About This Game

Face the last challenge - determine destiny!

A new threat casts its shadow over the Southern Isles. A mysterious demon, consumed by hatred, terrifies the population and pools his force against the coastal city of Setarrif. The dramatic situation exacerbates after a volcanic eruption in the mountains nearby. Thereupon the nameless hero joins forces with his strongest allies and courageously faces the new menace.

Even after king Rhobar III was freed from the demons control, the struggle apparently is not over. The king already ordered his armies to conquer Setarrif, but so far no word from his troops, or the frantic population for that matter, has gotten through.

Experience an all new adventure amidst demonic powers, political intrigue and inscrutable incidents – what’s really going on in Setarrif?

Features:

  • Experience a new, compelling part of the chronicles of Argaan
  • Play parts of the story from your famous allies’ perspective
  • All new enemies as well as new armors and weapons to further expand and hone your combat skills
  • Meet new, lively characters when exploring the (yet) unknown regions & dungeons
  • Stand-alone expansion
  • Playing time: 4 – 8 hours
  • Import your character from the main game (with a character that killed the endboss of ArcaniA main game)
  • New locations and settings (lava/beach/dungeon)

Contra: No decisions/linear story, no collecting of better items (you get most of the OP items at the beginning), took me less than 4 hours to complete the game which mostly consists of slashing enemies of the same types over and over again and there even is an exploit to some of the boss fights (just keep slashing them and they can never slash back because they are stunned)

Pro: If you are a fan of the Arcania universe and you want to "complete" the story then I recommend buying this game

Okay, I have finally resolved all the issues I had about this addon and I can now fairly review it.

This is a typical endgame DLC with a new piece of terrain to explore, better equipment and stronger enemies. Something else to do after you've finished the main game and became a hero. It suddenly turns out that your job is not done yet and you should become yet more heroic to overcome a yet greater threat.

That being said, there hardly is anything to add to the description. Anyway, given that you take your time there, it provides a total of 5 or 6 hours of gameplay. I've seen whole titles delivering the same or even less, so this addon is worth getting if you want to visit the universe of Arcania once more.

while i for one enjoyed this standalone expansion i agree with everyone else, the game was way too short the store page says Playing time: 4 – 8 hours (what a joke) but its really only around 2 1/2hours. they should of added this into arcania as a update or dlc instead of trying to milk full profit like its a full game. I would avoid this game unless its at least 75% off

You have almost nothing to explore. It´s nice that you can import your hero of the main Game, ArcaniA but that´s not enough to say it´s good. It litteraly takes around 5 a half hours to play through this Standalone Game. It´s even worse than the Add on for Gothic 3 (forsaken Gods edition). It´s far to short. I mean if you compare that with the main game, ArcaniA (I have 21+ hrs) it´s a joke. For the price of 15€ it´s way to expensive for its quality. Just have in mind the main Game ArcaniA costs 20€... And even the following comparison is the only thing you need to know.

ArcaniA: FoS (5,5 hrs) -> 15€
ArcaniA (21+ hrs) -> 20€

The mapsize is a joke. I try to compare it with the main Game: The whole world of ArcaniA: FoS is as big as Toshoo combined with Feshyr or even smaller.
This game is not with the 15€

a very cool addition to the main storyline. i like that they went as far as to make it a standalone addition rather then a dlc. you can even use the autosave files from the main arcania game to start out with the character you spent 20+ hours building up or start from scratch. exploring in this addition was much easier the pathways more defined but still plenty of hidden chests, items, and easter eggs! to those who already have the main game i highly recommend this 5 hour extra storyline. to those who dont id recommend playing the main game first.

Do not even consider buying this abomination if it's not included in any bundle.
This is a joke,not a standalone expansion.This game is so short that it should be released as an update to the original ArcaniA. In some RPGs single main quests take as long as this whole game does...it looks like they cut out a quest from the original game before its release and sold it as a standalone title.

Probably an inside joke by the developer turned retail product, this little missionpack brings the less than epic conclusion to the cliffhanger of the original ArcaniA. It is like somebody scraped together a bunch of unfinished questlines and maps from the maingame, mashed them together and called it a day. It took me about 2 hours finishing this using the endgame save from the maingame and it is pretty much more of the same, but somehow worse - because the writing feels like they just did not care anymore, with many misguided attempts at comic-relief killing all sense of atmosphere.

Considering it is stand-alone, it might work as a sort of quick fix if you crave some mindless hacking and slaying but want to be done with it all before dinner. It carries all the issues of the maingame (boring dungeons, crappy combat-system, lots of crappy loot) and doesn't bring the closure to the ArcaniA-chapter of the Gothic-Saga that I had hoped for. Pretty much a waste of time and money unless you played all the better alternatives.

I enjoyed this more than Arcania but it's far too short. It says between 4-8 hours but I completed it in 2 1/2 hours. The RRP for this game is 13.99! (UK). Do not buy this unless it's on sale and I'm talking a 90% off sale, not worth more than a couple of pounds for what you get.

I could tell this is as good as Arcania. Pretty nice game. But I can not recommend this because it is too short. Stand-alone expansion for about 5 hours of gameplay. This should be included into Arcania or exist as DLC.

This game will let you import your character form Arcania with full inventory and stats. Very good solution.

Purchase of this game make sense only as a part of pack or on a sale.

Unless you really loved Arcania: Gothic 4 then don't bother with this stand alone continuation of that story. And if you do want to continue Arcania's story, get this on sale.

It took me about 5 hours to meander through the whole thing. You can take your character from Arcania along with all his loot and stats. My character progressed a few more levels but there was not enough content to really make much of a difference. In contrast to Arcania's wide open areas, the Fall of Satarrif features mainly a trench/corridor environment for most of it's story. Otherwise it's pretty much the same game as the original, even down to the end game fight.

The story itself is fairly simplistic but I didn't think it was noticeably worse than the original game.

Picks up at the end of Arcania, so if you have your save file you can carry it all across. It is a very painless transition and unlike games, such as Mass Effect, every item in your inventory are carried over.

However, this is more likely because of the Expansion-like feel of this game. Overall it is an anti climax to the prior game. There are fewer encounters, those that exist get pretty tired. The Boss battle at the end is almost identical to the boss in ArcaniA.

If you have to get the game to complete the saga, I guess do it. However, there are only a few new enemies, no new powers and you will feel that the expansion really only rounds out the story.

If you were picking this up as a standalone, I don't think you will get the relationships between the characters and thus the story will just feel like a shallow chase to kill a demon that is cursing a kingdom. The greater conflict is lost and the chance to make something epic of that showdown is lost even without the prior story knowledge.
