Elemental: Fallen Enchantress expansion, “Fallen Heroes”, out on May 22
Less than a year after the release of Elemental: Fallen Enchantress, its first expansion has been conjured for a May 22 release on Steam.
Owners of Elemental: Fallen Enchantress can purchase the Fallen Enchantress: Fallen Heroes expansion for $19.99 as a direct upgrade.
For those who have not bought the original strategy rpg title, Stardock said Fallen Heroes can be bought for $39.99 as a standalone title. Fallen Heroes is designed as a turn-based PC fantasy strategy game with improvements rolled out based on fan feedback.
Players can look forward to new monsters, new champions, larger maps, new tactical battle maps and a drastically altered role for heroes. Still veering away from the trend of creating PC and mmorpg games that require high-end systems to run, Stardock has designed Fallen Heroes with relatively low-end PC users in mind. This can be seen in the minimum system requirements listed below:
• OS: Windows 8 / 7 SP1 / Vista SP2 / XP SP3
• Processor: 2.4 GHz Processor
• Memory: 1 GB RAM
• Graphics: 256 MB DirectX 9.0c Compliant Video Card w/Pixel Shader 2.0 (Radeon x1600 / GeForce 6800)
• DirectX®: 9.0c
• Hard Drive: 5 GB HD space
• Sound: DirectX 9.0c Compatible Sound Card
• Additional: To activate this game you must create a Stardock account while launching the game
The new title will also have no digital rights management or DRM installed like all previous Stardock games.
Fallen Heroes will be released on Steam digital distribution platform, with pre-orders ongoing. As a surprise bonus, fans who bought Stardock’s 2010 game Elemental: War of Magic will before October 31, 2010 will receive Fallen Heroes for free as promised before.
