Sword Coast Legends Released

The vaguely D&D-inspired, co-op-centric RTwP RPG Sword Coast Legends by developer n-Space was originally supposed to be released early last month, but ended up getting delayed twice. Since then, it has become quite the source of entertainment, after its "Head Start" early access release sparked an immense wave of butthurt and rage among the furious customers who finally realized they weren't going to get the next Neverwinter Nights. At its climax, a very upset Dan O'Leary (CEO of n-Space) made an appearance in the game's official forums to personally offer refunds. Today, the game has finally been released, and it looks like the rage hasn't simmered down, because its Steam reviews aren't so hot. It seems there's no launch trailer, so here's a trailer they released for PAX Prime back in August, along with the game's description:

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.

Key Features:
  • Single player campaign created by members of the leadership team that brought you Dragon Age™: Origins
  • Choose from five playable races and six unique character classes to build your own stalwart adventurer
  • A return to form, SCL is the compelling and complex RPG you've been waiting for and features pause time, party-based tactical combat and involving storylines
  • Dungeon Master Mode: Create your own epic adventure to share with your friends, or enhance their experience in real time as they traverse your dungeon
  • Set in the Dungeons & Dragons Forgotten Realms universe based on the fifth edition ruleset and populated with Dungeons & Dragons lore and legend

A copy of Sword Coast Legends will cost you $40 on Steam. I do hope somebody here plays it, because I'm sure there's more entertainment to be had.
