Back of Box (German):

    Besiege Hecunah,
    die Königin der Untoten,
    und regiere das Internet-Schlachtfeld.



    Begib Dich mit Nox, dem rasanten Action-Spiel, in ein Land voll aufregender Abenteuer.

    Drei Spielmodi



    Wähle den Pfad des Kriegers und beweise Kraft und Schnelligkeit. Erlerne die Kunst der Magie und lasse Deine Feinde vor Ehrfurcht erzittern.
    Oder beschreite den Weg des Beschwörers und lasse die wilden Kreaturen Deinem Willen gehorchen.

    Fallen



    In Nox kannst Du sowohl im Einzelspieler- als auch im Multiplayer-Modus Deine eigenen Fallen und Rätsel erstellen. Mit List und Tücke kannst Su es in dieser Welt weit bringen. Stelle Dir vor, Du stecktest einen Gegner in einem Raum voller Giftspinnen oder in ein Lavabecken.

    Sprüche, Waffen und Fähigkeiten



    In Nox gibt es über 50 verschiedene Sprüche, Waffen und besondere Fähigkeiten. Rufe einen blutrünstigen Wolf heran und hetze ihn einem raffinierten Gegner auf die Fersen, beschwöre die Naturgewalten und zerstöre eine Höhle voller Dämonen oder vernichte Deine Gegner mit dem Stab der Vergessenheit.

    Neue "True Vision"-Perspektive



    Eine innovative Kameraführung sorgt für ganz besondere Spannung.

    Multiplayer



    Spiele auf dem Internet-Schlachtfeld von Westwood Online, schließe Dich mit Freunden zusammen, um die gegnerische Flagge zu erobern, oder eliminiere sie im Eliminationsspiel.

    Interaktive Umgebung



    Versetze Berge, um Wege zu verschließen. Brich Dämme, um Feuersbrünste zu löschen, oder entflamme Pulverfässer und schau' Dir an, wie sich Felsbrocken in tödliche Geschosse verwandeln.

    Sei fies, sei mies, spiel' Nox...

Box Cover (back and inside flip-out):
    Three Ways to Play
  • Should you select the Warrior, you can equip and use all manner of swords, battle-axes, war hammers, and chakrum - though you'll leave magical mumbo jumbo up to the Conjurer and Wizard classes. An enchanted weapon is the closest a Warrior get to magic.


  • If a career as Wizard appeals to you, you will explore the mystic art of spell casting, ranging from enemy-confounding illusions to devastating displays of metaphysical force. You'll also learn to set magical traps containing deadly spell combinations to thwart the unsuspecting foe. Although you'll have to renounce the use of ungainly swords and armor in the name of your art, you will still be able to wield a staff as a last-ditch physical defense.


  • Choose the path of the Conjurer, and you will be able to magically charm and summon creatures to do your bidding. You can even create a magical creature called a "bomber" which can wreak sorcerous havoc on your enemies. You'll also get plenty of experience wielding staves and bows to fend off enemies who manage to slip past your defenders.


  • Nox Is Fast Paced Action, Set In A Land Filled With Discovery And Deceit.

    Spells, Weapons & Abilities
    With over 100 different spells, weapons and abilities you can:
  • Crush an Ogre with the Fist of Vengeance!


  • Summon a blood-thirsty wolf to track down a sneaky opponent!


  • Conjure the Force of Nature to destroy a cavern full of ember demons!


  • Traps
    Set traps filled with diabolical spell combinations to ambush unsuspecting victims, such as:
  • Casting an opponent into a pit of lava or a room filled with venomous spiders and man eating bears!


  • Surprise them with an invisible trap that shed their armor and weapons leaving them defenseless for your ultimate attack!


  • Interactive Environment
  • Move rocks to block passages, break barrels of water to put out fires or blow up powder kegs and watch the debris turn into deadly shrapnel.


  • The innovative TrueSight system takes gameplay to an even higher level of suspense and excitement.
