'Arx Fatalis' Coming To The Xbox

by Rainier on March 31, 2003 @ 8:02 a.m. PST

The mysterious world of Arx has been shrouded in darkness ever since the sun disappeared in the year 226 and the son of King Poxsellis moved the whole city underground into the dwarf mines. There are over 40 different races that co-habit the mines including goblins, dwarves, ratmen and giant spiders and tension between them all is building. Now the evil cult of Akbaa seeks to raise a terrifying god to rule the land. Travelling from another dimension and suffering from total amnesia, the player is confronted by a world on the brink of disaster and must save both himself and Arx before the force of evil is summoned to impose his reign of terror.

Arx Fatalis takes full advantage of the power of Xbox, utilizing the unique asset-caching tools for smoother play and the amazing processing power to support complex A.I. Arx Fatalis will also take advantage of Xbox's superb Dolby-Digital Surround Sound and unique hard-drive.

"The signing of Arx Fatalis is a signal that DreamCatcher is serious about publishing great console games," said Richard Wah Kan, CEO of DreamCatcher Interactive Inc. "The game has had great success on the PC, and we're confident that we'll have even more success on Xbox."

"We're very excited about developing Arx Fatalis for Xbox," said Raphael Colantonio, CEO of Arkane Studios. "The console has great capabilities which will allow us to give gamers the best version of Arx Fatalis they could ever dream of!"

Arx Fatalis will ship to stores in Winter 2003 with a suggested retail price of $39.99 (USD). The ESRB rating has yet to be announced.
