Demon Stone's intense, cinematic action is set entirely within the popular Dungeons & Dragons world of the Forgotten Realms. Familiar characters, such as the famous drow Drizzt Do'Urden and the legendary mage Khelban Blackstaff Arunsun; and terrifying monsters, including Dragons, Orcs, Slaadi, Yuan-Ti and Trolls; as well as geographical locations straight from the campaign setting will make appearances and serve as backdrops throughout the game.
The story of Demon Stone revolves around the adventuring party's unwitting intrusion into an age-old conflict between two warring demonic armies - one led by a Githyanki Princess and the other, a Slaad Lord. After inadvertently releasing both demons back upon the world after eons of imprisonment, it becomes the adventurers' quest to right their wrong and restore order to the world of Faerun.
Featuring a storyline developed by New York Times best-selling author R.A. Salvatore, Demon Stone also features the talents of actors Patrick Stewart and Michael Clarke Duncan, who lend their voices to two prominent roles.
You direct a party of three characters - a Fighter, a Sorcerer and a Rogue - controlling one party member at a time and switching between them on the fly, while the other party members are controlled by the engine's sophisticated AI. For example, when you control the Fighter, the Sorcerer and Rogue will continue to engage in combat, cast spells and assist in defeating all challengers. In many situations, the characters will be able to divide and conquer difficult objectives - while the Fighter holds back a horde of Yuan-Ti snakemen with brute force, the Sorcerer supports him with devastating ranged magic, while the Rogue sneaks above and behind them for a coup de grace. You participate seamlessly in each critical moment as the characters are cinematically switched from one perspective to another.
Demon Stone utilizes an extensive fighting system which is both easy to learn and visually stunning. Characters perform amazing attacks and feats at the simple touch of a button, but the system has sophisticated features for advanced players who want to tailor their attacks to maximize their damage in specific situations. Unique special attacks, combinations, linked combos, super attacks and even group super attacks allow you to excel against the most fearsome foes.
In addition, Demon Stone allows you to upgrade your characters with a branching path of new feats and combos as they gain experience and levels. Each character will feature a number of unique abilities, such as the Fighter's combat skills and strength, the Rogue's stealth and lock-picking abilities and the Sorcerer's plethora of new spells. For example, when upgrading the Fighter, you might have the choice of upgrading his Strength, his Melee Skill or his Hand-to-Hand skill. Within those choices, there will be other dependencies, such as the requirement to earn Power Attack before Cleave can be acquired.
