Lionhead studios has dipped into the virtual postbag to answer a few more questions about the forthcoming sequel to PC God-sim Black & White. It's been confirmed that four creatures will be available - Cow, Wolf, Lion and Ape - while three more unnanounced characters will pop up later in the storyline.
Creatures start off at around four times the height of your average villager but can more than triple in size, provided they get enough rest and square meals. "And they're much, much, much more advanced," says Lionhead. Black & White 2 will feature two different types of miracles. Standard ones are quick to charge and can be used in two different ways - Throw or Pour. So you can launch a Water miracle to either irrigate your crops or drown your enemies, for example. The other standard miracles are Fire, Heal, Lightning, Shield and Meteor.
