NEW YORK, NY, March 22, 2007 –
Atari, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATAR), one of the world’s most recognized brands and
leading third-party video game publisher, today announced that Silverfall®, a
dynamic 3D action role-playing game (RPG), has arrived at retailers across North
America. Developed by Monte Cristo Games, Silverfall is rated T for Teen and is
available for the Windows platform at a suggested retail price of $39.95.
Silverfall casts players into a world torn between science and nature, forcing
gamers to choose between the two in order to save the principal city from total
destruction. The player must take on quests and defeat slews of opponents during
the journey through the fascinating world of Nelwë. Two non-playing character
(NPC) companions accompany and assist the player throughout the Silverfall
adventure. Decisions made during each quest will be key as choices impact
storyline, environment and accumulation of skills.
“Engaging, immersive and imaginative, Silverfall is a unique addition to the
genre of role-playing games,” said Stephen Baer, senior product manager, Atari,
Inc. “Having been among the top five of GameSpot.com’s ‘Top 10 PC games’ list
for the last week, Silverfall is certainly a must-have for PC and RPG fans
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, 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; and can further extend their
experience with the included game editor, allowing would-be level designers to
create their own adventures to play alone or with friends.
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.
