Nox is a game of savage combat and sneaky tactics set in a mystical land filled with discovery and deceit. Nox's lightning-fast action is fueled by a combat system that's easy to use yet gives players tremendous gameplay depth and infinite possibilities. With more than 100 unique spells and weapons, players must use their wits to create devious combinations and tricky tactics. The battle happens in the world of Nox, which Westwood's game designers have filled with intricate detail. The top down viewpoint gives players an expansive view of the world. True line of sight means never knowing what's around the next corner, creating an intense level of suspense. The dynamic world of Nox is further enhanced with the addition of an advanced physics system that delivers realistic interaction between players and the environment. Roll boulders to block doors. Move candelabras to light a darkened room. Break through walls. Use water to extinguish flames. The single player game will take gamers through the three lands of Nox, pitting you against vicious monsters and powerful wizards. Driven by an epic story, you'll progress up skill levels and learn three schools of combat: the way of the Warrior, the knowledge of Conjuror, and the disciplines of the Wizard. Nox promises an intense multiplayer experience with five multiplayer options: deathmatches (teams and free-for all melees), capture the flag, and king of the realm. Multiplay will be supported through Westwood Online, an online gaming service with more than a million members.
