The World of Greyhawk, one of the most popular Dungeons & Dragons® campaign settings of all time published by Wizards of the Coast, will make its first interactive appearance with the upcoming release of The Temple of Elemental Evil. Developed by Troika, creators of the critically acclaimed Arcanum, The Temple of Elemental Evil will feature an exciting party-based single player campaign, an engaging storyline based on the classic D&D® adventure of the same name as well as a faithful translation of the latest 3rd Edition rules.
Scheduled for release in the Fall of 2003, The Temple of Elemental Evil finds adventurers in a fight for their lives as a simple rescue mission uncovers a much more sinister plot with far-reaching implications. As the story unfolds, adventurers will travel the land of Flanaess, discover the besieged village of Hommlet, survive the filthy shire of Nulb and ultimately penetrate the ruins of the Temple of Elemental Evil, a beacon of darkness and despair in a world without hope.
The Temple of Elemental Evil will feature most of the game play aspects from the 3rd Edition D&D rule set including an entire host of feats and skills. The product's traditional turn-based combat engine will allow more effective coordination of the large party configurations possible within the game. In addition, adventurers can expect an entire host of classic D&D creatures straight from the pages of the Monster Manual, including lizard men, hill giants and a slew of demons.
