Silverfall is a fantasy-style RPG using advanced 3D graphics and fascinating storyline, featuring large free-roaming environments, 4 customizable and playable races, 150 monsters, single- and multiplayer (co-op and PvP), ragdoll effects, day/night cycle, particle effects and the latest shaders.

In a world of fantasy where technology and nature fight for power, Silverfall gamers must choose between these opposing forces in order to conquer quests and save the principal city from total destruction. Two companions will accompany them on their journey through the fascinating world of Nelwe, and the decisions these characters make throughout the adventure and during each quest will be key, as choices impact storyline, environment and accumulation of skills.

"Silverfall is a fascinating hack-and-slash style action RPG that offers an immersive and original universe," said Stephen Baer, senior product manager, Atari, Inc. "In each element of this mass environment, from graphical style to storyline, the unique dichotomy of technology and nature pervade to completely engross the player."

Silverfall offers a unique character building system of advancement and equipment that allows for complete customization of characters. Gamers can develop distinctive characters such as scientist troll magicians, elemental elf warriors, or mercantile goblins. Fighting and magic are employed throughout the game, and vary from melee, ranged and technical to light, elemental and dark. Gamers will play through a 25-hour main quest, numerous side quests and two multiplayer modes, player-versus-player and co-operative. With four races to choose from, nine skill sets encompassing more than 130 individual skills, over 100 monsters, and advanced 3D graphics, Silverfall replenishes the RPG genre with a memorable hack-and-slash action adventure.
