A critical success!
Dungeons & Dragons is hot right now — every other podcast is D&D-themed, everyone wants to join a game, and Roll20 is exploding in popularity (no thanks to the whole pandemic going on). Wizards of the Coast (WOTC), owners of the D&D franchise, wants to go beyond pen and paper adventures.
Dungeons and Dragons: Dark Alliance marks the first video game developed by WOTC, and expectations for it are high. Judging by the newly released gameplay trailer, it seems it will meet, or even exceed, those expectations. Take a look:
Dozens of D&D video games have been released over the years with mixed success but none have been directly developed by WOTC.
The game is set in the Forgotten Realms, one of the original campaign settings for D&D, and features real-time combat and co-op. The release date is June 22nd, and will be available on all major consoles, excluding Switch (for now). The best part? The digital edition is only $40.: in an era where new titles can cost up to $70, this is certainly refreshing.
