"Arc The Lad: End of Darkness" follows the young warrior Edda as he fulfills his destiny as a hunter and comes to realize a sense of responsibility to save civilization from a terrible unnatural threat. Players are able to assume the role of Edda and 24 other characters from the "Arc The Lad" series, utilizing melee strikes and powerful magic attacks through a real-time combat system to restore peace to the weakened world. As they overcome enemies, players will acquire cards which will impart new skills and abilities.

For the first time in the "Arc The Lad" series, players can take the adventure online and play cooperatively with up to four players through regular and online-exclusive missions, taking on powerful enemies and acquiring rare cards. Player vs. player gameplay has also been included, with up to eight players fighting alone or in teams to test their mastery in battle.

'“Arc The Lad: End of Darkness' marks a huge leap for this beloved RPG series with intense real-time combat and online gameplay,” said Jeff Lujan, Business Director at Namco Hometek Inc. “The game's massive selection of playable characters, wide array of rare items and well-crafted storyline will have players reliving the adventure again and again, either alone or with friends online.”
