Independent developers, n-Space and Digital Extremes, announced today that their upcoming Sword Coast Legends™, a party-based RPG set in the Dungeons & Dragons Forgotten Realms universe from Wizards of the Coast, will be released simultaneously on Steam for Windows PC, Mac and Linux operating systems in Q3 2015.
Sword Coast Legends fully supports cross platform network play on any mix of Windows, Mac and Linux machines. As further proof of the team’s shared commitment to gamers on all desktop platforms, each Sword Coast Legends Steam key can be redeemed for the player’s platform of choice.
When Sword Coast Legends releases later this year, it will introduce an entirely new way to play Dungeons & Dragons with Dungeon Master Mode and its introduction of real-time, active and reactive Dungeon Mastering. While Dungeon Master Mode is a truly innovative RPG “game changer,” Sword Coast Legends will also feature a massive single player campaign and complex storyline, deep character customization, engrossing party-based gameplay and NPC interactions, an epic orchestral soundtrack, high-quality professional voice-over production, and much, much more.
Announced in February, Sword Coast Legends has already captured the imaginations of RPG gamers worldwide and its first showing in March has generated overwhelmingly positive feedback to date, including:
- “I love the idea of the Dungeon Master as an active participant in the adventure, able to tailor each encounter to the strengths and weaknesses of the adventuring party based on the fly. And random DM loot drops? That’s just Christmas.” (Kotaku)
- “Sword Coast Legends is the closest you can get to real D&D without a d20.” (Digital Trends)
- “No video game has ever captured the essence of tabletop role-playing. Which explains why I was so excited when I left my demo of Sword Coast Legends last week.” (PC World)
- “Clearly, I’m excited for the DM features in Sword Coast Legends. Designing encounters seemed quick, easy, and intuitive – and for an added bit of hilarity, the DM can also assume direct control of powerful boss monsters…” (GamesRadar)
