The story follows straight after the prequel ended, when the Nameless Traveller, who turns out to be a Prince in an unnamed country, rescued Ecstatica from the doomed town of Tirich. The Prince returns to his kingdom with Ecstatica, planning to get married, only to find out that his castle had been savagely pillaged and plundered and his people have been brutally massacred by demons, goblins, and human barbarians. Just as they arrive at the drawbridge, a winged demon flies by and kidnaps Ecstatica while the Prince is knocked unconscious by another winged demon, only to wake up and realized he has been put into the castle's pillory. However, the Prince is revitalized and set free by a mysterious female voice that urges him to defeat the evil Archmage to restore the balance of the world by restoring the 7 Elder sign and at the same time to rescue his beloved Ecstatica from the Archmage before she is used as a sacrifice.
The game play remained similar to Ecstatica, with improvements to the game's controls and more detailed Ellipsoid graphics. The play area was much larger than the first title and offered free-roaming gameplay involving exploration of the castle. Enemies also respawned after a certain period; however, they were easier to kill than in the original game.
The Prince could pick up various swords with different strength and reach. The Prince could also use magic attacks against his foes by either equipping a staff or learning spells from scrolls.
