The release date of Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance has finally been set for 2021 coming to PC. The news was recently shared through a press release announcing a partnership between Wizards of the Coast and Koch Media.
The latter will in fact manage physical publishing activities around the world for Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance near the release date. Since it was announced during 2019 at The Game Awards, the cooperative action RPG hadn’t given any news, but it finally seems ready to enter the market.
A spiritual successor to the original video game series, Dark Alliance features popular characters created by best-selling fantasy author R.A. Salvatore, hacking and slashing their way through the icy tundra of Icewind Dale. The third-person action RPG will allow up to four players to take on legendary monsters from the Dungeons & Dragons multiverse as one of four unique characters, including the scimitar-wielding drow, Drizzt Do’Urden or one of his unique companions Cattie-Brie, Bruenor or Wulfgar.
Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance will therefore feature both local and online co-op mode for up to four players. The title will obviously be set within the vast universe of Dungeons & Dragons, and will feature four unique main characters such as Drizzt Do’Urden and his companions and many other famous characters created by successful fantasy author RA Salvatore, who will make their way to gunfire in the icy tundra of Icewind Dale.
The CEO of Koch Media Klemens Kundratitz further added the following:
We are delighted to welcome Wizards of the Coast as a new partner for our global publishing business. The high standards they set for their franchises and the passion behind their games ensure us that Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance is a perfect fit for our wide portfolio and will be a major success for both companies.
