General | Latest Info

The spiritual successor to 2001 Baldurs Gate: Dark Alliance is coming next year, Wizards of Coast announced tonight at the Game Awards. Call Dark Alliance, action role - playing game is based on the Dungeons & Dragons Forgotten Realms campaign and will follow the exploits of Dark elf Drizzt DoUrden, created by fantasy writer R. Salvatore. Like the original game, Dark Alliance will have couch co - op and focus on cutting down orcs, wolves, and other baddies in search of experience points, gold, and ever more powerful loot. Up to four players will be able to play locally or online, taking on the roles of Drizzts companions, including Archer Cattie - Brie, dwarf Bruenor, and Barbarian Wulfgar. Tuque Games is a studio making Dark Alliance. Base in Montreal, it began working on games in 2017 and was eventually acquired by Wizards of Coast earlier this fall. Studios ' previous game, Livelock, was sort of like an apocalyptic, top - down shooter version of Diablo, so the switch to trying to make a modern Dark Alliance Game, which also had strong Diablo overtones, makes sense. Exhilaration of working together as a team to overcome odds and that final release of tension when everyone makes it out of the mission alive is something we are really striving to capture as part of the co - op experience in Dark Alliance, Kevin Neibert, Games lead designer, told Kotaku in an email. He specifically mentions games like Vermintide 2 as one of modern examples of that experience the studio is looking to. Original Dark Alliance was a PS2 game whose development team included Planescape: Torment and Fallout designer Chris Avellone. What it lacks in deep RPG systems and storytelling it makes up for with meaty action, where every sword slash and lightning bolt felt impactful. No one from the original game is working on the new Dark Alliance, but Neibert says Tuque is trying to stay true to that same style of fighting and impending sense of dread. One thing Neibert declined to comment on is whether Dark Alliance will always be online, even when playing alone or in couch co - op mode. The game is slat to come out some time in fall of 2020 on both PCs and consoles.

Gameplay

The console version of Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance is a real - time hack and slash / action role - playing game presented in 3D perspective, with rotatable isometric three - quarter top - down view. At the beginning of the game, character stats are presented with the player able to choose from three race / class combinations; dwarven fighter, human archer or elven sorceress. Players can customize their character's stats through gaining experience points from defeating enemies. Every time a character increases in level, points are awarded corresponding to that level; ie if a character increases to level twelve, player will gain twelve experience points to spend on the character's spells and feats. For every four levels which character increases, player is given one ability point to spend on one of six core attributes. Gameplay is linear, and each main quest must be completed in sequence before the story can proceed, although there are some optional side - quests, which do not have to be completed immediately. However, all side - quests must be completed within the act in which they are assign. There are relatively few NPCs in the game, with whom only those who are part of quest or side - quest may interact. Weapons, armor and items are only available for purchase from one location at a time, and become increasingly expensive and more powerful as the game progress. Hud features option to use either a transparent map that covers most of the screen, or a mini - map, with the player also giving the option to turn the map off entirely. The game also features cooperative gameplay with another player. Both players share the same screen, and are thus limited to how far they can move away from one another. In co - op mode, player who makes kill gets 60% of experience, and other players gets 40%. Whichever player collects any gold drops gets 100% of the value, with the other player getting nothing. The game contains four difficulty levels; easy, normal, hard and extreme. Extreme can only be unlocked after the player has beat the Gauntlet, special mini - dungeon is unlocked once the player completes the game on any difficulty level. The Gauntlet can only be played with Drizzt do urden. Extreme mode takes the form of the New Game Plus, and can only be played by importing saved character from another game. Once the player has completed Extreme mode, Drizzt do urden becomes available to use in the main game.


What is Dark Alliance ?

Dark Alliance takes place in the popular Forgotten Realms campaign setting for Dungeons & Dragons, same world where players can adventure in famous cities like Balduras Gate, Neverwinter, and Waterdeep in various D & D campaigns. However, this story is set in Icewind Dale. Aweare taking players on an epic journey through harsh and violent Icewind Dale, Jeff Hattem, VP Digital Development for Tuque Games, said in an official press release. They are going to need to use their wits, their weapons, and their party members to help them survive iconic monsters are going to send their way. Drizzt DoaUrden, famed drow Ranger created by R. Salvatore, is the party leader for this adventure. Heas is joined by companions Catti - Brie, Bruenor Battlehammer, or Wulfgar. Each represents a different action - orient archetype: Drizzt dual - wields swords, Cattie - Brie uses a bow, Bruenor has a battleaxe, and Wulfgar warhammer. Aweare greatly inspired by classes from game, Elliot tells Inverse. The four playable characters are true to the way they were written by RA Salvatore. The story might follow the Icewind Dale Trilogy featuring these characters, but it is unclear. Afrom timeline perspective, weare set quite far in the past as opposed to where the current timeline is in D & D, Elliot say. Athe overarching narrative drives the gameas premise: four Companions of Hall need to rise up to the challenge. Elliot also promised that the icy tundra of Icewind Dale will feature afrost giants, knolls, goblins, and a lot more.

Don't be one of those pillocks madly slashing air two feet to their left. Point two: Level fuck Up. Don't hoard souls because they re easily lost when you die. Later on in the game you might want to learn Fireball or Soul Arrow, just to have something to use against long - range enemies, but early on you 'll face no projectiles that good shield can't withstand. Dodging is also extremely IMPORTANT, because you can't shield forever if your stamina is being chipped away, so don't always go straight for armor with highest physical defense: your dodge roll becomes more of a pathetic flop when your equipment load is more than half of the maximum.
