Dungeons & Dragons is a franchise that’s well known amongst geeks the world over. With that in mind you can probably understand why, when a game is announced that has the name attached to it, you can be sure that a good amount of people will be working very hard to try and make it the best gaming experience possible.
After looking at the following screenshots it doesn’t look like Atari and Bedlam Games intend to disappoint with Dungeons & Dragons: Daggerdale.
Dungeons & Dragons: Daggerdale centers on the desperate struggle to defeat the evil Rezlus and his Zhentarim in their attempt to invade and conquer the Dalelands. Players are charged with the task of restoring order to the Dalelands by unlocking the secrets of the Mines of Tethyamar, defeating the evil within the treacherous Tower of the Void, leading to the final confrontation with Rezlus himself.
Atari stated that Daggerdale will contain combat, questing, character development, exploration and a pick-up-and-play feature. Two modes, campaign and freeplay, have been announced. Single and multiplayer modes also exist for the game, including split-screen multiplayer.
Some customization of the characters is provided as a player earns experience in the game, and character progression advances as per a limited set of 4th Edition Dungeons and Dragons rules for both class and race. Further customization is achieved through loot and equipment drops.
Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale is due to be released this Spring on Xbox LIVE Arcade, PlayStation Network and PC.
