Namco Hometek Inc. today announced that from Mage Knight Apocalypse, the action role-playing game for the PC based on the best-selling collectible miniature game from WizKids Games, is now shipping to retail outlets across North America and will hit the store shelves on September 26th. The action of the game follows the events of an upcoming "Mage Knight" storyline and puts player in the role of one of 5 characters to face The Apocalypse Dragon and defeat the forces of Chaos in the "Mage Knight" universe. Players can quest alone or with friends in five-player cooperative and competitive play modes, working together or going head-to-head. The game offers five distinct character classes and hundreds of weapons, armor and items. Like Dungeon Siege, character development depends on what type of playing style the player enjoys. Swinging a heavy sword will make you stronger, casting spells will make your magic more powerful, and shooting bows will improve dexterity. The E3 2006 trailer is locally mirrored here.
