Silverfall demo now available

Free PC sample of Monte Cristo's action/role-playing game ready for download; four playable races, two quests included.

45 Comments

The public can finally step into the world of Silverfall, the PC action/role-playing game from Parisian developer Monte Cristo. Atari has released a free demo for the game, which is now available for download from GameSpot.

In a different take on the tried-and-true fantasy setting, Silverfall is set in a world in which technology and nature are at odds. Through industrial revolutions, several governments have gained power and built up massive armies. In response to this imbalance of power, terrorists have embraced the "savage way," siding with those who are attuned to nature.

In the Silverfall demo, gamers will be able to go through the first few levels of the game as one of the four playable races. As characters progress to a maximum of level 15, they will choose a side--science or nature--to support.

Silverfall has not yet been rated by the ESRB and will be released on March 13. For more information, read GameSpot's previous coverage.

After playing it for a few hours, it doesn't play too bad and it doesn't look too bad either. Other people seem to think it's quite good as it's gone gold!

I'm amazed at how many of you say this demo is corrupted. I dl'ed, installed and played already. It works fine for me. Maybe your connection is bad?

I don't really dig role playing games, i'll probally pass on this one. I haven't even heard much about hype about the game. Maybe it will be one of those titles that sneak up on you, but until i hear otherwise i'm thinking i'm going to pass.

I saw many examples of the monster designs for this game in a new article at IGN, and they look so brilliantly designed & unique!

Razor, you have to change the options outside of the game with their setup utility.

I must be missing something with this game. I downloaded it and started playing a little bit, but I can't even adjust the resolution of game? Plus the controls are really weird, but I'm not exactly a huge RPG fan, so this would probably be more familiar to others.

Its good if you have like a good computer otherwise its doesn't look nice. Very very simlar to diablo. I like the part where you can play as races and not as classes. Goblins FTW!

From what i heard, this game got hardly any coverage last E3 as it was "in a dark corner", so its good to see that it made it and is going to be released. now to see what it plays like.

I am a bit disappointed at the new video. It looks pretty good in graphic but what new gameplay does it offer? Ok, the new cyborg arm and stuff is cool and transforming into a werewolf also. But it is no different than having wings or being able to transform. Other rpg before this have done it before. Arcanum was a mix between magic and technology. Also there was transforming into different creatures. I recall Origin made an rpg many years ago that allows you to transform. That brings me back to my original question - What does silverfall offer that other rpg before it, did not? Anyway it is still too early to tell right now. I haven't try the demo yet. If you have, plz post your opinion of it. Thx.

Seems like GS is really pushing this game. I checked the developers back catalog. Not a good pedigree :/
