Though it's been known for quite some time, Interplay has officially announced that Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance is in development for the Xbox. The game is set in the popular Dungeons & Dragons Forgotten Realm campaign and was released earlier this year for the PlayStation 2. The game is a third-person action game that blends action with character development. Players will be able to choose from one of three archetypal characters--a magic user, a warrior, and a dwarf--and play through the game alone or cooperatively with a friend. As they progress through the game they will earn experience and be able to increase specific attributes in their character.
