More On: New Arc Line

Are you tired of deep, immersive RPGs yet? I hope not, because Fulqrum Publishing and developer Dreamate Games have announced a new single-player tactical RPG called New Arc Line that looks quite promising. It is coming to PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5 in 2024, so fear not, you’ve got some time to recover from 2023’s RPG overload.

New Arc Line invites players to the world of New Arc, a place caught amid an existential conflict between arcane magic and a steampunk revolution. You arrive in search of a cure for a deadly disease running rampant amongst your family and quickly find yourself at the center of the conflict. Along the way you’ll choose whether to master deadly inventions or the arcane arts; steal or talk your way through conflicts, make friends and enemies, fall in love, and take part in conspiracies that influence the course of history. Explore the world of New Arc with your party of companions and engage in tactical turn-based battles as you shape the world around you.

The announcement trailer sets the stage and includes some snippets of gameplay. Check it out, as well as some key features below:

  • Become the Hero or Villain you want to be
    Create your own character as a Human, Elf, Dwarf or Giant, choose their gender, background and appearance. Keep in mind that inhabitants of this world might have their own prejudices and will treat you differently depending on your choices.
  • Gather your Party
    You won’t be alone on these shores. Meet and recruit a diverse cast of characters, learn their stories, face their demons together and help them grow, or use them for your own gain and discard them as fits your schemes. Who knows, maybe you will even find your true love!
  • Master Technology or Magic
    Evolve your character as you see fit using a detailed progression system with 6 character classes and 12 subclasses. Will you master the secrets of Magic to incinerate enemies as a Hellfire occultist, curse them with mystical Voodoo abilities, or assist your allies as a Celestial sage? Or will you rather cast aside the obsolete ways and become a Steampunk mechanic, Dieselpunk engineer or Teslapunk scientist, and turn your character into a walking steam-powered fortress?
  • Fight for your Right
    Command your party in turn-based tactical battles. Fight head-on and brute-force your way through encounters or observe and analyze each situation and come up with cunning strategies to conquer even seemingly overwhelming odds. There’s a plethora of skills, spells, crafting recipes and consumables at your disposal to turn the tide of battle in your favor.
  • Manifest Your Destiny
    Make a name for yourself, influence many lives for better or worse, and watch the consequences of your choices change the fate of this world!
