Arx Fatalis Update - No Multi Player

by Thomas on Jan. 31, 2002 @ 5:49 p.m. PST | Filed under News

Fishtank Interactive have released their monthly newsletter. Here is the updates for Arx Fatalis:

The sales version of Arx Fatalis is multi-lingual and includes the complete English, French and German localisation. The originally planned multiplayer mode was already deleted some time ago. As it would have constituted a completely new game, it would have been very difficult to meet the schedule. A version with fewer features was out of the question for quality reasons. There are considerations however to offer the multiplayer version as a game of its own. In any case, we have been able to fully concentrate on the single player mode, which now offers between 80 and 100 hours of gaming fun. The trilingual Arx Fatalis homepage is now really online at www.arxfatalis-online.de.
