Arx Fatalis Element of the Week 8

Garrett, 2001-09-27

Arx Fatalis is an RPG developed by Arkane Studios. It offers a number of interactions with objects and NPCs, realistic action fights, a unique real time spell casting system, character creation, dialogues, puzzles, exploration in an underground atmospheric world with various Cities inhabited by several races, galleries, dungeons and mines all intertwined by an unexpected epic plot.

We will bring you this Arx Fatalis Element of the week in collaboration with publisher Fishtank. This time we feature the Freeze Spell.

The Freeze Spell
The Freeze spell is effectively used in combat situations. You can cast this spell during a fight and the enemy will be temporarily locked in a block of ice. Once your opponent is frozen and therefore unable to move, you have enough time to cast an strong offensive spell to finish him off. If the enemy is too strong, this spell gives you also the time to flee from combat since the opponent can't follow you immediately. When the effect of the spell wears off, you're already hiding at a safe place. Of course this isn't very heroic but it's a better option than lying dead on the ground, serving as food for the rats.

Today's Screenshots feature the spell as it freezes two goblins; you might want to download the screens and watch them quickly in a row to get a more movielike experience:
