Description

Enclave is a third-person action game, pitting you as one of twelve different characters in a medieval era.

During a great war, the land of Celenheim was separated into two sides; the light side and the dark side. On the side of the Light, the Enclave was protected from all sides by a wide rift, a bottomless abyss. On the Dark side, twisted forms struggled for survival, while slowly growing more powerful, preparing to invade the Light side once again.

As a player of either side, it is up to you to perform various tasks, leading ultimately to one objective; protect the Enclave (Light) or invade the land (Dark).

To accomplish your tasks, you will utilize various weapons, such as swords, bows, staffs and spears. To aid you, you have shields readily available, as well as a select few potions to help. Armor is abundant, and comes in many shapes and sizes.

As a member of the Light side, you can choose to play as a Knight, a Huntress, a Wizard, a Druid, an Engineer or a Halfling. At the opposite end of the spectrum, you can be a Berserker, an Assassin, a Sorceress, a Lich, a Bombardier, or a Goblin.

Trivia

Development

Originally, Enclave was designed for the PC. Microsoft needed games for its Xbox, Starbreeze Studios coded a Xbox-Version (with a lot of slowdowns) and delayed the PC version.

Extras

Some PC versions came with an additional promotion offer, a mail-in for a free VHS tape of the film Army of Darkness. It lasted from March 2003 until November 2003.

German version

In the German version almost all blood was removed.

Goblins

The Goblins in the game speak Swedish.

Windows version

The European version was delayed for six months because publisher Swing! Entertainment Media AG filed for bankruptcy and Starbreeze revoked the publishing rights.
