About This Game

The great King Arthur has crushed his adversaries in the South but the realm of the Once and Future King still has its limit. The lands beyond the Forest of Bedegraine are wild, ruled by no one, haunted by the old gods who fought and bled here in times long past. Fallen Champions bridges the gap between King Arthur I and II with a tale of three brave souls. Sir Lionel, a brave knight from Britannia on a quest to rescue a damsel in distress. Lady Corrigan of the Sidhe, a creature of the twilight seeking the secret pathways that could lead her back to her lost home of Tir na nÓg. The third is Drest the Chosen, a shaman of the North, driven by visions of greatness and voices in the night. A knight, an enchantress, and a prophet - these three will become champions of a forgotten battle that began long, long ago.

Core Gameplay

The gameplay relies on a story-based, mission-to-mission plot. Players will choose missions and upgrade heroes. The Fallen Champions Campaign Map covers one specific region of Britannia, where players command three very different heroes. Each hero has his own storyline and each of these story lines incorporates three battles, adding up to a total of nine skirmishes plus the confrontation with the major foe in the 10th battle.

The battle maps are very diverse both in visuals and in construction: some tactical-RPG situations (with a limited number of elite units and heroes), tactical battles (with huge armies on the field) and massive battles against a general AI under very unusual circumstances.

Key features:

  • Follow three unique heroes, each with their own storyline featuring adventure quests and epic fights. The fates of these three heroes are intertwined, and their quests lead up to one massive battle under extraordinary circumstances
  • A variety of battle types fought on unique, beautifully crafted battlemaps, ranging from smaller tactical skirmishes to grand engagements against superior numbers
  • A dark and gripping fantasy tale that bridges the gap between King Arthur and King Arthur II, set in an ancient region of Britannia, beyond the well-known territories of King Arthur – The Role-playing Wargame

If you liked the original King Arthur, you'll probably like this.
If you didn't, there still may be some differences you may enjoy.

Fallen Champions is a linear expansion to the original King Arhur in which you take control of 3 different heroes and their armies and follow their stories in what is essentially a story-based prequel to the events of King Arthur 2. This game uses the exact same engine as the original game and the combat and CYOA book sections play out the exact same, albeit the combat had some improvements.

It is much less of a full game than its predecessor, because it is not a game. This is a stand-alone EXPANSION to the original King Arthur. So it is missing many features from the original game such as kingdom management, but this is intentional as the entire point of this expansion is to be a plot-filler between both King Arthur Games.

If you enjoyed the open world and kingdom management features of King Arthur the most, you may want to skip this. If you don't mind linearity and would like to see the before-events of King Arthur 2, definitely pick this up.

This expansion is not a representative of what King Arthur: The Roleplaying Wargame 1 or 2 is like. The only thing that is accurately represented would be the choose-your-own-adventure style visual novel which are pretty spot on. with the choices you make directly influencing the units you will have in the battle at end. The consequences of your actions are not always clear either. forcing you at times to carefully think about your decision lest you wish to redo the "novel" chapter to get the ideal end.

The battles themselves play more like an Age of Empires campaign level in the sense that you progress. sometimes linearly. through a battle to complete objectives such as defending for 20 minutes or gathering forces from different parts of the battlefield to attack an enemy.

The campaign map has no free-roaming and is simply select one of the three champions' storylines and begin the next mission.

All in all, only get this if, like me, you love the series and are interested in what happened between King Arthur 1 and 2 (the story doesn't have anything at all to do with the legends of King Arthur, so if buy this solely because you love the King Arthur legends then this won't serve you any purpose.)

For five bucks (USD 5) the game is to me a 7/10. nearly an hour of entertainement for each dollar!

Pretty disappointing attempt at a traditional RPG using the King Arthur: the Roleplaying Wargame as a source. The original game and all its expansions are fantastic, but this standalone has such terrible gameplay that it's essentially unplayable. Don't buy it unless you're getting it automatically as part of a King Arthur bundle--in which case, play all of the others and don't even install this one.

I highly recommend the whole King Arthur series. beautiful game engine and some nice rpg elements to the deep story driven campaigns. Not saying this game is perfect, it has some flaws, but the good out weighs the bad by a long shot.
