The bizarre boulder-bowling action of Rock of Ages 2 is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC this month

Are you ready to rock and/or roll?

After its announcement more than a year ago, we haven't heard a whole lot about Rock of Ages II: Bigger & Boulder. Developed by the irreverent minds over at ACE TEAM, the studio responsible for the bare-fist brawler Zeno Clash and the 70s sci-fi shooter The Deadly Tower of Monsters, the sequel to the surprise 2011 tower defence/racing game hybrid Rock of Ages was originally intended for release late last year. Since its delay, the team has remained practically radio silent.

That changed today with the announcement of a concrete release date for Rock of Ages II: 28 August for the PC version and 29 August for the Xbox One and PS4 versions.

To celebrate the impending release, ACE TEAM has dropped a new trailer showing off the game's Monty Pythonesque humour and its somewhat loose take on historical accuracy.

Rock of Ages II ramps up the boulders-to-the-wall absurdity of the first game with the addition of 2v2 online competitive and co-operate multiplayer plus a much larger cast of quirky historical periods and bosses like Auguste Rodin's The Thinker statue and an Egyptian Sphinx.

Rock of Ages II: Bigger & Boulder hits PC via Steam on 28 August, while the PS4 and Xbox One versions launch on 29 August.

If you haven't had your fill of wacky news for the day, did you know that the creator of Deadly Premonition is making an RPG about cats?
