Tower defense fans can look forward to smashing a bunch of expensive castles in this pun-filled sequel from ACE Team. The game comes digitally to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this fall.

The original Rock of Ages game was a humorous take on tower defense action. Up to two players could do battle by launching, rolling, and blocking rocks from hand-crafted castles and other various structures.

A sequel is due out this fall, and as the title suggests, it plans on expanding the ideas present in the first title. This time around, four players can join in, forming teams of two to take down the detailed architecture. Get a taste of the gameplay in the reveal trailer seen below.

Footage of Bigger and Boulder looks similar to the first game in a lot of ways, including a focus on crafting, resource management, and the game's art style. All of the environments and structures were detailed in Unreal Engine 4, and the graphics are looking a lot better than the original.

The follow-up's story features Atlas misplacing a major artifact, and struggling to get it back. It looks like the zany humor will be returning in full force when the game launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC this fall.
