If you’re old enough to remember the golden age of CRPGs, the last few years have been really exciting for you. Full remasters of various classic D&D CRPGs have come out. And now there’s completely new followup to that legacy that gives fans hope for a new generation. Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance is getting a spiritual sequel in Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance.
Jeff Hattem, head of Tuque games, had some good to say about the prospect of a new game. “From the moment I founded Tuque, our team has known that we wanted to bring our passion for D&D and creativity to the Dark Alliance series. We’re taking players on an epic journey through the harsh and violent Icewind Dale, where they’re going to need to use their wits, their weapons, and their party members to help them survive the iconic monsters we’re going to send their way.”
As shown in the reveal trailer, which can be found linked below, players will play as Drizzt Do’Urden. The players will go adventuring alongside the Companions of the Hall. You will see the full return of the classic RPG mechanics, but also there’s a return to the co-op that CRPG fans have always wanted. The main player gets Drizze, but Catti-Brie, Bruenor, and Wulfgar will all be playable, much to the joy of fans of the fiction.
