'Deadfall Adventures' (ALL) Gets Collector's Edition - Screens

by Rainier on Aug. 30, 2013 @ 2:09 p.m. PDT

Deadfall Adventures is a thrilling and immersive action adventure that seamlessly combines the first-person shooter experience with puzzle-solving and exploration, taking players across the globe.

The year is 1938. James Lee Quatermain is a man of many talents, yet holding on to money isn't one of them. Quatermain isn't all too keen on escorting Jennifer Goodwin, a US agent and former colleague of his, to an Egyptian temple complex in order to retrieve an ancient artifact - The Heart of Atlantis. Neither does he believe in the reputed invigorating qualities of this artifact, nor does he care that a division of the Ahnenerbe, the Nazi department specialized in the occult, is after The Heart as well.


The boxed PC and Steam version of the game can be purchased as a Standard Edition and Collector’s Edition priced $39.99/£34.99 and $49.99/£44.99 respectively, the Xbox 360 Standard Edition and Collector’s Edition are priced $49.99/£44.99 and $59.99/£54.99 respectively. Those who pre-order the Standard Edition through Steam will automatically be upgraded to the Collector’s Edition. In some territories, the same will be applied to the retail version, with more information on the eligible territories to be published in due time.

The boxed/digital PC Collector’s Edition will include:

  • The Game
  • DLC 1: the Allan Quatermain Revolver skin (single- and multiplayer)
  • DLC 2: 3 exclusive multiplayer skins (Arab Mercenary, Arctic Quatermain and Skeleton)
  • Making of movie (DVD)
  • Original soundtrack (Audio CD)
  • Artbook (on disc)
  • Manual (printed, listed here just for the sake of completeness)
The boxed Standard Edition will include:

“What we’ve added to the Collector’s Edition is a real bonus for players; they’ll be able to enjoy the prestigious produced edition that includes a wealth of content that is also great value for money,” said Reinhard Pollice, Business & Product Development Director at Nordic Games. “The game will propel players into a first person shooter with around 70% action and 30% traps/riddles. We carefully balanced the pacing between action and mind work to let the story sink in properly.”

“We are really excited to deliver such a unique title to gamers all around the world. We have been working very hard to make sure that stepping in the boots of an adventurer will be a fulfilling experience for every fan of the Lost World genre” comments Artur Falkowski, Game Producer at The Farm 51. “Deadfall Adventures is a game for shooters and puzzle-solvers. It's not just another story to finish - it's all about traveling the world, exploration and visiting places forgotten by time. Pyramids covered in sands, monumental temples carved into ice, and remote Mayan cities; all of this awaits you in Deadfall Adventures” Falkowski adds.


But life has its ways of changing one's perspective. Quatermain soon finds himself part of a hunt across the globe - from the stormy deserts of Egypt to the icy depths of the Arctic and all the way to the steaming jungles of Guatemala.

In the long-forgotten temple complex, the thrill of the chase awakens the true adventurer in Quatermain, as he and Agent Goodwin strive to be one step ahead of the Nazis and the Russians, one step closer to obtaining the Heart of Atlantis. And deep in these temples, where age-old guardians awake from their eternal slumber, James soon learns that his great-grandfather's stories are not as crazy as he had always believed. For all things live forever, though at times they sleep and are forgotten. 

Deadfall Adventures uses Unreal Engine 3 to produce one of the most jaw-dropping spectacles this generation has enjoyed, as players battle natural and not-so-natural enemies. Along the way, fiendish puzzles, deadly traps and stunning set pieces will make this one of the greatest adventures ever told – let alone played.
