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.
