WIZARDS OF THE COAST ANNOUNCES DARK ALLIANCE
Wizards of the Coast and Tuque Games are proud to announce DARK ALLIANCE, a third-person action RPG, will launch worldwide on PC and consoles in the second half of 2020.
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.
“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, VP Digital Development for 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.”
A spiritual successor to the Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance series featuring popular characters created by best-selling fantasy author R.A. Salvatore, the new DARK ALLIANCE combines the pulse-pounding action of a hack-and-slash dungeon crawler with the progression and loot systems of a role-playing game.
“Drizzt and his companions are some of Dungeons & Dragons’ most recognisable heroes,” said Nathan Stewart, Head of Franchise for Dungeons & Dragons. “This all-new Dark Alliance will give players a visceral experience that drops them into the action of a Drizzt storyline like never before.”
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.
