Play as iconic characters Drizzt, Cattie-brie, Bruenor, and Wulfgar in the cop-operative action-RPG Dungeons and Dragons: Dark Alliance.

Announced in 2019, Dark Alliance is currently in development from Tuque Games – a Montreal studio formed by former Ubisoft veterans.

The game is a spiritual successor to Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance and is slated for release on June 22.

In the game, you and your friends will be fighting monsters that have invaded Icewind Dale in search of the Crystal Shard. As the iconic D&D characters created by R.A. Salvatore, you will be trying to thwart 30 different enemy types which range from five types of goblins to those damned Beholders.

The game focuses on combat and each playable character has more than 50 combat abilities to master. While that seems like quite a bit to master, thanks to the Emergent Combat system, those who are button-mashers will do “just fine” – but those who want a “more refined experience” can use specific guard breaks, executions, or team attacks for a sense of depth.

Progression will be in your hands, so you can choose the order in which to complete missions without restriction. Exploration is also encouraged, which means you can find a puzzle or secret room that grants loot, and replaying levels are also encouraged. You can event crank up a mission’s Challenge Rating to take on harder enemies and acquire better loot.

Here’s more:

  • Conquer Unstoppable Monsters – Pits players against some of the most legendary monsters from the world of Dungeons & Dragons. Frost giants, Beholders, White Dragons—muster the strength to defeat them all against insurmountable odds.
  • Fight Alongside Your Friends – Join up to four friends and fight together in a dynamic co-op experience with explosive real-time combat. Unleash devastating combos as you topple unstoppable monsters too powerful to go it alone.
  • Choose Your Hero – Play as one of four distinct heroes, each with its own unique playstyle and customizable abilities. Complete missions and vanquish bosses to unlock new skills and earn powerful gear, allowing players to take on even bigger challenges.
  • Brave the Frozen Landscape – Brings to life the world of Dungeons & Dragons like never before. Explore the frigid and dangerous world of Icewind Dale as you defend your homeland from armies of abominable monsters.

Dark Alliance will be released for PC via Steam, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
