Fallen Enchantress Preorders Get Beta Access

Stardock announces that preorders are being accepted for Fallen Enchantress, an advance commitment that will earn customers immediate access to the latest beta versions of the upcoming fantasy-themed strategy game. Here's word on the deal and the game:

Stardock announced today that Fallen Enchantress is now available on Steam, GameStop PC Downloads and GamersGate. Customers will gain immediate access to download the latest beta version.

Fallen Enchantress offers PC gamers a chance to experience a unique fantasy world for players to build or destroy as they conquer the land. Players create a sovereign with unique talents and abilities along with a faction to align themselves with in an effort to bring the world under their control. However, the land is not simply waiting to be claimed, it must be conquered. The lands of Elemental are teeming with monsters, bandits and other beings of dread who will not willingly give up their hold on the world. Other factions are pursuing the same agenda at the same time, raising the stakes and deciding the ultimate outcome: who wins and who dies.

Key features:

  • Massive scale. Players can zoom in and see the citizens working in their cities or zoom out to see the revealed world presented in a real-time cloth map with one smooth transition.
  • Unique factions. Choose from one of eight unique factions to play as or create their own by customizing traits and exclusive capabilities.
  • Unit Design. Learning technologies unveils new and unique types of units. Players also can design their own units with a unique look, equipment, skills, weapons and more.
  • Quests. Players are presented with tasks along the way. These quests present significant risk, but allow the player’s champions access to greater experience, magical items, equipment and new allies.
  • Never the same game twice. The game supports randomly generated worlds. Players will never see the same map twice.
  • Epic areas. Away from the starting locations, are the Wild Lands of Elemental. You’ll find these areas populated by unique and dangerous monsters, their defeat opens up rich lands for players to conquer and exploit.
  • Multiple paths to victory. Win through diplomacy, questing, sorcery, or establish dominance with military conquest.

Designed by Derek Paxton, the creator of the acclaimed Civilization mod “Fall from Heaven”, Fallen Enchantress is a rich and deep strategy game that is designed to provide many hours of replayability and enjoyment.

The final version of Fallen Enchantress is expected to be released this Fall.

I can't believe anybody would preorder this after the Elemental fiasco. What are the odds that this game will even work out of the box?

Elemental also had the ugliest choice of graphics I've seen in a modern game. I'd rather play something from the early 90s.

I think we are all pretty much too smart to be taken in by yet another version of Elemental with a beta and more testing on a game that should have been finished over a year ago.

yet here they are wanting MORE money. Hillarious

Actually if you bought the first one you are not paying for this one. Also despite some long standing bugs it is a lot better.

It's been a while since I tried it, but when I did play it a few months ago it was pretty fun. It is very much like Elemental, but a lot of bugs were fixed. It didn't crash every 5 minutes. I will eventually buy it during a Steam sale. Too many games right now though.

the gameplay videos are interesting but yea, wait for lots of reviews. They got rid of the separate battle map which is unfortunate.

Their official forums members are generally positive about this release. They are aware of their mistakes with the first game and are attempting to fix the problems. I am looking forward to trying it. Still, it is never unwise to wait for reviews.

With all due respect, the game series has gotten better. Not perfect, but playable and quite fun to boot.

Last fantasy strategy game from them was a disaster. I can definitely say I will NOT be preordering this game. I will wait for reviews.

there's a serial key on the stardock site. I don't use steam, so I can't be bothered checking if it works there. same format as the sins numbers, 5x6.

So... I know I have access to the beta direct from Stardock already, but does anyone know if there's a key somewhere I can put into Steam?
