Valhalla Knights 3 drops players into a world filled with criminals, violence and distrust as they search for a long-lost legendary treasure in the ultimate hostile environment – the medieval prison Carceron, where the prisoners have built their own cruel society amongst the crumbling walls and wild grounds. Players first create a fully customizable main character and allied party members, choosing from one of seven races, including Human, Dwarf, Elf, Halfling, Machine, Beast and Nightmare, and from one of 20 job classes (7 basic job classes, 8 unlockable, and 5 available through downloadable content). These custom player characters can take on various quests, exploring the prison’s filthy slums, lower dungeons, black markets, outer wildlands – and the infamous “Light District,” where the castle’s female shopkeepers and entertainers dwell.
As players journey through the game’s world, they will constantly engage in action-heavy real-time battle, utilizing a diverse party of up to seven characters. Players control any one party member at a time, and can choose to either issue commands to their allies or switch characters on the fly and take command themselves. Defeating enemies and completing quests will grant the party loot, which characters can use to bolster their abilities and combat effectiveness. With 200-plus quests and over 500 in-game items, weapons, armor and special goods, Valhalla Knights 3 promises players over 40 hours of gameplay. For those who want to go beyond the single-player campaign, XSEED Games has added online multiplayer on top of the game’s original ad-hoc multiplayer mode for its North American release, so North American fans can play against each other online no matter how far apart they are.
