While Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance was looking to be a successor to the Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance games from the mid 2000's, this new entry features third-person action combat, instead of a top-down isometric view. Additionally, the game includes single-player play and online co-operative modes featuring popular D&D characters - Drizzt, Bruenor Battlehammer, Catti-brie, and Wulfgar. However, the game will not have local co-op play. Various outlets have also gone live with previews for the game, including Polygon, Metro, Eurogamer, and others.
A debut gameplay trailer, description, and screenshot set can be found below.
