Version 3.0.1 now available

We've just released a new patch for Dreamfall Chapters. This update should download automatically the next time you launch your Steam client.

Version 3.0.1 includes an important fix for players who played Book Two with version 2.0 and have experienced discrepancies between the choices they made in the previous episode and the consequences in Book Three.

IMPORTANT: If you have experienced this bug, you will need to load your final save game from Book Two and play through to the end of that episode with v3.0.1 before starting Book Three. Unless you do this, your choices will NOT be correctly stored.

We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience. This was a very difficult bug to track down. A huge thanks to everyone who contributed to the hunt!

If you have NOT noticed any discrepancies, and/or you played Book Two using version 2.0.1 or greater, you do not have to replay anything. If you started playing Book Two on or after March 27th, your story flags should be fine. To verify that your choices have been correctly recorded, please pay close attention to the recap at the start of Book Three.

Patch notes

  • Fixed the story flag bug that prevented some choices from Book Two to carry over to Book Three. Please note that you will need to load your final save game from Book Two and play through to the end of that episode to properly record your choices.
  • Fixed two Steam achievements that did not trigger properly.
  • Fixed gameplay-specific lighting in House of All Worlds.
  • Added some character animations to Interlude II.

Book Three: Realms has arrived

The third episode of Dreamfall Chapters is now live!

Version 3.0 of Dreamfall Chapters continues the parallel adventures of Zoë Castillo in Stark and Kian Alvane in Arcadia. Following the explosive events of Book Two, Realms picks up the story two months later — and much has changed.

Featuring brand new locations and characters, new challenges, choices and consequences, and hours of exploration and adventure, Book Three is the continuation you’ve all been waiting for!

Book Three is a free update for all season pass holders. Only the English language versions is currently available. German and French localised versions are coming soon.

Patch notes

  • Version 3.0 includes the third of five episodes of Dreamfall Chapters! Hours of new gameplay, tons of new characters and locations — enjoy!
  • Please note that you need to have completed Book One and Two in order to start Book Three.
  • Book Three is currently only available in English. German version with full voice-overs, and French subtitled version will arrive shortly.

General changes

  • There’s now a recap at the beginning of the episode, outlining some of the important choices you’ve made in the story. This recap will only play the first time you start Book Three, and only if you choose the ‘Start Book Three’ option from the front menu.

Known issues

  • Some players have received incorrect story flags (the choices made in the story) from the end of Book Two. We are working on a fix, which should arrive Friday June 26th. This bug only affects those who played through Book Two with version 2.0. Version 2.0.1 and later will not have this problem.
  • This is not a bug, but: we're getting reports that some players are unable to pick up a specific drawing in the Interlude. This is intentional, although the area in question is supposed to be darker than it appears on some screens (this will be fixed in v3.0.1). The solution to the puzzle is close at hand…
  • The settings menu is inaccessible from Interlude I. This will be fixed in the next patch.
  • There are volume issues with some of the voice-overs. We are working to correct this for version 3.0.1.
  • The OS-X Mac version is missing light-shafts. This version may also display flickering scenery in some locations. We are working on a fix.

Dreamfall Chapters is the episodic follow-up to award-winning adventures The Longest Journey and Dreamfall: The Longest Journey: a story-driven adventure about choices and consequences, dreams and reality, magic and science, chaos and order, and the broken heroes whose actions will shape the course of history in all worlds.

genre : point and click adventure game in 3rd person

+ high production values, beautiful art, great character models, especially Zoe is very well designed, stunning environments and worlds
+ excellent voice acting, one of my favorite soundtracks, music is both epic and emotional
+ the story is one of the best you can find in gaming, heart breaking and emotional, other times dark and mysterious - the writing and dialogues are better than most movies you have ever watched - you continue the story of the previous games in the series, following the journey of the 2 heroes in parallel worlds, of science and magic, reality and dreams, order and chaos
+ gameplay wise it's a point and click adventure game in 3rd person - there are inventory based puzzles, puzzles are scarce but well thought , but the most important part of gameplay is observation and dialogues, where the choices have consequences, the path changes according to them and the balance is shifted - combining items in inventory or choosing the appropriate action when interacting are also basic gameplay functions
+ pretty long for episodic game, the 2nd book i'm playing right now seems to be twice the size of the 1st one - replayability is also good since most people will replay it to see the alternate results of their actions

- it would be a 10/10 game for me if it wasn't for the optimization issues and frame drops on large open areas, it has been fixed a bit since the release but it still needs some work
- some animations could be better, but for an adventure game they are way above average

the whole series of longest journey/dreamfall is very special to me, it just feels that playing these games and following the story is something more than just gaming - makes you feel things and maybe reconsider some things in your own life - ofcourse the game is recommended to everyone , although it would be wise to play at least the longest journey first to understand the worlds since despite the fact that there is a story recap it's not enough.

I give the game an 8 on a scale of 1 to 10

About the heroes
When i first started to play Dreamfall Chapters and started to get immersed bit in the story, it felt like it was one of the best games i had play in a long time. I loved the characters Zoë Maya Castillo and Kian Alvane and had a lot of sympathy for both, because of Zoë's captivating story and her way of handling things. Even though she lost her memory and is searching for meaning in her life, her search still doesn't stop her to be there for others. I also respect Kian, an Azadi who gets blamed for the actions of his people. Even when someone threatened to kill him, he still decided to help them.

The good bits:

A few things i didn't like so much from the game:

  • ~The characters aren't walking so fast so it takes a while to get somewhere.
    (But at least it keeps you busy)
  • ~The mouths of the characters don't always move when they talk.
    (Didn't bother me much, but it could be a point to improve)
  • ~Both Kian and Zoë have a map each, Zoë's map is easier to use.
  • ~It is a terribly disappointing that after the cliff hanger at the end of book 2 the game is finished, because there aren't more parts yet.
    This may also have done away with the whole idea that choices you make during the game might influence the course of the later story. :( But we will see. :)

All in all:

  • I loved it so long it took to play.
  • I enjoyed almost every part of it :D
  • And I hope for future parts of the book to come soon!

I give the game an 8 on a scale of 1 to 10

As last i want to make a special thanks to Gao Li for helping me with the formatting and grammar of this review :D

Dreamfall Chapters is a new episodic instalment on the TLJ series, and a direct sequel to Dreamfall: The Longest Journey.
The game is wonderfully written - great story, great characters, excellent dialogue and voice acting - and beautifully designed. With two books out, Dreamfall Chapters is quickly earning its place as one of the most interesting games of 2015.
Highly recommended.

Simply an amazing story based adventure game where you make huge choices that result in consequence and large impact. I've already blasted through book one, two and three and happily await book four and five.


Update after book three: ♥♥♥♥ gets real now son

I already played The Longest Journey and Dreamfall before this game.
I'm usually a bit sceptical when great series get continued after such a long time.
But this game definitely exceeds all my expectations so far.
The story and the characters are so deep, interesting and complex. It's just fantastic!
The game also has a rather long playtime. I already have 26 h on record after finishing book 3!

If you already played another game from this series you will love this one too.
If you are new to the series, but like games with a rich story, you will love this game.
