Remember Sword Coast Legends, the D&D 5E-based Forgotten Realms RPG from ex-Dragon Age devs that was announced back in February? The one that we weren't sure if it was going to be any good? Well, it become apparent soon after the announcement that it was going in a pretty popamole direction - cooldowns and all. Nevertheless, since E3 is coming and everything, I figured I'd post an update on it. Yesterday, the game became available for pre-order on Steam, and today it received a brand new E3 trailer, which is actually pretty well-done:


An accompanying announcement on the Sword Coast Legends official site has this to say:

We're excited to announce that Sword Coast Legends will now officially release on September 8, 2015, while today's newly announced Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game will become available late 2015.

"We've had a clear goal since day one to evoke the classic D&D experience between four players and a Dungeon Master, and to bring back memories of the great D&D games of the past," said Dan Tudge, President of n-Space and Director for Sword Coast Legends. "After we announced and demonstrated Sword Coast Legends to overwhelmingly positive response at GDC, the press, partners, and fans all requested more. They wanted Mac, so we're doing it. They wanted Linux, so we're doing it. They clamored for console... so we circled back and figured out how to do it without compromising our vision for PC gamers. This addition to our existing PC, Mac and Linux versions ensures gamers will be able to have that classic D&D experience whenever, wherever and however they want."

"We love that Sword Coast Legends delivers the authentic D&D experience by letting friends tell great fantasy stories together", said Nathan Stewart, brand director of Dungeons & Dragons. "With Sword Coast Legends being available on so many platforms, it doesn't matter if you game on a couch, at the kitchen table or your desk -- you'll be able to join your party for some glorious D&D dungeon delves."

Sword Coast Legends presents the most true-to-form representation of classic tabletop adventuring ever realized in a cooperative multiplayer video game. The game's highly innovative Dungeon Master Mode introduces players to an entirely new way to play Dungeons & Dragons with a real-time, active and reactive Dungeon Master in cooperative multiplayer sessions and campaigns.
That's right, console support - and no more than a couple of months after the release of the PC version. So much for being PC-exclusive. But I guess we should have known that was coming all along. Oh well, maybe it'll be good as a mindless Sword Coast romp.
