Fans of Baldur's Gate may want to check out the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons-based RPG game Sword Coast Legends.
I actually was turned on to the game one night at the pub when talking to a buddy of mine, Nick Potozniak, who also happens to be a big Star Wars fan.
Nick asked if I ever played Baldur's Gate in which I replied "of course" as it's one of my all-time favorite PC games (I'm still waiting for Baldur's Gate 3!). Nick then suggested Sword Coast Legends; we checked out some trailers, and I found additional info.
Sword Coast Legends gets released September 8th for PC, Mac and Linux, and hits PS4 and XBox One in late 2015.
Discounts are now available for pre-ordering the game through Amazon and various retailers.
Below you can check out Sword Coast Legends screenshots as well as the trailers.
Sword Coast Legends presents the most true-to-form representation of classic tabletop adventuring ever realized in a cooperative multiplayer video game. The game's highly innovative Dungeon Master Mode introduces players to an entirely new way to play Dungeons & Dragons with a real-time, active and reactive Dungeon Master in cooperative multiplayer sessions and campaigns.
Here are some of Sword Coast Legends features:
· Massive story campaign
· Complex storyline weaving throughout the exotic Forgotten Realms' Sword Coast
· Deep character customization, engrossing party-based gameplay and NPC interaction
· Highly customizable combat and challenging monster encounters
· Campaign creation tools for extended multiplayer adventures
· The latest streamlined fifth edition D&D rules
· Robust post-launch module expansion program
· Epic orchestral soundtrack from composer Inon Zur
