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.
