Arcanum creates a compelling new world where magic and technology co-exist in an uneasy balance. As Arcanum opens, the mechanical age has only just arrived in this ancient land where Humans, Elves, Dwarves, Orcs and other races are learning to co-exist in sprawling cities.

This radical shift from magic to technology has created a potentially explosive situation. As the townspeople and other thinkers begin mass production of light bulbs, batteries, eyeglasses and guns, the Mages grow leery. This is the starting point of the character's quest.

Imagine a place of wonder, where magic and technology hold equal sway, and an adventurer might just as easily wield a flintlock pistol as a flaming sword. A place where great industrial cities house castle keeps and factories. A place of ancient runes and steamworks, of magic and machines, of sorcery and science.

Arcanum allows gamers to assume the role of multiple characters or create their own, along with providing many paths to explore the world, ensuring the highest degree of replayability. The multiplayer component extends the life of the game and appeals to a large fanbase that enjoys co-operative and competitive play.
