Despite the original’s lukewarm reception, Deadline Games and Warner Bros. are not giving up on Watchmen: The End is Nigh. ESRB has rated Part II of the episodic beat-em-up and has revealed that Part II will be very similar to Part I, but in more exotic locales.
Part II will once again put the player in control of Rorschach or Nite Owl, and features them pounding thugs into submission while hot on the trail of a villain wanted for the molestation of an actress in a pornographic movie. As such, The End is Nigh Part II will take you to the underbelly of the red-light district complete with caged go-go dancers and peep show booths. So it should come as no surprise that this game will carry an M rating.
Unfortunately none of this information addresses the issues that many had with the first part of The End is Nigh. Hopefully Part II will also feature some more variety and a better price point.
