“And like the ‘main’ King Arthur game, Fallen Companions looks incredible, with a powerful grasp of aesthetics, detailed environments and units that are a joy to see marching across the battlefield”
King Arthur: Fallen Champions bridges the gap between King Arthur I and II with a tale of three brave souls. Sir Lionel, a brave knight on a quest to rescue a damsel in distress. Lady Corrigan, a creature of the twilight seeking the secret pathways that could lead her back to her lost hom. Drest the Chosen, a shaman driven by visions of greatness and voices in the night.
A knight, an enchantress, and a prophet - these three will become champions of a forgotten battle that began long, long ago.
The gameplay relies on a story-based, mission-to-mission plot. Players will choose missions and upgrade heroes. Each hero has his own storyline and each of these storylines incorporates three battles, adding up to a total of nine skirmishes plus the confrontation with the major foe in the 10th battle.
The battlemaps are very diverse both in visuals and in construction: tactical-RPG situations (with a limited number of elite units and heroes), tactical battles (with huge armies on the field) and massive battles against a general AI under very unusual circumstances.
- Follow three unique heroes, each with their own storyline featuring adventure quests and epic fights. The fates of these three heroes are intertwined, and their quests lead up to one massive battle under extraordinary circumstances
- A variety of battle types fought on unique, beautifully crafted battlemaps, ranging from smaller tactical skirmishes to grand engagements against superior numbers
- A dark and gripping fantasy tale that bridges the gap between King Arthur and King Arthur II, set in an ancient region of Britannia, beyond the well-known territories of King Arthur – The Role-playing Wargame
