by Rainier on Sept. 30, 2011 @ 1:30 p.m. PDT

Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

We will update this throughout the day when new announcements become available. Read more for details ...

Atelier Totori: The Adventurer of Arland (PS3)

Alanya is a small fishing village on the Arland Republic's southern border, and it's home to the young alchemist-in-training, Totooria Helmold. One day, she resolves to make the journey to Arland, become an adventurer, and explore the world beyond her hometown. She makes many friends along her journey — some new, some familiar. When her quest comes to a close, your actions will dictate whether she finds the answers to her questions, forges unbreakable bonds with friends, or takes an entirely different path.

Key Features:

  • Travel and map the Republic of Arland over several years, exploring dozens of locales.
  • Synthesize hundreds of items — armor, explosives, ingredients and weapons — to help you on your journey.
  • Classic turn-based RPG combat brings strategy and a sense of nostalgia
  • Several unique endings to experience

Dawn of Fantasy (PC)

In Dawn of Fantasy, players write their own chapter in the bloody history of the war-torn fantasy world of Mythador. From the swamps of ErtheeL'Bala of the Wood Elves to the scorched dragon-inhabited lands of Sssilistra, players explore a detailed world, interacting with native villagers or waging war on nearby armies and trade convoys. Adventurers will complete dozens of story-driven quests in one of three campaigns and interact with thousands of other players through trading, forging alliances, and waging war in both Player vs. Player (PvP) and Player vs. Environment (PvE) battles.

Dawn of Fantasy enables players to build up villages into towns and then mighty strongholds, to manage a thriving, persistent economy, and to lay siege to enemy armies and citadels with great trebuchets, the brute strength of the walking woods, and fire-breathing dragon mercenaries to reign supreme.

Players can play as one of three different races — elves, men and orcs — each of which offers a radically different play style and has been given a deep, compelling mythology and a spectrum of complex political ambitions and subplots.

Dawn of Fantasy is now available for purchase.

Dragon Nest (PC)

Dragon Nest follows the story of a band of adventurers as they battle corrupt dragons and their followers in order to save Verathea, the once pure and beautiful world created by the goddess Althea. Players enter this world, join their friends and battle hordes of evil creatures and boss monsters bent on destroying Verathea.

The addition of Saint's Haven brings a sprawling new city filled with vibrant characters. In addition to the quests that advance the main storyline, new daily quests will be available so players can complete for epic quality rewards.

Today's launch also includes an increased level cap of 32, six to eight character skills, 10 dungeons, and 250 achievements.

Dragon Nest is available to play for free for residents of the United States, Canada and Oceania.

Rise of Immortals (PC)

Rise of Immortals features the popular action-strategy gameplay of traditional MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) games, but adds enhanced socialization features, along with persistent character progression. Rise of Immortals also features a social hub where players can show off their enhanced Immortals, chat, emote, browse leaderboards, shop, update friend lists and more. Players have the option of taking their Immortals through cooperative Player versus Environment (PvE) scenarios to learn the game, try out new abilities, and earn persistent experience before jumping into Player versus Player (PvP) matches.

Key Features:

  • Free-to-play
  • 13 unique Immortals, with additional Immortals released on a regular basis
  • Persistent per-Immortal level progression and skill trees
  • Persistent artifacts for stat enhancements
  • Player versus Environment instances with boss encounters
  • Player versus Player instances with up to 5v5 multiplayer
  • Player versus Bot instances with up to three-person cooperative play
  • Persistent experience and leveling in both PvP and PvE instances
  • Account and Immortal statistics tracking
  • Player hub instances for socialization

Rise of Immortals is available in Steam's free-to-play section. Players who register through Steam will receive several exclusive items, including an unlocked Immortal (a 500 in-game coin value), a limited-edition skin for the new Immortal Trovoc, 200 Petroglyph coins to spend on in-game items, and access to unlockable Steam-exclusive achievements.
