Story and Setting
The world of Eschalon is a classic fantasy setting, filled with magic, monsters, and ancient ruins. In Book III, players will once again take on the role of the “Secret of Fathamurk,” the mysterious protagonist who wields the powerful magic of the Divine Throne. The story picks up right where the previous game left off, with the Secret fleeing from the Barbarian horde that has been unleashed by the villainous Thaermore.
Throughout their journey, players will explore a vast and detailed world, filled with secrets, side quests, and hidden items. Each location is beautifully rendered, with stunning landscapes and intricate details that bring the world to life. And as players progress through the story, they will uncover the truth behind the Divine Throne and the mystery of their own identity.
The gameplay in Eschalon: Book III remains faithful to its roots, offering a traditional turn-based combat system and a deep character customization system. Players can choose from three different character classes: the fighter, rogue, and mage, each with their own unique set of skills and abilities.
Combat is a strategic affair, with players needing to carefully plan their moves and utilize their character’s skills and equipment to overcome the challenges of the game. And with a wide variety of enemies, from goblins to dragons, players will need to constantly adapt their tactics to succeed.
In addition to combat, players can also engage in a variety of non-linear quests and exploration, giving them the freedom to shape their own adventure. And for those looking for an even greater challenge, the game offers a hardcore mode, where death is permanent and mistakes cannot be undone.
Improved Graphics and Sound
One of the most noticeable changes in Eschalon: Book III is the significant improvement in graphics and sound. The game has been updated with high-resolution graphics and improved sound effects, making the world even more immersive and detailed than before.
The game also features an updated user interface, making it easier for players to manage their inventory, skills, and quests. And with the addition of an optional auto-mapping system, players can focus on exploring the world and unraveling its secrets, without getting lost in its vastness.
The End of an Era
As the final chapter in the Eschalon series, Book III promises to be a fitting end to the epic saga. With its engaging story, challenging gameplay, and improved graphics and sound, it is a must-play for fans of classic RPGs. And for those new to the series, it offers the perfect opportunity to experience the entire journey from beginning to end.
“Eschalon: Book III is the culmination of ten years of development and the support of our loyal fans. We are excited for players to experience the epic conclusion to the series and see the true fate of the Divine Throne.” – Thomas Riegsecker, Lead Developer
