Nox is a game of savage combat and sneaky tactics set in a mystical land filled with discovery and deceit. Nox's lightning-fast action is fueled by a combat system that's easy to use yet gives players tremendous gameplay depth and infinite possibilities. With more than 100 unique spells and weapons, players must use their wits to create devious combinations and tricky tactics. The battle happens in the world of Nox, which Westwood's game designers have filled with intricate detail. The top down viewpoint gives players an expansive view of the world. True line of sight means never knowing what's around the next corner, creating an intense level of suspense. The dynamic world of Nox is further enhanced with the addition of an advanced physics system that delivers realistic interaction between players and the environment. Roll boulders to block doors. Move candelabras to light a darkened room. Break through walls. Use water to extinguish flames. The single player game will take gamers through the three lands of Nox, pitting you against vicious monsters and powerful wizards. Driven by an epic story, you'll progress up skill levels and learn three schools of combat: the way of the Warrior, the knowledge of Conjuror, and the disciplines of the Wizard. Nox promises an intense multiplayer experience with five multiplayer options: deathmatches (teams and free-for all melees), capture the flag, and king of the realm. Multiplay will be supported through Westwood Online, an online gaming service with more than a million members.

Defeat Hecubah,
Queen of the Undead, Then Rule the Internet Battleground.

Set in a land filled with discovery and deceit, Nox is a fast paced action game.

[ Three Ways To Play ]
Choose the path of the Warrior and crush your opponents with power and speed. Learn the ways of the Wizards and watch enemies cower rather than face your power. Or, follow the path of the Conjurer and summon creatures of nature to do your bidding.

[ True Vision ]
This innovative line of sight system creates a high level of suspense and excitement.

[ Traps ]
Nox allows you to create your own traps and puzzles in solo and multiplay. Deviousness and cunning are positive attributes in this world. Imagine casting an opponent into a room filled with venomous spiders or into a pit full of lava.

[ Multiplay ]
Play over the definitive internet battleground, Westwood Online, team up with friends to capture the flag or dominate them in deathmatch.

[ Spells, Weapons & Abilities ]
Nox has over 50 different spells, weapons and special abilities. Summon a blood thirsty wolf to track down a sneaky opponent, conjure the Force of Nature to destroy a cavern full of demons, or mow down opponents with the Staff of Oblivion. Summon up to eight minions to do your bidding.

[ Interactive Environment ]
Move rocks to block passages. Break barrels of water to put out fires or blow up powder kegs and watch debris turn into deadly shrapnel.

Be cunning, Be Devious, Play Nox...

From official site:
"You are the 20th century savior of Nox - summoned to the land in a cosmic accident. Being from Earth, you are the only living being on Nox that may touch a magic Orb in the possession of the wicked-evil queen of the undead - Hecubah. You must find this Orb and harness its power in order to construct the staff of oblivion and defeat Hecubah.

NOX allows you to play as a conjurer, wizard, or warrior in both single player and multiplayer mode. Two multiplay modes, Quest and Arena, will revolutionize internet action gaming."
