Lionheart Gone Gold!

Here’s the full press release from Interplay’s website:

Fast Paced medieval RPG coming for PC this August

LOS ANGELES, CA (July 16, 2003) – Vivendi Universal Games and Interplay Entertainment Corp (OTCBB:IPLY) announced today Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader has gone gold. This original PC role-playing game from award-winning Black Isle Studios, and developed by Reflexive Entertainment, combines an intriguing story of alternate medieval history and fast paced real-time combat. It also features the SPECIAL system for character advancement previously found in the Fallout series of PC games. Hordes of monsters, hundreds of weapons and items and over 60 spells are found in the game to challenge your combat and spell-casting abilities. Get ready to enter a hauntingly familiar yet fantastically foreign world to our own.

It is 1588 A.D. Because of one fateful event during the Third Crusade, the history of this Earth diverged. This event, the Disjunction, ripped open a long-sealed breach to other worlds. Magic energy and powerful spirits flowed into the world, changing the lands and the people forever. To some who could comprehend the nature of these new forces, the introduction of magic has brought great power. To the common folk, magic is feared as the handiwork of evil. In this new, yet strangely familiar setting, the player must decide how to best develop their character’s skills and abilities to triumph over obstacles to discover the meaning of their true fate.

Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader will be available in August 2003 on PC for a suggested retail price of $49.99 with an ESRB “Teen” rating. For more information, log on to
