Dungeons and Dragons Dark Alliance Announced for Consoles and PC

By Sam Quirke,
Wizards of the Coast and Livelock developer Tuque Games have revealed Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance. According to an interview with Eurogamer's Robert Purchese, Tuque Games' studio head Jeff Hattem said that this will be a "spiritual successor" to the Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance games of the original Xbox era, but they will have their own story.

The Baldur's Gate prefix has been dropped because the action has been moved into the Icewind Dale region of Forgotten Realms' continent of Faerun, giving Tuque Games a fresh start for their tales. The central characters will be The Champions of the Hall of the Icewind Dale trilogy of D&D novelisations written by R.A. Salvatore. Players can play as Drizzt Do'Urden, Cattie-Brie, Bruenor Battlehammer or Wulfgar. The game will feature split-screen and online co-op and the action is in third-person, but beyond that there's little known about the actual gameplay or structure. Hattem was very cagey in the Eurogamer interview, revealing very few details apart from the fact that it's not a free-to-play game.

Platform-wise, we only know that the game is coming to "consoles". It's expected to release in Autum 2020, which puts it vaguely in position to potentially turn up on the newly announced Xbox Series X.
