The greatest “giant rocks rolling through historical/artistic ages” tower defense game is back with Rock of Ages II: Bigger and Boulder. Just like the title says, Bigger and Boulder cranks up the surrealism and gameplay with to be, well… BIGGER AND BOULDER. With an emphasis on the chaotic new 2-vs-2 multiplayer, new time periods, and improved graphics, physics, and destructibility powered by Unreal Engine 4, players will need to be ready for some intense rocking and rolling.

Rock of Ages II: Bigger and Boulder features:


  • ACE Team’s Trademark Quirkiness - The Monty Python-esque humor is turned up to 11, as players literally rock and roll through the ages. Humorous animated vignettes will also make a return in full force, so famous historical figures beware!
  • An Emphasis on Multiplayer - A little friendly competition never hurt anyone, so that’s why ACE Team decided to improve the multiplayer feature of the game. Play with up to four players online in a 2v2 match to the death with the ability to customize banners and colors for your “units.” Oh, and did we mention that opposing tracks can now intersect each other?
  • A Positively Absurd Art Style - Just like in the original game, ACE Team has created various levels inspired by the greatest art periods in history. Players will gaze upon exquisite art from the Egyptians, Late Gothic and Early Renaissance era, Surrealist movement, as they carve a path of destruction with their rolling rocks of doom!
  • Improved Physics and Destructible Environments - With upgraded physics and even more things to be cracked, crushed, flattened, and slammed, rolling various rocks down a hill has never been a more pleasant experience!
  • Utter Chaos - With the addition of brand new defensive units and unique boulders with special traits, chaos reigns supreme so be sure not to take each turn for granite.

Roll Throughout Art History in Rock of Ages II: Bigger and Boulder

ACE Team, ATLUS (the game publisher), and Atlas (the Greek god) present the sequel

to the hit strategic, rock-smashing, tower defense game!


IRVINE, Calif – June 2, 2016 – It’s so gneiss to see you again! The genre-bending Rock of Ages – the part Tower Defense, part Racing, part Art History lesson, and all smashing game from ACE Team – returns with new gameplay, co-op and competitive modes, and more in Rock of Ages II: Bigger and Boulder, coming this fall to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One as a digital title. In the game, players will explore the uniquely artistic worlds, and take turns in defensive and offensive roles in an attempt to smash open the enemy’s castle and crush their dreams of ruling the world (by crushing their corporeal form). For the latest information on the game, you can roll on over to find the latest carvings on the official webstone at www.rockofages2.com.

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.

One of the major changes to the gameplay in Rock of Ages II is the emphasis on co-op and competitive play, where up to four players can strategically plan their victory by way of merciless destruction via boulder! There’s also been a complete revamp of how resources are accrued in the game, so players will not just have to defend their own castles, but resource nodes as well!

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: Bigger and Boulder will roll into digital stores this fall for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One! The best part? Go hands-on with Rock of Ages II: Bigger and Boulder in the ATLUS booth at E3!

Cool! I liked the first one, though it seemed a bit short. Let's hope this one is even better!
