Atari have announced another new title under the Dungeons & Dragon's license, titled Daggerdale and targeted at the downloadable platforms of PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Reportedly in the works at Toronto-based Bedlem Games [known only for Scratch: The Ultimate DJ], Daggerdale takes the form of an action RPG with the obligatory dungeons, dragons, swords, elves, dwarves and everything else you'd expect from a D&D licensed game.
Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale centers on the desperate struggle to defeat the evil Rezlus and his Zhentarim in their attempt to invade and conquer the Dalelands. Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale is an engaging multi-player experience that introduces a riveting narrative and treacherous new characters. Players are charged with the task of restoring order to Nentir Vale by unlocking the secrets of the Mines of Tethyamar, defeating the evil within the treacherous Tower of the Void, leading to the final confrontation with Rezlus himself.
Action-packed RPG gameplay allows for solo and co-op play for up to four players. Gamers use intuitive pick-up-and-play combat combined with a wide assortment of weapons, feats and powers to defeat a wide range of deadly enemies. Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale boasts an array of stunning levels and exploration opportunities set in the richly detailed environments.
