Independent developers n-Space and Digital Extremes have announced that “Sword Coast Legends,” the award-winning, party-based RPG set in the "Dungeons & Dragons Forgotten Realms" universe launched for PC, Mac, and Linux. “Sword Coast Legends” is also scheduled to release on the PS4 and Xbox One in Q1 2016.
Now available for purchase on Steam and other digital distribution platforms, “Sword Coast Legends” returns players to the lush and vibrant world of the Forgotten Realms with a deep story campaign. Developed by long-time industry veterans in partnership with the Dungeons & Dragons team at Wizards of the Coast, Sword Coast Legends brings the world of Faerûn to life like never before.
“Sword Coast Legends” also offers players an all-new way to enjoy the time-tested magic of playing "Dungeons & Dragons" with friends, bringing the roleplaying dynamic between adventurers and a Dungeon Master to life as a shared storytelling experience. With a first-of-its-kind real-time DM mode, “Sword Coast Legends” delivers a unique experience in which a Dungeon Master guides players through customizable adventures. Rather than focusing on the adversarial play typical of 4v1 games, the DM mode encourages DMs to engage and empower their players to have more fun in a way that best suits the group’s desired experience.
As D&D fans, we're thrilled to have the opportunity to revisit the Forgotten Realms universe as we set out to capture the spirit of adventuring and storytelling in a whole new way, We'd like to thank our amazing community of dedicated gamers who participated in our Head Start weekends leading up to today's launch. Their feedback was essential in helping us create a better game we hope players will enjoy for many years to come. Dan Tudge, President of n-Space and Director of Sword Coast Legends
With the director of "Dragon Age: Origins," and other industry veterans at developer n-Space who have contributed to "Neverwinter Nights" and "Baldur's Gate" leading development, Sword Coast Legends marks a return to the glorious golden era of PC gaming, dominated by complex, story-driven, party-based RPGs.
