The Dark Alliance series holds a special place in people’s hearts as one of the best ways console fans of Dungeons & Dragons could experience the Baldur’s Gate and Forgotten Realms settings without playing the Baldur’s Gate PC RPGs. Nowadays, with those games on console and D&D more popular than ever, Dark Alliance is coming back in 2020 with a familiar setting, famous characters and an all-new name – Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance.
Announced at The Game Awards, D&D: Dark Alliance is described by its developer, Tuque Games, as a spiritual successor to the Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance games, with all the loot and fantasy hack ‘n’ slash action you can handle by yourself, or with friends offline or online. Fan-favourites Drizzt Do’Urden, Catti-Brie, Bruenor and Wulfgar make up the games playable characters, making them playable in a game for the first time in years. “We’re taking players on an epic journey through the harsh and violent, Icewind Dale”, says Jeff Hattem, VP Digital Development for Tuque Games, “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.”
Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance is set to release on PC & Consoles sometime next year.
