Last night, Wizards of the Coast and Tuque Games announced Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance, a third-person action RPG that will launch worldwide on PC and unspecified consoles in the second half of Fall 2020.
The official press release explains that Dark Alliance is "an exciting, action-driven, hack-and-slash adventure filled with iconic monsters, legendary characters, and epic loot."
In an all-new trailer that debuted during last night’s Game Awards, Jeff Hattem, Founder of Tuque Games introduced millions of players to the game’s unique take on Drizzt Do’Urden and his legendary companions. Fans may recognize Drizzt from Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox.
In addition to plenty of monsters, brutal combat, and badass characters, the trailer is also set to a metal track, which is certainly a plus!
"From the moment I founded Tuque, our team has known that we wanted to bring our passion for D&D and creativity to the Dark Alliance series," said Jeff Hattem, Head of Studio, Tuque Games. "We’re taking players on an epic journey through the harsh and violent, Icewind Dale, where they’re going to need to use their wits, their weapons and their party members to help them survive the iconic monsters we’re going to send their way."
Featuring couch or online co-op for up to four people, fans can play as scimitar-wielding hero Drizzt Do’Urden or one of his unique companions Catti-Brie, Bruenor, or Wulfgar as they set out on an action-packed adventure in the icy tundra of Icewind Dale.
