Pre-Order Dishonored and Get Arx Fatalis Free During QuakeCon 2012
Yesterday, Bethesda announced that Steam pre-orders for the PC version of Dishonored were open, and as a QuakeCon 2012 bonus, pre-ordering until August 5th will score customers a free copy of the Arkane Studios classic, Arx Fatalis.
Receiving a 77 on Metacritic — which was corroborated by the user ratings — Arx Fatalis is a first-person RPG released in 2002 which was originally intended to be Ultima Underworld III. Set on a world whose sun has failed, the action in Arx takes place in subterranean caverns, where inhabitants from all races such as Trolls, Goblins, Dwarves, and Humans have made their homes.
The game features an intuitive spellcasting system; by using the mouse and the Ctrl key, runes are drawn in mid-air with mouse gestures in order to successfully cast a spell.
