Eschalon Book 3 RPG To Enter Beta This Month

Posted by , 2 January 2014 at 1:25 pm UTC / 5974 views
The popular Eschalon Book RPG series is due to get it's third and final instalment this year with a beta test due to start very soon!


The final release as we mentioned before will come on February 14th this year, so even if you don't get into the beta you won't be waiting long after!

Teaser Video

Eschalon: Book III brings the trilogy to a climactic end as you seek to uncover the mystery of your past, the secrets of the Crux stones, and who the Orakur really are. You’ll traverse miles of virtual wilderness and dungeons, filled with secrets and danger, in an unparalleled role-playing experience designed to feel like a true pen-and-paper RPG.

• Dozens of fan-requested features and updates to the engine and rule set.

• Hundreds of graphic updates including re-rendered tiles, new spell effects, and enhanced environment effects. New sound effects and music in crystal-clear HD audio via an updated sound engine.

• Expanded stats for creatures give them new abilities, defenses and vulnerabilities. Combat will require new levels of strategy.

• New spells and hundreds of new items for you to discover. A huge world filled with secrets, riddles, traps, treasure, and glory awaits you!

• Book III is not a dumbed-down “RPG for the masses”. Rapid button clicking won’t save you here. Eschalon pays honor to the greatest RPGs of the past, with unlimited character development options and freedom to explore the world as you wish. The difficulty of the game does not scale to your character.

• Developer tools to be released shortly after the availability of the game. Build your own maps and make your own adventures!

• Single player only, like a great RPG should be.

Are you looking forward to it?

Definitely looking forward to this one! Loved the first two. Not sure when I'm going to be able to grab it, but when I can I will!

I played the first two games (so I guess I liked them). But the problem is that it's been years ago and I have no clue at all what they were about, heh.

Will buy Book III as soon as it's out.....
