. Famous historical figures beware!

Rock of Ages II will be playable at E3 2016 and pricing details will be announced at a later date.
