Stardock announced today that the long-awaited fantasy strategy PC game, Elemental: Fallen Enchantress, is now available. Fallen Enchantress offers players an immersive new world to build or destroy as they try to conquer the land and its inhabitants. Enter the world of Elemental and create a sovereign with unique talents and abilities along with a faction to align yourself with in an effort to bring the world under your control.

The land is not simply waiting to be claimed, it must be conquered. The lands of Elemental are teeming with monsters, bandits and ancient creatures who will not willingly give up their hold on the world. In addition, other factions are pursuing the same agenda at the same time raising the stakes.

Highlights include:

  • A new game every time. Players can choose the world conditions and have a world randomly generated with randomized opponents, monsters and quests.
  • Unique factions to play with or against. Each faction has its own special units, abilities and powers that require different strategies to achieve victory – or to resist against.
  • Massive scale. Players can zoom in and see individuals working in their cities or zoom out to see the known world presented in a real-time cloth map in one smooth transition.
  • Computer players that get better the more you play. The multi-core AI makes use of the character, factions and units players create in previous games.
  • Custom Scenarios. In addition to the epic sandbox game, Fallen Enchantress also supports custom scenarios. The game includes the scenario “The Fallen Enchantress” to introduce players to the backstory.
  • A strategy game in an RPG world. Fallen Enchantress introduces elements normally found in role playing games such as quests, loot drops, moral dilemmas, unit customization and much more.
  • Unique Locations. The world generator will randomly place one of several unique areas that contain special resources to use. These “Wild Lands” have their own powerful guardians who must first be defeated before the treasures within can be exploited.
  • Multiple paths to victory. Players can win through diplomacy, questing, sorcery, or good old fashioned military conquest.
  • An interactive tutorial. To introduce new players to the world of “4X” strategy games, Fallen Enchantress includes an in-depth tutorial to ease players into the Elemental world.
  • Advanced modding tools. The game ships with a rich array of modding tools including a map editor, tile editor and particle editor to provide players with the means to create new races, quests, spells and scenarios which can be easily shared with other players.
  • All-star development team. Fallen Enchantress reunites Stardock’s Galactic Civilizations team and is designed by Derek Paxton, the author of the acclaimed Civilization IV mod “Fall From Heaven”. The Fallen Enchantress scenario was created by the Civilization V designer, Jon Shafer, and the lore, backstories, and dialog were written by fantasy author Dave Stern.

Fallen Enchantress is $39.99 new and free for those who purchased War of Magic in 2010.

It is available direct from its home page (www.fallenenchantress.com) as well as on Steam, GameStop, GamersGate and elsewhere.

Well, I'm not really good at this, but I give it a try, because it is a special occasion:

Congratulations on the release, Stardock-Team, and a big Thank you! for all your hard work and dedication over the last couple years! I really hope that E:FE will have the success it deserves!

Speaking of "deserving", I originally planned to give you a cake as a present for the occasion. However, I ultimately decided against it, because my cakes are just of average quality (it also would have only lead to countless Portal-jokes). Instead, I will gift you something I'm really good at: Pizza!

I hope you don't mind garlic.

You might want to set the main website to reload cache for a day or two. But whatever.

Congratulations Stardock!

Congratulations on the release. I remember when first encountering Kael's Civilization IV mod and thinking it was quite a piece of work. It inspired my own Civ IV modding back then. I wish this game all the best of luck and I look forward to what Kael and the team will do in the future as well. I've really enjoyed and had some good times with the beta.

Congratulations! You have all done a cracking job and should be very proud. I think i will  buy the game again on Steam coz i feel that i have already been repaid for WoM by being in the Beta and playing a great game for the last couple of months.

Cheers Dan

As of now, FE is the 9th best selling game of today on Steam and 2nd on Impulse. That's good.

EDIT: Update.

EXCELLENT!  Install went smoothly, game started up, I "walked" through the tutorial.  All is well.  Thank you for providing this to those of us who bought the original.  I will certainly consider Stardock games in the future!

Go look for yourself on http://store.steampowered.com and click the Top Sellers tab. It's still very good, given the amount of traffic Steam has.

EDIT: I remember when GalCiv II was the 3rd most sold game on Steam for a couple of days, during last summer's sale. Stardock makes great games...

It is advertised on Steam in the top stop, rotating with a dozen or so other games. In terms of sales its in 9th place.

No. You get it in your Stardock account. You can't transfer products from your Stardock account to Steam. They said this might be possible for future games, but not FE. You can use Stardock Central for automatic updates.

That doesn't necessarily mean top sellers of today, does it?

I think it does. It gets updated hourly or so.

No one talking about how the game is being marketed as Fallen Enchantress with the subtle Elemental logo and slick new font but then installing as Elemental: Fallen Enchantress? Sneaky sneaky... and getting both sides of that FE/E:FE poll awhile back.

Hey there, I have a question. Yesterday there was a premiere of one game on Steam, yet I don't see any advertisements, no information in the news section, etc. Shame, I believe your product would benefit a lot from those.
