In Lord of Arcana, players are plunged into the depths of the underworld to fight powerful creatures of legend in their quest to obtain the power of Arcana. Combat is simple yet rewarding, and brutal moves can be performed as you take on a variety of fantastical monsters.

This world is called Horodyn, so named for its first king. At the edge of a village surrounded by a huge forest lies the powerful stone Arcana, the source of all order in the world. It is said that only one with power can acquire Arcana. Slayers annihilate hordes of monsters so that they could lay their hands on Arcana. What power does it hold within? And to what destiny is one with Arcana bound?

A host of gaming design legends have let their imaginations run wild with a bestiary of thrilling creature designs that will prove a fearsome challenge for brave players.

There is a strong emphasis on multiplayer, up to four players can team-up to slay the darkest demons. Doing so can reward you with new items and skills. It is also possible to create your own avatars as well as to produce various weapons from thousands of different combinations. Of course, the adventure can be tackled in single-player too if you’re brave enough to face the might of the underworld alone.

Delivering a highly detailed fantasy world filled with supernatural creatures and sweeping environments, Lord of Arcana thrusts players into a blood-soaked adventure. Featuring dozens of quests, epic storytelling and an intricate crafting system, Lord of Arcanaoffers would-be heroes thousands of devastating weapon and armor combinations.

Players will join the battle as courageous warriors on a quest to collect the stones of Arcana in an effort to regain lost memories and achieve ultimate power. Players can fight their way through throngs of colossal monsters and lumbering beasts, as lone heroes or with a pack of fellow adventurers, in a world where the heroes are only as accomplished as the number of dismembered enemies left in their wake.
