Dungeons and Dragons: Dark Alliance Announced – TGA2019 John D December 12, 2019 Consoles, News The adventures of the rogue drow Drizzt Do’Urden started in 1988, 31 years old. The dark elf has gone on to become one of the most beloved Dungeons & Dragons characters, featured in more than 30 novels, but he and the iconic Companions of the Hall have never had starred in a video game of their own. Until now. At The Game Awards tonight, Tuque Games is announcing its first project since D&D publisher Wizards of the Coast acquired the studio this fall. It’s Dark Alliance, a “spiritual successor” to the PlayStation 2-era Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance games. It’s a four-player co-op action-RPG for PC and consoles coming in fall 2020, and it stars Drizzt, Bruenor Battlehammer, Catti-brie, and Wulfgar, the Companions of the Hall. It takes place after the events of R.A Salvatore’s The Crystal Shard (the characters’ debut), and Icewind Dale is its setting. Tuque sets out to capture the incredible action from Salvatore’s novels, which sees Drizzt and the Companions dispatch legions of foes with both brutal efficiencies and pinpoint precision — all with the spirit and trust of longtime friends who trust one another with their lives. Dark Alliance joins Baldur’s Gate III as triple-A game projects that Wizards of the Coast has announced this year. Dark Alliance also fills a space we haven’t seen in years on console and PC, couch-co-op action-RPGs with a split-screen. What do you think? Tell us in the comment section below.
