Tails of Iron II: Whiskers of Winter Overview

Here’s an overview of the game from Gematsu.

A new and violent “tail” begins…

Set after the bloody conclusion of the original, Whiskers of Winter sees Arlo embark on a violent quest of ruthless revenge against the Dark Wings’ onslaught, while introducing new fearsome monster-hunting sidequests against gigantic beasts. The young rat can also imbue his weapons with a range of new elemental effects and abilities, helping him slaughter foes standing in his way. Enhanced settlement mechanics allows Arlo to rebuild the Rats’ northern garrison of Winter’s Edge, while its new protector explores new and distinct areas of the frontier home to a cast of critters, some to ally with… others to vanquish.

Odd Bug Studio has also confirmed that multi-award-winning voice actor, Doug Cockle (The Witcher 3, Baldur’s Gate III, Alan Wake II) returns to the world of Tails of Iron to provide his immediately distinct gruff and foreboding tones to Arlo’s bloody crusade of retribution.

Key Features

  • An Expanded Campaign of Violence and Revenge – Whiskers of Winter‘s “tail” of Arlo’s fight against the ferocious Dark Wing Bats is an intense experience, featuring a semi-open RPG world set across six varied biomes to explore, and new animal factions to discover.
  • Challenging Combat – Building upon the series’ trademark hardcore combat, Tails of Iron 2 features enhanced weapons gameplay, including four elemental effects (fire, ice, electricity, and poison) to imbue Arlo’s arsenal with unique abilities to use against foes.
  • New Monster Hunting Gameplay – To tip the balance against the new fanged army of Dark Wing Bats, Arlo can track down and overcome 15 gigantic and challenging beasts to harvest their cadavers for rare upgrade materials.
  • Improved Base Building – Construct and upgrade the devastated settlement of Winter’s Edge to gain access to more powerful items from the smithy, tastier meals at the kitchen, a wider range of powerful traps from the shoppe, and more!
  • New Day and Night System – Arlo will face different foes depending on the time of day, with more enemy types added as additional monsters are hunted down and vanquished.

He discovered the RPGFan community a couple of years ago and, after growing up in Western Canada as a "jock," was thrilled to realize that there were others in the world who learned roman numerals as a teenager thanks to the Final Fantasy series. Contributing to the news team is his main objective at the site and it is his goal to project the confidence of Ron Burgundy while keeping everyone from realizing he might just be Brick Tamland.
