Zeppelins and dragons and gadgets, oh my! New single-player RPG New Arc Line announced
PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC – September 04, 2023 - Fulqrum Publishing and Dreamate Games have today announced their new single-player, story-rich RPG, New Arc Line, coming to PC (Steam and other digital stores), Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5. Set during the gilded age of magic and technology, New Arc Line welcomes players to a troubled world: The New World looms on the horizon, the shining city of progress, and the last beacon of hope in your search for a cure to your family's fatal disease. But you will soon discover that the city's beauty runs only skin-deep; tensions growing between different factions in the world of arcane magic and steampunk gadgets, the rich exploiting the poor, the humanoid hunting the monstrous, and in the middle of it all you, a stranger in a strange land, unaware of the role you have to play in shaping the future of this world... Which side will you choose? What will you become?
Take a stand in the existential conflict between Arcane Magic and the Steampunk Revolution, in New Arc Line! Invent deadly gadgets or master the arcane arts, steal or smooth-talk your way to the top, make foes and allies, fall in love, get involved in a massive conspiracy and influence the course of history.
Explore the Steampunk revolution in the announcement trailer:
Shape your story in the metropolis of New Arc, ‘The Shining City of Progress’, where you arrive by steerage of a steamship, full of wonder and hope - but things are never quite as bright as they appear. Dark smoke from the factories chokes the skies, segregation, inequality, and corruption run rampant. In order to survive and save your loved ones, you will have to rise from the very bottom, make tough decisions, and get your hands dirty with the help of your diverse party of companions.
Featuring turn-based tactical battles, a complex character creator and a deep, believable world full of tough choices, New Arc Line promises players an unforgettable narrative adventure.
⦁ Become the Hero or Villain you want to be
Create your own character as a Human, Elf, Dwarf or Giant, choose their gender, background and appearance. Keep in mind that inhabitants of this world might have their own prejudices and will treat you differently depending on your choices.
⦁ Gather your Party
You won’t be alone on these shores. Meet and recruit a diverse cast of characters, learn their stories, face their demons together and help them grow, or use them for your own gain and discard them as fits your schemes. Who knows, maybe you will even find your true love!
⦁ Master Technology or Magic
Evolve your character as you see fit using a detailed progression system with 6 character classes and 12 subclasses. Will you master the secrets of Magic to incinerate enemies as a Hellfire occultist, curse them with mystical Voodoo abilities, or assist your allies as a Celestial sage? Or will you rather cast aside the obsolete ways and become a Steampunk mechanic, Dieselpunk engineer or Teslapunk scientist, and turn your character into a walking steam-powered fortress?
⦁ Fight for your Right
Command your party in turn-based tactical battles. Fight head-on and brute-force your way through encounters or observe and analyze each situation and come up with cunning strategies to conquer even seemingly overwhelming odds. There’s a plethora of skills, spells, crafting recipes and consumables at your disposal to turn the tide of battle in your favor.
⦁ Manifest Your Destiny
Make a name for yourself, influence many lives for better or worse, and watch the consequences of your choices change the fate of this world!
