Your Party. Their Funeral.
Welcome back Digidreamers, have you already spent a disproportionate number of hours on the Baldur’s Gate 3 beta and you still want more but Larian Studios can’t decide to give us a release date? We have the solution for you and it’s Dark Alliance, the first D&D video game released by Wizards of the Coast, which will land on June 22nd.
This co-op RPG is coming on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Xbox One. Are you ready to take on the role of Drizzt Do’Urden, Catti-brie, Bruenor and Wulfgar in an attempt to stop some of Icewind Dale’s fiercest villains from getting their hands on the Crystal Shard? To get started, enjoy the latest trailer.
The concept of Dark Alliance is simple. It’s you and your friends versus this alliance between legions of monsters. The monsters really started to take on a life of their own as we developed the game. In a way, they’re the stars of the show. They’re what you are going to remember when you talk about Dark Alliance with your friends.
There are more than 30 different enemy types in Dark Alliance. Each main faction of monsters gets its own mission structure that explores their architecture, culture, and even a bit of their daily practices. By centering each three-act mission around a faction, it helps us build a cohesive visual design that brings our world to life and makes our enemies more memorable.
This Dungeons & Dragons – Dark Alliance promises to be a co-op RPG with a strong Action component. Right from the start we will be able to choose whether to play in cooperative or single player mode. In the first case we will be able to choose between one of the four heroes born from the pen of the writer R.A. Salvatore, while in the second, it seems that it will be possible to use an alternation of the aforementioned heroes.
As for the choice of setting and characters, we at Digidreamers are super excited. What leaves us a little perplexed is the longevity, in the sense that a title like this will need constant post-release support in order to continue to be exciting even after launch. In our opinion, four selectable characters are a bit of a poor choice but we are sure that more heroes from the Forgotten Realms will be added after launch. And what do you think of it? The heroes of the Icelands will be able to win a place again in the hearts of us lovers of Drizzt Do’Urden and the narrative universe created by R.A. Salvatore more than thirty years ago?
