Gamescom 2015: Sword Coast Legends delayed to September 29th

Fans of Sword Coast Legends are going to have to swallow a little bad news, as Wizards of the Coast announced at Gamescom today that the fantasy title will be delayed from its original September 8th PC release. The good news is that the delay isn’t too extreme; Sword Coast Legends will come out on computers on September 29th with console versions to follow in “late 2015.”

Game Director Dan Tudge explained that the move was necessary to ensure a great final product: “Our fans deserve nothing less than whatever it takes on our part to deliver the compelling roleplaying dynamic of Dungeons & Dragons tabletop to the world of cooperative multiplayer video games. If that means the game needs a few additional weeks of balancing, tuning and general polish — so be it.”

Sword Coast Legends also announced that players who pre-order the title will get its first DLC, Rage of Demons, for free. The basic game is $35, with the digital deluxe version set at $60 and the collector’s edition going for a whopping $240.

I would take the engine and art assets, make the combat more fluid and a little bit faster, add tons of classes, specializations and make this a PvE only dungeon crawler MMORPG. Yes, isometric with the same engine and art style.

paragonlostinspace I’m so glad it’s not going to be an mmo. It might actually be good instead of a shitty quest hub grinding disguise worn over a cash shop.

Always loved the Sword Coast area of The Forgotten Realms. Too bad this isn’t an mmo-rpg.

I’m not sure what 21 days can do, but I’m still curious about this title!

It’s basically a dungeon-crawler rpg with campaign-creation tools on the side, for those who want to create and run online game sessions with their friends.
Sort of an a modern style-homage to the old Neverwinter Nights single-player games, and the older games like Baldurs Gate, and the SSI gold box D&D computer games before that, I suppose.
Cheers,

BKone SirMysk You know what, I’ll take your word for it. Thanks for the feed back. I think I’ll just let this one slide by under the radar.

SirMysk This is an isometric game, but not a MOBA.

Did WoTC jump onto the moba band wagon?
