Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura Wiki

Looking to enhance your Arcanum experience? Willing to add some spice to the original campaign? Then try out any of the hacks, patches or modules downloads below. Our assortment of Arcanum modules will keep you entertained for many evenings, featuring adventures both official and fan-made.

Arcanum Official Update[]

This is the last and final official update released by Sierra. If you have a base build from disk then you need this patch to make the game playable. The update comes in English, French, German, or Polish.

If you have the Steam or GoG version of the game then it is already patched, and this is not needed.

Arcanum Multiverse Edition (AME)[]

Multiverse edition is not merely a patching project. It's a mod. As such, things are changed. For example, pyrotechnic axe damage is changed. Now it also requires fuel to do fire damage. Charged axe uses charge and so on. Weapons are reworked. So, if you want a vanilla experience, consider the UAP or a stand alone patch / mod below.

Unofficial Arcanum Patch (UAP)[]

This is a complete and tested community patch that just polishes the game without adding any questionable content or changing the game play in any significant way. It basically fixes the most glaring bugs and restores a lot of content that got left out of the game. Extra dialogue, forgotten weapons, re-coded schematics, things like that. The patch also includes several new modules and scenarios, and a ton of optional beta content.

UAP 2.0.2 also contains many of the original (or modified) stand alone mods found below as optional add-ons:

  • High-Quality Town Maps
  • High Resolution Patch
  • High-Quality Music
  • Debug Mode
  • Official Troika Arcanum Modules (DLCs)

Fan Mods[]

  • Other Mods and Hacks - There are too many to list them all here, But the Terra-Arcanum download center has many more. The site is very confusing however. They have menus that require many clicks to fully expand. But it is worth the pain of navigating it to get to all of the other cool mods.
