'Once Upon A Knight' Coming To The US

Atari, Inc. has announced that Once Upon A Knight (also known as KnightShift), a fantasy-based interactive PC game, is in development and will ship to retail stores in September. Once Upon A Knight combines the best elements of real-time-strategy (RTS) action and role-playing-game (RPG) adventure into a unique and exciting game set in a brilliantly rendered setting where players battle evil, save damsels and are generally noble and just.

"We are excited to be adding this unique title to Atari's catalog of quality fantasy products," said Nancy MacIntyre, vice president of marketing for Atari's Beverly studio. "Fans of both RTS and RPG games will find Once Upon A Knight's style and personality refreshing and rewarding due to its wonderful blend of intense action, exciting adventure and incredible graphics."

Set within a world of treachery, nobility and milk (yes, milk), Once Upon A Knight delivers powerful gameplay and forgoes conventions surrounding ordinary fantasy titles offering a milk-based economy, mother-in-laws, flying witches and secretive knights named Floyd. Players can chose to either jump right into battle in RTS mode, or slowly build up a character's attributes over time in RPG mode.

Once Upon A Knight is set in a fully animated, highly detailed three-dimensional environment that features over 20 missions, hundreds of quests, creepy monsters, 80 different characters, countless spells and weaponry. Once Upon A Knight also offers LAN and online play where up to eight chivalrous gamers can test their skills and battle each other to discover who is the ultimate medieval master.

Once Upon a Knight will be available in the U.S. on September 23rd for a suggested price of $49.99.
