Downloadable content for Overlord II has arrived on PSN and Xbox Live today, according to a press mail from Codemasters.
The Battle Rock Nemesis DLC contains the ‘Battle Rock’ arena in the Netherworld which plays host to a series of new combat challenges as the player progresses through the game.
Gamers harvest life force as they wreak havoc upon Nordburg Hunters and Gnomes in practice rounds and then take on foes, including the Satyr, the Empire’s Champion, and the Phoenix in a series of boss battles. Successful battles will net players new rewards including more powerful spells and in-game items for the Overlord and his Minions.
On Xbox 360, players can earn Achievements worth 100 points through winning the boss battles.
The ‘Battle Rock Nemesis’ downloadable content will run you £3.19/$5.00 on PSN and 400 MS Points ($5.00/£3.40) with the PC version to be announced soon.

Rather large wolves, to be quite frank. More like wargs, even.
Pretty scary imagining one of these coming for you. Just look at the villager’s faces. No wonder they look so scared.
Overlord II’s out for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in June.

Codemasters has put out a dev diary of Overlord II (after the break) explaining how Overlord sex gave rise to the sequel’s protagonist.
Honestly. There’s plenty of in-game footage there. Very swish it looks, too.
HD consoles and PC this June.

Codemasters has confirmed that Rhianna Pratchett is to script Overlord II.
“For a relatively new entertainment medium, it’s a sign of great progress that the industry is being recognised by the Writers’ Guild in this way. Writing for games is part alchemy, part narrative woodwork and part swimming in shark infested waters wearing ham pants, so it’s a real honour to be nominated for Overlord. The Overlord titles are fantastic creative projects and Triumph and Codemasters make a talented and supportive team who keep some of those sharks at bay,” said Pratchett.
“It’s a real pleasure to be back in the evil writing seat and taking the Overlord and the Minions to new lands and new adventures for the 2009 titles.”
The game’s out next year.

Codemaster confirmed Overlord II overnight, this IGN report telling that the Triumph Studios-developed game will release in 2009 for 360, PS3 and PC.
From the piece:
Overlord II, “massively increases the scope of the original concept,” according to Lennart Sas, director and Overlord lead at Triumph Studios. The game introduces a new Overlord, hinted at in the final scene of Overlord: Raising Hell, for a clash between him and a Roman-inspired empire which has plans to root out all magic and take over the world. The game moves beyond the fantasy realm of the first to something closer to our own, allowing the game’s humor and satire to hit closer to home. Politics, environmental issues and more are up for parody in this game, though we wouldn’t be surprised if a fart joke or two slip in.
