I love the classic Dungeons and Dragons Forgotten Realms settings, places like Blackmoor and Greyhawk, Neverwinter and Icewind Dale and more. But you can’t think about Dungeons and Dragons without the Sword Coast, bound by Baldur’s Gate and Waterdeep. This is the setting for the exciting upcoming game Sword Coast Legends – just announced, and we have a trailer!

Sword Coast Legends

Developers n-Space and Digital Extremes just announced this new D&D campaign game with gorgeous visuals, four-player co-op, a DM (dungeon master) mode, and more. The developers come from a wide variety of backgrounds, with n-Space best known for Nintendo handheld games, project lead Dan Tudge was the Dragon Age: Origins director, and Digital Extremes is known for the Unreal and other games. Together they are working with the Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition rules sanctioned by Wizards of the Coast, and the game promises to work well for solo players taking a custom squad or online multiplayer co-op exploration. The game is planned for the PC only.

Set in the lush and vibrant world of the Forgotten Realms, Sword Coast Legends offers an all-new way to enjoy the time-tested magic of playing Dungeons & Dragons as a shared storytelling experience. With a deep narrative developed by a team of long-time industry veterans and a partnership with Wizards of the Coast, the single player campaign of Sword Coast Legends brings the world of Faerûn home like never before.

Sword Coast Legends also brings the roleplaying dynamic between players and Dungeon Masters to life with DM Mode, a first-of-its-kind real-time experience in which Dungeon Masters guide players through unique customizable adventures. In DM Mode, the Dungeon Master engages players and empowers them to have fun in a way that suits the party best while creating a tailored, non-adversarial 4 with 1 experience that any RPG or pen-and-paper fan will enjoy.

They are already accepting pre-orders which range from just the game all the way through massive collections. Here is the pricing:

I have loved technology for as long as I can remember - and have been a computer gamer since the PDP-10! Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life - I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a 'Laptop First' person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
