Sierra Studios has sent us four exclusive screens from its upcoming role-playing game Throne of Darkness. The game is being developed by Click Entertainment, a studio formed by a number of ex-Blizzard employees who worked on the original Diablo. In the game, players direct a group of seven different samurai against dragons, undead warriors, and eventually the Dark Warlord. The play style is a tactical interpretation of the hack-and-slash gameplay found in Diablo. For more information about the game, take a look at our Throne of Darkness preview.
Throne of Darkness is scheduled for release in early 2001.
