Like its wildly successful predecessor, Black & White, the sequel is all about moral choices.
The land, however, has transformed itself. The inhabitants of this breathtaking 3D world have lost their innocence and developed new weapons and technology. As you enter this warring world, will you make tribes coexist peacefully; encouraging villages and towns to grow into sprawling metropolises, or prompt them to inflict their will upon others by, creating and commanding large armies that seek to dominate and conquer?
Creatures in the game have grown too. They can learn strategies, master new abilities and skills, lead armies into battle and be your ultimate unit. Black & White 2 includes other new elements, such as improved graphics and miracle effects such as rivers of fire and earthquakes that yield massive destruction.
Every choice you make will have an impact. Each action and inactions prompts obvious changes to buildings, flora and fauna, all morphing to reflect your personality.
I hope you guys are staying healthy as a new version of the Redux mod is nearing its public release. Most probably this version is content-wise the biggest so far. The AI got some neat changes preparing it for a future patch, how the game represents good and evil was improved, the influence system received a major overhaul and the most outstanding part the remastered music.
As you might've guessed I couldn't do so much work alone in this short period of time, so I want to point out many, many thanks to Vociferous who did all the music and textures and we are really excited to hear your thoughts about the new update. Also make sure to check out Vociferous' youtube channel which you can find right here: TFS | Vociferous
First of all the music. Vociferous did an awesome job remastering many of the Black & White 2 soundtracks. Currently finished themes are:
In addition to the music listed, it is planned and already partially done to recreate the Black & White 2 combat music. However it doesn't made it into the current patch as it isn't fully finished yet.
If you want to have a taste of the new music you can listen to the hurricane, earthquake and volcano themes on newgrounds: Apocalyptic themes
Next up the textures and the with them connected ambience. We thought that good and evil wasn't represented at its full potential so far, so we decided to give the textures a bit more personality, as the good textures are generally a bit brighter now whileas other good alignment textures were changed in color drastically. Also the evil textures generally received a darker look to them.
Besides you might know the system in Black & White 1 where sky colors and lightning were altered when you moved inside the influence ring of another god. This is now also integrated into the Redux mod. To conclude the textures and ambience you can see two screenshots below which show the gods playground with the new changes:
As already mentioned the new patch will also feature a completely changed influence system, shifting the focus of placing the buildings nearby the influence ring to maintaining a large population which in the end will extend the influence for the most part.
Most significantly buildings don't have an own influence ring anymore as the town centre is now the only base of the influence ring which gets stronger the more villagers and the more buildings you have.
Below you can see a town equipped with the new influence system with around 275 villagers:
In the end here is the full change log for the next patch. You can also find the changelog in the forum:

Lionhead Studios go far into the past, their roots lay in the Bullfrog which made really good and innovative games like Syndicate, Dungeon Keeper, Populous, Powermonger, Magic Carpet and a few more. These were really, really advanced games for that time when they were released. However, they split up and most of them went to Lionhead studios, who started the series called Black & White. The first one was really original, the theme is always the same. You're a god, and it's up to you what you'll…
