Xbox One and PS4 Getting New Dungeons & Dragons RPG

Sword Coast Legends announced for consoles, as PC release date confirmed for September.


Sword Coast Legends, a role-playing game set in the Dungeons & Dragons Forgotten Realms universe developed by n-Space and Digital Extremes, is coming to consoles.

The game will launch "late 2015" for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, while the PC, Mac, and Linux versions are scheduled to arrive on September 8.

Sword Coast Legends director Dan Tudge said fans "clamored" for a console release following the game's showing at the Game Developers Conference earlier this year.

"So we circled back and figured out how to do it without compromising our vision for PC gamers," he explained. "This addition to our existing PC, Mac, and Linux versions ensures gamers will be able to have that classic D&D experience whenever, wherever, and however they want."

Sword Coast Legends aims to offer the "most true-to-form representation of classic tabletop adventuring ever" for a cooperative multiplayer game.

It has a "complex storyline," party-based gameplay, a variety of monsters to fight, and a soundtrack by Dragon Age and Fallout composer Inon Zur. Developers say they also have plans to support the game after launch with "robust" add-on content.
