Dark Alliance

Wizards of the Coast president Chris Cocks has revealed that the studio will be publishing “seven or eight” Dungeons & Dragons games, which will all feature single-player modes.

In an interview with GamesIndustry.biz, Cocks highlighted the importance of single-player gameplay by confirming that Dark Alliance and future Dungeons & Dragons games will feature single-player modes.

“We will have single player games; we think they’re important. There will be single player modes in all of our games.”

Furthermore, Cocks went on to say that the publisher will aim to explore new narrative story-telling in each game whilst deepening character design, boosting problem-solving, and combat strategy to create a thrilling experience for players.

Whilst details of the single-player modes are not yet known; in an interview with USA Today, Jeff Hattem, head of studio at Dark Alliance developer Tuque Games said: “You can play the game in single-player […] But the thing is, if you play it alone, you’re going to have a hard time.”

Dark Alliance was announced at The Game Awards 2019. The title is a third-person action role-playing game set in Icewind Dale and is set to launch late 2020.

  1. I would love to see a great D&D CRPG, but… damn, this trailer looks incredibly rough. The only thing that looked worse during Game Awards, was a terrible Fast&Furious game that looked like it was made in 2001.

    1. Yeah, those two were some stinkers during The Game Awards. We’re holding out hope this is better than that first impression indicated…

    2. Baldur’s Gate 3 has been announced by Larian, so CRPG should be set.

      I agree with this trailer sucking. I really hope it’s not the POV for playing.
