This isn’t the same Gauntlet your big brother played down the arcade in 1985. Or maybe it was you. I have no idea how old you are, and I have no need to know.

In development from the same folks who brought you Magicka, the zany game full of trigger happy wizards, Arrowhead Games Studio has modernized the Atari staple with local and online four-player.

Gauntlet is a top down hack-n-slash adventure with the Warrior, Valkyrie, Wizard and Elf exploring a dungeon filled with wonders and hordes of monsters.

It is now available for pre-purchase on Steam and scheduled for a September 3 release.
