It’s time to muster your party, as a new co-op DnD game has arrived. Dungeons & Dragons Dark Alliance is the latest offering from Wizards of the Coast and Tuque Games. Featuring hack-n-slash mechanics in real-time combat, it looks like the ideal cure for a DnD craving. Or monster-bloodlust.
Dark Alliance is the spiritual successor to Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance and its sequel, featuring characters and locations from R.A. Salvatore’s The Legend of Drizzt. And whilst it is possible to play in single player, as either Drizzt Do’Urden, Catti-brie, Bruenor Battlehammer or Wulfgar, we’d wager that a more authentic experience awaits in its online co-op mode. But then again, we would say that.
Either way, the title sets out to recreate the magic of the tabletop experience as closely as possible. For those DnD players who may lack the imagination required to picture their dramatic encounters in their mind’s eye, this title will surely provide the visual spectacle that their adventures deserve.“Whenever I’m at the table playing Dungeons & Dragons with my friends, I always anxiously await that moment in a scenario when the Dungeon Master says, ‘Roll for initiative’. That’s when you know things are about to get intense and dangerous,” said Jeff Hattem, Studio Head at Tuque Games and Creative Director for **Dark Alliance**. “We designed **Dark Alliance** from those moments in D&D campaigns; our game puts combat at the center of the experience and we can’t wait for players to feel what it’s like to battle a Frost Giant up close and personal.”
“Gathering a party and having fun with your friends is what Dungeons & Dragons is all about,” said Chris Cocks, President, Wizards of the Coast. “Launching Dark Alliance today marks a big milestone for Wizards of the Coast, in that we’re opening up new ways for friends to experience the epic combat scenarios they’ve been imagining for all these years.”
One thing that’s for certain is that the MMOGames team has been anticipating the next big co-op DnD game for a while. So watch this space as we dive into a game and release our review soon.
